What to Know

The Northern Illinois Huskies are on the road again Friday and play against the Idaho Vandals at 9 p.m. ET Dec. 2 at ICCU Arena. The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close matchup.

Everything went NIU's way against the Eastern Illinois Panthers on Wednesday as they made off with a 90-70 win.

Meanwhile, things were close when Idaho and the Pacific Tigers clashed last week, but the Vandals ultimately edged out the opposition 84-81. It took four tries, but Idaho can finally say that they have a victory on the road.

Their wins bumped NIU to 3-5 and Idaho to 2-5. We'll see who can continue their climb to a .500 record.
