Cheney, Wash. – The Eastern Washington University women's basketball team hits the road for a pair of Big Sky Conference games this week, beginning with a rematch against Sacramento State on Thursday, Feb. 12, at 7 p.m. PT.

Eastern (13-8, 6-4 BSC) is coming off of a sweep of Montana and Montana State this past week for just the seventh time in program history. The Eagles held off the Lady Griz, 65-64, last Thursday, Feb. 5, before cruising past the Bobcats, 72-58, on Saturday, Feb. 7.

Sophomore Jade Redmon had outstanding performances in both contests, averaging 17.5 points per game on 66.7 percent shooting from the field and 81.8 percent from the free throw line. She also averaged 6.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.5 steals.

Sacramento State (10-12, 8-3 BSC) enters Thursday's contest having lost two of its last three games, all three of which came on the road. The Hornets are 6-1 at home this season, suffering their only home defeat back on Nov. 18.

Fantasia Hilliard (12.7 ppg, 4.8 apg) and Hallie Gennett (12.4 ppg, 2.9 3FGM), are the only two Hornets to average double figures, but Sacramento State's constant line-up changes see six other players averaging between 10 and six points per game.

Sacramento State won this season's first meeting, 73-67, at Reese Court back on Jan. 17. Once the Big Sky's hottest team, the Hornets currently sit in third place with four weeks remaining.

EWU is 11-9 all-time against Sacramento State away from home but has won four of the last five encounters in Sacramento.
