OGDEN - Weber State had five players in double figures and knocked down 14 3-pointers to pick up a 91-66 win over Idaho Thursday night at the Dee Events Center. The win was the sixth-straight for the Wildcats who improve to 8-6 overall and 3-0 in Big Sky play.

Weber State shot 57 percent form the field, compared to 51 percent for the Vandals. The Wildcats were also 14-of-24 from 3-point range for 58 percent and added 17 assists.

Idaho held a one-point lead with 10:49 left in the first half when the ‘Cats got going offensively.

WSU led by 15 points at halftime and broke the game open with a 21-7 run to start the second half. WSU led by as many as 32 points.

“We got off to a slow start but really got things going and got into a good rhythm,” said WSU head coach Randy Rahe. “We hadn’t played a full game in 12 days and I wasn’t sure how we would respond but we got it going and it was a good win against a physical and tough team.”

Jeremy Senglin once again led the Wildcats, scoring 21 points and knocking down five 3-pointers. He was 8-of-14 from the field and 5-of-9 from 3-point land and added four assists with two rebounds and two steals. Senglin leads the nation in 3-pointers per game.
