Coming up: Tonight at Montana State, 6:05; Saturday at Montana, 6:05 p.m.
Outlook: The Eagles (9-12 overall, 4-6 Big Sky Conference) are coming off a big home win over Northern Colorado and already own wins over UM and MSU. However, EWU is still looking for its first road win of the year. Guard Tyler Harvey is still the league scoring leader (23.2 ppg) after a 38-point outing against UNC. Tonight, the Eagles will face an MSU defense that ranks third in the league at 67.8 ppg. Two nights later, the Grizzlies (10-9 overall, 5-5 Big Sky) will try to get a better effort from defending Big Sky MVP Kareem Jamar (19.2 ppg), whose early foul trouble was a big factor in a 69-62 EWU victory last month in Cheney.
