Headed up to Sacramento State for their game against Weber State.
Normally I wouldn't be sent to cover a Sac State game. But since they were playing Weber State who happens to have the NCAA's leading scorer Damian Lillard, they figured it was worth covering.
It worked out great because after having a Kings game the night before I was able to stay with my parents in Vacaville instead of having to drive to Sacramento and back two days in a row =)
Though Damian Lillard didn't match his average, he definitely proved he knows how to get to the basket and draw fouls and had a significantly better game than he did when Jorge Gutierrez was guarding him at Cal (blog post here)
But as with any leading scorer, there has to be a complement to him, and that complement is Scott Bamforth, who while Sac State was double covering Lillard was able to be second leading scorer.
Sac State put up a great effort but wasn't able to defeat Weber State as they came up with 75-60 win.
