Idaho Hoops Open Conference Schedule Strong

Led by <b>Dwayne Williams'</b> game high 18 points Saturday night, the Idaho men went 1-1 on their 2 game road swing this week to open Big West Conference play, bringing their overall record to 5-6 on the season. Impressively, the women went 2-0 this week at the Cowan Spectrum in Moscow to improve to 4-8 on the season (its the first time in 7 years the Idaho Women's team has opened with a 2-0 conference mark).<br> <br> A hearty congratulations to both squads from all of us at!

This week Idaho split their first conference road swing, losing at Pacific in Stockton, CA on Thursday night (50-73), and bouncing back with a nice win at Cal State Northridge (Northridge, CA), 73-66 in overtime. Five Vandals scored in double figures on the night (Hayes had 10 points, Powell hit 10, Logan hit 14, and May hit 14). In addition, Jack May grabbed 11 rebounds (9 defensive).

Next up for the Vandals is a 2 game home stretch this week, starting with UC Santa Barbara (1-1 BSC, 4-8 Overall) on Thursday night, followed-up on Saturday with a matchup against Cal Poly (2-0 BWC, 6-5 overall). Both games tip-off at 7:05pm at the Cowan Spectrum. If you haven't had a chance to get to any games yet, this week would be a great time to make the trip to Moscow!

For much of this season, Idaho has fielded what must be one of the youngest teams in all of women's college basketball, and this week the team became alot more mature. Transfer Heather Thoelke was ineligible for much of the early part of this season, but her value to the team is showing impressively as she scored 22 in Idaho's Thursday win over Pacific (74-53), and 17 on Saturday as the Idaho women pounded Cal State Northridge 60-43. Right on Heather's heals is sophomore Keisha Moore, who sunk 21 points on Thursday, and 11 on Saturday.

The team is quickly coming together under new head coach Mike Divilbiss, who is building a team that is currently loaded with freshmen and sophomores. Next up for the Vandal women is a 2 game road trip this week at Cal Poly (1-1 BWC, 5-7) and at UC Santa Barbara (1-0 BWC, 7-2).
