Boise State men’s basketball ranked No. 32 in AP, No. 36 in coaches poll

The Boise State men’s basketball team received some love for their upset win at No. 25 Wyoming on Monday.

The Broncos were tied at No. 32 in the Associated Press Top 25 with nine points and tied at No. 36 in the USA Today Coaches Poll with two points.

Their ranking in each poll marks a season-high. In Week 5, Boise State climbed to No. 34 in the AP poll and No. 42 in the coaches poll after knocking off an undefeated Creighton team.

The Broncos also have plenty of company from their Mountain West-foes in the AP poll. No. 15 San Diego State, No. 19 New Mexico, No. 30 UNLV and No. 39 Wyoming all received votes as well.

Boise State will host the Lobos at Taco Bell Arena this Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
