BSU Hoops Lots to Cheer About
Just how good is the Boise State men's basketball team? I know, they're 8-1 having lost only to Iowa State s they must be really good but are they scary good? Is this the Boise State team that can finally break through in the NCAA Tournament and get at least a first round victory? I can already hear head coach Leon Rice telling me to back off, don't get so far ahead of myself lets talk one game at a time like Sacramento State coming to Boise this Saturday at 2 p.m. Okay, let's do that, lets talk one game! Last night Loyola-Chicago went to 5th ranked Florida and beat the Gators 63-59. The Ramblers are 9-1 and that one loss was a blow out 87-53 defeat to Boise State. I know comparing scores is an unscientific way to evaluate teams but all of a sudden the Broncos destruction of a then undefeated Loyola-Chicago team looms all that much larger now that the Ramblers have upset a top 5 team in Florida. Should the Broncos beat Sac State Saturday to go 9-1 we might just be talking about a Boise State basketball team getting votes in the polls. Football make room, the BSU Hoopsters are making some noise, getting attention and starting to pile up victories.
