Who’s Playing

Northern Colorado @ Idaho

Current Records: Northern Colorado 8-8; Idaho 3-13

What to Know

The Idaho Vandals will be returning home after a four-game road trip. Idaho and the Northern Colorado Bears will face off in a Big Sky battle at 9 p.m. ET on Thursday at ICCU Arena. The Vandals have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with Northern Colorado and are hoping to record their first victory since Feb. 9 of 2017.

Idaho was close but no cigar on Monday as they fell 74-72 to the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks.

Meanwhile, Northern Colorado entered their contest against the Sacramento State Hornets two weeks ago without any home losses — but there’s a first time for everything. Northern Colorado lost to Sacramento State at home by a decisive 85-71 margin. What made the loss an especially bitter pill for the Bears to swallow was that they had been favored by 11.5 points coming into the matchup.

The losses put the Vandals at 3-13 and Northern Colorado at 8-8. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: Idaho is 20th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 10.8 on average. Northern Colorados have had an even harder time: they are stumbling into the game with the seventh fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.3 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
