Just coming off of a win over the Idaho State Bengals, the Weber State Wildcats look for back to back victories as they get the home game and this is a Wildcats team which defeated the Bengals by double figures. This comes down to how many points will Weber State win by as the Bengals are a dismal 3-16 for the season.

Idaho State vs Weber State  Big Sky's Best

They might not be able to compete with the likes of Kentucky or UCLA, but the Weber State Wildcats have managed to feast off of the Big Sky Conference, going 6-1, thus, placing them in the top spot in the conference.

Tonight,the Wildcats get another favorable matchup against the Idaho State Bengals. This is a team that Weber State beat 85-73 in the Bengals building and although the spread is a bit high at 16 points, this should be a good spot for the Wildcats as they've won 9 out of their last 10 games overall.

To their credit, Idaho State shot 46.2% from beyond the arc in the first matchup with the Wildcats and Ethan Telfair and Robert Jones III both managed 22 points apiece, but in the end, it wasn't enough as Idaho State had to play "catch up" as they trailed 45-27 at halftime.

One Man Show?

Although Weber State is more than a "one man show" with many contributors such as junior guard, Dusty Baker, who is shooting over 50% from beyond the arc, this is a team that relies heavily on one player for offense and this is senior Jeremy Senglin.

Senglin accounts for more than a quarter of the Wildcats points, checking in at 20.2 points per game to go along with 45.9% shooting from 3-point range. He had a 21 point performance against Idaho State in their previous matchup as he shot 4 of 9 from beyond the arc and was a menace on defense. In order to cover the somewhat large spread, Senglin will need to be at his best.

As stated earlier, Weber State won the first matchup on the road and by double figures. This is a team with momentum and although any team can beat any given team on any given day, Idaho State has proven that they can't close out a game despite having a bit of talent on their squad.
