Tonight in the Big Sky tournament final, regular season conference champ Weber State faces Montana for the right to play in the NCAA tournament.

Weber State lost four of their first five games, but came back in Big Sky play to win the conference. They lost their last regular season game against Portland State, but then got some revenge by beating them in the conference tournament. Montana finished third in the conference and upset second seeded Northern Colorado to set up tonight’s final.

Weber State will have home court advantage tonight, as the Big Sky tournament is being held at Dee Events Center, which is the Wildcats’ home court and where they have only lost one game all season.

In the semifinals of the Big Sky tournament yesterday Weber State beat Portland State 69-60 and Montana beat Northern Colorado 68-63.

These two teams split their season series, as each won on their home court.

This season Weber State was 15-9-1 ATS and Montana was 17-11 ATS.

Weber State has a decent offense averaging 77 ppg and they are also very well balanced with a guard, a guard/forward, and a center averaging in double figures led by G Damian Lillard (19.8 ppg).

Montana mainly wins with their defense, as they are not a high scoring team and they only have one player that is averaging in double figures in G Anthony Johnson (18.9 ppg).

Both teams can shoot the three well and that will be key in tonight’s game, especially for Montana, as they have less of an inside presence. In the Grizzlies loss at Weber State they were only 1/13 from deep, but in their win at home they were 6/12 from downtown.

Weber State has a better frontcourt than Montana so the Grizzlies really have to rebound well as a team and keep the Wildcats from dominating the boards. Much of that responsibility falls on C Brian Qvale (9.9 ppg 6.7 ppg).

Montana is 7-2 ATS in their last nine games and Weber State is 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against teams with a winning percentage above 60%.
