Bronco assistant has created a great defensive unit.

Boise State assistant men’s basketball coach Mike Burns deserves a lot of credit for turning the program into one of the best defensive teams in the country. Currently, he has helped the Broncos rise to the 9th best defense in the country according to KenPom. At the foundation of his philosophy is Dick Bennett’s old pack-line defense, which focuses on keeping all defenders inside the three-point line except when on the ball. Burns has brought 30+ years of experience to the floor and it has led to great success the past two years.
