MOSCOW Memorial Gym was equipped with a new set of baskets since the last time Idaho played a game there.
Connor Hill approves of the upgrade.
The junior from Post Falls knocked down eight 3-pointers, one shy of a school record, as the Vandals topped Cal State Northridge 96-88 in nonconference play Tuesday night.
These new rims up here are not bad, Hill said. Theyre not bad at all. I like them.
The Vandals played arguably their most complete offensive game of the season and fended off a late surge from the Matadors (13-15) to improve to 11-16.
Idaho is 3-0 in Memorial Gym this year and will play its home finale in the facility as well.
That game is Saturday at 2 p.m. against Grand Canyon, and will be Senior Day for Stephen Madison, Joe Kammerer and Glen Dean.
