On the road with the Boise State basketball team

When the Boise State men’s basketball team played at Wyoming on Jan. 28 and at Colorado State on Jan. 31, the Broncos opted to stay on the road rather than travel back to Boise in between games. It was the first time the program had opted to not go home between back-to-back conference road games since joining the Mountain West in 2011. The Idaho Statesman tagged along for the entirety of Boise State’s trip, from their departure from the Boise Airport, to their return home, and everything in between. From meals to downtime in players’ rooms to pregame warmups, the Statesman caught it all.

Five-day journey: Behind the scenes with Boise State basketball on the road

The Boise State men’s basketball team spent nearly five days on the road during a recent conference road swing at Wyoming and Colorado State, marking the first time the program had not gone home between a pair of conference away games since joining the Mountain West. While sleeping in hotels, watching film in banquet rooms and getting booed relentlessly, the Idaho Statesman documented the trip and learned why the Broncos don’t mind being away from home.
