FIRST TIME AROUND: On the strength of seven Lonnie Jackson three-pointers Boise State picked up a 10-point road win at Wyoming, Jan. 23. Jackson scored 21 points as the Broncos overcame a first-half deficit to win 81-71. Cowboy star Josh Adams missed the game serving a suspension.

LAST TIME: Boise State men’s basketball lost in double overtime Wednesday, at Colorado State, 97-93. At the end of the first overtime the Broncos had a game-winning three-pointer disallowed after officials reviewed the play and ruled there was a timing error. The Rams scored the first nine points of the second overtime and held on for the win.

FITTING RIGHT IN: Montigo Alford started for the Broncos Wednesday, his first start since Nov. 16. Alford scored a career-high 25 points, including 7-of-11 shooting from three-point range.

CENTER STAGE: Montigo Alford earned a surprise start at Colorado State (Feb. 10) and obliterated many of his career highs. In 35 minutes, Alford scored 25 points and knocked down 7-of-11 three-pointers. He had played 32 minutes in the previous five games combined, was 7-for-24 from beyond the arc on the season and had scored 19 points total in conference games up to that point. It was the first 20-point game of Alford’s career and just his fifth time in double figures.

18 TRIPLES: Boise State made a school-record 18 three-pointers in its double-overtime loss at Colorado State (Feb. 10) on 18-of-35 shooting (51.4 percent).  It was also the highest three-point shooting percentage of the season and the first time the Broncos shot better than 40 percent from deep since hitting 41.2 percent (7-for-17) Jan. 5, at Utah State.
