WEBER STATE RUMORS & GOSSIP
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- The NAU women's basketball team (9-18, 6-12 Big Sky) led by as much as 13 with 5:02 left in the game, but Weber State spoiled Senior Day for the Lumberjacks stealing a 74-73 decision Saturday night. The Wildcats' Kalie Matthews hit a free throw with 0.2 seconds to send NAU to a loss in its home finale.
"When it comes down to the end, you never know...
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- The Northern Arizona women's basketball team hung around into the final minutes but ultimately came up short in a 72-65 loss to Idaho State on Thursday night in the Skydome in a pivotal Big Sky matchup for both teams.
The Lumberjacks fell to 9-17 overall and 6-11 in league play and will need to win out to keep their postseason hopes alive.
Great college basketball finishes are one of a kind because of how crazy and epic buzzer beaters are.
Trailing 75-72 with 7.8 seconds left in overtime, Weber State had the ball with a chance to tie the game. Weber State’s Davion Berry hit a game-tying three-pointer that should have sent the game into a second overtime.
Not so fast.
Sacramento State’s Dylan Garrity sank a three...
Damian Lillard is becoming somewhat of a human highlight reel and that should scare every team in the Western Conference. The 6’3” point guard out of Weber State was at it again on Saturday night, getting Terrence Ross to bite on a hesitation move and then finishing with the slam.
I’d say there’s definitely a justified reason for why the NBA has supposedly asked Lillard to...
OGDEN, Utah -- A season-best six players scored in double figures, led by 21 points each from senior Amanda Frost and freshman Brittani Lusain, as the Northern Arizona women's basketball team utilized a total team effort to defeat Weber State 96-87 on Thursday night.
The Lumberjacks' 96 points marked a new season high.
"I'm struggling with our defense still, but...

Weber State confirms that it is under investigation by the NCAA for ''potential academic issues'' involving its football players.
The school and the athletics department became aware of the matter this spring. After an initial investigation, the Wildcats self-reported the issue to the NCAA.
''The NCAA requires complete confidentiality from university staff...
Weber State has a cooking show, it seems, and has taken the under on production value, recipe complexity, and hosting. I don’t know who the genius is that put this together but it plays like a “Tim and Eric” sketch.
Was this intentionally sad? Did he really intend to share this with 4-6 people? Or maybe he just went home to his cat and ate it in front of a 13″ black and white...
Dalton Turay's three second-quarter touchdowns is all UC Davis needed to gain momentum in a 37-13 victory Saturday over Weber State.
Turay's eight carries for 32 yards wasn't spectacular but the Aggies defense was, holding Weber State to 6 of 15 third-down conversions while forcing three interceptions, two of which came from Byron Gruendl, and two fumbles.
It was the...
