The Idaho women’s basketball team started the 1985-86 season with high hopes after returning four starters from their 1984-85 NCAA Tournament team. After cruising through the regular season with a 23-4 record the Women’s National Invitational Tournament came calling and the Vandals answered. After a first-round victory over Fresno State, the Vandal women matched up against #1 seed Notre Dame and knocked out the Irish in overtime, then took down Northwest Louisiana to claim the WNIT title. The team featured a pair of Kodak District VII First Team All-Americans in Mary Martin (Raese) and Mary Westerwelle. Martin and Westerwelle also both earned All-MWAC honors, as did Netra McGrew and Robin Behrens. The team’s blazing 53.8 shooting percentage on the season is a school record.
