Ali Forde and Alyssa Charlston sharing a laugh before taking on Seattle University for their last game in Memorial Gym this season. With the Western Athletic Conference regular season title on the line, a win for the Vandals would crown them the champs.
The Vandals trailed 31-27 going into halftime and were held to just 10 of 35 shooting in the first 20 minutes. but Stacy Barr would finish with a team-high 14 points, Ali Forde and Christina Salvatore would each finish with 13, and the Vandal women would do something they haven't done in 29 years they're crowned the Western Athletic Champions after taking down Seattle U 60-57.
The Vandal women finished 20-8 in the regular season and went 13-1 in conference play, and get their first 20-win season since the 2003-04 season. Idaho will be back in the Cowan spectrum for its final two games of the season, first hosting Chicago State on Thursday before taking on the University of Missouri-Kansas City on Saturday.
Big congrats to the Vandal women on such a huge accomplishment.
