Broncos Host Aztecs For Senior Night
Feb. 26, 2018
Boise State (18-9, 12-4 MW) vs. San Diego State (11-16, 5-11 MW)
BOISE, Idaho - Boise State (18-9, 12-4 MW) hosts Senior Night Tuesday, taking on visiting San Diego State (11-16, 5-11 MW) in the regular-season home finale at Taco Bell Arena. The Broncos wrap up the regular-season Friday at Wyoming (6:30 p.m.), before beginning action at the Mountain West Tournament (March 5-9).
LAST TIME OUT
Sophomore guard Braydey Hodgins scored 14 points in the win, with seven coming in the fourth quarter. After hitting a 3-pointer to put the Broncos up seven with just over five minutes to go, Hodgins went 4-for-4 from the line over the final 1:32 to help seal the win.
The Bronco defense was again nails in the final frame, limiting Colorado State to just 5-for-19 shooting (26.3 percent) and 0-for-7 from 3-point range.
The Aztecs have lost seven of nine heading into Tuesday’s game, although they most recently halted a three-game slide Saturday with an 85-78 victory over San Jose State. San Diego State is led by the play of McKynzie Fort (16.1 ppg, 6.0 rpg) and Geena Gomez (11.0 ppg, 3.81 apg).
STILL IN THE CHASE
The Broncos still have an outside chance at the No. 1 seed, with a shot at the No. 2 seed also still alive. However, if Wyoming and UNLV each win Tuesday, that eliminates Boise State’s shot at the No. 1 seed.
The Broncos have never been seeded higher than third at the tournament. Boise State was the No. 3 seed in 2016, and has been the No. 4 seed thrice (2014-15, 2017)
GOING FOR A PROGRAM BEST 13TH MOUNTAIN WEST WIN
Boise State has finished 12-6 in Mountain West play thrice prior (2013-14, 2015-16, 2016-17).
BRINGING THE LATE PRESSURE
Over the fourth quarters of the last five games, Bronco opponents are shooting just 31.5 percent (23-for-73) from the field, and 19.0 percent (4-for-21) from 3-point range. In fact, Bronco opponents have missed their last 13 fourth-quarter 3-point attempts, dating back to Utah State missing their final try back on Feb. 10.
Shaw, who will play her 121st career game Tuesday, has spent this season steadily marching her way up many career Boise State records this season. Heading into the matchup with San Diego State, Shaw currently ranks 13th in scoring (1,136 points), 11th in field goals made (448), third in rebounds (846), tied for seventh in blocks (78), and 11th in assists (263).
This year, Shaw leads the Broncos in rebounding (6.9 rpg) and is third in scoring (9.0 ppg) while shooting 47.0 percent from the field.
Wheeler has played 44 games in her Bronco career after transferring to Boise State from Snow College ahead of the 2016-17 season. She has averaged 1.5 points and 1.6 rebounds, and shot 36.6 percent, in a reserve role at center. Wheeler, who suffered an ankle injury in practice on Jan. 12, has missed the last 11 games.
