Pfeifer earns first UI win


The University of Idaho got its first win under new coach George Pfeifer – but the Vandals had to go all the way to Brookings, S.D. to get it.

And it took 26 points from Keoni Watson and a second-half rally to get past South Dakota State.

There is more, as usual, on Jim Meehan’s Idaho blog.


Speaking of basketball, WSU takes a 3-0 record into tonight’s home game against Texas-San Antonio (8:30; KXLY 920-AM).

The Jackrabbits (1-1) are in the Inland Northwest for two games, and they will face Gonzaga (3-0) on Sunday (5 p.m.; KAYU, FSN TV; KGA 1510-AM).

The Zag women routed Sacramento State 84-43 Thursday night behind the 22 points from transfer Michelle Elliot. The Hornets face Washington State tonight prior to the men’s game. The GU women travel to Montana on Sunday.
