Larry & Nelson One Of Top Two Duos In Nation

Some college basketball teams feature two great scorers, others have two great rebounders on the same team. Boise State is one of only two teams in the nation with the same two players ranking in the top 35 duos in both scoring and rebounding. Reggie Larry and Matt Nelson are the dynamic duo averaging 34.6 points and 16.5 rebounds per game.

Boise State forwards Reggie Larry and Matt  Nelson are one of only two duos in the nation to rank in the top 35 in both scoring and rebounding.  Larry (19.2) and Nelson (15.4) rank as the 32nd best scoring duo in the country through games last night, a combined 34.6 points per game between them.  They are also the #11 rebounding duo in the nation as Larry is averaging 9.1 and Nelson 7.4.


Rider's Jason Thompson and Ryan Thompson are the only other duo to accomplish this feat.  They are the third best rebounding duo in the nation and rank 29th in scoring.  Jason is averaging 20.1 points and 11.8 rebounds while Ryan averages 15.0 points and 6.3 rebounds per contest.


Larry and Nelson have led Boise State to a 19-6 record and first place in the Western Athletic Conference with a 10-3 league mark.  The Broncos are just one win away from being the seventh Boise State team to win 20 games.  Boise State hosts Cal State-Fullerton Wednesday night at Taco Bell Arena, followed by a Saturday night clash with Siena in ESPN's "Bracket Buster" game, also at TBA.
