In the game for third place in the Wooden Legacy Tournament, Boise state lost to Arizona (again), by a score of 68-59. But take some consolation in this: First, we had to beat a tandem of giants from UC Irvine, and then we lost to #3 Michigan State by 10 points. While a loss doesn't sound like progress, consider the fact that at one point in the game we were beating Michigan State by 7 points, and Michigan State beat their other opponents by 13 points and 31 points. So hey, I'll hang my hat on that!
