Eastern falls flat in Big Sky opener


There's something missing in Cheney. It's hard to figure, but there has to be something.

Because games like Thursday night are causing Eagle fans everywhere to pull out their hair. Playing at home, where it hasn't lost all season, against a Montana State squad that came in with a 3-10 record, in the Big Sky Conference opener for goodness sakes, Eastern found a way to lose.

Lose a game it probably should have won.

So the Eagles (6-7, 0-1) should be focused Saturday night against Montana (7:05; 1050-AM), right? We'll see.

Here's correspondent Jason Shoot's game story.
