Mac Hopson scored 20 points Saturday night as Idaho edged Fresno State 59-56 in a Western Athletic Conference game.

Idaho trailed the entire game until Trevor Morris hit a
3-pointer with 2:12 left, giving the Vandals a 51-50 lead.

Fresno State's Nedeljko Golubovic hit a layup and free throw
with 25 seconds left, narrowing Idaho's lead to 55-54.

Morris took the inbounds pass and was immediately fouled. He hit
both shots, giving Idaho a 57-54 lead.

Brandon Sperling then hit an uncontested layup, but Hopson
sealed the game when he hit two free throws with 13.8 seconds left.

Sylvester Seay led the Bulldogs (12-20, 3-13 WAC) with 14 points
and Dwight O'Neil added 13.

The win makes the Vandals (16-14, 9-7) the third seed for the
WAC tournament in Reno next week.
