Boise State faces a must-win situation in order to keep its Mountain West title hopes alive. Nike Shox Clearance Sale .One of the pesky problems is that Air Force is the opponent.The No. 20 Broncos have experienced issues with the Falcons while losing each of the past two seasons. They badly need a victory this time around when they play on the Air Force Academy grounds on Friday (3:30 p.m. ET, CBS Sports Network).Boise State (10-1, 6-1) is tied for first place in the Mountain Division with Wyoming and that also rates as an issue. The Cowboys defeated the Broncos earlier this season and control their own destiny.Even if Boise State defeats the Falcons, Wyoming will claim the title if it upends New Mexico on Saturday.And if the Broncos dont reach the Mountain West title game, they are no longer in the running for a possible Cotton Bowl berth.This is a big game for us, theres no doubt about it, Boise State coach Bryan Harsin said during a press conference. Its the last game of the year and its against a team we havent beat the last two seasons.And make no bones about it ... we want to win this game.Air Force (8-3, 4-3) enters on a four-game winning streak and is brimming with confidence when it comes to facing the Broncos.Two seasons ago, the Falcons forced seven Boise State turnovers while producing a 28-14 victory. Standout strong safety Weston Steelhammer intercepted three passes to tie the school single-game record.Last season, Air Force rolled up 607 yards -- including a stunning 279 passing for the run-oriented team -- while posting a 37-30 victory in Boise.Who knows what will happen in this meeting but the Falcons are averaging 38 points during their four-game winning streak -- and had to overcome double-digit deficits in three of the games.Our strongest muscle is the one thats inside of our chest cavity, coach Troy Calhoun said, and thats what we rely upon is the heart and soul and character of our guys.Nobody personifies the Air Force mentality more than Steelhammer, who had two interceptions in Saturdays 41-38 victory over San Jose State.Steelhammer decided to attend Air Force when his only college scholarship offers were from McNeese State and Central Arkansas. He has gone on to stamp himself as one of the top defensive players in school history.Steelhammer has six interceptions this season and 17 in his career, the latter tying Tom Rotello (1983-86) for the school mark.Many of them have been pretty splendid grabs, too, Calhoun said. You look over the course of his career, I bet eight or nine of those have been where he really had to leave his feet to get. Thats hard to do.Steelhammer has a team-leading 71 tackles for a unit that ranks 19th in rushing defense at 121.1 yards per game.Boise State junior running back Jeremy McNichols will test the Falcons as he ranks third nationally with 1,575 yards while leading the country with 26 total touchdowns (22 rushing, four receiving).McNichols rushed for 206 yards and four touchdowns in last Fridays 42-25 win over UNLV and he ranks seventh in school history with 3,071 career rushing yards.He was passed over as a Doak Walker Award finalist on Monday, and that didnt sit well with Harsin.Hes one of the best backs in the country, Harsin said. Hes the most productive player. Hes put up touchdowns more than anybody else.I dont know what else from an offensive standpoint a guy can do to not have his name thrown in there with all those other backs.McNichols is carrying the Boise State offense as the attack has become more dependent on him and less on sophomore quarterback Brett Rypien.Rypien passed for just 109 yards against UNLV but has thrown for 3,025 yards and 22 touchdowns on the season.The Broncos defense will be down two starting linebackers. Senior strong-side linebacker Tanner Vallejo will undergo season-ending wrist surgery and junior middle linebacker Joe Martarano is surely done for the campaign after breaking his left fibula against UNLV.Senior middle linebacker Darren Lee will be counted on after stepping up with a career-best 11 tackles against UNLV. Lee has 56 tackles on the season -- including 6 1/2 for losses.Air Force averages 323.5 rushing yards per game with its triple-option offense and sophomore quarterback Arion Worthman will make his fourth consecutive start in place of injured senior Nate Romine (ankle).Worthman threw the winning 22-yard touchdown pass to senior receiver Jalen Robinette (team-leading 30 catches for 790 yards) with 32 seconds left against San Jose State and rushed for 215 yards and two scores.The rushing yardage was the fifth-best for a quarterback in Falcons history. Nike Shox Nz . -- Team after team passed on Andre Ellington in the draft. Nike Shox Sale . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. . -- Three close looks at the bucket, three misses. LAS VEGAS -- Denzel Valentine put a thrilling finish on the NBA Summer League.Valentine hit the tying 3-pointer with the final second of regulation, then made a jumper at the buzzer in overtime to give the Chicago Bulls an 84-82 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night.Valentine was scoreless on 0-for-6 shooting through three quarters, but he proved that fortunes change quickly in Las Vegas. His 3-pointer with 0.2 seconds forced the extra period after Tyus Jones had just given Minnesota a 77-74 lead on a 3 with 3.6 seconds to go.It was tied again on Xavier Silas 3 with 11.7 seconds remaining in OT, but Valentine, the college player of the year from Michigan State, worked the clock down before making his spinning jumper in the lane as the Bulls finished 7-0.That ended the NBA portion of summer basketball after leagues in Orlando, Salt Lake City and Las Vegas over the last two weeks. Rookies got their first looks, some veterans got their last shots, and it ended with a play that had Twitter buzzing like a game that took place in June instead of July.And just as the NBA stops, USA Basketball starts. Right on the same UNLV campus just hours before the summer league championship game, the U.S. Olympic team held its first training camp practice. The Olympics start on Aug. 5 in Rio de Janeiro and the Americans will hope to be playing for a third straight gold medal on Aug. 21.Then, finally, the offseason will finally start.A look back at the summer:MVP! MVP!OK, its actually Most Outstanding Player in the Final Four, so technically Tyus Jones would be MOP, MVP. The Minnesota Timberwolves point guard won Summer League MVP honors and finished with 27 points in nearly leading the 24th-seeded Wolves to the championship. He won the Final Four Most Outstanding Player award after leaving Duke past Wisconsin for the 2015 national championship.THIBODEAU BOWLThats what the Summer League championship game was dubbed, with coach Tom Thibodeaus new team (Minnesota) facing the Bulls team he coached for five seasons before he was fired. Thibodeau, an assistant on Mike Krzyzewskis U.S. Olympic team staff, took in the championship game from a baseline seat near Timberwolves players Karl-Anthony Towns and Zach LaVine.SIMMONS STOCKBen Simmons showed off the versatility that made him the No. 1 pick in the draft. The freshman from LSU playedd in four games for the Philadelphia 76ers in Las Vegas, averaging 12. Nike Shox Shoes Outlet. 3 points, 7.8 rebounds and 5.5 assists. If the 76ers do someday get the forward from Australia along with recent high picks Joel Embiid and Dario Saric on the court with second-year forward Jahlil Okafor, the future could be bright after a dismal recent past.ALL-SUMMER LEAGUE HONORSBesides Jones, the rest of the All-Summer League team, as voted by a panel of media members:First team: Jordan McRae (Cleveland), Bobby Portis (Chicago), Ben Simmons (Philadelphia) and Alan Williams (Phoenix).Second team: Jaylen Brown (Boston), Thon Maker (Milwaukee), Kelly Oubre Jr. (Washington), Normal Powell (Toronto) and Tyler Ulis (Phoenix).BULLS BACKCOURTChicago figures to have a starting backcourt of Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo after signing both players earlier this month, and theres some good young talent behind them. Valentine showed hes a clutch performer, while Jerian Grant, acquired from the Knicks in the trade for Derrick Rose, was MVP of the championship game with 24 points and 10 rebounds.PACKING THEM INThe summer league broke two attendance records in Las Vegas, including the overall attendance mark with 108,931.

The spotlight game that night featured the top two draft picks in last months draft, Simmons and the Lakers Brandon Ingram. The previous mark was 12,422, set last season, also on the day the top two draft picks met, with Towns and DAngelo Russell facing off.RISING SUNS?Phoenix got a look at a promising young core while going 4-2 in Las Vegas. All-Rookie selection Devin Booker averaged 26 points in his two games, top-10 picks Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss both showed potential and guard Tyler Ulis looked like a second-round keeper. Ulis averaged 14.5 points and had 10.0 points and 9.0 rebounds per game. Bender, the No. 4 pick from Croatia, shot just 27.5 percent from the field but managed 8.6 points and 5.6 rebounds in his five games.---Freelance writer Willie Ramirez contributed to this report.
