It's official!! @TacoBellArena is going to be rocking tonight! #BleedBlue pic.twitter.com/PecLIqk33k
Taco Bell Arena is SOLD OUT for tonight's tussle with the San Diego State Aztecs, which of course means that a) it's gonna be LOUD, and b) Leon Rice better dust off his hip waders, cuz he's going for a stroll across the Boise River (and not via the conventional bridge method). If you're one of tonight's attendees, make sure to wear blue (it's air conditioned in TBA, so you can wear blue under your coat) and help our boys to victory.
Chandler Hutchison is inching toward 20 points per game (18.3 at present) and leads the Broncos (14-3) in two other categories as well—the good ones: rebounding and assists. San Diego State (11-4) is coming off a rout of San José State and have 4 players averaging double-digit points per game—the best of the bunch being junior Devin Watson. Still, the Aztecs are 3.5 point 'dogs to the Broncos and the hostile home crowd should make that advantage even more pronounced.
If you were unable to get a ticket to the game (understandable...they're sold out, after all) you can tune into the game on ESPN2, but if you don't like Sam Farber...you can mute it and tune in to 670 KBOI for the homer call from Bob Behler. Damien will be courtside bringing you the action from the twitter mothership, and won't hog the Boise State beanies (free to the first 5k fans).
