Big Sky Conference standings
• Sacramento State (14-14, 8-11) will play the regular season finale at home vs. Montana (22-8, 15-4) on Saturday evening at the Nest at 7:05 p.m.
• Prior to the game, Sacramento State seniors Kevin Hicks, Jordan Tolbert, Calvin Martin and Marcus Graves will be honored for their contributions to the program.
• Montana will be playing for a regular season championship and Sacramento State could finish as the No. 7, 8 or 9 seed for next week's Big Sky Tournament depending on Saturday night's outcome. The tournament is in Boise from March 13-16.
• A win would allow the Grizzlies to secure at least a share of the Big Sky regular season championship as Northern Colorado is also 15-4 in league.
• A win would allow Sacramento State to secure the No. 7 seed for the Big Sky Tournament and play the No. 10 seed on Wednesday at 11 a.m. PST. The Hornets would get the No. 8 seed with a loss to Montana, and a Northern Arizona loss at Northern Colorado. Sacramento State would be the 9 seed with a loss, and Northern Arizona win.
• Should the Hornets get the 8 or the 9 seed, they would play Wednesday in the first round of the Big Sky Tournament at 8:30 a.m. PST.
• The top five places receive a first round bye in the tournament, and four of those byes have been clinched - Montana, Northern Colorado, Weber State & Eastern Washington.
• The Hornets are coming off a 70-67 home win against Montana State, and have now won each of their last seven games on a Thursday.
• However, Saturday has not been nearly as kind. The Hornets have lost 11 consecutive games on a Saturday, and all 10 Saturday contests against a Big Sky Conference opponent. Overall, the Hornets are 2-11 on Saturday, including wins over Cal State Fullerton and Cal State Northridge.
• Sacramento State has won on six consecutive Senior Nights.
• Sacramento State has defeated every team in the Big Sky once except for Northern Colorado and Montana. The Hornets lost both games to Northern Colorado by six points or less and Montana dealt the Hornets their most lopsided conference loss of the year.
• In that game in Missoula on Jan. 3, the Grizzlies shot 65% from the 3-point line (13-20) and held a big rebounding advantage (40-26) in an 87-56 win over the Hornets.
• Sacramento State is 9-4 at home this season, including 5-4 against Big Sky Conference opponents. The Hornets have won four of their last five inside the Nest. Dating back to 2012, Sacramento State is 67-29 at home.
• Since dropping its first four games to open Big Sky play, Sacramento State has gone 8-7 over its last 15 conference games.
• Of the Hornets' 19 league games, 10 have been decided by six points or less. Sacramento State is 4-6 in those outcomes.
• Sacramento State is 9-41 all-time against Montana, but has won three of the last four meetings between the two teams inside the Nest.
