Coach Rice says the Bulldogs are better than you think
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - While the Boise State men's basketball team continues to dominate their home schedule, Saturday night's battle with the Bulldogs of Fresno State is on the road ... in California.

Mountain West Conference basketball fans will know those Bulldogs are also the cellar dwellers in the conference standings, but Boise State head coach Leon Rice says that doesn't make them a bad team. In fact, he went so far as to call Saturday's tip the toughest game of the season.

"I mean Fresno's just been terrific. People will look at that record and maybe not understand how good they've been. You know, they just won on the road in Nevada, they could of won in Wyoming ... it was down to the final, you know a win in overtime. You know, they beat UNLV at home, they're playing as good as anybody in the league," said Rice.

Coach knows what he's talking about, and probably knows Boise State has won just five of the 15 games played against the Bulldogs in Fresno. We'll find out if the Broncos can buck the trend Saturday night at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California.
