|6.5 BSU (101) @ pinnacle|
There is a ton on the line for this game, and this backtoback series here. Boise needs to at least split here to feel good about a Tourney berth. I was very disappointed in how this team looked on the road in the Colorado St and Nevada series', especially getting swept at Nevada. But I also believe this team is in a better place now after getting back on track sweeping Utah State. On paper, these teams are extremely similar, and I fully expect a highly competitive game. I'll take 6.5 in a game I beleive will be a battle and that Boise could win. This team is super athletic, and lengthy. San Diego State had their tougher conference games in the beginning of conference play and have only the bottom half teams over the last month. It's the opposite for Boise, who began with a slew of cupcakes. So my hope is that SD St will have to adjust more to the step up in competition for this first game than Boise will.
