Weber St. 74, Portland St. 73
OGDEN, Utah (AP) _ Damien Baskerville scored 28 points, including a go-ahead a foul shot with two seconds to play, to lead Weber State to a 74-73 Big Sky Conference win over Portland State on Thursday in the Dee Events Center.
With 29 second left, Portland State (3-13 overall, 1-6 Big Sky) tied the game 73-73 on a break away layup by Mike Vanderhoff.
Weber (8-9, 4-4) worked the clock down to the final two seconds when Baskerville drove the lane and was fouled. After converting the first free throw, Baskerville intentionally missed the second attempt, which was rebounded by the Vikings’ Derek Nesland.
With no timeouts remaining for Portland State, Jamie Snook took Nesland’s pass at mid-court, but the buzzer sounded before he could get off a desperation 3-pointer that also missed the mark.
The Wildcats led at the half, 36-35, and the lead changed 10 times in the first seven minutes of the second half.
Ryan Jama and Ryan Cuff each had 10 points for Weber, with Cuff adding a team high 11 assists and 8 rebounds.
Jamaal Sanford led Portland State with 19 points and a game high 16 rebounds. Vanderhoff added 18 points with Brian Towne and Matt Ambrose each scoring 12 points for Vikings.
