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.
