The Boise State men’s basketball is set to play in their third straight NCAA Tournament for just the first time in program history. 

The Broncos were placed as the No. 10 seed in the NCAA Tournament and will face No. 10 seed University of Colorado in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

This will be the fifth time Boise State head coach Leon Rice has taken the Broncos to the NCAA Tournament, and just the ninth time in program history.

Though the Broncos have gone 0-9 in their NCAA Tournament appearances, the team is ready to break the streak. 

Boise State went 22-10 and 13-5 in Mountain West play during the season and earned a plethora of Quad 1 victories.

Despite the success in the regular season, the Broncos will play in the play-in match, First Four, against Colorado. 

The Broncos will open up March Madness play against University of Colorado on March 19 in Dayton, Ohio. 

Colorado ​​concluded their 2024 season 24-10 overall and finished third in the Pac-12 Conference with a 13-7 conference record. 

After a loss in the first round of the Mountain West Conference Tournament, the Broncos will come into the tournament with much needed rest and preparation unlike last year, when the team came off fresh of a Mountain West conference tournament and lost to Northwestern in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

If the Broncos win against Colorado, they will be slated to face University of Florida on March 22 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
