Let the scoreboard watching begin. Well, let it continue, since we do it all the time. Eastern wasn't playing last night, but was more than an interested bystander as the rest of the Big Sky Conference was in action. And while EWU's next opponent, Weber State, and Montana clinched first-round byes last night in the Big Sky Tournament, the rest of the six-team field is unsettled. In fact it's downright unsettling, expecially if your name is Montana State.
This morning, the conference stadings look like this. The Bobcats have lost four straight, while Sacramento State, winless in the conference just 12 days ago, is suddenly in the race:
Here are today's Standings
|Weber State *||11-1||0.917||19-4||13-0||5-4||W3|
Overall, this had to a good night for the Eagles, who are now in a tie for third place in the loss column. And while there's that tough game tomorrow night at Weber, the Eagles can take heart in the fact that next up is Northern Colorado, now saddled with a three-game losing streak. Two of Eastern's last three games are against Idaho State, which pulled off a shocker two weeks ago over Weber State but has since dropped a pair.
