Big Sky Conference standings
• Fresh off its second straight loss of three points or less, Sacramento State (6-20, 3-10) will host Weber State (18-7, 11-2) on Saturday night at 7 p.m. Saturday is Whiteout the Nest sponsored by The Crossings, as the first 500 fans in attendance will receive a free t-shirt.
• Only five games remain in the regular season until all 12 teams in the Big Sky Conference travel to Reno for the Big Sky Tournament (March 6-10). Three of the Hornets' final five regular season games will come at home.
• The Hornets have dropped five straight games, including a 67-64 home loss on Thursday against Idaho State and a 71-69 overtime loss at Montana last Saturday.
• Sacramento State has dropped three straight at home, a rarity for a program that is 57-23 (.713 winning percentage) inside the Nest dating back to the 2012-13 season.
• The Hornets are 5-5 at home this season, including a 2-4 mark against league opposition.
• The team is trying to avoid its first four-game home losing streak since the 2011-12 squad dropped five straight. In addition, the Hornets are looking to avoid losing four straight Big Sky home games for the first time since the 2011-12 season.
• Sacramento State senior forward Justin Strings, who has scored in double figures in 46 consecutive games, has 1,465 career points. He needs just 25 points to surpass Loren Leath (1,489) and become the Hornets' Div. I era (1991-pres.) leading scorer.
• Overall, Strings is fifth in scoring in program history (1948-pres.) in scoring, trailing Mikh McKinney (1,468), Leath (1,489), Chuck Mobley (1,517) and Robert Martin (1,774).
• Weber State has won eight straight games, including back-to-back overtime wins in its last two games at Portland State (95-86) and home vs. Northern Colorado (71-66).
• The Wildcats sit in second in the league standings, one and a half games behind Montana (13-1). Sacramento State is currently 11th, but just one game out of the ninth spot.
• The Hornets are 7-39 all-time against Weber State, which includes a 5-17 mark at home. However, Sacramento State has won two of the last three meetings inside the Nest, including a 77-74 victory a year ago.
• There was also the Hail Garrity game on Feb. 1, 2014, when Dylan Garrity buried a 75-footer at the overtime buzzer for a 78-75 Hornet victory. That win snapped a 12-game losing streak against Weber State that had dated back to 2008.
• Weber State defeated the Hornets earlier this year in Ogden, 80-64. The Wildcats broke open a close game by going on a 15-2 run over the game's final 4:27.
• Weber State has the conference's leading scorer in sophomore guard Jerrick Harding who is averaging 21.8 ppg on .540 shooting from the floor and .437 from the 3-point line.
• Free video streams will be provided for every game (home or away) the rest of the season at www.WatchBigSky.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.
