The sports spotlight that was once myopically focused on Broncos football has spread, shining on other teams and sports—and deservedly so. For example, College of Idaho has a new football team and a top-ranked NAIA basketball team led by a lauded coach; and the Boise State men's basketball team is first in the Mountain West Conference with a 10-3 season. As a rule, basketball games are exciting sporting events, but this upcoming faceoff has particular promise as the Broncos take on their Mountain West rival, University of Las Vegas Nevada. If you can't be a part of the excitement at the Taco Bell Arena, the game will be televised on ESPNU.
9 p.m., $11-$20. Taco Bell Arena, 1910 University Dr., 208-426-4737, broncosports.com.
