What to Know
The Sacramento State Hornets and the Idaho Vandals are set to clash at 10:30 a.m. ET March 9 at Idaho Central Arena in the first round of the Big Sky Conference Tourney. The Hornets earned an 83-51 win in their most recent game against Idaho in February.
The Montana Grizzlies typically have all the answers at home, but this past Saturday Sacramento State proved too difficult a challenge. Sacramento State escaped with a win by the margin of a single free throw, 72-71.
Meanwhile, Idaho picked up a 78-69 win over the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks this past Saturday.
A couple stats to keep an eye on: Sacramento State is stumbling into the contest with the 43rd fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 65.9 on average. The Vandals have experienced some struggles of their own as they are 353rd worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 80.4 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
