Northern Colorado Vs. Weber State Recap: Wildcats Steal The Victory, Bears Lose 81-93

The Weber St. Wildcats (18-4, 10-1) did not need their late game magic to beat the Northern Colorado Bears (7-15, 4-7) this time around. The Big Sky leader remained atop the conference after jumping ahead in the first half against Northern Colorado and then cruising to victory on the weight of their steal-happy defense.

The Wildcats offense started the game strong, taking a 4-17 lead in the first five minutes, forcing an early Bears timeout. Weber St. parlayed their early success into strong halftime lead, putting Northern Colorado at a 35-54 deficit at the first buzzer.

Despite accruing an impressive 38 rebounds to the Wildcats' 24, the Bears could not muster enough defense on the night to counter the Wildcats, who snatched 10 steals and shot .533 on the night. Northern Colorado made up seven points in the second half, but the comeback effort only changed the appearance, not the outcome. Wildcats win, 81-93.
