Boise State Broncos Basketball Schedule
The people of Boise, Idaho know that when college basketball season gets
underway there is no better place to be than Taco Bell Arena, home of the Boise State Broncos basketball team. Boise State
is a recent addition to the Mountain West Conference and they have immediately had an impact on one of the hottest conferences
in the nation. The Broncos finished near the top of the conference during their first year and made the NCAA Tournament but
last year finished with a.500 conference record and lost to New Mexico in the Mountain West Conference Tournament semifinal.
This year Boise State will be looking to improve upon last season's results and pull of some upsets of the more highly ranked
Mountain West teams as they build their resume for a spot in the NCAA Tournament in March. It is never an easy task for a
team to successfully navigate their way through a tough Mountain West schedule but the Broncos appear to have the talent and
motivation to do just that in the 2014-2015 season.
Once again the Boise State Broncos will be taking on all of the
top teams in the Mountain West including the New Mexico Lobos, the San Diego State Aztecs, the UNLV Running Rebels, the Nevada
Wolf Pack, and more. Boise State is new to the conference and still looking to establish rivalries but they have had several
close games with San Diego State and will surely be looking to exact revenge on New Mexico after losing to the Lobos in the
conference tournament. Boise State appears to be poised to accomplish great things this season and you will want to be there
at Taco Bell Arena to cheer them on to some big wins. Tickets to see the Broncos play in Boise always sell quickly so be sure
to get yours from StubHub as soon as possible.
Boise State Broncos Basketball History
Typically, the football
team gets all of the attention in the media at Boise State but the basketball team is looking to change that and have taken
great strides in accomplishing exactly that in recent years. Boise State has had an NCAA sanctioned basketball team since
it first became a four year college in 1968 and the school has won seven regular season conference titles along with five
conference tournament championships. The Broncos have participated in the NCAA Tournament six times, most recently when they
received the school's first ever at-large bid and lost to the La Salle Explorers in the First Four. Head coach Leon Rice has
helped establish the Broncos as a major force in the conference and he will have the team fired up and ready to go by the
time the season gets underway. All of the returning players are primed to score some big wins this season as they aim to make
their way back to the NCAA Tournament after missing out last season. This is an exciting time for the Broncos and their fans
and you will want to be a part of it right from the start of the 2014-2015 season.

In recent years the Mountain West Conference has emerged as a true national powerhouse. There are now eleven
members of the Mountain West Conference: San Diego State, UNLV, Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State, New Mexico, Nevada,
Fresno State, Wyoming, Utah State, and San Jose State. Previous members have included TCU, Utah, and BYU. Of the current members,
Utah State leads the way with twenty NCAA Tournament appearances. However, so far all of their appearances have come before
joining the Mountain West. UNLV and Wyoming, two charter members of the Mountain West, are next in line with 19 and 14 respectively.
UNLV and Wyoming are also the only two members of the conference to win a National Championship, with UNLV winning in 1990
and Wyoming winning all the way back in 1943. Lately it has been San Diego State, New Mexico, and UNLV who have dominated
the conference on the basketball court with SDSU tearing up the national rankings during the 2013-2014 season.
Attending a top college basketball game is one of the best experiences to be found in sports. Many of the
top student athletes in the world take the court in college basketball, when this is combined with some of the most passionate
fans in all of sports there is an atmosphere in the arena that cannot be found anywhere else. When you set foot into Taco
Bell Arena for a Boise State Broncos home basketball game this will all be clear. As the teams set up for opening jump ball
the fans get on their feet and loudly cheer for their alma mater and hometown favorites. The game continues full of end to
end action, big time shots, and clutch defensive stops. All of a sudden the clock is winding down in the second half and the
two sides are wrapped up in yet another tight contest. Your palms get sweaty with each trip down the floor and each time a
player from your favorite team lets loose a shot you hold your breath until the ball tickles the twine. This continues until
the final buzzer when the Broncos' side erupts after another big win and their fans exit of the arena in jubilation. The minute
you leave Taco Bell Arena you will want to begin your next trip back to help cheer on the Broncos.
State have enjoyed significant success since first becoming a part of the NCAA in 1968 and have only had one season in the
history of the school where they did not tally double digits in terms of wins. Of the five conference titles the Broncos have
won, four of them came during their time as a member of the Big Sky Conference with the other being a WAC championship. Based
on the program's early success in the Mountain West it appears that a Mountain West Conference championship can't be too far
