Eags announce 2009-10 basketball schedule

Eastern Washington University will officially open its 2009-10 men's basketball season at home against Portland on Nov. 14, following a pair of home exhibition games against Saint Martin's (Nov.1) and Montana State-Billings (Nov. 8).

As part of cost-cutting moves implemented by the Big Sky Conference, the majority of league games will be played on Friday and Saturday nights instead of the customary Thursday and Saturday night's, thus saving schools that are traveling on lodging and food.

You can get more details on Eastern's schedule here, along with Coach Kirk Earlywine's thoughts on playing league games on back-to-back nights.  And feel free to leave any opinioin you might have here.
