Weber State tops Northern Iowa 59-56 in CIT semis

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) -- It seemed every shot was falling for
Weber State. Then came a quiet second half.

The Wildcats hung on and beat Northern Iowa 59-56 to reach the
finals of the tournament Saturday night.
Weber State (30-6) shot over 50 percent from the field in the
first half, but hit just one shot from beyond the arc after

"We had to go a different route," Weber State coach Randy Rahe
said. "We've seen teams take away our 3-point shot before, so
our guys have a feeling for what they have to do next."

Davion Berry scored 15 points and Scott Bamforth added 14,
including shooting 4 of 7 from the 3-point line, to lead the
Wildcats (30-6), who will face East Carolina in the CIT title
game Tuesday night.

The Wildcats started the game on a 14-2 run, capped by a
3-pointer by Bamforth. But Weber State could not maintain its
double-digit lead.

Northern Iowa (21-15) went on its own 15-5 run to cut the
Wildcats' lead to two points.

The Panthers stayed hot early in the second half with a 13-4 run
over the first six minutes to give them their first lead of the

"Shots aren't going to go in every night," said UNI senior Marc
Sonnen, who had 10 points. "I thought we picked it up after that
slow start. I think that shows good leadership from my teammates
and coaches."

Northern Iowa led by one with just under five minutes to go in
the game, but Berry scored four straight points to give the
Wildcats the lead. After a missed free throw from Berry, UNI got
one final look to tie the game but came up short.

"(Berry) had open looks, but they just weren't going in," Rahe
said. "That doesn't stop him from having an effect on the game.
He never loses his aggressiveness."

Seth Tuttle had 16 points and 10 rebounds to lead Northern Iowa
(22-14), which shot just 17.6 percent from beyond the arc. The
teams shot a combined 1 for 20 from 3-point range in the second
half, including 0 for 8 by Northern Iowa.

"We had enough looks and chances to get points," Northern Iowa
coach Ben Jacobson said. "We just didn't get enough points
