Orange is the color of choice for Thursday night’s regular season home finale, as the Boise State men’s basketball team looks to capture the outright 2008 WAC regular season championship. Bronco fans are asked to wear as much orange as possible and welcome visiting Utah State to Taco Bell Arena with an “Orange Out”. Tip-off for the game is 7:00 p.m.
Boise State is 12-3 in WAC play (22-7 overall) and alone atop the league standings after a road sweep of San Jose State and Hawai’i last week, clinching at least a share of the WAC regular season title. A victory Thursday would be Boise State’s first outright men’s basketball conference championship since joining the WAC in 2001.
To help fuel the “Orange Out”, the Bronco Shop will have numerous locations set up inside Taco Bell Arena selling special $5 Game Day Orange T-shirts. Additionally, five thousand orange pom-poms will be distributed at the game, helping to create the Sea of Orange. Thursday’s game is also Senior Night. Bronco fans are encouraged to arrive at Taco Bell Arena early for a pre-game ceremony honoring senior starters Matt Bauscher, Reggie Larry, Matt Nelson and Tyler Tiedeman. Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for kids. All Balcony tickets for Thursday night’s game are just $6. Tickets can be purchased at any Select-A-Seat outlet, on-line at www.idahotickets.com or at the Taco Bell Arena Box Office the night of the game.
