OGDEN, Utah (AP) - So much in Scott Bamforth's earlier life was about losing, his dad in the seventh grade, his mom 2 1/2 years later then nearly his own wife and newborn son at the start of his junior season at Weber State.
The 6-foot-2 senior has overcome it all.
Now the former Albuquerque player has helped the Wildcats set a school and Big Sky record for victories in a season while advancing to Wednesday night's CIT quarterfinals against Oral Roberts. Along the way the 23-year-old has surpassed current NBA rookie standout Damian Lillard as Weber's 3-point king.
Coaches, teammates and friends couldn't be happier for Bamforth, forced to grow up much too fast then given a dose of tough love to make him the man he is today.
