KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Stephen Madison pumped in 26 points and Connor Hill added 24 more, including six 3-pointers, to propel Idaho to an 87-80 comeback win over Missouri-Kansas City on Saturday.

Trailing most of the second half, Idaho (14-17, 7-9 Western Athletic Conference) took control with a 17-0 run capped by a Sekou Wiggs layup that made it 80-67 with 2:03 to play.

Wiggs finished with 16 points for the Vandals, who shot 51 percent from the field, including 11 of 23 from long range, to avenge their Jan. 4 loss to UMKC (10-19, 7-9).

UMKC was led by Nelson Kirksey, who had 20 points on 8-for-10 shooting.
