RECORD: 7-6 overall, 0-0 WAC
COMING UP: Saturday vs. Boise St., 11 a.m. PST at Nampa, Idaho
OUTLOOK: The Vandals’ final nonconference game before WAC play starts next week comes against their fiercest rival, at a new venue for the long-running series. This is the second neutral-court game the Broncos and Vandals have played – the other came in Missoula as part of the Big Sky tournament – and this one will be 20 miles from the BSU campus at the Idaho Center. The Broncos (9-4) are unbeaten in Boise and haven’t won away from home. They played without leading scorer Anthony Drmic (14.0 ppg) in a loss at Iowa last week, but UI coach Don Verlin expects Drmic to be on the court Saturday. The 6-foot-6 freshman from Australia was out with a sprained ankle.
