COMING UP: Tonight vs. North Dakota, 6:05 p.m.; Saturday vs. Northern Colorado, 2:05 p.m.
OUTLOOK: The Eagles are coming off a loss Monday at Portland State in which they gave up 62 second-half points, and things get no easier this week in what is arguably the toughest home stand of the season. First up is North Dakota (8-10, 5-3), which is coming off a big win over Northern Arizona. Job one for the Eagles is to contain UND guard Troy Huff, who torched them for 34 points on his last visit to Cheney and is averaging 16.5 ppg this season. On Saturday, co-leader Northern Colorado comes to Reese Court with the highest-scoring (78.1 ppg) and most accurate (52.7 percent) offense in the conference. @SRJimAllen
