ABOUT FRESNO STATE: The Bulldogs (17-11, 9-7 MW) are coming off a bye and looking to sew up a first-round bye at the Mountain West Championship. Fresno State beat the Broncos Jan. 14, in Fresno.
All-Time Series: Boise State leads 21-18. The Broncos have won the last 12 meetings in Boise.
WHAT IT WOULD MEAN: Boise State can clinch a top-three seed at next week's Mountain West Championship with a win Tuesday. It would mark the third straight year with a top-three seed. The Broncos have had one such streak in program history (1987-89; Big Sky).
11 MW WINS: Boise State is the only Mountain West school to win 11 conference games each of the last three seasons. It is the fifth time in MW history a program has won at least 11 league games three consecutive years (BYU, 2006-11; New Mexico 2008-10; San Diego State 2009-11 and 2014-16).
FAREWELL: Nick Duncan will play his final regular-season home game Tuesday, his 126th game as a Bronco. Duncan is averaging 31 minutes per game this season. If he maintains that clip, he will be the third Bronco in the past 30 years to average 31 minutes three different seasons (Anthony Drmic and Coby Karl).
ALL HE DOES IS WIN: Everywhere Nick Duncan has gone, he has won. At Boise State, Duncan has racked up 84 wins in his career, second most in school history. Duncan led his native Australia to the silver medal at the U17 World Championship. On the national level, Duncan's New South Wales Metro team won three consecutive national championships in 2010, 2011 and 2012.
NIGHT IN AND NIGHT OUT: Nick Duncan has made a three-pointer in 96 of his 125 career games, including 77 of his last 90. Only Anthony Drmic and Coby Karl have made a three-pointer in 100 games as a Bronco. Through 27 games this season Duncan is averaging 2.1 made triples per game.
LAST CHANCE: James Reid is making the most of his final collegiate season. In Mountain West games, leads the conference in free throw percentage (.887), ranks No. 4 in three-pointers made per game (2.4) and No. 7 in percentage (.402).
