SERIES HISTORY: Colorado State leads 7-4. Boise State is 0-6 on the road in the all-time series. The teams have split both season series since the Broncos joined the Mountain West prior to the 2011-12 season. CSU's 77-57 victory last season in Fort Collins is Boise State's largest margin of defeat in a MW game.

MINIMAL MISTAKES: Boise State (9.9, 11th) and Colorado State (9.2, fifth) both rank in the top 15 in the NCAA in fewest turnovers commited per game. They are the only teams in the Mountain West averaging single-digit turnovers. The Broncos have had 10 turnovers  or fewer in six of the last eight games.

DOUBLE-DOUBLE: Ryan Watkins is one of 15 players in Division I averaging a double-double (11.0 points and 10.6 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 given the Broncos a spark off the bench for much of the season. Bropleh scored in double figures in three-straight games (Jan. 29-Feb. 5) for the first time in his career. He poured in 41 points in those three games, shooting 15-for-22 from the floor, including 7-of-12 from three-point range. After being shutout at Utah State (Feb. 8), he came back with 14 against New Mexico (Feb. 12).
