Scouting Boise State:

Boise State is fresh off their biggest upset in school history. After nearly knocking off Michigan State on the road, the Broncos came through with a stunning defeat of 11th ranked Creighton. The victory is particular impressive considering Boise State was 1-11 on the road last year. The young Broncos took their lumps a year ago, but return 4 starters and their top 6 scorers. They are out rebounding their opponents by an average of 8 a game this year and they are shooting a blistering 51% from 3 in the last 2.

The One to Watch:

Derrick Marks- 6’3 206 SO G- 19.5 ppg 4 rbds 3.5 assts
Marks lit-up Creighton for 35 points including a whopping 18 straight. He also touched-up Michigan State for 24 points. In those two games he combined to go 19-22 from the free-throw line. He is only shooting 20% from downtown, but 88% from the free-throw line and 45% from the field at high volume. The sophomore averaged 9.5 points a game a year ago and has boosted his average by 10 this season.

Keys to the Game:

1- Slow down Marks- Seattle U needs to keep him from getting to the basket and off the free-throw line.

2- Make shots- SU is 2-0 when shooting over 40% and 0-2 when under 40%.

3- Rebound the ball- Boise State is +8.2 on the glass and SU is – 1.5.

By the numbers:

– 6 – Number of times Boise State has beaten a ranked team in their history

– 10- The games Seattle U has won in a row at home

– 1 – The number of threes Sterling Carter is away from becoming second on the all-time Seattle U list for made threes

– 6 – The number of times SU will play at home in the next 7 games

Seattle U will look to jolt a Boise State team fling sky high after their biggest win in school history.
