The Broncos and the Purple Aces will be the first matchup in the Mountain West / Missouri Valley Conference. The Broncos are, currently, 3-0 against the MVC in these challenges, and the hope is to continue that success. While Boise State has been fiery in their previous games this year, averaging 39.8 points in the first half and having double-digit leads in their last three games, the second half seems to be their particular kryptonite. If the Broncos are able to fire the engines like previous games, the second half performance needs to match.
Chandler Hutchison has stepped up big for the Broncos, as well as newcomers Justinian Jessup and James Reid. If the Broncos can keep their offense up in the second half, limiting certain fouls on Robin Jorch, and Nick Duncan finding his three ball, the Broncos should be able to walk away with the win today against the Purple Aces.
