BOISE, Idaho- Boise State defeated Multnomah 121-64 in their season opener on Monday, breaking a school record for points scored in a single game.

The Broncos (1-0) raced out the gates, leading the Lions 23-8 midway through the first quarter. The team did not release the gas in the first half and went into the break with a 68-34 lead, with four players who had already reached double figures.

The team kept up the pace in the second half, outscoring Multnomah 53-30 in the final two periods, including a 3-pointer from Linsey Lovrovich with 48 seconds remaining to break the previous scoring record of 117.


“It was just a fun night. Last year we had trouble shooting from the perimeter and tonight we made 16 3-pointers. We made 46 baskets and got 26 assists. Everybody played and everybody scored, so we’re very happy.” – coach Gordy Presnell

“We came in wanting to run our offense effectively and be able to shoot from the perimeter. The rim shrunk a little bit on us last year. Mary Kay scored the first three and got us going. We came in ready to go.” – Presnell
