OGDEN, Utah, March 11 (UPI) -- Anthony Johnson hit a jumper with 10 seconds left Wednesday, giving Montana a 66-65 win over Weber State and a berth in the NCAA Tournament.

Johnson completed a sensational performance in which he scored 34 of his 42 points in the second half -- scoring his team's last 21 points and rallying the Grizzlies from a 22-point deficit in the title game of the Big Sky Conference Tournament.

Montana will appear in the NCAA tourney for the second time in four seasons.

Johnson was 13-of-22 from the field and 14-of-14 from the foul line. He had never scored more than 32 in a game prior to Wednesday.

The Grizzlies will take a 22-9 record into the NCAA Tournament. Weber State fell to 20-10.
