COMING UP: Today vs. Northern Colorado, 6 p.m.; Saturday vs. North Dakota, 2 p.m.
OUTLOOK: With four games left and the Eagles still on the outside looking in for a spot in the Big Sky tournament, they need to win these last two home games plus a road game next week to stay in the hunt. Eastern will likely be without senior point guard Kevin Winford (compartment syndrome), but freshman Tyler Harvey has stepped up while forward Venky Jois is nearly 100 percent from a knee injury. The Eagles have won two of their last three, while Northern Colorado (7-10 Big Sky) is coming off two narrow losses. North Dakota (9-8) features high-scoring Troy Huff (19.3 ppg).
