ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) Blake Hamilton had 23 points with eight rebounds and scored Buffalo's final five points Saturday to help the Bulls beat Weber State 74-72 in the third-place game of the Great Alaska Shootout.

Hamilton's 3-pointer gave the Bulls a 72-68 lead with 15 seconds left and his pair of free throws made it 74-71 at the 5-second mark.

Buffalo (4-2) took a 69-65 lead with an 8-0 run capped by Willie Conner's 3-point play with 1:07 left.

Jeremy Senglin hit a 3-pointer to cut the deficit to 72-71 for Weber State (2-3) with 8 seconds left. After Hamilton's free throws, the Bulls fouled Weber State's Dusty Baker twice to prevent a game-tying 3-pointer.
