The Boise State men's basketball team is going to the NCAA Tournament for the sixth time in school history - and for the first time as an at-large selection.
The Broncos, (21-10) and La Salle (21-9), a pair of 13 seeds, will meet in a first-round game of the West Region, with the winner traveling to Kansas City to take on fourth-seeded Kansas State on Friday.
Wednesday's game starts at 7:10 MDT on truTV (channel 60 on Cable One, 246 on DirecTV and 204 on Dish).
La Salle is based in Philadelphia and plays in the Atlantic 10 Conference, which is sending five teams to the tournament. So is the Mountain West.
"It's a huge milestone for our program," Boise State coach Leon Rice said after his squad gathered in its team facility to watch the live TV announcement Sunday.
In its previous five trips to the NCAAs, all losses, Boise State earned a berth by winning its conference, but the Broncos' strong record in one of the nation's toughest leagues, plus tough road games in nonconference play, earned them one of 37 at-large berths in the field.
This is the Broncos' first trip to the NCAA tourney since 2008, and it's the first for the Explorers since 1992.
