Anthony Drmic Looking To Finish As One of Boise State's Best

Drmic is one of the most complete players the Broncos have ever had.

BOISE, Idaho--Anthony Drmic is one of eight Boise State basketball players in school history to rank in the all-time Top 10 in eight or more categories.

That statement says a lot about the popular Aussie's contributions to the Broncos and their rise to being a consistent 20-win program.  First, coach Leon Rice recognized Drmic's abilities early and started him for much of Anthony's freshman season.  Second, there are many players who excel in one part of the game--one might be a great shooter, another a fantastic defensive player adept at steals, another might control the boards, and still another might put on a three-point shooting exhibition--Drmic has done all of these.

Drmic is currently tied for second in career starts with 111, seven behind the school record set by Chris Childs (1985-1989).  Drmic ranks third in career three-point field goals with 247, third in three-point attempts (694), fourth in career points (1,748), fourth in field goals with 563, fourth in field goal attempts (1,310), fifth in free throws with 373, fourth in free throw attempts (489), 

Childs and Coby Karl (2003-07) lead the list of all-time greats by ranking in the career Top 10 in 11 categories.  Tanoka Beard (10 from 1989-1993), Steve Connor (1975-79), Roberto Bergersen (1996-99) and Derrick Marks (2011-14), all in the Top 10 in 9 categories, and Abe Jackson (1988-92) are the others whose overall games are in Drmic's league.  Further, Drmic's current career scoring average of 15.1 is six-tenths of a point behind Jackson (15.7 ppg).  Drmic's career free-throw percentage of 76.3% is a little more than 2 percent behind #10 Darnell Woods (1992-95).

Besides already landing in the career Top 10 in eight categories, Drmic is closing in on several others.  He is 11th in rebounds with 533, 10 behind Steve Wallace (1970-2) for 10th, and 51 assists behind Doug Usitalo (1986-88) for 10th in that department.  Drmic ranks 13th in games played with 116, four behind Jason Ellis (2001-05).

In Drmic's first year under Coach Rice, the Broncos were 13-17.  Since then, Boise State has gone 21-11, 21-13 and 25-9, and with the nation's fifth-longest winning streak at 10, the Broncos could be headed for a fourth straight 20-win season for the first time in school history.

Make no mistake about it--Drmic has been one of the key components of Rice's winning formula, and Bronco fans are looking forward to every basket, rebound, assist and steal that #3 can manage over the rest of the season.
