Idaho’s Jon Newlee Gets Win No.200
Idaho women's basketball coach Jon Newlee became the Vandals winningest coach in program history in 2017. Since then he's continued to add victories and last night when his Vandals beat Eastern Washington 69-60, Newlee earned his 200th career victory.
Of course if you ask Coach Newlee he'll tell you the most important aspect of last nights win is the fact the Idaho ladies are now 4-1 in Big Sky play.
Despite trailing early, the Vandals would lead by as many as 14 points, led by Lizzy Klinker's double-double of 14 points and 11 rebounds.
Idaho finished with a season high 13 made three pointers. Idaho will host Montana Saturday in the Cowan-Spectrum 3pm MST.
