March Madness has arrived! Boise State and Colorado State kicked off the men’s tournament during the dreaded Monday morning play-in game. It’s been an up-and-down season for both teams, with the Rams blowing out the Broncos at Taco Bell Arena (can confirm, no actual Taco Bell is served in the arena) a few weeks ago. That wasn’t the case this time around, as Boise State defeats the Rams and advances to play the 1-seed Nevada Wolf Pack.
The shock campaign littered with bad luck that was the 2018-2019 Wyoming Cowboys Men’s Basketball season is finally over. Like many times this winter, the Pokes punched above their weight and gave their opposition a fight, but it wasn’t enough to defeat a Lobos team experiencing a down year themselves in the afternoon play-in game. Lobos will take on Utah State on Thursday.
Another brutal season has come to an end for Spartan basketball, but the Mountain West dark horse that is Air Force continues on. After a slow start, it was business as usual for a Falcons team that will take on Fresno State on Thursday.
The Boise State Women’s Basketball team has won the Mountain West Conference Tournament for the fourth time in the last five years, after defeating a strong Wyoming team 68-51 on Wednesday. Dominance. The Broncos will play in the NCAA Tournament once again, a fate they’ll learn Monday.
