CEDAR CITY (AP) — Jerrick Harding scored 27 points and Cody John 22 on 7-of-9 shooting and Weber State beat Southern Utah 75-65 on Thursday.

Tim Fuller scored 11 and Weber State (8-13, 4-6 Big Sky Conference) finished 28-of-50 (56%) shooting.

The Wildcats led 32-26 at halftime and extended the margin to 50-38 with 11:31 left on a layup by Michal Kozak. The Thunderbirds closed to within five (56-51) with five minutes remaining before a 12-2 spurt by Weber State wrapped it up.

Weber State has won back-to-back contests following a two-game skid.

Andre Adams led Southern Utah (12-8, 5-4) with 17 points, Dre Marin 15 and Maizen Fausett 12. The Thunderbirds are 2-3 over their last five.

"We weren’t great today," SUU head coach Todd Simon said. "We’ve obviously been a fantastic defensive team, and we weren’t today. I thought it was a real physical game. We missed some shots and we let our frustrations carry over to the defensive end, and gave up buckets and drives that we don’t normally do so we’ve got to be better in that area."
