Mikayla Ferenz had 10 points for the Vandals (2-4), who shot 22 percent in the second half (6 of 27) and 31 percent for the game (18 of 58).
Wiese made all 11 of her free throws while Idaho was just 3 of 9.
The Vandals knocked down three of their 10 3-pointers and scored 10 straight early in the second quarter to open a 29-15 lead but the Beavers went on a 14-2 run, scoring the last eight points, to trail 31-29 at the half.
