Weber St. 86, N. Arizona 79

OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- David Patten rebounded his own missed free throw and immediately scored to finish with 22 points as Weber State rallied to defeat Northern Arizona 86-79 Saturday night.

Patten, who scored six in the final 1:21, came up with the big play to put Weber State ahead 83-79 with 33 seconds left as the Wildcats (16-9, 9-3 Big Sky) rallied from a five-point deficit with 1:35 remaining.

Dezmon Harris, Juan Pablo Silveira and Arturas Valeika all scored 14 points for Weber State, which scored the final 12 points of the game.

Stephen Sir led the Lumberjacks (12-11, 7-5) with 22 points, going 7-for-12 from 3-point range. Tyrone Bazy added 20 for Northern Arizona while teammate Ruben Boykin Jr. scored 16.

After trailing 79-74, the Wildcats tied the score after a dunk and free throw by Patten and a layup by Valeika.

Patten played the game with a protective mask after suffering multiple fractions in his cheekbone during a game Thursday night. He took an elbow to the face and left the game with 30 seconds left.
