2018 NIT: How To Stream Boise State vs. Washington
Get yourself to ESPN3 for this game.
The Broncos go on the road for the NIT opener.
Boise State does not want its season to end in the first round of the NIT tournament, but if they are going to survive and advance they will need to beat Washington in its home arena.
The four-seeded Broncos are not able to host due to the NCAA Tournament taking over its home arena this weekend, but even though Boise State is a road team they are a one-point favorite in this matchup.
One thing Boise State will need to do to win this game is to protect the ball and take smart shots. Washington is one of the best teams in the country in forced turnovers, blocks and steals. If the Broncos are not able to play smart on offense that could lead to a lot of easy buckets for Washington.
However, the Broncos defense will be one of the toughest which the Huskies have played all year, and Washington is just 9-12 when playing teams which are better than themselves on defense. Boise State fits into that category, and that is why this game is basically a pick’em.
