Weber State’s Kyle Bullinger gets a shot to continue his march through the university’s record book tonight as the Wildcats travel to Montana State at 7 p.m.

Bullinger, a 6-foot-6 forward, is finally playing up to the form that made him such a strong player during the Big Sky Conference basketball championships after suffering a spat of injuries earlier this season.

Now all he needs are just eight points to become the 24th player to score 1,000 career points at Weber State University. He has already achieved the feat of becoming the 22nd player at WSU to earn more than 500 rebounds.

Bullinger suffered an elbow injury against San Jose State on Dec. 3 and has been working his way back into form, averaging 6.2 points and 5.5 rebounds.

While he has been on the rebound, the Wildcats (20-4, 12-1) have been steady thanks to the solid play of junior Damian Lillard, who continues to lead the nation scoring averaging 25.1 points a a game and is on the Oscar Robertson Trophy Midseason Watch list.

The Wildcats already have clinched at least second place in the Big Sky and has a chance to host the tournament if it can finish ahead of Montana, which is also 12-1 in league play. Weber State visits Montana on Feb. 28.

While that game features the two best teams in the league, today’s game should be a bit easier for the Wildcats since Montana State (11-13, 6-7) is struggling and has lost five games in a row.

The Bobcats do lead the Big Sky in blocks, averaging four per game and are led by Xavier Blount, who is 13th in the Big Sky in scoring at 11.7 points a game.
