Vandal Women Going To NCAA Dance

They sang and danced their way into history and out of town, snagging the championship and taking pieces of the net as souvenirs. Idaho coach Jon Newlee hung the remaining nylon from his neck for all to see, stood atop a ladder and waved a pair of scissors toward the Vandals’ pep band, toward his smiling players. He high-fived anyone he could find. Newlee and his surprising Vandals, the picture of joy as they celebrated on the Orleans Arena floor, pulled off another upset here on Saturday afternoon, defeating regular-season champion Seattle University 67-64 in the WAC tournament title game to earn the school’s first NCAA tournament bid since 1985/Christian Caple, SR.
