Stephen Madison scored 25 points to lead Idaho past North Texas 87-76 on Friday in the Coaches vs. Cancer Tournament at Portland.

Madison, who broke the 1,000-point mark for in his career in a Vandals loss on Thursday, hit 10 of 21 from the field and grabbed a team-high seven rebounds.

Idaho (3-2) broke the game open when Glen Dean dropped three consecutive 3-pointers in the first three minutes after halftime as the Vandals built a 24-point lead.

Dean finished 4 of 7, hitting all 3s, for a career-best 16 points. Connor Hill added 12.

The Mean Green (2-3) didn’t fold; T.J. Taylor, with 24 points for the game, and Alzee Williams, with 14, led a rally that cut the gap to six points.

Taylor, a junior, scored 13 straight North Texas points late in the Mean Green’s comeback effort.

Idaho closed the game making 9 of 10 free throws.

The Vandals had won all nine previous meetings between the two schools, dating to when the two were Big West Conference members from 1996-2000.

North Texas will close the tournament today against host Portland at 9 p.m. before the Mean Green returns to the court Tuesday in Denton to take on Incarnate Word.
