    MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) -- Tanoris Shepard poured in a career-high 29 points, becoming the 12th Idaho player to surpass 1,000 career points, as the Vandals snapped a 10-game losing streak Monday night with a 72-61 victory over Fresno State.

    The victory came a week after the Vandals (4-16, 1-8 Western Athletic Conference) lost by 35 points at Fresno State (11-10, 4-6).

    Shepard finished the night 9-for-12 from the field, including a 6-for-8 clip from beyond the 3-point stripe.

    Idaho also got 13 points from Mike Kale, 11 from Keoni Watson and 10 from Brett Ledbetter.

    Fresno State was led by Ja'Vance Coleman, who finished with 23 points. Quinton Hosley and Dwight O'Neal contributed 13 and 10 points, respectively.

    Idaho opened the game with consecutive 3-pointers from Watson and Ledbetter, and the Vandals stretched their lead to 14-3 following back-to-back buckets from Desmond Nwoke and a baseline drive by Watson.

    Fresno State retaliated with a quick 10-0 spurt, and the Bulldogs eventually tied the score at 16 on a Coleman 3-pointer with 9:33 remaining in the half. Fresno State surged ahead 20-18 on a slashing drive by O'Neal, and within a few minutes, the Bulldogs' lead had ballooned to 28-21.

    Idaho responded with a 10-2 run and the teams ended the half tied at 34.

    The Vandals surged ahead following three straight Shepard 3-pointers early in the second half.
