CALGARY, Alb. — Even without the services of Perrion Callandret, who has only played in a pair of games this season, the Idaho Vandals have quietly become one of the top contenders in the Big Sky Conference.
Following this past week’s performances, which saw them win a pair of games on their home floor, the Vandals are in fourth spot in the conference standings at 7-4, and sit 2.5 games behind the conference leading Weber State Wildcats.
The Vandals are arguably the hottest team in the conference right now, having won three straight games, and six of their last seven overall. Five of their six wins have been by double-figures, and Idaho is a perfect 4-0 on their home floor over those seven games.
A big reason for their hot play as of late? The play of Victor Sanders.
The junior out of Portland, OR has been one of the conference’s best players all season long, and he’s having himself quite the career at Idaho. On Saturday, Sanders eclipsed the 1,000-point mark for his career, and he sits at 1,016 points for his career.
After a big week that saw him record at least 31 points in two games this past week, Victor Sanders was selected by the fans as the College Court Report Fan-Voted Player of the Week for the week of January 30 – February 5, 2017!
