BOISE -- The Boise State Men's Basketball team (18-9. 8-6) is set take on the Bulldogs of Fresno State University (14-14, 7-8) at 7:00 p.m. MST on Wednesday, February 26 at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California.
The Boise State hoops team has fought back and have worked its way into bubble talk for the NCAA tournament, or at least on the edge of the talk.
The Broncos don't have that signature win, but they do have some recent clutch wins over New Mexico and UNLV at home.
They've won 18 games, and currently sit tied for third place in the Mountain West.
With four games to go, the Broncos could make a solid case to be an at-large bid.
It something they think about, but not too much.
Well I always want them to understand, see the forest for the trees. I mean, they have to know what's going on around them, and have to know that everything's in their control, but I don't wanna pile the pressure on them, said head coach Leon Rice. The focus is just on, let's just play our best, and if we play our best, and our best energy, our best emotion, then we'll have a great chance, and we're going to put ourselves in a good position.
While the Bulldogs are coming off a 79-76 win against Utah State University.
