Sacramento State game notes (24 pages) - pdf
• Sacramento State will play its final non-conference road game on Saturday at Boise State. Tip-off at Taco Bell Arena is set for 1:05 p.m. PST.
• Sacramento State (2-7) recently snapped a six-game losing streak with its 97-74 victory over NAIA's Antelope Valley on Wednesday night. The Hornets are now 2-0 at home, and 0-7 away from the Nest.
• Boise State has won four straight and will bring an 8-1 record into Monday's matchup. The Broncos are 5-0 at home with each of those victories coming by at least 20 points. Boise State is currently ranked 41st in the nation in the RPI report, and on Dec. 1, snapped Oregon's 46-game home winning streak with a 73-70 win in Eugene.
• After Saturday's game, Sacramento State will enjoy a nine-day layoff for Finals Week before returning to play at home on Dec. 19 vs. CSUN. That begins a stretch of four straight games in Sacramento, including a Dec. 21 tilt with Portland at the Golden 1 Center.
• Sacramento State is playing without what would have been its starting back court (Marcus Graves, Jiday Ugbaja) due to injuries.
• The Hornets also had a 2-7 record a year ago while facing a similar tough early-season schedule, and finished 13-18 overall and 9-9 in the Big Sky Conference.
• Sacramento State has never beaten Boise State, posting an 0-6 record against the Broncos. The two teams will be facing each other for the first time since a 99-66 Bronco win in Boise on Dec. 16, 2006.
• In that game on Dec. 16, 2006 (box on page 10), Haron Hargrave (16) and Loren Leath (14) combined for 30 of the Hornets' 66 points in the loss.
• The Hornets are 0-4 when playing on Boise State's home floor, and have lost those games by an average of 16.5 points.
• Boise State is coming off a season in which it reached the second round of the NIT while going 20-12 overall and 12-6 in the Mountain West Conference.
• Boise State will be the third Mountain West team the Hornets have played this year, which includes losses at Colorado State (72-61) and San Diego State (89-52).
• Saturday's game will be streamed live and free via broncosports.com.
• Every game this year will be broadcast live on KTKZ 1380 AM The Answer with 21st-year play-by-play man Steve McElroy calling all the action.
