Jimmy White scored 19 points as Sacramento State won its first Big Sky Conference road game by defeating Northern Arizona, 85-81, in double overtime Saturday at Flagstaff, Ariz.

It ended a 49-game losing streak over seven years of road conference games for the Hornets, who are 6-8 overall and 1-1 in the conference.
