Boise State women host Raiders in exhibition Monday

STATESMAN STAFFNovember 4, 2013 

The Boise State women’s basketball team will be breaking in a new offensive style Monday when the Broncos host Southern Oregon in an exhibition.

The lone two seniors on the Broncos’ roster, guard Diana Lee and forward Kinzi Poteet, are out for the season with injuries, with Poteet’s torn ACL further dwindling the depth at the post.

Stockpiled with young talent in the backcourt, the Broncos will move to a guard-based offense, differing from recent years when they had strong posts such as Poteet and recently-graduated Lauren Lenhardt.

“We’re down to one post. … We’re running dribble drive. It’s a single-post offense with a lot of penetration, but it is our most athletic team since I’ve been here,” ninth-year coach Gordy Presnell said.

Southern Oregon (2-0) has scored 200 points in its two games, defeating California Maritime 99-80 and Pacific Union 101-73.

Monday's exhibition will tip off at 7 p.m. at Taco Bell Arena and will be broadcast on KTIK 1350 AM. Tickets are available at the box office. The cost is $6 for adults and $4 for youths and senior citizens. Students are free with a student ID.

The Broncos open the season at 5:30 p.m. Friday at home against Southern Utah as part of a doubleheader with the men’s team. The men will take the court against UT Arlington at 8 p.m.
