San Jose State Stuns Boise in Final Home Game

The Spartans win their fourth conference win against a quality opponent. Yes, only four conference wins but consider that the team hadn't beaten a D1 opponent since two years ago, that's one heck of an accomplishment. Hey, I write baseball but this deserves some ink (or electrons, whatever).

Spartans Don't Fold Down Stretch in 68-63 victory over Boise State

The game had all the signs of a fold for the Spartans as they sometimes have troubles at the free throw line. Not this time as they hit 20 of 25 freebies which, at 80%, is very good. Senior Princeton Onwas scored 12 of his 14 points from the line. So, case in point. Most of the season they have been led by either senior Frank Rogers (12.2 ppg) or freshman Brandon Clarke (8.4 ppg). Clarke has been big the last few games and the freshman dominated starting lineup is starting to kick up its heels a bit. Second leading scorer is Ryan Welage (10.6) who is also a freshman as is Cody Schwartz at 7.4 ppg. That group of three frosh will be around for a couple of years so get used to hearing those names.

Boise was led by Anthony Drmic's 13 points in a losing cause.

San Jose State goes in as the #11 seed in the upcoming tournament and they should not be taken lightly. They are playing fairly well right now and could surprise. It's madness, remember?
