Boise State's leading scorer Derrick Marks, three others suspend for Wyoming game

USA TODAY Sports

Boise State is going to be without their best player Derrick Marks, along with three other players for Wednesday night's game against Wyoming.

The Boise St. Broncos already were going to have a tough time beating the No. 25 ranked Wyoming Cowboys in Laramie, Wyo., however that task has increased exponentially as four Boise State players have beens suspended.

The players to not make the trip are leading scorer Derrick Marks, redshirt freshman guard Michael Thompson, senior post Kenny Buckner and redshirt freshman forward Darrious Hamilton.

The players have been suspended to the vague violation of team rules. Losing Marks is a big deal as he averages 16.5 points per game, leads the team in assists with four per game and is a defensive presence by leading the Mountain West with 2.29 steals per game.

Thompson is also as he was in the starting lineup in the Broncos win over Walla Walla University last Saturday. The length of the players suspension is not known. Boise State will now need Anthony Drmic and Jeff Elorriaga to step up their game if they are going to have a chance to pull off an upset over Wyoming.

With these four players out of the lineup, expect Wyoming to cruise to their 14th straight game of the season.
