The No. 11 Broncos learned their NCAA Regional fate on Monday afternoon upon watching the NCAA Selection Show and found out that they will be competing at the Lincoln Regional as the No. 2 seed on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The regional will take place on Saturday, April 1 at 3 p.m. (MT) at the Bob Devaney Sports Center.

The seeding marks a historic day for the program, as it is the first time in school history that the team has earned a No. 2 seed at an NCAA Regional. The top-two teams at the conclusion of each of the six regionals across the country will receive berths to the NCAA National Championships on Friday, April 14 at Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis, Mo.

The other five teams at the Lincoln Regional will include No. 1 seed LSU, No. 3 seed and host Nebraska, No. 4 seed Arizona, No. 5 seed Iowa State and No. 6 seed Minnesota. The national rankings of the top six teams can be found HERE.

Boise State enters the regional with an RQS of 196.910. The regional selection is the 10th in a row for co-head coaches Tina Bird and Neil Resnick, having qualified in all 10 years while at the helm. The highest the Broncos have ever placed at a regional meet was third, doing so during the 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2016 seasons. The 2011 season was their closest attempt at earning a top-two spot and advancing to the NCAA National meet, missing the second-place finish by only .025 of a point.

Last year the Broncos suffered another narrow miss on qualifying to nationals as they took third at the Tuscaloosa Regional with a score of 195.750, just short of California (195.925) for the No. 2 spot.

Other regional sites and the respective host schools include Fayetteville, Ark. (Arkansas), Gainesville, Fla. (Florida), Urbana-Champiagn, Ill. (Illinois), Seattle, Wash. (Washington) and Morgantown, W.V. (West Virginia).

The NCAA National Championships will start on Friday, April 14 and then will transition into the Super Six the following day on Saturday, April 15 where the top-three teams from each of the two sessions on the previous day will compete for the national title.
