Why Boise State Will Win

This won’t be a cake walk for the Broncos. With that being said, though, Boise State will typically have the best player on the court whenever Chandler Hutchison’s active, and maybe the top two or three players when UTEP’s Omega Harris is sitting. The Miners could have a difficult time defending BSU’s three-headed scoring attack of Chandler Hutchison, Alex Hobbs, and Justinian Jessup. Hobbs has been a breakout scorer thus far for the Broncos, and Jessup had a career-night last time out. If the trio can score 45-50 points combined, that will put a lot of pressure on a UTEP offense that was 264th in adjusted offensive efficiency last season, per KenPom.
