What is a little college basketball without a good upset? On paper, the two teams are neck-in-neck. It could easily be anyone’s game on any given day, but the home court advantage has proven to be quite an advantage for the Vandals in recent weeks and this week will be no different. Idaho will pull the upset and move to 4-0 in February.
Chris Deremer, Idaho- 67, Montana- 65
This is a huge game for the Vandals in the fight for a Big Sky championship, and I think they can pull off the upset.
Brandon Hill, Idaho- 68, Montana- 66
This could be the most consequential game for the Vandals this season, but in front of a home crowd, I like Idaho’s chances.
Colton Clark, Montana- 68, Idaho- 65
The battle between potential bracket-busters could be a wild one. As of Thursday morning, Montana is riding a 13-game winning streak behind defense comparable to Idaho’s and an immensely efficient offense. It’ll likely be one of the most electrifying NW matchups of the year.
Jonah Baker, Montana- 65, Idaho- 60
The Grizzlies survived an overtime scare against Sacramento State, but there is just no stopping them right now. Expect a low-scoring affair between the conference’s two best defenses.
Joe Sandoval, Idaho- 66, Montana- 64
Idaho pulls off the upset, with the defense carrying the vandals to victory.
Clay McKinley, Idaho- 77, Montana- 76
There’s a lot that can be proven in this huge matchup, I’ll take the Vandals in an upset.
Hanna Aáliyah Goertz, Idaho- 74, Montana- 70
The Vandals have been up on top and I’m predicting they stay there with a win that will help them towards the championship.
