The newly crowned 2008 Western Athletic Conference Champion Boise State men’s basketball team will find out who, when and where they will be playing in the first round of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championships when the brackets are announced on Sunday afternoon at 4:00 p.m.

To celebrate the Broncos first NCAA berth since 1994, the public is invited to share in the announcement at Taco Bell Arena. Doors will open at 3:00 p.m. for fans wishing to attend. Admission and parking are free of charge. Fans should park in the Taco Bell Arena or Bronco Stadium parking lot in the areas marked General Permit, and not in Residence Hall parking.

Boise State capped an incredible WAC Tournament run Saturday night with a triple overtime victory over New Mexico State on the Aggies home floor, 107-102. The victory established a school record 25 wins on the season, and marks the school’s fifth NCAA Tournament appearance. The Broncos also advanced to the NCAA’s in 1976, 1988, 1993 and 1994.

Bronco players and coaches will be in attendance at Sunday’s announcement, which will be shown live on Bronco Vision inside Taco Bell Arena. The 2008 WAC Championship trophy will also be on display as players will be available to meet fans and sign autographs following the tournament announcement.
