Senior Ganeaya Rogers averages 9.4 points per game and is coming off a career-best six assists against Colorado.
The Vandals have one of the best defenses in the Western Athletic Conference, as they rank first in opponent field goal percentage at 37.4 and opponent 3-point field goal percentage at 24.4, and third in scoring defense, allowing 68.6 points per game. Idaho has allowed less than 70 points in its last five games, giving up an average of 60.0 points per game in that stretch.
