What to Know

After three games on the road, the Sacramento State Hornets are heading back home. The Hornets and the Idaho State Bengals will face off in a Big Sky battle at 10 p.m. ET on Thursday at The Hornets Nest. The teams split their matchups last year, with Idaho State winning the first 57-56 at home on the road and Sacramento State taking the second 70-65.

Sacramento State was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Monday as they fell 70-65 to the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks.

Meanwhile, Idaho State suffered a grim 89-63 defeat to the Eastern Washington Eagles on Monday.

Sacramento State is the favorite in this one, with an expected 6.5-point margin of victory. Their home court has been no bettor’s paradise, though, as they’ve failed to beat the spread in three of their six home games.

The losses put the Hornets at 5-10 and the Bengals at 3-15. A pair of offensive stats to keep an eye on: Sacramento State is stumbling into the matchup with the 39th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 65.4 on average. Idaho State has experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 39.40% percent of their shots, which is the fifth lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
