OGDEN, Utah (AP) Davion Berry had seven of his 15 points in overtime on Friday night and top-seeded Weber State survived a scare from No. 6 seed Northern Colorado 66-63 in the semifinals of the Big Sky tournament.

Berry scored five points in the first 44 seconds of overtime to give the Wildcats (18-11) a 60-55 lead and assisted on a Jordan Richardson 3-pointer to extend to 63-56 with 2:03 left.

The Bears (18-11) went on a 7-1 run to close within one, and Berry answered with a layup with 12 seconds left to advance Weber State to 66-63.

Jordan Wilson's attempt at a buzzer-beating 3-pointer for NCU was long and the Wildcats advanced to the championship where they will host No. 2 seed North Dakota (17-15) Saturday night.


Derrick Barden scored 21 for Northern Colorado, which fell behind 48-37 before finishing the second half on an 18-7 run to force overtime.
