All-Time Series: Nevada leads 41-27. The Wolf Pack won 76-57 in Boise earlier this year.

10 WINS AGAIN: Boise State has won 10 Mountain West games each of the last three seasons. It is the second time in school history the Broncos have won 10 league games three straight years (1987-89; Big Sky). It is the 13th time Boise State has recorded double-digit conference wins, the fourth under Leon Rice.

LOOKING AHEAD: The Mountain West’s top five seeds earn a bye at the conference tournament (March 8-11). Boise State enters the week two-and-a-half games clear of sixth place with four games to play.

DOING IT ALL: Chandler Hutchison leads the Broncos in points (449), rebounds (208) and steals (30). Hutchison also ranks second in assists (58). Only three times has one player led the Broncos in points, rebounds and steals for a season. It has never been done with points, rebounds and assists.

STEPPING UP: In Mountain West play Paris Austin is averaging 13.9 points per game, No. 16 in the conference. Austin has scored in double figures in 11 of Boise State’s 14 league games, including two 20-point outings.
