OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- NCAA scoring leader Damian Lillard scored 22 points and Bryon Fulton added a season-high 16 points off the bench as Weber State held off Eastern Washington for an 84-75 win Saturday, its fourth straight.

Scott Bamforth added 13 and Kyle Bullinger had 10 for the Wildcats (20-4, 12-1 Big Sky), who led the whole way but could never relax as the Eagles (11-14, 5-7) hung around. Cliff Colimon scored all 20 of his points after halftime and Parker Kelly added a season-high 17 points off the bench for Eastern Washington, which dropped its second conference contest in a row.

Lillard was 12-for-12 from the line despite going 4 of 13 from the field. Weber State, the top free-throw shooting team in the country, was 32 of 35 from the line and outrebounded Eastern Washington 44-35.
