BOISE, Idaho - Boise State is on its second day in Louisville ahead of Friday's first-round NCAA Tournament contest against the host Cardinals.

Upon arrival late Wednesday afternoon, the Broncos checked into their downtown hotel and headed to Bellarmine University for a 90-minute practice. There, the strong, spirited workout continued Boise State's preparation for one of the top teams in the nation, as No. 1 seed Louisville is ranked third in both the Associated Press and the USA TODAY Coaches Poll headed into Friday's contest.

The Broncos wrapped up a hectic travel day with dinner on Fourth Street Live! downtown before calling it an early night.


Day Two in Louisville began in the early afternoon, as the Broncos had their 30-minute media session from 12:30-1 p.m. Head coach Gordy Presnell was joined on the dais by senior forward Shalen Shaw and sophomore guards Braydey Hodgins and Riley Lupfer, answering questions about the upcoming game against the Cardinals, Boise State's road to the tournament, and the team's 10-game winning streak.

Following the end of the media session, the team headed out to the KFC Yum! Center court for a 90-minute practice session. Following the workout, Presnell and Lupfer joined Friday's game commentators, Beth Mowins (play-by-play) and Nell Fortner (analyst), to talk about the Bronco season and the upcoming contest.

The team continued its day with a trip to the Muhammed Ali Center, touring the museum and learning about the life and legacy of one of America's most iconic figures.
