THE VANDALS (6-4) HAVE FOUND A GROOVE, going 2-1 in their last three games with the only blemish a 2-point loss at home to Washington State at the buzzer. On Friday the Vandals rolled over Oregon State in Corvallis, and Sunday built a 21-point lead over Seattle University in Seattle before cruising to a 73-62 victory. Idaho gets six days off before hosting Cal State Bakersfield on December 17th.

HIGHLIGHTS:
- University of Idaho sophomore Stephen Madison has been on a hot streak and Sunday afternoon was no different. Madison finished with a team-high 17 points on 5-of-8 shooting, nabbed seven rebounds and added three assists and one steal in his final box score.

- Idaho has been bolstered by the addition of two freshmen to the lineup off the bench, with redshirt freshman Matt Borton and true freshman Connor Hill being efficient in their time on the court. Sunday afternoon at Seattle U Borton went a red hot 5-of-5, while Hill balanced him out with a 3-of-3 performance, with each sinking two 3-pointers and combining to account for 22 points for the Vandals.

- Senior forward Djim Bandoumel tied a season-high with 13 points on 6-of-11 shooting. Beyond the points, he added three rebounds and blocked two shots, while slamming home an alley-oop for the Vandals.
