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.
