OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Weber State rallied from a 16-point deficit in the second half to beat Northern Colorado 88-84 in overtime Saturday night.

Daviin Davis 3-pointer gave WSU (7-7, 1-0 Big Sky) an 86-84 lead with 18 seconds left in overtime. Davis forced UNC to turn the ball over and Kellen McCoy sealed it with two free throws with 9.3 seconds left.

McCoy scored 23 points and Damian Lillard had 18 for WSU, which set a school record with 15 3-pointers.

The Bears (5-10, 1-2) opened the second half with a 11-0 run, including two 3-pointers from Will Figures. That gave Northern Colorado a 50-34 lead, its biggest advantage of the game, less than two minutes into the second half.

WSU trailed 73-66 with 45 seconds left in regulation but Lillards 3-pointer with 3 seconds left tied the score at 74 and sent it to overtime.

Figures and Jabril Banks each scored 20 for UNC.
