Brooke Pahukoa scored 23 points in her final regular-season game, and the Broncos routed Air Force 72-48 in Mountain West play Friday at Taco Bell Arena. Shalen Shaw added 14 points and nine rebounds for Boise State (22-7, 12-6), which will enter the Mountain West Tournament on a seven-game winning streak. The Broncos tied for third in the conference with UNLV and will be seeded fourth in next week’s event; they’ll open against New Mexico at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Boise State senior Brooke Pahukoa believes the family aspect of the Broncos is a big reason why her team is just one of 18 in the nation that is still undefeated.

In the Big Ten Tournament, Maryland’s Destiny Slocum (Mountain View High) set her school’s freshman record for assists (171).

Mountain View defeats Centennial 62-50 for the State 5A Girls Basketball Ball Championship Saturday Feb. 20, 2016 at the Ford Idaho Center in Nampa, Idaho.
