Eags stun MSU on the road

Since taking over the Eastern Washington University men’s basketball program almost three years ago, Kirk Earlywine has labeled several of the Eagles’ victories “huge,” or “big.”

And considering the state of EWU basketball when he took over, he was spot on with his assessments.

But on Sunday afternoon, in Bozeman, Mont., the Eagles hung up a Big Sky Conference road win that probably surpasses any in Earlywine’s short tenure by upsetting Montana State 75-73 on a late bucket by freshman guard Glen Dean.

You can read what EWU’s sports information department had to say about the win here.  And be sure to express any thoughts you might have on what this victory might mean to the Eagles’ chances of making the BSC Tournament here, as well.
