Idaho State's 71-69 OT defeat of Idaho was a thrilling game to watch. Both teams battled to the end, and the Vandals overcame a dismal first half to bring themselves back into the game.
Below is my game story, which is a few more sentences complete than the one that appears in the newspaper. This is because an 8 p.m. tip-off (30 minutes later than scheduled), an overtime-induced 10:20 p.m. ending and my 10:30 p.m. deadline makes for a shorter article. I also included some game notes.
