Opportunity awaits for Eagles

After a tough loss at Weber State, it's time for Eastern Washington to move on.

Just one look at the Big Sky Conference men's basketball standings (below) underscores the importance of Eastern's home game Wednesday night against Northern Colorado. A win would put the Eagles two games ahead in the loss column over UNC.

It's a big night for other schools. Montana State is on a five-game losing streak and plays host to Weber. Another loss and the Bobcats will fall a game behind the Eagles in the loss column. And remember, EWU swept the Bobcats this season.
