Eagles are one win away from NCAAs

Good morning from Missoula, where the Eastern Washington men's team are getting a lot of respect after their 91-83 win over Sacramento State in the Big Sky Conference semifinals. Here's another report, from Dave Cook at Eastern, who also provided a video from the postgame press conference. ... Up next is host Montana, which beat NAU in a game that will be remembered more for what happened after the buzzer. The winner advances to the NCAA Tournament. ...The Eastern women weren't as fortunate, failing to hold up to a tough crowd and an even tougher Montana defense. ... I also have a notebook from the tournaments.
