Big Sky Conference standings
• Coming off the team's most complete effort of the year, an 87-68 home win vs. Montana State, Sacramento State (5-13, 2-3) begins a season-long three-game Big Sky Conference road trip Thursday at Weber State (10-7, 3-2). Tip at the Dee Events Center is 6:05 p.m. PST.
• The 19-point win vs. Montana State was easily the Hornets' most lopsided victory over a Div. I opponent this year, and snapped a three-game losing streak.
• Sacramento State is still seeking its first win away from home this season. The Hornets are 5-2 inside the Nest, but they are 0-7 on the road and 0-4 at neutral sites.
• Among those 11 losses away from home are four that came by five points or less. That includes a 69-68 loss at Idaho in which the Hornets blew an 11-point lead with 7:30 left.
• The 87 points scored vs. Montana State was the most against a Div. I opponent, and is part of a seven-game stretch in which the Hornets are averaging 73.6 points per game. Sacramento State is still next to last in the Big Sky averaging 67.1 points per game.
• Including his 31-point effort (14-of-24 shooting) vs. Montana State, senior forward Justin Strings has now led the Hornets in scoring in six straight games. He has scored in double figures in 38 consecutive games, the sixth longest active streak in the nation.
• Weber State, which is coming off a 10-point road loss at North Dakota, has still won six of its last eight games. The Wildcats are 8-1 at home this year, with the lone loss a surprising 62-60 defeat to Idaho State to open league play on Dec. 30. Of those eight home wins, three have come against non-Div. I opposition.
• Weber State is averaging 79.1 points per game (2nd in the league) while shooting a robust .507 from the field, the best mark in the league and 11th best in the nation.
• The Wildcats also allow just 68.0 points per game, the second best mark in the Big Sky.
• In a series which dates back to 1969, Sacramento State is 7-38 all-time against Weber State. However, three of those wins have come over the last four years. That includes last season's 77-74 home win in the teams' lone meeting of the season.
• The Hornets are 2-21 when playing Weber State in Ogden, with the lone victories coming during the 2005-06 and 2014-15 seasons.
• Weber State boasts the Big Sky's leading scorer, sophomore guard Jerrick Harding, who is averaging 21.5 points per game. He is shooting .562 from the field (5th in the Big Sky), an incredible percentage for a guard while connecting on 3-pointers at a .400 clip and free throws at an .853 clip.
