Big Sky Conference standings
• Sacramento State (11-12, 5-9) will play the fourth and final game of its season-long four game homestand on Thursday evening against Weber State (16-10, 10-5). Tip-off inside the Nest is set for 7:05 p.m.
• The Hornets are 2-1 on the homestand thus far, and each of those games were decided by double figures. That includes wins over Portland State (78-67) and Southern Utah (84-73), and most recently, a loss on Saturday to Northern Arizona (78-66).
• Sacramento State is 7-4 at home this year (3-4 vs. Big Sky teams) and 65-29 inside the Nest dating back to the 2012-13 season.
• The Hornets are 5-5 over their last 10 games, and three of those five losses have come by six points or less, including one in overtime.
• Sacramento State's 5-9 conference record is a little misleading as the Hornets are 1-5 in Big Sky games decided by six points or less. The only nail-biting victory against a league foe came at Northern Arizona on Jan. 17.
• With just six regular season games left, Sacramento State sits in ninth place in the conference standings, but is just 1.5 games back of sixth place. Of the team's remaining six games, three will come at home and three will be on the road.
• This year's Big Sky Tournament (March 13-16) will take place in Boise, Idaho. The previous three seasons were in Reno, Nev.
• All 11 Big Sky teams are playing a 20-game conference schedule this year, and Thursday's matchup will be the Hornets' second against Weber State.
• In the first matchup in Ogden on Feb. 2, the Hornets trailed just 68-63 with 2:11 to play, but eventually fell to the Wildcats, 75-65.
• Weber State, which has finished third place or better in the Big Sky standings 11 times in the last 12 seasons, was selected to finish second in this year's preseason coaches poll.
• The Wildcats are 5-4 on the road this season, including 5-2 against conference teams.
• Weber State has played the last three games without senior center Zach Braxton (ankle) who is currently averaging 10.6 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.
• Sacramento State is 7-41 all-time against Weber State, including a 5-18 record when playing at home. The Hornets have split their last four home games vs. the Wildcats.
• One of the craziest games in the Nest's history came against Weber State on Feb. 1, 2014. In that game, Dylan Garrity buried a 75-footer at the overtime buzzer to beat the Wildcats, 78-75. It was the No. 1 play on ESPN SportsCenter's Top 10 Plays that night.
