The Boise State men’s and women’s basketball teams took to Taco Bell Arena on Saturday afternoon for a doubleheader matchup.
The women lost a close one to the University of San Francisco, 76-70 in the opening game. Boise State led by as many as 12 points in the second half, but were unable to hold off a late charge from the Dons, as the Broncos fell to 4-5 on the season.
Sophomore forward Miquelle Askew led the Broncos with 13 points, while freshman guard Yaiza Rodriguez Ortego poured in 12 points of her own, along with a career-high of seven assists.
In the second matchup of the day, the men’s team fell to the Saint Mary’s Gaels, 82-74, as the Broncos dropped their second game this season.
It was also their second consecutive loss following a road loss at Kentucky earlier in the week.
The Broncos trailed by as much as 16 in the first half, before cutting the lead to 46-44 at the half.
Saint Mary’s proved to be too much for the Broncos however, as the Gaels went 12-of-23 from beyond the arc, while holding Boise State’s leading scorer, junior guard Anthony Drmic, to just six points.
