Eastern Washington Eagles
COMING UP: Saturday vs. S. Utah, 2:05 p.m.; Monday at Portland St., 7:35
OUTLOOK: Thanks to a thrilling overtime win last weekend at Northern Arizona, the eighth-place Eagles are still in the hunt for a berth in the seven-team Big Sky postseason tournament. Saturday’s opponent, third-place Southern Utah, must play Thursday at Portland State while Eastern gets another two days of healing time for leading scorer and rebounder Venky Jois, who’s been out for almost two weeks with an ankle injury. Jois is expected to play at least part of Saturday’s game, coach Jim Hayford said. On Monday, the Eagles visit last-place Portland State for a chance to add a second straight road win following last week’s win at NAU.
