ABOUT ST. LOUIS: The Billikens are 6-1 this season and have just won the Cancun Challenge Riviera division. Gibson Jimmerson, St. Louis top scorer, was named tournament MVP. Jimmerson averages 16.4 points per game, one of four double-digit players for the Billikens.
SERIES HISTORY: Tuesday marks the first meeting between Boise State and St. Louis in men’s basketball. The Broncos and Billikens were both scheduled to appear at the Orlando Invitational 2020 before the tournament was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
AGAINST A-10: Tuesday will be Boise State’s eighth all-time meeting against a current member of the Atlantic 10, and second this year (St. Bonaventure). The Broncos are 3-4 in the first seven games. St. Louis is the fourth current A-10 member to play at Boise State and the first to do so as a conference member. Current members Davidson (1994), George Mason (1992) and VCU (1973) previously played at Boise State before joining the league.
CALLING CARD: Boise State Head Coach Leon Rice claimed ahead of the season that the 2021-22 Broncos had a chance to be the best defensive team in their 12 years as a head coach. Over the course of six games, they made that prediction come true. Boise State keeps their opponents at 56.5 points per game this season, dropping no more than 67 so far. This is the fifth time in program history Boise State has held opponents under 70 points in each of the first six games of a season and the first time since 2010-11, Rice’s first season.
UNDER-60: Boise State’s defensive effort picked up where it left off last season. The Broncos have allowed just 67 points this season and have held four opponents to less than 60 points. They held their opponents under 60 points 10 times last season, the second most in a single season under Leon Rice. The Broncos held 14 opponents under the age of 60 in 2014-15, en route to winning the Mountain West regular season title. Boise State is 77-11 under Rice when opponents are under 60 points, including 9-1 last season.
