Only the Montana State Bobcats stand in the way of Portland State's second consecutive trip to the NCAA tourney. The Big Sky Championship will get underway on Wednesday at roughly 7:30 PST. And, you can see it live on ESPN2.
The Vikings weathered through a horrible performance to edge Idaho State, 61-53.
Thankfully, Andre Murray picked up alot of the slack for PSU.... as the senior pumped in a game-high 21. PSU only made 5 field goals in the second half....and went nearly 9 minutes without scoring a single point.
Nonetheless, they are still alive. Looking ahead to the title game. The Viks and Bobcats split the season series with one win apiece. Montana State is 14 and 16 overall...while the Viks are 21 and 9 overall. You can bet... bracketolgists hope that it's Portland State. With wins over Gonzaga, CS-Fullerton, and only a one point loss to Washington....they could get as high as a 13-seed. Then again, we thought that last season when they ran the Big Sky table. First things first... they gotta take care of MSU! GO VIKS!
