WAC Tournament Women's Game No. 2 - No. 4 Idaho vs. No. 5 Utah State

Coming at you live from Reno, the second day of the WAC Basketball tournament gets underway! 4th-seeded Idaho plays 5th-seeded Utah State in the first installment of four games this afternoon. 

(14:38) The Vandals and Aggies are currently locked up in a tight one, 7-7, after only five minutes of play.

The two teams split 1-1 in the regular season, including a double-overtime thriller in Logan that resulted in a 70-64 victory by USU.

Big Blue is in attendance for the Aggies, the bull-human hybrid is getting rowdy next to the Utah State. He is going with a select breakdancing move during the time out, poor execution -- "A" for effort though.

(10:02) With the game still tied up, Idaho continues to go back to junior forward Yinka Olorunnife. Olorunnife was the only player in the WAC to average a double-double this year. 

(7:25) T's for THREES! as Utah State's Chelsea Burns puts the Aggies up one (16-15) with a three-pointer from the wing. 

Side Note: the WAC Staff has yet to feel the effects of fatigue just two games into the WAC tournament, only 14 more games to go...

(3:31) Utah State currently killing it on the boards with a 20-7 advantage just before the half to fuel its 22-20 lead.

(Half) Idaho's Derisa Taleni hits an incredible half court buzzer beater to put her Vandals up 25-24. Taleni leads all scorers with 11 points.

Sorry for the delay, internet troubles over here at Lawlor Events Center. Hence the silence from the blog (insert cricket noise here.)

The went into overtime after both teams failed to convert on finals attempts to win in regulation. 

After a clutch mid-range jumpshot by Utah State's Ana Pares put the Aggies up 59-54 with 1:32 left in overtime, a lead that they would never relinquish.

Final Score: Utah State 59, Idaho 58
