Idaho dominated inside while Eastern Washington cleaned up in the backcourt in a game that fittingly came down to the final shot of overtime. Eastern guard Justin Crosgile had made eight of 16 3-pointers already, but hit the iron on his last attempt and the Vandals escaped with an 81-79 nonconference win in front of a crowd of 1,107.
