WBB vs Idaho

Early conference test. Idaho was picked 2nd in the preseason polls by both Coaches and reporters. Going to need a strong defensive effort!

Idaho currently leads the league in defense at only 58.8 ppg allowed and also leads the league in number of defensive rebounds. Bobcats are second at 59.8 ppg allowed and 3rd in number of defensive rebounds. Bobcats will have a height advantage in the game but Idaho is fundamentally sound on the boards and on defense.

Bobcats lead the league in offense at 72.7 ppg and Idaho is 8th at 62 ppg.

Idaho is a young team this year with only 1 senior starter. They do have the Klinker sisters from Fairfield, Montana and the senior Klinker girl is one of the top 3 scorers on the team.

Gina Marxin (#23) is a 5’8” sophomore guard who has already shot 110 3-pt attempts in just 12 games. She has made 40 of them. She ranks 3rd in the league in scoring right now. So expect the ball to fly from anywhere inside the half court line when the ball is in her hands. Will be a key defensive matchup for Darian/Oli and getting off the screens so Marxin doesn’t have a clean look....if not able to defend the perimeter.....expect another long night of outside shooting.

Idaho record is 7-5 with key wins over Colorado State and Hawaii. Conference wins over Weber and Idaho State with a loss to Portland State. Common opponent was Seattle who they beat 90-84 in Seattle.
