Boise State received some big news this week as guard Anthony Drmic has been granted a fifth year of eligibility by the NCAA. The school announced Drmic’s additional year on Twitter:



The 6-foot-6 senior played in the Broncos’ first seven games during the 2014-15 season before shutting it down with a left ankle injury that was nagging him from the previous season. Over the course of a year and a half, Drmic had a stress fracture in his right foot and also injured his back falling during a game in November.

Now that Drmic is returning, he becomes one of the most accomplished scorers to return to college baskeball next season. Already with 1,528 points in his career, Drmic will be counted on to lead a Boise State team that loses guard Derrick Marks from last season’s NCAA tournament team.
