No Post Season For Idaho Men’s Basketball
The Idaho men's basketball team has chosen not to pursue a post season tournament closing the season at 22-9.
“We’ve had great experiences competing in the CBI and the CIT the last two seasons, and those are great tournaments,” said head coach Don Verlin. “They’re especially great for young programs. After talking with our seniors, we decided to not pursue a postseason tournament this year.”
The Vandals enjoyed an incredible season, finishing with the seventh most wins in a single season in program history at 22. They earned the No. 2 seed in the Big Sky Tournament in Reno after finishing the conference season 14-4.
The squad lit it up from 3-point range, knocking down a new program-record 277 3-pointers on the year while shooting better than 41 percent from beyond the arc.
The senior class leaves as one of the most distinguished in program history. The group of six helped the Vandals win 62 games over the last three seasons, the fifth most wins over a three-year stretch in team history.
The Vandals now look ahead to the 2018-19 season. Idaho returns two rotation players, in Nate Sherwood and Trevon Allen, as well as a handful of guys that saw limited minutes throughout the season and three redshirts that continued to develop behind-the-scenes all year long. Idaho’s recruiting class is also sure to make an immediate impact, and is currently comprised of two junior college transfers and one talented freshman.
