Idaho State set to hire Montana assistant Evans

By Jeff Goodman

Idaho State is expected to hire Montana assistant Bill Evans, sources confirmed to CBSSports.com. 

Evans, who was the head coach at Southern Utah for 15 years, will replace Joe O'Brien -- who resigned after a 2-8 start this season. 

A news conference is scheduled for Thursday. 

Deane Martin had been the interim coach since O'Brien's resignation. 

Evans has been on the staff at Montana, which advanced to the NCAA tournament on Wednesday night after beating Weber State in the Big Sky tournament title game. He also received his master's from Idaho State.

Idaho State coach Joe O'Brien resigns

By Jeff Goodman

First it was Northern Arizona. Then UNC Greensboro. Now Idaho State has an opening. 

Joe O'Brien resigned on Monday after a career mark with the Bengals of 56-105. 

Idaho State was 2-8 this season and was coming off a loss to Utah. One of the team's victories came against a non-Division 1 opponent.  

“I appreciate all that Joe has done for Idaho State Athletics over his six years as head coach,” Idaho State Jeff Tingey said in a statement. “His team's played hard on the court and continually took part in various community activities here in the Pocatello community. I wish him the best of luck in his future.”

Assistant coach Deane Martin has been named the interim coach.

Foul shot nearly defies the laws of physics

Posted by Matt Norlander

Get a load of THIS.

Utah State's waxing Idaho State at home Tuesday night. The game is nearly getting to the point where Aggies fans will break into the winning-team-losing-team chant, which is one of the best traditions in college basketball. But before they get to that, some necessary garbage time and occasional foul shots as the game comes to a close. Then, with 4:11 remaining, the Bengals' (really? Idaho State ... Bengals?) Kamil Gawrzydek goes to the line to shoot two.

From there, things get spooky. You've probably never seen anything like this.

High bounce of the back part of the iron, one quick, stubborn bounce on the front part of the tin, and then the ball it gets all Zack Morris on us in a real-life freeze frame. I love how a Utah State player nearly goes up to knock the orange from its perch, then the ball responds, as if to say, "Gotcha." Thanks to Jay Drew with the assist on the linkage to the video.

And by the by, the shot of the man in the Superman costume, who unsuccessfully attempts to will the ball away from the net, is Aggies superfan Wild Bill. I'm glad to see he's in good spirits and healthy enough to be back at games.

Utah State won, 71-48, to improve to 9-2. ISU is now 3-7 and remains winless on the road.
