Big week for Eagles…

…and almost everyone else in the Big Sky Conference (sorry, NAU). The Eagles get three games in six days, including two against Idaho State and one at Portland State. So where will the Eags wind up in the postseason? It's way too complicated, but if they can at least win two of these next three, it's a good bet the Eagles will host a first-round conference playoff game on March 3.

If they win just one, and they're almost certain to repeat the trip to either Pocatello or Portland.

AROUND THE BIG SKY - Montana's Kareem Jamar was honored as the Big Conference player of the week after recording the league's first trip-double in 12 years…the Griz are getting national team recognition as well, as they head toward a showdown with Weber State on Feb. 28…meanwhile, Sacramento State simply must win out just to have a shot at the sixth and final sport in the tournament.
