Weber State is off to its worst start since Ron Abegglen arrived in Ogden. A rugged non-conference schedule has seen the Wildcats pull out wins over just Mt. St. Mary's and Seattle-Pacific while playing one of the nation's toughest schedules.
The Cats are 2-8 and embarking on what should be an easier stretch of games. After seeing Iowa, Utah, Auburn and Arizona State add L's to the record, Abegglen and his team are more than ready to take on Montana State and Montana as the Big Sky season begins.The only problem for Weber State, though, is that the games are on the road - the same place all but three games have been so far. In fact, WSU hasn't played in the Dee Events Center since pulling out a win over Seattle-Pacific in early December.
While playing on the road is bad news for Weber State, the good news is that the Wildcats are as strong as they've been since the season began. Senior center Andy Jensen returned to the lineup against Utah State last week and is contributing already. He led the team in scoring in Logan.
After the game in Bozeman, Weber will make the trip to Missoula and take on Montana.
Weber State's women's team also is eager to end its non-conference season and bid goodbye to its 0-10 record.
The women also tangle with the Montana schools but at least get to play in front of the home crowd, against Montana State tonight and Montana on Monday.
