StatSmack! Boise State is better than La Salle
  • The Boise State basketball team finishes what they start, with a better graduation rate than La Salle (75 percent vs. 60 percent).
  • More property crime happens in Philadelphia so you better protect your valuables if you visit (when compared to Boise -- according to the FBI).
  • The Mountain West has a conference RPI that is better than the A-10 (No. 1 vs. No. 7).
  • The Mountain West had fewer blowout games in conference (meaning there is greater parity within the conference) than in the A-10.
