Coming up: Eastern Washington Eagles


RECORD: 8-8 overall, 2-2 Big Sky

COMING UP: Tonight at Sacramento State, 7:05; Saturday at Northern Colorado, 4:05 p.m.; Monday at Seattle University, 7:10 p.m.

OUTLOOK: There will be tougher road trips: Sacramento State is 0-3 in the conference, 5-9 overall and ranked 337th – that’s seventh from the bottom – in the RPI rankings. Northern Colorado (2-1, 5-9) presents a bigger challenge with a conference-best 45 percent shooting average in 3-pointers. EWU (45th in RPI) is led by senior guard Cliff Colimon’s 22 points (second in the Big Sky) and five assists per game, and the best turnover margin in the conference. The Eagles’ biggest worry may be the stress fracture in the left foot of leading scorer Collin Chiverton.
