The Broncos came up short against the UC Irvine Anteaters on Saturday, falling 58-50. One thing holding Boise State back was the mediocre play of forward Abu Kigab, who did not have his best game: he played for 28 minutes but put up just nine points on 4-for-12 shooting.
Meanwhile, St. Bonaventure was able to grind out a solid win over the Canisius Golden Griffins on Sunday, winning 69-60. The top scorers for St. Bonaventure were guard Kyle Lofton (17 points), guard Jaren Holmes (17 points), and Jalen Adaway (16 points).
