OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Dan Henrys finger roll with 1:11 left in the game lifted Weber State to a 59-57 victory over Southern Utah on Tuesday night.

Neither team scored after Henrys basket, and Southern Utahs Orlando Griego missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

David Patten led the Wildcats (7-5) with 11 points and eight rebounds while Tyler Billings came off the bench to add 10 points.

Steve Barnes, who led the Thunderbirds (8-4) with 14 points, hit a pair of free throws that started a 12-0 run which put SUU ahead 48-43 with 8:59 left in the game. Griego also reached double figures for SUU with 12 points.

Weber State outrebounded SUU 40-21 with Arturas Valeika pulling down 13, including an offensive rebound that he put back for a score to tie the game 57-57 with 2:13 left in the game.

Weber State shot just 29.6 percent in the first half -- compared to Southern Utah's 12-of-24 shooting -- but hit seven of its first 10 shots in the second half to take a 43-36 lead less than six minutes into it. WSUs Dezmon Harris scored seven of his eight points during that stretch.
