STORYLINES

Byron Fulton Appears

In the game at North Dakota, little-used Weber senior forward Byron Fulton checked in late in the first half with some starters in foul trouble. He proceeded to shoot 4-of-5 from the field, including 2-of-3 from deep, and scored 10 points. Weber enjoyed a 12-point lead at halftime because of Fulton's hot hand, and the Wildcats rode that lead to the win.

With parity reigning, such a road win against the eventual two-seed North Dakota definitely played a large role in Weber's outright regular season championship.

Josh Schuler Injured

Senior guard Josh Schuler suffered a leg injury in North Dakota's first-round victory over Sacramento State after being tackled by Mikh McKinney in an effort to stop the clock.

In the contest in Grand Forks against Weber State, Schuler logged 23 minutes, scoring nine points and grabbing two steals.

Huff and Berry at the Line

A key to tonight's championship game may very well be if Davion Berry, Troy Huff, both, or neither spends a lot of time at the free-throw line tonight. Both have made a living throughout the season by knocking down freebies, and especially Huff has done so against Weber State.

In the two previous games this year, Huff shot 17-of-26 from the free-throw line, going a sub-standard 7-of-15 in the game at Weber. Berry was only 1-of-1 in the game in Grand Forks, but shot 12-of-13 from the charity stripe in Weber's home win.
