    LAS VEGAS -- Stephen Madison scored 25 points to help No. 5 seed Idaho knock off top-seeded Utah Valley State 74-69 Friday night and advance to the Western Athletic Conference Championship.

    The Vandals (16-17) will play No. 2 seed New Mexico State (25-9) in the WAC finals Saturday. Mike Scott had 14 points and Connor Hill added 12.

    Utah Valley (20-11) was led by Mitch Bruneel with 18 points. Holton Hunsaker had 14 of his 15 points in the first half.

    Idaho used an 8-0 run in the second half to push their lead to 10, but the Wolverines climbed back within one with 4:04 remaining. The Vandals responded as Madison hit a jumper, Hill drained a 3-pointer and Sekou Wiggs added a layup to make it 70-64.

    Keawe Enos hit a 3-pointer and Hunsaker followed with a steal, but Bruneel couldn't connect on a 3-pointer with 10 seconds left. Madison hit two free throws to ice it.
