    OGDEN, Utah -- Branden Johnson made four 3-pointers while scoring 16 points as Montana State upset top-seeded Weber State 70-61 in the Big Sky Conference tournament semifinals on Tuesday night.

    The Bobcats (14-16) were the only conference team to beat Weber State (21-9) during the regular season and did it again on the Wildcats' home court to advance to the Big Sky championship game for the first time since 1999.

    Montana State plays defending champion Portland State on Wednesday for the conference's automatic NCAA tournament berth.

    Divaldo Mbunga added 11 points and 10 rebounds for the Bobcats, who lost the last five games of the regular season but have won two in a row in the conference tournament.

    Kellen McCoy led Weber State with 16 points. The Wildcats shot 33 percent in the game and were just 4-for-26 from 3-point range.
