The University of Idaho men’s squad went out in style at the Basketball Travelers Classic, going a perfect 3-0 at the tournament and having two players, Deremy Geiger and Luiz Toledo, named to the all-tournament team. Geiger also won the Outstanding Player of the Tournament award for leading the Vandals to their mark. Idaho is on a four-game winning streak and heads to Seattle University this weekend.

Photographer Kate Kucharzyk followed the Vandals on their road to perfection at the BTC, and is kind enough to share photos of days 2 and 3, where Idaho defeated Monmoth and Eastern Michigan.

The Vandals season ended with more or a glorified whimper than a roar, but an exciting OT victory over the 1-12 San Jose State Spartans certainly gave fans an exciting way to end the season. Photographer Kate Kucharzyk was there along the way and snapped some great shots. Enjoy, and congratulations to all 14 seniors who leave Idaho’s program!

We’ve got a big weekend ahead of us here in Moscow, Idaho, as Vandal football closes out their season and the men’s basketball squad hosts their first tournament in 21 years. Photographer Kate Kucharzyk caught up with the Vandals last night in their dominating win over North Dakota and snapped some highlight-reel quality plays from the young squad.

Don’t forget that Idaho has two more games, tonight at 8 p.m. against Monmouth and will close out the Basketball Travelers Classic on Sunday against Eastern Michigan.

Photo Gallery: Idaho men’s basketball versus Portland

21 Nov

The Vandal men’s basketball squad allowed a big second-half run by an opposing team for the second game in a row, and the outcome of a 66-53 loss to Portland was the result. The Vandals lost at home in the confines of the Memorial Gym for the first time since coach Don Verlin took control of the team. Under Verlin, the team was perfect in defending their home turf, going 9-0.

Photographer Kate Kucharzyk was at the game and snapped some shots of the action. Hats off to Kate, and we hope you enjoy.

Oh boy, was it a rough night for Vandal fans yesterday. We’ve been wracking our brain to spin some sort of positive on Idaho’s embarrassing blow-out loss to Nevada on home, but when you give up an astounding 844 yards of total offense…well, it’s slim pickings. At least quarterback Nathan Enderle didn’t throw any interceptions, and had a sweet 75-yard bomb to Justin Veltung for an Idaho touchdown, but beyond that it was all downhill.

Some more quick stats and facts:

  • Idaho returned the ball down the length of the field twice, compiling 155 yards, but each return was followed by a last-second fumble, which Nevada recovered nullifying Idaho’s drive.
  • The 844 offensive yards are a school record for Nevada. The sad part? It could have been worse, as Nevada chose to ease off the gas in the final quarter. No joke, from the sidelines, it could have easily been 100-17.
  • Nevada had three rushers with 100+ yards….and one of them wasn’t Kaepernick!
  • Speaking of the talented QB, Kaepernick went 20-30 with five touchdown passes. With 20 completions and five touchdown passes, our intricate knowledge of basic arithmetic tells us that every four passes Kaepernick threw a touchdown. W…O…W
  • Idaho’s running game averaged a laughable 3.6 yards per carry.
  • Idaho dropped to below .500, they are now 4-5, for the first time since 2008.

We’ll have a broader overview of Idaho’s loss Monday after we chat with Akey and the team has some time to review the film. For now, however, our resident photographer Kate Kucharzyk snapped some shots of the Vandals loss.

Fans hoping for a post-game bummer cure were sorely disappointed if they followed the men’s basketball team’s game against LCSC. The Vandals had trouble closing out the NANI school, missing shots and assignments all night and leaving the game in doubt until the final buzzer. Idaho won, but it wasn’t a pretty win by any standard. As much as it pains us to say it, should the Vandals, who shot 34 percent in the second half and finished the game with less than a 45 percent success rate from the floor against a team which it was expected to dominate, are looking at a long season if they continue this style of play heading into the season opener against Easter Oregon.

A sloppy game didn’t stop Kate from snapping some nice-looking shots of the men in action, which we share with you. Enjoy.
