OGDEN, Utah (AP) Damian Lillard scored a career-high 41 points as he made a driving layup with 10.7 seconds left in double overtime and converted the old-fashioned 3-point play as Weber State outlasted San Jose State in a 91-89 double-overtime victory Saturday night.
Lillard, who entered the game leading the nation in scoring at 25.6 points per game, hit a 3-pointer with 5.6 seconds left in regulation to send it to overtime for Weber State (5-1).
James Kinney scored 28 points, including a couple of 3-pointers to bring San Jose State (3-5) back in the second overtime. Keith Shamburger hit a pair of free throws to put San Jose State up by one with 21 seconds left, before Lillard's game-winner and a Weber State defensive stop.
Weber State coach Randy Rahe won his 100th career game.
