Weber State closes out its 1990-91 regular season play, with two important Big Sky contests at home this week. The Wildcats need just one win, to assure themselves of a spot in next week's Big Sky Conference Tournament.
The Wildcats are currently 11-14 overall, and 6-8 in Big Sky Conference action. Montana State and Eastern Washington could still tie the Wildcats (if WSU wins one game), but Weber State swept both teams during the season, and would win the tie-breaker.The Broncos enter the final week of play with an overall record of 17-9 and a league mark of 9-6. BSU has not been swept by any teams in the Big Sky this season, and looking to avoid that very thing this week.
In the first game this year between the two teams, Weber State came out on top 76-65. The Wildcats may well have played their finest game of the season, with the 11-point victory over the Broncos in Boise. The two teams each shot lights out in the first half. The Wildcats were 13-21 (.619) and BSU 13-25 (.520) and the Wildcats led by one (35-34). In the second half, clutch free throw shooting by the Wildcats won the game, hitting 17-20. Aaron Bell (9-9) and Al Hamilton (6-6) put the game away. Those two combined for 14-22 from the field and 15-15 from the line, accounting for 43 points and 13 rebounds between them. Hamilton had a WSU career high 22 points and nine board, while Bell had 21 points and four rebounds.
