Eagles, Harvey knocked off their perches - statistically speaking

Only a week ago, Eastern Washington was penciled in as a 13 seed in the NCAA Tournament and Eagle guard Tyler Harvey was the leading scorer in the nation.

But following the Eagles' 90-77 loss last weekend at Sacramento State, bracketologist Joe Lunardi of ESPN erased the Eagles from his bracket and installed Sac State as a 16 seed. Meanwhile, Harvey - the NCAA's leading scorer for the past three weeks - is now No. 2 behind Denzel Livingston of Incarnate Word. Which isn't the final word, by the way: we have at least six more weeks of hoops to play.

The Eagles fared a bit better in two other measures: They dropped only one spot in this week's mid-major poll and actually moved up a spot in the weekly RPI.
