In the conference tournament at home in Boise, the fifth-seeded Broncos defeated Montana State by eighteen points in a quarterfinal, and top-seeded Weber State by twelve in a semifinal. In the final against second-seeded Idaho State, BSU won by four points.
For a second consecutive year, the Broncos received the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament without winning the regular season title; no other Big Sky members were invited to the tournament or the NIT. Boise State was seeded fourteenth in the West regional and lost by nine points to Louisville in the first round in Sacramento. It was the twelfth consecutive year that the Big Sky representative lost in the first round, a streak that ended the following year.
This was Boise State's fourth NCAA Tournament appearance in Division I, the third under Dye, and their last as a member of the Big Sky Conference.
