Boise State men's basketball routed 76-56 at Fresno State

February 26, 2014 

The Boise State men's basketball team made its first shot of the game Wednesday at Fresno State — then missed its next eight.

It was a sign of things to come as the Broncos fell 76-56 against the Bulldogs, essentially ending any shot at an at-large NCAA tournament berth in the process. It was the Broncos' largest margin of defeat this season.

The Broncos (18-10, 8-7) shot 38 percent in the game, making 19-of-50 field goals, including just 2-of-18 3-pointers. Only five players (Mikey Thompson, Thomas Bropleh, Ryan Watkins, Derrick Marks and Joey Nebeker) made a field goal. Thompson had a career-high 21 points. Junior Anthony Drmic, the team's leading scorer, left the game with an ankle injury midway through the second half. Fresno State shot 48.2 percent in the win, making 27-of-56 field goals, including 11-of-19 3-pointers.
