    MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) -- Six-foot-11 sophomore Scott Morrison made 15 points, including a pair of free throws with 4.6 seconds remaining, to help Portland State hold off a late Idaho rally and defeat the Vandals 61-59 in a nonconference game Saturday night.

    Josh Neeley chipped in 12 points for the Vikings, who improved to 3-6. Idaho, which received a game-high 24 points from senior guard Tanoris Shepard, drops to 1-6.

    The game got off to a particularly slow start. Neither team scored until Portland State's Keith Sconiers converted a shot at the 16:40 mark. Idaho didn't get on the board for another 2:22, when a Brett Ledbetter 3-pointer made it 4-3.

    Portland State picked up the pace, outscoring Idaho 17-6 to go ahead 21-9 with 5:05 to play in the half. The Vandals had closed the deficit to 29-23 at halftime.

    The Vikings made it 48-36 after a three-point play by Anthony Washington with 7:50 to play. Idaho closed the gap to 52-51 on a short jumper by Keoni Watson with 1:53 remaining.

    After Juma Kamara scored for Portland State, Idaho stayed at least three points behind until the final seconds, when Shepard made a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 0.5 seconds left.
