The Boise State men's basketball team is looking at hosting its first game with 10,000 or more fans at Taco Bell Arena in nearly two years.
As of Friday at noon, the school had more than 9,000 tickets out for Sunday's game against San Diego State (4 p.m., CBS Sports Network). The last time the Broncos had a crowd of 10,000-plus was March 9, 2013, perhaps not coincidentally against the Aztecs, perennially one of the Mountain West's best. The largest crowd at Taco Bell Arena this season was 5,682 on Jan. 27 when the Broncos beat Colorado State.
Winners of six straight, Boise State (16-6, 6-3) is 1.5 games back of the Aztecs (18-5, 8-2) for first.
"This is a big game for us in terms of Mountain West standings and how we'll go for the rest of the year in the standings," sophomore forward Nick Duncan said.
Boise State is 1-7 against San Diego State as a Mountain West member, but seven of those eight games have been decided by six points or less.
"I'm very excited, it's going to be a good game, it's always a good game with San Diego," sophomore forward James Webb III said.
Tickets are $11-$20 for adults. Click here for more ticket information.
