The Boise State women's tennis team will host the mountain west tournament for the first time in program history starting tomorrow at the Appleton tennis center.  The Broncos enter in with the sixth seed, which is based on its rankings and will play Colorado State.

The winner advances to the quarterfinal round to face San Jose State on Friday.  Boise State is looking for their first win the tournament. They are 0-5 all-time but Coach Beck says the home court advantage plays in their favor.

"Being at home is amazing.  It definitely offers an advantage playing Colorado State.  First, they are a good team. We had our backs against the wall earlier in the season down in Fort Collins and we got down 2-0 and had to battle back and ended up getting the win 4-2.  We lost the doubles point against them last time and that's the only school in the conference that we lost the double points to so we are definitely eager to back out there and win," said Head Coach Beck Roghaar.

Boise State men's team travel to sunny California to San Diego for the Mountain West Championship as they square off against the Regular season Champs Utah State.  Boise State closed out the regular season with a tough 4-3 loss to Idaho this last week.

The Broncos struggled in the conference winning just one match.  Coach Patton doesn't rule out being the underdog even given me some magical wisdom along the way.

"It's like one of those movies at the end where John Travolta is dancing under the lights of Saturday night live.  The finals are going to be Saturday this week in San Diego and we want to be John Travolta dancing under the lights Saturday night live," said Head Coach Greg Patton.
