Eastern blows early lead, up by 2 at half

Eastern Washington looked sharp in building an early 17-9 lead in its non-conference matchup against UC Davis at Reese Court Sunday afternoon.

But shortly after Cliff Ederaine scored his 11th point less than 7 minutes into the game, the Eagles' offense flatlined, letting the Aggies to storm back to take a brief 24-23 lead.

Still, Eastern managed to regain a slim 31-29 advantage at intermission, thanks to a 3-pointer by Kevin Winford and a pair of free throws by Collin Chiverton in the final 3 minutes of the opening period.

Ederaine finished the first half with 12 points  and three rebounds, but no other Eagle scored more than seven.

UC Davis got eight first-half points from Josh Richart, and outrebounded Eastern 15-12.
