EWU men beat NAU, the morning after

Good morning from Reno, where I slept in till 9 a.m. for the first time since .... the night before. I blame the Big Sky Confererence, which had the Eagles play in the 8 p.m. game. I didn't get back to my hotel until 11:30, and of course I was hungry - and that banana split looked so good. Some of the Eagles were at the same restaurant, celebrating their first-round win over Northern Arizona. Here's my game story on the Eagles, who play Idaho in the quarterfinals on Thursday - at 8 p.m. - whaddya gonna do? Meanwhile, the Eastern women face high-scoring Sacramento State today. Here's my preview of the game, along with a feature on EWU coach Wendy Schuller. .... Want more on the Big Sky Tournament? Here's a link to the official conference web site.
