SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Dev's got game.
Junior forward Davion Berry scored 22 points to lead Weber State to its eighth win in a row with a 70-55 victory over Sacramento State on Thursday at The Nest.
Senior shooting guard Scott Bamforth added 14 points and freshman forward Joel Bolomboy had 11 points and seven rebounds as the Wildcats won their 12th straight over the Hornets.
The Oakland connection continues to pay off for Weber State.
Current NBA rookie of the year contender Damian Lillard led the way, then helped his childhood friends Frank "Mook" Otis and Berry find their path to the Wildcats, where they have been a major part of the starting lineup together.
Weber State's Oakland contingent was well-represented, with about 30 purple-clad fans making the drive over, many of them wearing "Dev Got Game" T-shirts.
Berry said the support meant a lot to him.
"I'm a family-type of guy," he said. "All I have is my family and friends, so I just wanted to show up and play good."
Especially for his young son, also named Davion.
"I had to set a great example for my son," he said.
When he was done, Berry was 7 for 11 from the field, 4 for 7 from beyond the arc and for good measure, dished a team-high seven assists and grabbed five boards.
"I just felt like I wasn't aggressive the last game at Oral Roberts. I let the game attack me instead of me attacking the game, so tonight I wanted to have that positive energy and make sure I attacked the game," he said.
After being held to seven points in his last game, his first time below double digits in nine games, Berry came out on fire, matching that total by scoring Weber State's first seven points.
Weber State (21-5, 15-2 Big Sky) swatted away Sacramento State (13-13, 7-10) with an explosive second-half charge fueled by 3-point bombs.
"Dev just plays the game," Weber State coach Randy Rahe said. "He felt good tonight and he was just attacking. He made shots.
"He's a good all-around basketball player."
WSU, leading the country in field goal shooting and 3-point percentage, hit 45.1 percent from the field and tossed in 11 of 20 from beyond the arc (55.0 percent).
Sac State, which promoted the game as a whiteout and had its best crowd in a decade with 1,362 rowdy, toga-wearing fans, made a couple of brief charges before the Wildcats starting hitting treys.
"We made some big 3s. Their zone was effective for awhile, we had a little bit of a hard time with it, but then all of a sudden, we loosened up and started making 3s," Rahe said.
"That gave us some confidence. Once we got some confidence, everybody got it going. We've been a second-half offensive team, we've played much better the second half in almost the last six or seven games."
Center Konnor Veteto and Dylan Garrity led the Hornets with 12 points each, while leading scorer John Dickson finished with seven. Garrity had eight assists and Veteto had a team-high seven rebounds as WSU won the battle of the glass 37-28.
"They tried to give us their biggest shot," Berry said. "We handled it well. All we had to do was play defense and it was in our control."
Weber State faces Northern Arizona on Saturday in the Wildcats' final regular-season road game.
