Tough start for Boise State basketball: freshman G Malek Harwell tore his ACL earlier this week and will redshirt.

Harwell was a highly recruited player with offers from Colorado, Idaho State, Loyola Marymount, San Francisco, Toledo and Utah State, but ultimately stayed in-state to play for the Broncos.
I had projected Harwell to redshirt this season before guard Dezmyn Trent was dismissed by the team after his involvement in a drive by shooting back in August.
Harwell was expected to have a small role this season after the incident; his role now becomes huge in 2016-17 season after the departure of Anthony Drmic and Mikey Thompson.
Boise State’s season starts November 6th against NAIA school Northwest University in a exhibition game.
