6-0, 205, Jr, Guard
Scored 20 for the Vandals, including going 5-5 from the free throw line.
• Idaho's 84 points against BSU was their highest output against an NCAA Division 1A team this year. On the other hand, the Broncos threatened to snap Idaho's 474-game string of not allowing an opponent to score 100 or more points in a game. Boise racked up its 80th point with 10:43 still remaining in the second half, but the Vandal defense clamped down and limited the Broncos to only 15 points the rest of the way. The 95 was the most allowed by an Idaho team since Long Beach State rang up 97 in 2000.
6-3, 195, Jr, Guard
Led Vandals with 22 points Saturday night.
• Problem solved...hopefully – Just before the winter break the Vandals were struggling at the free throw line averaging in the low 60% range including a low of 53.8% in a two-point loss to Idaho State. Pfeifer hinted he planned to emphasize free throw shooting during the break, and the Vandals came back to shoot 81.5% at Arizona State and 77.8% against New Mexico State. Against the Aggies both teams sank 25 field goals, but NMSU was 24-for-36 at the line compared to 14-for-18 for the Vandals in the 10-point loss. Saturday against the Broncos the Vandals shot 67.6% from the free throw line, including 69% in the first half. Junior Michael Hall went 5-of-5 while senior Michael Crowell went 3-of-4.
6-7, 210, Senior, Forward
Scored 16 in 28 minutes for the Vandals against BSU.
• Plenty of PT to go around – The Vandals continue to rotate a number of players into games. Against Boise eight players were on the floor for at least 10 minutes and nine saw double-digit minutes against New Mexico State.
• Cudos to the crowd – The announced attendance was 1,249 against BSU. Give the fans in attendance credit for staying power. After the Vandals posted their last lead of the game (58-56 1:35 into the second half) the Broncos exploded for a 17-2 scoring run and led by at least 10 points the rest of the way. Still, most of those in the stands hung to watch the conclusion.

Scored 13 points and blocked 3 shots in 33 minutes.
• Nice memory – In the middle of Saturday's game the main Cowan Spectrum scoreboards flickered off leaving only the shot clocks and game clocks over the east and west baskets running. The outage occurred during a time out and the scorer's table used a convenient air horn to signal the end of the time out. Kibbie Dome maintenance crews were on top of the problem and restored the north and south scoreboards a few moments. When the boards returned, they displayed the score "Vandals 17, Rams 13." That was the halftime score of the women's game against Colorado State December 18 when a broken cable left the main board dark for the half of the game.
