Boise State played host to Colorado State on Wednesday night and the outcome was familiar. When analyzing the men’s basketball season, the record is disappointing, but the team has almost always been competitive. That wasn’t the case Wednesday. Last night, the Broncos-Rams games was crucial for seeding in the conference tournament.
Boise State struggled from the opening tip, consistent shooting continued to be an issue. Justinian Jessup had one of his best performances as a Bronco and RJ Williams had a solid effort off the bench. The rest of the team struggled to put the ball in the basket. We got a glimpse of a new lineup that might be effective for the Broncos. The season long struggles of Zach Haney and David Wacker haven’t produced their expected results and we saw a smaller lineup where RJ Williams played center.
Ultimately, the Broncos could never claw there way back into the game after falling behind double digits. Boise State was led by Justinian Jessup with 25 points and Nico Carvacho paced the Rams with 19 points and 14 rebounds. After the 76-62 loss, the Broncos have fallen to 11-17 overall and 6-9 in conference play. Boise State travels to Las Vegas on Saturday to take on UNLV.
