Whitworth University has had plenty of chances in the past five years to measure its NCAA Division III men’s basketball program against the best in the country. It got another one Sunday afternoon, when Washington (Mo.) University, a team that won back-to-back national titles in 2008 and 2009, invaded Whitworth Fieldhouse.

Whitworth University has had plenty of chances in the past five years to measure its NCAA Division III men’s basketball program against the best in the country. It got another one Sunday afternoon, when Washington (Mo.) University, a team that won back-to-back national titles in 2008 and 2009, invaded Whitworth Fieldhouse. And the 12th-ranked Pirates once again proved more than worthy of keeping proper company with the D-III elites by slapping a 88-66 loss on the Bears in front of a crowd of 680.

Eastern Washington’s 2011 college football season – once filled with so much promise – will come to an earlier-than-anticipated close this afternoon when the Eagles take on Idaho State in a Big Sky Conference game that kicks off at 3 in Holt Arena in Pocatello. Eastern, after last year’s run to an NCAA Division I championship, was thought to have enough returning talent to make another deep playoff run, and opened the season ranked No. 1 among FCS schools.

East Valley’s girls soccer team made history last fall by advancing to the semifinals of the State 2A tournament for the first time. And now that they’re back in the Final Four, the Knights are ready to make more history, according to coach Gabe Escobar.

Eastern Washington University will get back to trying to defend the pass – make that many passes – when it travels to Pocatello on Saturday to take on Big Sky Conference rival Idaho State in its season finale. Despite its yearlong struggles, ISU (2-8 overall, 1-6 Big Sky) has proven it can move the ball through the air. The biggest factor in the Bengals’ passing game has been junior wide receiver Rodrick Rumble, who has caught a school-record 98 passes for 1,224 yards and nine touchdowns.

Washington State University’s women’s soccer team has been here before – just a little more than two months ago, in fact. But coach Matt Potter’s team hasn’t done what its hopes to do Friday, when it takes on host and eighth- ranked Virginia at Klockner Stadium in Charlottesville, Va., in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Jim Hayford is quick to admit he still doesn’t have a great read on his Eastern Washington University men’s basketball team. That’s why he was also quick to admit he had some troubling questions about how his Eagles would respond in their home opener against the University of South Dakota – especially in the wake of Friday night’s emotional season-opening loss at Gonzaga.

Collin Chiverton scored 25 points and coach Jim Hayford earned his first win at Eastern Washington, a 70-61 victory over South Dakota on Tuesday night.

There was a time, much earlier this fall, when tonight’s nonconference college football matchup between defending NCAA Division I national champion Eastern Washington University and future Big Sky Conference member Cal Poly – which will join the league as a football-only member next fall – might have been worth circling on the calendar. But that was before both teams had their hopes of making the 2011 Football Championship Subdivision playoffs ravaged by injuries.

Matt Potter believes if a soccer player is good enough, she’s old enough – no matter how young she might be. That’s why Washington State University’s ninth-year head coach had no problem throwing Ali Fenter into his starting lineup shortly after she arrived on campus four years ago, even though she was just a freshman.

Jim Hayford isn’t having any problem with the product he’s trying to sell as a first-year Division I men’s basketball coach. His players at Eastern Washington University are buying into his new system in a big way, and have been since he was introduced last March as the successor to Kirk Earlywine, who was fired after going 42-78 in four seasons in Cheney.

Eastern Washington’s defense has dealt with its share of option offenses this fall. But the one the Eagles (4-5) will face in Saturday’s 6 p.m. nonconference game against Cal Poly (5-4) in San Luis Obispo, Calif., is a whole different animal than the popular “pistol” variety used by many teams.

Top-ranked and unbeaten Coeur d’Alene got the kind of high school football game it has been looking for all season in Friday night’s quarterfinals of the Idaho 5A state playoffs. Visiting Mountain View throttled CdA’s high-octane offense for most of the first half and forced the Vikings to reach a little deeper than they had previously in racing past nine straight opponents and claiming another Inland Empire League title.
