Big Sky Men's Basketball

Northern Colorado Bears (8-15, 5-6) 

at Idaho Vandals (14-10, 6-5)

Thursday, Feb. 11, 7 p.m. | Cowan Spectrum, Moscow

Watch: Online:

Outlook: The Vandals are still at least a week away from welcoming starting point guard Perrion Callandret back into the fold from his right foot sprain. Leading scorer Victor Sanders is further out from a return after breaking his right hand. Still, Idaho will need to take advantage of having five of the last seven conference games at home while sitting at 6-5 in Big Sky play and trailing North Dakota by a game for fourth place, which grants a bye in the Big Sky tournament in Reno, Nevada. Idaho swept Northern Colorado and North Dakota on the opening road trip of the season. - Sean Kramer
