The Vandals were 19–2 overall and 7–0 in conference play.[2]

The PCC became an eight-team league this year with the addition of USC and Idaho; the Vandals won the season title,[3] and repeated the next year. They were led on the court by captain Rich Fox; "Bullet" became the head coach five years later.

At the six-team National Tournament in Indianapolis,[4] Idaho lost 31–38 in the quarterfinal to runner-up Kalamazoo.[5][6]

Idaho (16–1) was also the champion of the Northwest Conference, which was the five teams of next year's PCC Northern Division plus Whitman, Willamette, and Montana.[7] The only loss was at Montana, on a small floor.
