Boise State Puts Away San Jose State

The Bronco basketball team is on a roll. Boise State downed San Jose State 66-51 last night in Taco Bell Arena.

Boise State won its seventh straight with a 66-51 victory tonight in the last Western Athletic Conference game ever in Boise. That's a pretty good way to head into the WAC Tournament. The last time a Boise State team won seven consecutive games, Rod Jensen was the head coach. La'Shard Anderson once again led Boise State with 18 points. 6'7 forward Paul Noonan did not score inside, getting all of his 12 points on three-point shots while Westly Perryman had one of his better games of late with 11 points. Daequon Montreal cleared the boards for the Broncos with nine rebounds. Adrian Oliver had 30 points for San Jose State, but the Spartans were still held to season lows in points and field goal percentage (29.1%).

Boise State has a bye into the Western Athletic Conference Tournament semifinals with the #2 seed.

The Spartans did close to seven points with six minutes remaining. But Boise State responded down the stretch to claim the win.

Boise State is now 19-11 on the season and they finish their final WAC campaign with a 10-6 conference mark. The Broncos will play Friday at 9 p.m. in one of the conference semifinal games against the winner of the New Mexico State-Nevada/Fresno State game.
