BSU Basketball Coach Leon Rice: We Have Grit!
Last year Boise State couldn't win a close basketball game and so far this season they refuse to lose.
Head coach Leon Rice calls it "grit" and says his players simply aren't giving up the fight.
The Broncos took BYU to overtime at Extra Mile arena, a BYU team that earlier this week beat UCLA by 15 points at the Maui Classic. The Broncos then survived a three over time game at Pacific in which two players, including leading scorer Derrick Alston fouled out and three others finished with four fowls.
That's four periods of overtime in which the Broncos refused to give up and now according to coach Rice, they believe because they've done it.
The Broncos are back home Friday night at 7pm hosting UNC-Wilmington and it was announced today that Boise States game against Colorado State December 7th has been moved to a 7pm tip-off.
The move is to accommodate Boise State fans who attend the BSU football game at 2pm vs. Hawaii for the Mountain West Championship.
Fans with tickets to the football game can buy tickets for the basketball game for just 5-dollars while that supply lasts.
