PORTLAND, Ore. – The Idaho men's basketball team fell to Portland State, 90-69, on Monday evening. The Vikings' (13-14, 7-8 BSC) full court pressure never let the Vandals (7-18, 3-11 BSC) get into an offensive rhythm, and PSU earned the conference victory.
There were three ties and five lead changes early on at the Viking Pavilion. With four minutes played, the Vandals led, 10-9, when Damen Thacker hit a jumper. However, PSU went on a 7-0 run to take the lead which would never be relinquished. The Vikings led by as many as 21 in the first period, and took a 45-26 lead into the break.
