Broncos Survive Grizzly Attack—Win 72-67 in 2OTs

Anthony Drmic led all scorers with 29 points

Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

The home opener for the Boise State almost ended with an upset and a serious re-evaluation of the team's potential—maybe the second part is still true. The Broncos held on to defeat the University of Montana Grizzlies 72-67 in 2OTs and never really had control of the game until the waning moments. Anthony Drmic led all scorers with 29 points on 9 for 17 shooting, including 4 for 9 on three-point field goals.

Derrick Marks finished with five points on 2 for 10 shooting and 1 for 3 from the free throw line and is now averaging a paltry 8 ppg in the two games following his one-game suspension. His performance so far begs the question, where has Derrick Marks gone? I'll be the first to admit that I have been critical of the senior star, but his play has looked rather cavalier, especially considering that he is coming off a suspension. I want to see the Derrick Marks that plays with bravado. That Derrick Marks I can live with.

The Broncos have a lot of work to do. It's pretty obvious they haven't quite meshed yet as a team and, with a game on Saturday against #3 Wisconsin, they better figure some things out quickly or the worst loss of the Leon Rice-era might be on the horizon.
