What to Know
The Sacramento State Hornets have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the Weber State Wildcats and are hoping to record their first win since March 11 of 2020. The Hornets and Weber State will face off in a Big Sky battle at 10 p.m. ET Thursday at The Hornets Nest.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Sacramento State is expected to win a tight contest. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past five games, so buyers beware.
Sacramento State is now 12-14 while the Wildcats sit at 13-13. A pair of offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Hornets are stumbling into the game with the 36th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 66.4 on average.
