Boise State seeks 1st March Madness tournament win

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Max Rice remembers the excitement he saw watching Northwestern win its first NCAA Tournament game six years ago. Now, Rice wants to do the same for his Boise State team that is looking for its first tournament win when the 10th-seeded Broncos take on the seventh-seeded Wildcats. In a West Region filled with powerhouses like defending champion Kansas, UCLA, Connecticut and Gonzaga, the Wildcats and Broncos are clearly lacking. Northwestern has made it to this stage for just the second time, advancing  to the second round in 2017. Boise State is 0-8 all-time in the tournament.
