The Axe may fall on Lumberjacks

It was a busy weekend in the Big Sky, on and off the court, highlighted in Cheney by a nice 69-52 win for EWU over Montana State. Here's my story on the game.

The Eagles travel to Northern Arizona for  a Thursday game against an NAU team that fell into a last-place tie after getting trounced 77-43 at Sacramento State.

The Lumberjacks have lost six straight; worse they may have violated numerous NCAA rules under former coach Mike Adras, who resigned suddenly on Dec. 6.

A NEW CAT IN TOWN - Idaho State pulled the biggest upset for far in the conference, knocking off first-place Weber State on a last-second 3-pointer. The Bengals, picked for last place by the coaches in their preseason poll, is the only conference rival that EWU hasn't faced yet. The Eagles play at Idaho State on Feb. 23, then finish the regular season against the Bengals at home on Feb. 28.

GRIZ TIED FOR FIRST - The biggest winner in Idaho State's upset may be Montana, which took two on the road and moved into a first-place tie with Weber State. If the Griz can win out, including a home game with the Wildcats in the regular-season finale on Feb. 28.
