Opinion: Shake it off December 10, 2017

Apparently the Vandals and Roadrunners should meet on the schedule every year. The Vandals’ 66-55 loss at CSU Bakersfield Saturday night imitated that of a long-running rivalry. The Roadrunners were able to force Idaho mistakes, leading to frustration and a chippy contest, in which the Vandals were unable to persevere. Perhaps the Bakersfield “smurf” court […]

Women’s Basketball : Identity Theft December 9, 2017
