Boise State Game Notes
THE GAME: Boise State (4-4) closes a busy and far-reaching three-week stretch with a Monday night matchup at Loyola Marymount (2-2). The Broncos are playing their fourth game in eight days and concluding a nationwide tour that will see them log more than 9,000 miles in three weeks by the time they return home.

ABOUT LOYOLA MARYMOUNT: The Lions are 2-2 on the year, and have not played a game for 10 days. LMU is holding opponents to 22.6 percent three-point shooting, the best mark in the WCC.
All-Time Series: Boise State leads 5-2. Mikey Thompson converted a three-point play with 12.7 seconds left last season, lifting the Broncos to a 67-66 win.
WEST COAST CONNECTIONS: Boise State's coaching staff is intimately familiar with the West Coast Conference. Head coach Leon Rice won 10 regular-season WCC titles on staff at Gonzaga. Mike Burns spent last season as the interim head coach at Pacific, after seven years as an assistant at San Diego. John Rillie played at Gonzaga from 1992-95, leading the Bulldogs to their first NCAA Tournament in 1995.
POLAR OPPOSITES: Boise State will play its fourth game in eight days Monday, while Loyola Marymount has not played since Nov. 25.
HUNGRY HUTCHISON: Chandler Hutchison has scored in double figures in seven of Boise State's eight games. Hutchison reached double digits nine times in his first two seasons combined.
DÉJÀ VU?: Boise State is off to a 4-4 start for the second consecutive year. Last season, the Broncos started 3-4 but evened its record with the first of what would be a school-record-tying 10-game win streak. Last season the Broncos went to 5-4 with a road win against a WCC school on Dec. 5, at Portland.
ROAD LESS TRAVELED: Beginning with its trip to the Charleston Classic and ending when it returns home from LMU, Boise State will log 9,138 miles over three weeks. The stretch includes eight games in all four time zones in the continental United States.
TIME TRAVEL: Boise State will play seven games from Nov. 20 to Dec. 10, without playing consecutive games in the same time zone.
