What to Know

The Sacramento State Hornets have enjoyed the comforts of home their last three games, but now they must head out on the road. They will square off against the California Riverside Highlanders at 5 p.m. ET Sunday at Student Recreation Center. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

While not quite a landslide, the contest between Sacramento State and the Menlo Oaks this past Friday was still a pretty decisive one as the Hornets wrapped it up with a 67-53 win at home.

Meanwhile, California Riverside strolled past the California Baptist Lancers with points to spare last week, taking the game 70-54.

Sacramento State have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 12 point spread they are up against. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with Sacramento State, who are 3-4 against the spread.

The wins brought Sacramento State up to 4-5 and the Highlanders to 6-4. Two offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Hornets have only been able to knock down 40% percent of their shots, which is the 22nd lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. California Riverside has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 38th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 64.5 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
