A win-win for Eagles, fans

Eastern Washington's rousing Senior Night win last night over Idaho State (check out Dan Pelle's great photo essay here) was not only a big win for the program and first-year head coach Jim Hayford, it means that fans will get one more chance to see seniors Cliff Colimon, Laron Griffin, Cliff Ederaine and Tremayne Johnson. The tip-off for the quarterfinal against ISU is at 2 p.m. Saturday at Reese Court, and tickets may be obtained at or by calling 1-800-325-7328.         

And if they win that game, the Eagles and fans will get much shorter trip to the Big Sky semifinals, thanks to Montana's victory the same night over Weber State. Now the game will be in Missoula. Here's the link for tickets at the University of Montana.
