Broncos Grab Two Road Victories

On January 25th, the Bronco men’s team suffered its worst loss of the Leon Rice era. The Nevada Wolf pack stormed into Taco Bell arena and beat the Broncos by nineteen.

Heading on the road for two games, the Broncos looked to turn the tide blue again.

Wyoming Cowboys, 1/28

Laramie, Wyo.- The Broncos led for most of the game in Laramie. With 11:36 into the second half, the Broncos lead by as many as twenty points.

The game featured three Broncos in double figures: Hutchinson-14, Austin-15, and Reid led the way with 16 points. True Freshman, Justinian Jessup chipped in 9 points.

After the game, the Broncos stayed on the road. They would stay on the road from Saturday-Tuesday. Tuesday night would be a big game against the Colorado State Rams.




Colorado State Rams, 1/31

Fort Collins, Colo- Tuesday night would be a pivotal match up for the Broncos. Heading into Fort Collins, the Broncos were set to battle the Rams for 2nd place in the Mountain West.

Leading the way for the Broncos was super sophomore point guard, Paris Austin. Paris had a career and team high 25 points including going 10-10 at the charity stripe. James Reid also chipped in 18 points. Reid went 6-9 from three point range.

The Broncos led by as much as nineteen points. However the Rams cut the lead to just one with seconds to play. Thanks to Austin’s late game free throws, the Broncos had the last laugh in Fort Collins.

The Continuous Flame of Austin and Reid

In both away games, Austin and Reid performed at an exquisite level. Reid, a transfer senior, has emerged into a bona fide leader. Scoring thirty-four combined points and calling out defense plays, Reid has begun to shine for the Broncos.




Austin, in both consecutive away games, has come off the bench. In both games, his offensive production has come alive. Scoring a combined forty points, Austin seems to be more confident in both his shot and overall game.

The Growth of a Young Team

After two tough road victories, the Broncos may have turned the tide in their favor. The Broncos return home next Saturday eager to show Bronco Nation their adjustments, improvements, and growth as a team.

The Next Game

The Broncos head back to Taco Bell arena for a showdown with the Utah State Aggies.
