Boise State Men Ready to Defend #1 Seed

Boise State will try for its second Mountain West Conference title in school history when the Bronco tennis team heads into the MWC Tennis Championships this weekend in San Diego.

The Bronco swimming and diving team captured the first-ever Mountain West title for Boise State just a few months ago and Coach Greg Patton's Broncos are seeded #1.  The bad news is that the team with the best shot at knocking them off, San Diego State, gets to host the tournament, a huge advantage for the Aztecs.

Boise State and San Diego State both get first round byes.  #4 TCU and #5 UNLV open the tournament Friday morning at 11 with #3 New Mexico facing #6 Air Force, also at 11.  Boise State will meet the winner of the TCU-UNLV match Saturday morning at 11 while San Diego State gets the other winner.  The championship match is set for Sunday morning at 11 with the winner getting an automatic invitation to the NCAA National Tournament.

Blue Through and Through will have complete results as they happen.
