GAME NOTES:

Friday's game with Oregon State was the 173rd meeting between the schools. OSU owns a 120-53 advantage in the series, but Idaho has won their last two games with OSU, including knocking the Beavers off in a 2002 overtime thriller, 76-73.

Senior guard Deremy Geiger was unstoppable Friday at Gill Coliseum, scoring a career-high and game-high 27-points on the night, including an incredible 7-of-9 from three point range. His timely shots - often in response to OSU scores - helped Idaho maintain a sizable lead over the Beavers much of the night.

True freshman Connor Hill of Post Falls (Ida.) scored eight points for the Vandals off the bench Friday at OSU.

Sophomore guard Stephen Madison of Portland (Ore.) kept his hot streak alive with a career-high 12 rebounds, and came up just short of a double-double with nine points and tied his career high with five assists.

Senior guard Landon Tatum knocked down seven of his 10 free throw attempts and finished with 13 points, six assists and six rebounds.

In the post junior Kyle Barone and senior Djim Bandoumel combined for 14 points, 10 rebounds, three blocked shots and two assists on 7-of-11 shooting.
