Ken Owens

Although he spent just two years at Idaho after transferring from Treasure Valley Community College in 1980, Kenny Owens helped the Vandals reach new heights in basketball during his short time in Moscow. Owens led the Vandals to their first two NCAA Tournament appearances and vaulted Idaho into its first and only Sweet 16 appearance. Idaho won the Big Sky title both seasons with Owens at guard, and went 52-7 in his two years. He averaged 14.6 points a game and shot 50.6 percent in those two seasons, capping his career as the 1981-82 Big Sky Player of the Year.
