OGDEN, Utah – The Weber State Wildcats snapped a three-game losing streak by taking down Sacramento State 65-50 on Thursday night at the Dee Events Center.

Koby McEwen also had a double-double with 11 points and 12 boards.

Dontay Bassett chipped in 11 points in 31 minutes, while Seikou Sisoho Jawara added nine points and four assists. It was a close game in the first half with the Hornets outscoring the Wildcats 35-34 but the second half was a tremendous defensive effort by Weber State, scoring 31 points and holding Sacramento State to just 15 points.

Sacramento State shot 40% from the field in the first half but just 26% in the second half on 6-of-23 shooting, including 1-of-9 from beyond the arc.

William Fitzpatrick led the Hornets with 17 points, including 4-of-11 from downtown. Bryce Fowler added 15 points.

Weber State dominated the rebounding battle 34-22. Although, the Wildcats won the game, they turned the ball over 18 times and Sacramento State had just 12.

Weber State improved their record to 19-8 overall and 12-4 in Big Sky play. They will host Northern Colorado on Saturday, February 19 at 6 p.m. MT on ESPN+.
