Not too shabby, says I.
Paris Austin led all scorers with 18 points. He had 5 rebounds and 2 assists to go along with that. Haney scored 2, but hauled in 10 rebounds. The Broncos had 5 players score in double digitals. Accompanying Austin in the feat were Hobbs (16), Jessup (14), Hutchison (11) and Reid (10).
The Broncos shot 47% from the field (28-59) and 22% (4-18) from beyond the arc. While the 3-pt line was not their friend today, the free throw line was. BSU shot 83% (25-30) from the foul line.
The Broncos have a chance at another 20-win season again this year, but first have to get past Fresno on Tuesday at the Bell. Come out to support the Broncos for their last regular season home game. Go Broncos!
