What to Know

After a two-game homestand, the Weber State Wildcats will be on the road. The Wildcats and the Portland State Vikings will face off in a Big Sky battle at 10 p.m. ET on Thursday at The Viking Pavilion. Portland State should still be riding high after a win, while Weber State will be looking to get back in the win column.

Weber State was close but no cigar on Saturday as they fell 83-79 to the Northern Colorado Bears.

Speaking of close games: Portland State escaped with a win last week against the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks by the margin of a single free throw, 68-67.

Weber State is the favorite in this one, with an expected 5-point margin of victory. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the team has let down bettors in their past seven games.

The Wildcats are now 19-9 while the Vikings sit at 9-15. Two numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Weber State ranks 31st in college basketball when it comes to steals given up per game, with only 5.3 on average. But Portland State enters the contest with 9.3 steals per game on average, good for 12th best in college basketball. Ball control might end up being a major factor in this one.
