It's been a busy offseason for the Boise State Broncos men's basketball team with changes to the staff as well as adding Valparaiso graduate transfer Lexus Williams this Thursday.

The Broncos will also have the security of having their number one scorer back with Chandler Hutchison for this upcoming season.

The California native averaged 17 points and 8 rebounds last season and scored in double figures in all but three games.

Hutchison in the offseason participated in the NBA combine but decided to return to Boise State for his senior season.

Coach Rice is still confident having Hutchison in the mix and says that his return will only help the team.

"He might be one of our best offseason acquisitions there is.  It's really going to help him, in the long run, knowing what he knows now and the jump he made.  He makes everyone around him better he can go out and score 40 points and make everyone around him better. 

I think we are going to see something out of him next year where he takes it another level.  If he does that he might be the best player in the mountain west and one of the best on the west coast," said, Head Coach Leon Rice.
