If you turned off tonight's Big Sky Championship game when Weber State went to the locker room at halftime with a 20-point lead on Montana, you missed quite a show in the secondâ†µ
You see, the Grizzlies came back and took the conference's automatic bid, stunning the top-seeded Wildcats on their home court.
And it was mostly due to the efforts of one man, 6-3 senior guard Anthony Johnson.â†µ
You see the Grizzlies scored 66 points on the night, to top Weber State by one. Mr. Johnson had 42 of them.â†µ
Check out his line for the night:â†µ
- 13 of 22 from the field â†µ
- 2 of 5 from beyond the arc â†µ
- 14 of 14 from the free throw line â†µ
Whichever two or three seed draws the Grizzlies in the first round of the NCAA Tournament next week may want to try guarding him. Just a suggestion.â†µ
However, Johnson's performance was only the most impressive of the night because he won. Nicholls State's Anatoly Bose scored 40 of the Colonels' 57 points in a losing effort against Sam Houston State in the Southland quarterfinals.
