BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Trouble controlling your March Madness? Think it may have gotten the better of you? If so, you're not alone.

Even Boise State men's basketball coach Leon Rice considers himself hooked on college hoops.

"College basketball is the greatest. It's so much fun. This is the best time of it.There's 100,000 games on TV, so I do, I watch it as a coach and pick up a lot of different things that teams are doing, and I'll also watch it as a fan. I mean, who wouldn't, right now? Oh, we're busy, but that's the beauty of it. I can sit on my couch and tell my wife I'm working," laughed Coach Rice.

Full discloser, that excuse has been used by every sports guy in the history of television. Coach Rice gets back to real work, Wednesday night when the Broncos open the Mountain West Tournament against San diego State. Tip time at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, NV is 10 pm (MTN).
