"I'm proud of the guys and how hard they fought tonight," MSU coach Brian Fish said in an article on the MSU website. "They played so hard, but (Weber State) made some tough shots, some deep shots that as a staff we decided we'd give them to take away other things. Credit them, but our guys left it all on the floor so my hat's off to them, as well."

MSU will play at Montana on Saturday in the second Brawl of the Wild game this season.
