OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Weber State is picked to repeat as regular-season champion in Big Sky Conference men's basketball.
The Wildcats topped polls from the media and the league's coaches on Wednesday.
Weber State got 23 of 28 first-place votes in the media poll and four votes for No. 1 from the coaches, who were not allowed to vote for their own team.
Montana was picked second in the coaches' poll, but third by the media. Reporters tabbed Portland State, which has won the last two Big Sky tournaments, at No. 2 and Montana third. Idaho State is third in the coaches poll, followed by Portland State.
The polls were identical for spots 5-9: Montana State, Northern Colorado, Northern Arizona, Eastern Washington and Sacramento State.
