COMING UP: Saturday vs. Seattle University, 7 p.m.
OUTLOOK: Coming into the season, Western Athletic Conference coaches picked Seattle University to finish second and Idaho to finish tied for fourth in the reshuffled conference. But almost halfway through conference play, both teams aren’t living up to expectations. The Vandals are in seventh place in the nine-team league, and the Redhawks are tied for last. Seattle has lost seven of eight games, and the last five games against Idaho. Saturday’s game will feature the conference’s top two scorers – Seattle’s Isiah Umipig at 18.7 points per game and Idaho’s Stephen Madison (17.5 ppg).
