POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) Mikh McKinney scored 24 points and added five assists to lead Sacramento State to a 62-59 victory over Idaho State on Thursday night.

Eric Stuteville added 11 points on an efficient 5-of-7 shooting from the field for the Hornets (12-6, 5-1 Big Sky), who have won seven of their last eight games, four of which have come by five points or less.

Jeffrey Solarin scored 16 points to lead Idaho State (4-15, 1-6), which has lost four straight and 10 out of 11.
