SCOTT SLANT: Frustration near the Strip

Presented by the ASHLEY INN OF CASCADE. Thursday, February 27, 2020. This was a game Boise State needed, but it’s a helpless feeling when the ball won’t go in the hoop. The Broncos made only seven first-half field goals, and that essentially was enough to allow UNLV to keep them at bay at the end…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: The timing at Thomas & Mack

Presented by WESTERN SIDING. Wednesday, February 26, 2020. Boise State is not exactly catching UNLV at the right time as it ventures into the Thomas & Mack Center tonight.

SCOTT SLANT: RJ’s upward climb in conference

Presented by THE ASHLEY INN OF CASCADE. Tuesday, February 25, 2020.

SCOTT SLANT: Senior of the Day on Senior Day

Presented by WESTERN SIDING. Monday, February 24, 2020. It’s harder for fans to remember junior college transfers than four-year players as the years go by.

SCOTT SLANT: Senior Day already?

Presented by BBSI. Friday, February 21, 2020. It seems like just yesterday that Justinian Jessup started his Boise State career, draining shots from beyond the arc as a fuzzy-faced true freshman from Longmont, CO. But Jessup has one home game left—Sunday afternoon against New Mexico. There were some high bars set prior to Jessup’s arrival:…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: A turnover-fest offset by assists

Presented by BBSI. Thursday, February 20, 2020. You won’t see a DVD of this game in the Naismith Hall of Fame, unless it’s in the “Assists” display.

SCOTT SLANT: The need to pay attention

SCOTT SLANT: The need to pay attention

Presented by BBSI. Wednesday, February 19, 2020. Boise State plays at San Jose State tonight. How could this be a trap game, you scoff? You need only go back four years, when the Broncos were a week removed from a miracle final-minute rally that beat San Diego State 66-63 in Viejas Arena. They promptly laid…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Devoured by the Aztecs ‘D’

Presented by GREENWOOD’S SKI HAUS. Tuesday, February 18, 2020. Could Boise State improve on the 18-point loss it suffered in Viejas Arena last month?

SCOTT SLANT: What will it take Sunday?

Presented by CLEARVIEW CLEANING. Friday, February 14, 2020. If Boise State created a wish list for its performance against No. 4 San Diego State Sunday afternoon in ExtraMile Arena, it would go something like this: Derrick Alston and Justinian Jessup shooting 50 percent from the field; Abu Kigab shaking off the rust and scoring in…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: High-echelon hoops visits

Presented by MAZ-TECH AUTOMOTIVE. Thursday, February 13, 2020. San Diego State brings its No. 4 standing in the polls into ExtraMile Arena on Sunday.
