LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Playing before a big crowd wasn't the problem for a Boise State team that has won twice in large venues.
The Broncos' struggle Tuesday night was playing against No. 11 Kentucky's talented roster of long and tall players, whose size and athleticism was the difference in handing them their first defeat, 70-55 before 21,565 at Rupp Arena.
After an energetic start, Boise State (8-1) was eventually overwhelmed by Kentucky, especially in the second half. The Broncos shot just 8 of 35 from the field in the final 20 minutes and finished 22 of 69 overall (32 percent).
