BITZ update

Yesterday’s games.

Utah State 84, Boise State 60

Louisiana Tech 74, Fresno State 66

Nevada 87, Idaho 71

New Mexico State 90, San Jose State 69

The WAC Semifinals

No. 4 Louisiana Tech (23-9, 9-7) vs No. 1 Utah State (26-6, 14-2)

7 p.m. MST

If Kyle Gibson was 100 percent I think the Bulldogs could pull of an upset and send fat boy back to Utah where he belongs. Unfortunately for the state of Nevada, Gibson is not close to healthy and it will cost them this game. Looks like Reno will have to put up with BS for another day. Then again, another monster game from Jamel Guyton could improve the scenery in Reno tremendously.

No. 3 New Mexico State (20-11, 11-5) vs Nevada (20-11, 11-5)

10 p.m. MST


These two teams have the exact same record. That means the Aggies are 20-9 against everybody else and Nevada is only 18-11 against everybody else. They say that beating a team three times is tough, but I have to hold my nose and go with Nevada in this game. Even so, I think this game comes down to who can make plays down the stretch. Stay up late for what should be a tremendous ESPN2 game and don’t forget to come back here for the BITZ live blogging from our man in Reno, Gabe Vasquez.

Hmmm … I wonder what he’s doing right now?

Don’t tell me we forgot to send a chaperone!
