Against the Lumberjacks, the Hornets scored a season-high 107 points on an excellent 42.4% shooting. Six different Hornets finished in double-digits, led by Camariah King's career-high 25. Kennedy Nicholas and Tiana Johnson each recorded a double-double.

On Saturday, Sacramento State continued its hot shooting, scoring 91 points while shooting a season-high 48.5%, including 37.5% from three, also a season-best. All five starters finished in double-digits.

After three straight games on the road, Sacramento State is back in the Nest for the weekend. Of the team's 15 remaining games, eight will be played in the friendly confines of Sacramento State. 

At home this year, the Hornets are 2-3, average 72.4 points, and are shooting 33.7%. 

Victory on the Road

Sacramento State's 91-67 win on the road at Weber State last Saturday was its first road win of the season. The Hornets are now 1-8 despite averaging nearly 76 points per game away from the Nest.

The Century Mark

The Hornets scored 107 points last Thursday at Northern Arizona, their first 100-point game since scoring 109 last November in a 109-107 win over Illinois at Cal Poly's ShareSLO Holiday Invitational over the Thanksgiving Holiday.

Sacramento State shot 45.0% in two games last week, well above its season-average of 34.8%. Included in that 45% was an excellent 36.3% showing from beyond the arc.
