It was 44 degrees at game time in Boise, with showers prevailing.The temperature obviously was much more comfortable inside Taco Bell Arena, at least for BSU. But it was also raining inside, with Bronco shot attempts and makes, and Coach Leon Rice's team was comfortable with that 'precipitation' from the get-go and prevailed 66-51.
For the game Boise State shot 46% (11 treys) to 29% for SJSU.
Adrian Oliver led the Spartans with 30 points.
Worth noting even if it a case of coincidentalism: BSU is 8-0 this season in games when senior forward Paul Noonan makes three 3-point shots. Now it's 9-zip as Noonan reached his trey trifecta, plus one.
At the half, it was 32-26 in favor of the Broncos. Oliver had 15 at that point, becoming one with the foul line throughout the initial 20 minutes. For the evening, he went 12-14.
*** Also worthy of mention due to the remarkable point differential is that Utah State defeated host Louisiana Tech tonight 72-30. Wow.
