Boise State Hoops on the cusp of Top 25 ranking by CBS Sports

Basketball season is upon us.

With the Boise State Basketball team already underway in their practices, there’s another sense of hype and expectations around this Bronco team, and for good reason.¬†Many of the national media agrees with the hype surrounding Leon Rice & Co.

CBS Sports ranked every college basketball team from 1-351. Among the top are North Carolina, Kentucky and Kansas. Scroll down a ways and you will see Boise State rated 31st.

Excerpt from

  • Boise State is ranked higher than San Diego State (36)

  • Broncos face two opponents ranked in the Top 25, Arizona (15), Oregon (23)

Drmic will probably become Boise State’s all-time leading scorer this year after stepping back into the Broncos’ lineup this year after missing the last one with an ankle injury. He’ll have a shot to win the Mountain West player of the year award. — SV
