76-61 Final

Boise State had to resort to fouls at the end and it didn't get them anywhere.  The Lobos extended their lead to 76-61 at the end.

Boise State Falling Apart

The Broncos had a 54-51 lead at one time--it's now New Mexico 68, Boise State 58, a 17-4 run.  The Lobos are bidding to win the regular season in the Mountain West.

Broncos Up 54-52 with 6 minutes left

If Only They Could Play This Way All the Time...

Boise State has taken a 46-45 lead on #29 New Mexico with 10:40 left.

Kraychir Wins Weight Throw at UW Last Chance Qualifier

Boise State strongman Trevor Kraychir bested the competition to win the weight throw today at the University of Washington Last Chance Qualifier Track Meet.

Kraychir, the champion in the Mountain West, was trying to qualify for next week's NCAA Indoor Championships in Nampa, Idaho.  He won the event with a throw of 66' 2.25", but was a little over four feet shy of automatic qualifying.

Boise State Hanging With New Mexico

But then of course they're a ranked team and Boise State plays its best ball against top teams.  Jeff Elorriaga and Ryan Watkins have nine points each.

Halftime Score from The Pit:  New Mexico 35, Boise State 30.

Schedule for Today

The Boise State men's basketball team closes the regular season at Mountain West power New Mexico; the Lobos have been playing well, beating both UNLV and San Diego State recently.  That game is set for 2 in Albuquerque.

Don't forget the women's tennis team hosts Utah, the team added to the Pac-12 instead of Boise State.  The match is slated for the Appleton Tennis Center at noon.  Still time to get down there and cheer on the Lady Broncos.
