    Idaho sends Portland to second straight loss

    Associated Press

    MOSCOW, Idaho -- Kashif Watson scored 15 points and Idaho handed Portland (No. 25 AP) its second straight loss since entering the national rankings for the first time in 50 years with a 68-48 victory Sunday night.

    Luke Sikma scored 11 points to lead Portland, which also lost 86-82 to Portland State on Wednesday. The Pilots hadn't been ranked since February 1959.

    It was Idaho's first win over a ranked team since it beat then-No. 16 Iowa in the first round of the 1982 NCAA tournament.

    The Vandals led the entire way, taking a 34-18 lead at the half. Idaho then went on a 14-2 run early in the second half to take control.

    A pair of free throws by Steffan Johnson with 1:12 left gave Idaho its largest lead of the game -- 67-42.

    Idaho shot 52 percent from the field and 43 percent from behind the 3-point line, hitting 6 of 14 attempts.

    Both teams turned the ball over 17 times but Idaho outscored Portland 23-8 on points off turnovers.
