Drmic leads Boise State men's basketball past Oakland

By Brian Murphy

Sophomore guard Anthony Drmic had 25 points, 10 rebounds and five assists as the Boise State men's basketball team defeated Oakland 88-80 on Tuesday night at Taco Bell Arena.

Boise State improved to 2-0 with the win.

Drmic was one point shy of his career high, set last year against Idaho. It was his second career double-double.

Derrick Marks added 18 points and four assists for the Broncos. Jeff Elorriaga had 17 points and Igor Hadziomerovic had 15 points and five assists.

Oakland, which has reached the NCAA Tournament in two of the last three seasons, got 17 points and 12 assists from center Corey Petros. Guard Duke Mondy had a team-high 21 points.

The Broncos used a 22-6 run early in the second half to break a 40-40 tie and gain control of the game.

Boise State plays Louisiana-Lafayette on Sunday at Taco Bell Arena. Tip off is at 1 p.m.

Great things to come

Drmic is a lights out shooter...when he's got the confident-mojo thing going. With a year of experience under their belt, this team is only going to get better and better. Look for a different name highlighting the team's success each game.

Go Broncos!

Great things to come?

from Drmic? How about a vowel...

How about a stupid comment.


yes, thank you for the quota of stupid


He means that

your initial comment was stupid. Can't you comprehend?

Why do you even care?


Why do YOU even care?

no, why do YOU even care?

(we can do this all day!)

I care about the team

because they represent this nice city. I just don't understand why you would make a stupid comment about a good player like Drmic in the first place.

Who says I dont care about the team?

Why did you get out of that that I dont think he is a good player? Why do you get any ill will at all out of it?
Again. Why does it matter that I made a comment about a vowel? Odd that you and your buddy jump to start a fight about something as trivial as noticing that there are 3 consonants before a vowel in his name. That is how his name is spelled.
This is why I think I will not miss these blogs. idiots like yourself who but in and freak out while people like AQ, FO Ugly and all those guys make stupider comments than I ever will.

The guy needs to buy a vowel.

It is a comment. It isn't supposed to be LOL funny. Heck, it isnt even supposed to be witty. But what I dont understadn is why it bothers you and why you read into it that I hate the team and this guy in particular?

You are a dufus.

Resort to name calling...

yeah, that will makes things better...NOT!

I guess that makes me about as mature as someone who

ends a sentence with not!

P2 - I don't care, why do you?

this is another one we could do all day, too - if we get bored with the first one.

Why do you care if I care?


Gosh, just end this blog already. Are there really people who would pay to read and type this drivel?

Attended All 3 Games

Coach Rice has this team looking good. The first five shots have been interesting, but then look out.

Yo Dex

Did you go last night? What are your thoughts on this team? Can we play in a post season tourney?


I didn't make it last night, I was coaching my little guys. My impressions are primarily based on what I saw last year. I think they can play with any team in the MWC when they are hot. One problem with last year's team, was those long scoring droughts that seemed to plague them in several games. If they can over come those and find some way to get some buckets when Drmic and Elorriaga are off will be key. I also hope Watkins and Buckner are able to finish better around the hoop this year, those guys missed a lot of "gimme's" last year. I am excited to watch Derrick Marks and see if he has improved, I think that kid could be the real deal. I hope to catch a live game soon, but I won't be able to make Sundays game.
