Isaac Jones finished with 18 points and nine rebounds for the Vandals (9-17, 3-10). Divant'e Moffitt had 14 points and six assists, while Yusef Salih scored eight.

Eastern Washington, boasting an overall shooting percentage of 54 through the first 14 games of its streak, managed just 39% (23 of 59) against Idaho.
