Utah Valley @ Idaho
Current Records: Utah Valley 4-1; Idaho 1-4
What to Know
This Monday, the Idaho Vandals are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 89.5 points per game. They will take on the Utah Valley Wolverines at 5:30 p.m. ET Monday at JSerra Pavilion. Utah Valley should still be riding high after a victory, while the Vandals will be looking to right the ship.
Idaho took a serious blow against the Washington State Cougars this past Thursday, falling 109-61. Guard Trevante Anderson had a rough night: he finished with only seven points on 3-for-10 shooting and turned the ball over four times in his 28 minutes on the court.
Meanwhile, Utah Valley didn’t have too much breathing room in their contest with the Long Beach State Beach last week, but they still walked away with an 84-78 win.
Idaho have to know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the 10.50 point spread they are up against. Those burned by picking them against the spread this past Thursday might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
Idaho is now 1-4 while the Wolverines sit at a mirror-image 4-1. Utah Valley is 2-0 after wins this season, and the Vandals are 1-1 after losses.
