San Jose St. 68, Idaho 65

Idaho had three turnovers in its final six possessions to seal its own fate, losing 68-65 to San Jose State in the championship game of the Best Western-Vandal Basketball Tournament in Moscow.

“It’s the same little things that continue to beat us,” said coach Julie Holt. “Game in and game out our composure still continues to hurt us. We didn’t do a good job mentally preparing. If we had we could’ve had a championship.”

Idaho had a chance to win but Mindy Rice’s 3-pointer at the buzzer fell short. San Jose State’s Natasha Johnson hit two foul shots with 13 seconds to provide the winning margin.

The Vandals were paced by Rice’s 24 points and 10 rebounds. Rice had just two points and six rebounds in the first half.

Ari Skorpik, who has scored in double figures in all of Idaho’s first four games, joined Rice on the alltournament team, finishing with 16 points and six assists. Junior college transfer Michelle Greenwood came off the bench to score 10 points in 20 minutes.

Tournament MVP Kylie Page led San Jose State (2-4) with a game-high 29 points. Kari Steele and Natasha Johnson each added 12.
