Last Saturday, the Vikings couldn't handle the Grizzlies and fell 82-73.

Meanwhile, Sacramento State came into Saturday's game having lost 11 straight, but that streak is now in the rearview.

Saturday's matchup is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: Portland State have been smashing the glass this season, having averaged 36.4 rebounds per game. However, it's not like Sacramento State struggles in that department as they've been averaging 36.2 rebounds per game. Given these competing strengths, it'll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.
