BOISE -- The Boise State Bronco men's basketball team (15-8, 5-5) faces off against the Aggies of Utah State University (13-9, 3-7) at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 8 at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum in Logan, Utah.
The Broncos have walked a fine line this season, and right now they sit at 15-8 overall, but they're actually not far from being 21-2.
In six on their eight losses, the Broncos have been within three points of the lead with 30 seconds to go in the game. Their latest heartbreaker happen on February 5, on their home floor, when they failed to finish.
On Friday, coach Rice talked about that final play against the Aztecs.
That's my job. Second guess everything we do, whether is good and bad, when you look at film, when you go 'Oh we coulda done this better,' we can do that better and how are we gonna do this, said Rice. We have a philosophy of what we do at the end of those games, is attack as quick as we can, and we didn't do a good job of that.
The Broncos might get a little boost Saturday when they take on the Aggies, as Coach Rice said Jeff Elorriaga, who is battling a bad back, will be a game-time decision against the Aggies.
