ABOUT NEW MEXICO: The Lobos have the No. 3 scoring offense in the conference, averaging 80.4 points per game. New Mexico scores the majority of its points from behind the arc, as they lead the conference and are No. 10 in the NCAA in average 3-pointers per game at 11.2.

Seven different Lobos average seven or more points, but senior swingman Sam Logwood leads the way at 13.4 point per game. Senior forward Joe Furstinger is the team’s top rebounder (6.3 rpg), but New Mexico is No. 11 in the MW with a -4.1 average rebounding margin.

LOOKING FOR REVENGE AGAINST LOBOS: The Broncos are just 3-10 in the all-time series against the Lobos and will be looking to snap a four-game losing streak to New Mexico when they take the court Wednesday night. Two of the three Boise State wins have come at Taco Bell Arena.

SECOND HALF BURST: Trailing 43-37 at the 18:09 mark in the second half last Saturday against UNLV, Boise State unleashed a 25-6 run in the next 7:58 to take the 62-49 lead with 10:07 remaining in the game. The run proved to be the difference in a game that saw 10 lead changes in the first half. The Broncos were 11-of-17 (64.7 %) from the field during their run.

2-0 START, TIED FOR FIRST: Although the conference season is only two games old, the Broncos are 2-0 and share first place with Nevada. The Broncos have started conference play 2-0 in three-straight seasons.

HUTCHISON GOES OFF: Chandler Hutchison recorded a season-high 32 points and grabbed 12 rebounds against UNLV (Dec. 30) to lead the Broncos in both categories. The senior now has three career 30-point games.

In addition, the performance gave him his 11th-career 20-point, 10-rebound game, putting him in sole possession of first place in the school record book. He has five 20/10 games and six double-doubles in the 2017-18 season.

Hutchison was named the Mountain West Player of the Week earlier Tuesday morning, as well. He finished last week with 56 points, 15 rebounds, three assists and three steals.

OWNING THE GLASS: Boise State was sensational on the boards against UNLV, outrebounding the Rebels 48-29 for a +19 margin. The Broncos average a +8.3 rebounding margin, putting them No. 2 in the Mountain West and No. 22 in the NCAA.

Haney was the second-leading rebounder for the Broncos against UNLV, pulling in a season-high 11 boards to go with 11 points for the first double-double of his career.

EFFICIENT FROM THE FIELD: Boise State shot 54.0 and 50.8 percent from the field against Colorado State and UNLV, respectively, bringing its average on the season to 46.5 percent. The Broncos are 54-2 under head coach Leon Rice when shooting at least 50 percent from the field.

JESSUP ADAPTING:  With opponents making a concerted effort to take away the three from Justinian Jessup, the sophomore has responded with 10 assists in his last two games against Colorado State (Dec. 27) and UNLV (Dec. 30), tying his career high (5) in both games, showing an ability to adapt and make an impact on each game through his passing.
