Big Sky Tournament: Wildcats Finish Off Vikings; Weber State To Get Shot At Griz For Title

Both contests in the semifinal round of the Big Sky Conference men's basketball tournament took place at Missoula, Montana on Tuesday.

In the opener, Damian Lillard scored 22 points as the Weber State Wildcats (24-5) went on an 11-1 run in the final 4:59 minutes in coming from behind to upend the Portland State Vikings (17-14) 69-63.

In the nightcap, with Mathias Ward and Kareem Jamar each scoring 18 points (and the latter grabbing 13 rebounds), the top-seeded Montana Grizzlies (24-6) downed the fourth-seeded Eastern Washington Eagles (15-17) 74-66.

Montana will take on Weber State for the title and the Big Sky's automatic NCAA Tournament invitation on Wednesday night in Missoula.
