POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) Tomas Sanchez capped a career-high 22-point performance with a game-winning jumper with 4 seconds left, lifting Idaho State to a 60-59 victory over Sacramento State on Thursday night.
Sacramento State led 59-56 after John Dickson's layup with 21 seconds to play. Sanchez's layup made it 59-58 before the Hornets' Julian Demalleville was fouled and missed the front end of a one-and-one. Sanchez grabbed the rebound with 9 seconds left and drained the jumper at the other end.
Sanchez was 8 of 16 from the field, including 4 of 8 from 3-point range, for the Bengals (4-12, 3-4 Big Sky). Chris Hansen added 15 points and Melvin Morgan had 11.
Dickson, who came in averaging a team-leading 13.9 points per game, had 19 for the Hornets (8-7, 3-4), and Mikh McKinney chipped in 14.
Idaho State trailed by as many as 10 in the second half before rallying for the win.
The Portland Trail Blazers are setting the bar high for NBA Halloween.
Maurice Harkless made his arrival in style turning a corner dressed as Tyrone Biggums from the American sketch comedy television series "Chapelle's Show."
But it got better. Bosnia native and seven-footer Jusuf Nurkic turned the corner as Beast from Walt Disney's classic romance film Beauty and the Beast.
The bar has been set.
Washington looks for its first win tonight after falling to 0-2 right out of the gate, while Portland aims for a 3-0 start after defeating the Spurs 121-108 Saturday night.

On June 7 in Las Vegas, Jay Beagle was in a Capitals uniform as they hoisted their first Stanley Cup in franchise history. Three weeks later, the 33-year-old signed a four-year, $12-million contract with the Vancouver Canucks.
The Capitals begin a four-game, Canadian road trip this evening in Vancouver. Beagle did not attend the Capitals ring ceremony at the Palm three weeks ago so the Caps awarded Beagle with his ring today.
Each ring contains 252 diamonds, 35 rubies and one sapphire. Beagle was impressed but isn't sure how much use the ring will get.
“Not sure I’ll wear it again. It’s like wearing my truck.”
Jay Beagle will not be on the ice tonight against his former team. Beagle broke his forearm when he blocked a shot against the Florida Panthers on October 13th. Beagle is expected to be sidelined for another five weeks.
Despite the injury, it has still been a great week for Beagle.
A shiny, new ring AND a baby girl. Not too shabby.
