Shoot! Eagles can’t; lose again

Eastern Washington men's basketball coach Kirk Earlywine was probably wondering how his team would respond following last Saturday's 91-34 loss to Brigham Young.

In any event, he found out Tuesday evening, when the cold-shooting Eagles were upset by lowly Chicago State in the opening round of the Las Vegas Classic.  You can read the game story that appeared in Wednesday morning's S-R here, and access what EWU's sports information department posted about the game here.

The Eagles play again at noon today against winless Jackson State, and we will post details of the game as soon as they become available.
