OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Dusty Baker fired off the Weber State bench to score 20 points and lead the Wildcats past Montana, 60-54 Saturday night to take sole possession of first place in the Big Sky Conference, breaking a first-place tie with the Grizzlies.

Playing without center Joel Bolomboy, who suffered a bone bruise in his knee in a game last week with Northern Arizona, the Wildcats took control early, building a 30-22 lead at intermission.

Michael Oguine got to the basket for a layup with just under a minute left to pull Montana within five, 56-51. Kyndahl Hill and Baker each added a free throw for Weber State and Jack Lopez drilled a 3-pointer for the Grizzlies to set the final margin.

Cody John and Zach Braxton each added 13 points for Weber State (22-7, 14-2).

Oguine finished with 21 points and eight boards for Montana (18-9, 13-3). Martin Breunig added 15 points.
