Boise State men's basketball opens the 2023-24 season today against Vanguard at 7 p.m. at ExtraMile Arena. The Lions are in the first year of a three-year transition period from the NAIA to NCAA Division II. This season, they are competing in the NAIA, a division they won a national title in 2013-14 with a 32-6 record. Boise State is seeking its third-straight trip to the
NCAA Tournament, a feat never accomplished in program history.
One of the most explosive offensive players on the Boise State football team is leaving the program with three games left in the regular season. Sources say that sophomore wide receiver Eric McAlister made the decision to transfer late Sunday night. Head coach Andy Avalos then confirmed McAlister is no longer with the program yesterday morning.
Bogus Basin is preparing to open for the 81st season this Thanksgiving, and the mountain facilities have received several improvements over the year. This summer Bogus Basin installed SNOWsat technology, which uses satellite data to accurately measure snow depth and density, and new snowmaking towers. Both should help to keep the slopes in shape for the season. The rental shop at Bogus received a complete remodel, including more facilities, over 300 new snowboards and over 850 pairs of skis.
