BOISE--  The Boise State basketball team will be back on the hardwood on Wednesday night taking on Utah at Taco Bell Arena. 

The Broncos have gotten out to a hot start to the young season, and have beaten their first two opponents by an average of 48 points.  BSU head coach Leon Rice expects more of a challenge from his upcoming opponent, though.  The Utes bring with them a storied basketball tradition, along with the experience of playing stiff competition in the PAC 12 conference.  Rice says he isn't concerned about his opponent, he is more focused on his own team. 

"Our focus is on ourselves," Rice said.  "We've got so much to get in and so much that we have to do. 

You've got to get better at what you do.  You can't spend all your time scouting someone or worrying about what they're doing.  At the same time we know their personnel because we played against them last year, but they've got a lot of new guys also." 

The Broncos and the Utes tip off at 6 p.m.
