BOISE -- The Boise State basketball team, and its new head coach Leon Rice, opened the regular season with a 78-52 win over Western State on Saturday night. 

The Broncos got off to a bit of a slow start, but took the lead for good on a Reggie Arnold bucket at the 14:21 mark of the first half.  Arnold had 16 on the night, but he wasn't the only senior making a difference. 

BSU was lead in the scoring department by senior LaShard Anderson who poured in 20 points, added 6 assists and grabbed five rebounds. 

Boise State's stud off the bench was Paul Noonan.  The senior from Beaverton, Oregon had 9 points all from behind the arc where he was 3-of-4 on the night. 

The Broncos are off until next Friday (11/19) when they hit the road to take on the University of San Diego and then on Sunday (11/21)they  take on UC Davis before returning home to take on Eastern Washington on the 24th.
