Bliznyuk scores 27, Eastern Washington beats Weber St. 75-70

OGDEN, Utah (AP) Bogdan Bliznyuk scored 27 points, 19 in the second half, and Eastern Washington beat Weber State with a 75-70 victory on Thursday night that ended the Wildcats' nine-game winning streak.

The Wildcats (19-8, 12-3), with alum and Portland Trail Blazer Damian Lillard in attendance, dropped a game behind first-place Montana (13-2), which was idle, in the Big Sky Conference while the Eagles (15-13, 10-5) moved to within a game of third-place Idaho (11-4), which lost at Idaho State.

Jerrick Harding's basket had Weber State within three with nine seconds left but Bliznyuk, who came into the game having made 63 consecutive free throws, sank his only two attempts of the game with five seconds remaining. Bliznyuk moved into third place for single-season consecutive makes, one out of second and eight from the mark held by Gary Buchanan (Villanova, 2000-01).

Jacob Davison scored 17 points, 12 in the second half, off the bench for the Eagles with Mason Peatling adding 15.

Jerrick Hardin scored 17 points and Brekkott Chapman 15 for Weber.

Davison capped a 9-0 run with five points with EWU taking the lead for good 56-49 with 7:43 left.
