Catching up with BSU Basketball

The 2007-2008 Boise State basketball team held its 10th annual reunion this past weekend in Boise. The squad which won a record 25 games and the WAC tournament, and went to the NCAA Tournament looked fit and ready to play. This team has special meaning to me because its NCAA tournament game in Birmingham, Alabama against Louisville was the last Boise State game I ever called.

The 25-9 Broncos were coached by Greg Graham with assistants Tim Cleary, Andy McClouskey and Julious Coleman. The team was 14-4 in the Western Athletic Conference, good for the fourth seed in the conference tournament. BSU won the title with an exciting 107-102 win over the host team New Mexico State in three overtimes. The game was played on the aggies home court.

Boise State was led by Reggie Larry, who averaged 19 points and nine rebounds. Matt Nelson, Tyler Teideman, Matt Bauscher and Anthony Thomas rounded out the starting lineup. The Broncos drew Louisville in the first round of the  NCAA Tournament. Louisville was coached by Rick Pitino. The Cardinals rolled past Boise State in the first round of the tournament 79-61 bringing the Bronco season and my play by play career to a close. The 25 wins by Boise State is tied for the most ever by a Bronco team. With a chance of a forfeit due to NCAA violations, this Bronco team could end up with 26 wins, and perhaps even an NCAA tournament win.

It was great to see that team back in town this week, and fun to joke and remember the way things were. All of the players seem to have grown from their BSU experiences.

I like the way Idaho has named its institutions of higher learning.  There are four four-year colleges or universities, and each has a unique name.  The one in Moscow is called the University of Idaho.  The one in Pocatello is called Idaho State University.  The one in Boise is called Boise State University.  And the…

Don’t count out the Broncos!

The Boise State Broncos had the table set for a nice win on Saturday afternoon against Mountain West Conference rival San Diego State. The fourth largest crowd in the history of Albertson’s Stadium was still settling in their seats at kickoff and the Broncos appeared ready. Appearances can be deceiving as BSU failed to move…

Worthington BLOG: Who Deserves Due Process?   I don’t know what is going to happen with the Kavenaugh investigation. If the FBI finds he has lied about anything, I personally would not vote to confirm him. On the other hand, if there is no new information, I really don’t see how he won’t be confirmed.…
