SERIES HISTORY: Utah State leads 28-9. The Broncos are 0-17 all-time on the road against the Aggies. Boise State won the first meeting this season (78-74, Jan. 18) to snap a six-game slide in the series.

DOUBLE-DOUBLE: Ryan Watkins is one of 14 players in Division I averaging a double-double (11.1 points and 10.7 rebounds per game). This is the latest point in a season a Bronco has averaged a double-double since at least the 1985-86 season (record of game-by-game statistics begins with the 1986-87 season). Only three times has a Boise State player averaged double-figure rebounds for an entire season, and only once has it happened since Boise State started competing at Division I (1970-71). Steve Wallace averaged 11.0 rebounds per game in 1971-72. Bill Otey averaged 17.3 in 1968-69 and 13.0 in 1969-70. Each also averaged double-figure scoring in those seasons and are the only Broncos to average a double-double at the end of a season.

BROPLEH'S BENCH PRODUCTION: Senior Thomas Bropleh has come off the bench to score 41 points in the last three games, hitting double figures in each. It is the first time in his career Bropleh has scored 10+ in three-straight games. He is 15-for-22 from the floor during the stretch, including 7-of-12 from three-point range.

GLASS STREAKS: Ryan Watkins has a double-double in seven of Boise State's 10 Mountain West games this season. Watkins is the only player in the coutnry to record a double-double in seven conference games this year. He recently saw a streak of six-straight double-doubles come to an end. It is tied for the third-longest streak in the country this season and is the longest streak at Boise State since at least the 1974-75 season.
