OGDEN -- The Weber State women's basketball squad dropped another Big Sky Conference battle on Saturday night, falling to the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks 65-49 on Senior Night at the Dee Events Center.
The Wildcats made a strong push just before halftime to give the home fans a charge, but frosty shooting after the break cost WSU, now 0-27 on the season, 0-18 in Big Sky play.
The Lumberjacks shot 49.1 percent from the field on the road, improving to 8-19 overall, 7-11 in the Big Sky standings.
NAU was led by Amy Patton, who had 15 points and nine rebounds. Erikka Banks added 13 points and nine rebounds, while Amanda Frost added a dozen points.
The Lumberjacks outrebounded Weber State 39-33 and score 20 points off Wildcats' miscues.
Coach BethAnn Ord's team had hoped to send senior Kia Rhodes out with a victory.
Instead, the Wildcats will try to figure out how to get a win in one of their final two games of the season: at Portland State and Eastern Washington.
Weber State has now lost 46 straight games.
The 'Cats were led by Desiree Ramos, who scroed 14 points and added three assists and a pair of steals.
Regina Okoye added 13 points for WSU, while Kalie Matthews had four points but corralled 17 rebounds on the night.
Neither team was effective from the outside; Northern Arizona was 1 of 9 beyond the arc, while Weber State was 3 of 10.
NAU led 30-24 at the half, and built the lead to 22 points late in the game.
The Wildcats shot 29.6 percent from the field after the break.
* 'CATS FALL TO 0-13: At Las Vegas, the Wildcats' hitting struggles continued on Saturday afternoon during the second day of the Eller Media Stadium Classic.
The Weber State softball team garnered just four combined hits losses to Cal State Northridge and New Mexico State.
The Wildcats fell 8-0 in five innings to the Matadors in a game that was delayed by an hour from its morning start time due to over-watering of the Eller Media Stadium grounds on Saturday morning, and then dropped a 4-0 decision to New Mexico State in the afternoon.
Freshman second baseman Brooke Ford notched two of the Wildcats four hits, getting one in each of the two games. Junior Jasmine Ioane, in the designated player role, and freshman first baseman Krystin Kubo each had single against the Aggies.
Northridge (7-12) scored three runs in the first, three in the third and the final two in the fifth, ending the game on run rule.
New Mexico State (11-7) score one run in four innings against junior right-hander Kylee Colvin, who pitched the complete game allowing just six hits.
Weber State (0-13) will take on the Matadors and Aggies again on Sunday to wrap up the three-day, six-game tournament.
