ABOUT UC DAVIS: The Aggies won the 2014-15 Big West regular-season title and advanced to the NIT, their first postseason appearance since joining Division I. This year’s team is led by senior Josh Fox’s 12.6 points and 6.6 rebounds per game.

ON THE CALL: The Voice of the Broncos, Bob Behler, is back for his eighth season of calling Boise State men's basketball on the radio. Behler is joined by Bronco great Abe Jackson in his eighth year as the analyst. The game will be carried on the Bronco Radio Network, including flagship station 670 AM KBOI in Boise. A live audio stream is also available at

HOME WIN STREAK: The Broncos have won 14 straight at home and 36 of their last 37 home nonconference games. The home win streak is tied for fourth longest in program history and second best in Leon Rice’s tenure (15 games; Feb. 10, 2011 to Dec. 19, 2011).

LAST TIME: Boise State defeated Bradley 90-70, Dec. 20, in the Mountain West/Missouri Valley Challenge. James Webb III scored a career-high 31 points in the win.

MW POW: James Webb III was named Mountain West Player of the Week for the week ending Dec. 20, 2015. It is the first such honor of the season for Webb and the second of his career. Webb poured in a career-high 31 points Sunday, to lead Boise State past Bradley 90-70 in the Mountain West/Missouri Valley Challenge. He posted the first 30-point game of his career against the Braves behind career highs of 10 made field goals and 10 made free throws. He was 10-for-11 from the charity stripe, including converting a trio of three-point plays, matching his season total through the first 11 games. Webb also added eight rebounds and four steals.

CONGRATS IN ORDER: Anthony Drmic and Mikey Thompson were both part of Boise State’s graduating class Dec. 19, earning their degrees in communication. Now each member of Boise State’s starting backcourt holds a college degree as Lonnie Jackson graduated from Boston College last spring.

HOLDING COURT: Boise State is 68-15 at Taco Bell Arena under head coach Leon Rice, including a 39-2 mark in nonconference games. Boise State has won 47 of its last 53 overall at home.

JACKSON JUMPS IN: Lonnie Jackson made his first start as a Bronco against Loyola Marymount (Dec. 9). Jackson scored 11 points against the Lion, his third straight game in double figures. He is currently riding a streak of six games with multiple three-pointers, shooting 43.6 percent from deep in that stretch.
