WHAT IS HAPPENING

  • Boise State is home after a month and a half on the road when the Broncos host the Eastern Washington Eagles (9-5) at 1:30 p.m. (MT) on Monday at the Boas Indoor Tennis Center on campus. 

  • The last time Boise State played at home was on Feb. 12 when they played three matches at The Eagle Tennis Club.


RECENTLY FOR THE BRONCOS

  • Boise State is fresh off a 4-3 road victory at UNLV last Tuesday. Jack Heslin’s three-set victory at No. 2 singles handed Boise State the win over the same Rebels’ lineup that defeated the Broncos in last year’s MW Championship match.

  • With the match tied 3-3 it came down to Heslin’s contest as the sophomore came through for the Broncos defeating the Rebels’ Alexandr Cozbinov 6-4, 3-6, 7-5 to lift the blue and orange to the victory.


NEXT UP ON SCHEDULE

  • The Broncos continue a six match homestand later this week when they host UC Santa Barbara on Thursday and Pepperdine on Saturday.


BRONCO LEADERS

  • Jack Heslin leads Boise State in singles on the year with a 15-10 overall mark and a 8-7 record during spring duals. Brian Tran follows at 11-9 overall, while Kyle Buttes is 10-12 on the year.

  • The doubles team of Kyle Butters and Jack Heslin lead the Broncos at 11-8 overall on the year and 4-5 at No. 1 doubles this spring. 


COACH PATTON

  • Greg Patton enters his 21st season at Boise State where he has posted a 446-190 record while winning 14 conference championships in three different conferences.

  • This is the General’s 37th season as a collegiate head coach ... Patton has put together an impressive 797-383 record, which currently ranks him first nationally for most wins by an active NCAA Division I men’s tennis coach and fourth all-time.

  • Since returning to Boise State in 2003, Patton guided the team to four-consecutive Mountain West Tournament Championships (2012-15) during its first four seasons in the conference. He also earned Western Athletic Conference titles in four of nine seasons (2003, 2005-07), as well as a WAC regular-season championship in 2009.


MOUNTAIN WEST CHAMPIONSHIP COMES TO BOISE

  • The 2017 Mountain West Conference Men’s Tennis Championship Tournament will be held April 28-30 at Boise State’s Appleton Tennis Center.

  • This is the first time that the league’s championship event has been in Boise.
