Big Sky Conference standings
• Fresh off Thursday's convincing 74-58 road win at Idaho State, the Hornets (9-9, 3-6) will play the second leg of their three-game road trip on Saturday at Weber State (13-8, 7-3). Tip-off at the Dee Events Center is set for 6:05 p.m. PST.
• Sacramento State has won three of its last five games. In fact, if you go back six games, the Hornets could be riding a six-game winning streak if not for close losses vs. Idaho State (72-70), Southern Utah (76-71) and Eastern Washington (94-92 in OT).
• Sacramento State's 3-6 conference record is a little misleading as five of the team's eight league games have been decided by five points or less. Unfortunately for the Hornets, the team is 1-4 in those close outcomes.
• Sacramento State currently sits in ninth place in the 11-team Big Sky, but is just one game back of sixth place and two games back of fourth place.
• Thursday's win allowed the Hornets to move their road record to 3-6, and 2-3 against Big Sky opposition. The 16-point win at Idaho State was the team's largest margin of victory on the road against a Big Sky team since a 77-49 win at Southern Utah on Jan. 11, 2014.
• With 11 games remaining in the regular season, Sacramento State has already surpassed its win total from all of last year (7-25 overall, 4-14 in the Big Sky).
• All 11 Big Sky teams are playing a 20-game conference schedule this year, and Saturday's game will mark the first meeting between the Hornets and Weber State.
• Weber State is 13-8, 7-3, but has dropped two straight, including a 75-68 loss at Montana on Saturday, and 76-75 home loss to Portland State on Thursday.
• Prior to the two-game losing streak, the Wildcats had won eight of nine games.
• Weber State was selected second in the Big Sky preseason coaches and media polls.
• The Wildcats have four players averaging double figures - Jerrick Harding (21.8 ppg), Cody John (14.7 ppg), Brekkott Chapman (12.7 ppg) and Zach Braxton (10.7 ppg).
• In a series that dates back to 1969, Sacramento State is 7-40 against Weber State. That includes a 2-22 record when playing the Wildcats in Ogden.
• Last season, Weber State swept the season series. The Hornets are 3-5 over the last eight games against the Wildcats dating back to 2014.
