Sacramento State

Sacramento State is coming off a 2016-17 season in which the team went 13-18 overall and 9-9 in the Big Sky Conference. An 88-83 win at Southern Utah on Jan. 12 began a stretch in which the Hornets won 10 of their final 17 games, including a victory in the Big Sky Tournament. Tenth-year head coach Brian Katz welcomes back eight players and three starters from a year ago. The roster includes top returner and team co-captain Justin Strings, who was a second team all-league choice and enters the season three points shy of 1,000. Over the last three years, Sacramento State’s 28 combined conference wins are tied for fifth most among the Big Sky’s 12 schools.
