Boise State Men’s Basketball went on a safari looking for their ninth win of the season against Sacramento State.

The Broncos have pulled off 4 straight wins and earned their first vote in the coaches top 25 polls for the first time since 2015 earlier this week.

This week was no different, Boise State had another strong performance with a rock solid offensive performance. Three players were in double digits, with Chandler Hutchison leading all scorers with 21 points.

All of us that's what makes this team so special," said Point Guard Marcus Dickinson.

"I always tell these guys there's someone in the crowd that hasn't seen us play and they're going to appreciate the way you play and the way we move the ball and

How hard we play that's our job to do that every single night," said Head Coach Leon Rice.
