BOISE - It was a senior day to remember as the Boise State women's basketball team rallied from down double-digits to defeat the University of Wyoming 61-53 at Taco Bell Arena on Saturday afternoon.

Trailing by 13 with 18:07 left to play, Boise State slowly chipped away at the deficit to give itself a chance at the end.  Senior Heather Pilcher converted a three-point play with 3:34 remaining to give the Broncos their first lead at 52-49.

Junior Kinzi Poteet came alive in the second quarter as she scored 16 of her career-high 18 points in the final 20 minutes.  The 13-point comeback victory was the largest deficit Boise State has overcome this season, as they improve to 14-14 overall and 5-8 in conference play.

The Broncos closeout the regular season this coming Wednesday when they travel to league leading San Diego State (21-6, 11-2 MW).  Tipoff is set for 8:00 p.m.
