Gross AWOL as Eags prepare for ISU

Good afternoon.

I have links to several items concerning EWU’s men’s basketball team, which entertains Big Sky Conference rival Idaho State at 7:05 tonight at Reese Court.

The Eagles will be without Trey Gross, whose whereabouts are still a mystery to EWU coach Kirk Earlywine after the sophomore guard did not return to school following Christmas break.  You can read more here.

In addition, I’ve included this link to a feature story on Eastern’s junior point guard and Big Sky scoring leader Benny Valentine, who overcame some legal problems en route to Cheney.

Read on.
