BOISE -- Boise State men's head basketball coach Leon Rice is a guy that never stops thinking about hoops.
He also knows how to relate to the players he coaches, young men ages 18 to 22.
Which is how he came upon his newest idea to becoming a better team.
"My son was watching this movie and it just came to me," said Rice. "This is our rebound metality, right there. Who could keep the zombies off the boards? Nobody. Right, am I right? So, that's our new motto of how we rebound. Like the zombies in World War Z."
Not a bad idea. Rice and his Broncos host Lewis-Clark State on Friday in an exhibition game at Taco Bell Arena.
Boise State is coming off one of its best season in recent years, including an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament.
