Boise State has entered the Loyola portion of their early season home schedule...having knocked off Loyola-Marymount at the Taco Ballerina on Saturday and getting a Loyola rubber match tonight against Loyola-Chicago (7-0). If you were unsure how many Loyolas there were, I can now comfortably assure you—more than one.

The big question for this evening for the Broncos (5-1) will be whether Chandler Hutchison will be playing. Hutchison banged his head hard on the gym floor in the championship game of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off tourney against Iowa State and missed all but four minutes of that contest (a Bronco loss) and was held out Saturday against LMU as well. The Broncos could certainly use his shooting, rebounding, and general awesomeness this evening against a tough team from the Missouri Valley Conference.

Boise State is 3-1 in MW/MVC Challenge games to date, with their only loss in the annual series coming at the hands of Evansville last season. Loyola-Chicago, for what it's worth, are off to their best start since 2010 and have four players averaging double-digits in scoring (Marques Townes, Clayton Custer, Donte Ingram, and Aundre Jackson). Boise State sophomore Justinian Jessup is coming off the finest performance of his young career—dropping 22 on LMU last weekend.

A live stream of the game can be found [HERE] and of course, will be live on the radio at 670 KBOI or online streaming at [THIS LINK]. I'll be live-tweeting the game from courtside at TBA and will also be along after the game with your recap and presser. Stay tuned...GO BRONCOS!
