Idaho at Louisiana Tech
7 p.m. CST
No longer in the hunt for the regular season WAC championship, LA Tech (21-7, 8-5 WAC) may have to battle to stay in the top four. Reportedly Kyle Gibson suffered an ankle injury in the Bulldogs surprising loss to Boise State – let's hope it's not serious. Gibson's status as a Player-of-the-Year candidate have dimmed in recent weeks. Despite Idaho's (13-14, 4-9) big loss to New Mexico State on Wednesday, the Vandals still have a lot of weapons. I expect the Bulldogs to pull this one out as Idaho is on the second leg of the killer Las Cruces/Rustin road trip.
Boise State at New Mexico State
7 p.m. MST
ESPN360, AggieVision, KTVB-Boise
The Aggies (18-9, 10-3) played their best basketball of the season at Pacific and at home against Idaho. The Broncos (13-15, 3-10) went a long way towards punching their ticket to the WAC tournament by upsetting LA Tech Thursday in Rustin. Unless NMSU (18-9, 10-3) comes out flat on senior night, the Aggies' talent and depth will take care of a road weary Boise State team.
Fresno State at San Jose State
7 p.m. PST
This promises to be a hard-fought battle. Fresno State (14-15, 6-7) will try to ride the talent of Paul George (17.5 ppg, 7.2 rpg) and Sylvester Seay (14.9 ppg, 6.0 rgp) to victory, but San Jose's (13-14, 5-8) Adrian Oliver (23.3 ppg) is making a serious push to be WAC Player of the Year. This ESPNU game should be well worth watching.
Nevada at Hawai'i
7 p.m. Hawai'i time
Comcast Sportsnet California. KFVE, KAME-TV 21
Nevada (17-10, 9-4) seems to be able to pull out close wins in the final minutes – at least against WAC opponents. Hawai'i (9-18, 2-11) has had a host of problems this year and has the inside track at missing the WAC tournament. Nevada has it's eyes set on taking the No. 2 seed in the tournament. This one may be closer that anyone expects, but Nevada will most likely be ahead at the final buzzer.
