Hodgins Named Boise State Athlete of the Week

March 5, 2018

BOISE, Idaho – Sophomore guard Braydey Hodgins has been named Boise State Athlete of the Week after helping to lead the Broncos to the Mountain West regular-season title on Friday.

Hodgins scored a career-high 24 points on 9-of-18 shooting, including three fourth-quarter 3 pointers, and matched her personal best with seven rebounds to lead the Broncos to a 67-63 come-from-behind win at Wyoming. The sophomore from Pasco, Wash., scored 16 points in the second half of the contest, with nine coming in the fourth quarter to help the Broncos win and take the regular-season title.

Friday, with Boise State trailing Wyoming, 58-50 with 6:49 to play, Hodgins heated up, hitting a trio of treys and scoring nine of Boise State's 11 points over a span of just 2:29 to even it up at 61-61. Hodgins' flurry stunned the Laramie crowd, as well as the Cowgirls, who went just 2-for-11 from the field and scored only five points over the final 6:49.

Hodgins also scored 10 points with seven rebounds and four assists in Tuesday's 64-53 win over San Diego. For the week, Hodgins averaged 17.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.00 assists while going 5-for-13 from 3-point range and 13-for-27 overall from the field.

Hodgins and the Broncos now head to Las Vegas for the Mountain West Tournament, where they are the No. 1 seed. They will open action in Las Vegas Tuesday (March 6) at 1 p.m. MT (Noon PT) against the winner of Monday's first-round contest between No. 8 Air Force and No. 9 Utah State.
