EWU game notes: Baldwin blames himself for loss

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – After he praised his players, Eastern Washington coach Beau Baldwin took most of the blame for the Eagles’ stunning 28-27 loss to Northern Arizona on Saturday. “That loss is on me,” Baldwin said during the emotional moments following one of the most bizarre endings in recent Eastern football history.

Northern Arizona stuns Eastern Washington in final minute

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – Picking up the pieces? That will have to wait another day. After their shocking 28-27 Big Sky Conference loss to Northern Arizona on Saturday afternoon, the Eastern Washington players and coaches could barely pick themselves off the turf.

Eagles tackle altitude, Lumberjacks

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – After another close game, the Eastern Washington football team could use a breather today. It probably won’t happen. Not against a Northern Arizona team that has a good chance to return to the FCS playoffs, and certainly not in the thin air of Flagstaff, elevation 7,000 feet.

Eagles take on upset-minded NAU

After another close game, the Eastern Washington football team could use a breather today (Saturday). It probably won’t happen. Not against a Northern Arizona team that has a good chance to return to the FCS playoffs, and certainly not in the thin air of Flagstaff, elevation 7,000 feet.

EWU shoots down NAU

Four corners: Eastern Washington Eagles

COMING UP: Tonight vs. Sacramento State, 6; Saturday vs. Northern Arizona, 2 p.m. OUTLOOK: Despite a road breakthrough at Montana State last week, the Eagles (11-13 overall, 5-7 Big Sky) must defend home court against two teams ahead of them. And defending home court could come down to defending the 3-point shot. First up is Sac State (10-11, 6-6), one of the Sky’s better long-range shooting teams (37.6 percent) and the best at defending against it (conference opponents are shooting 33.7 percent). On Saturday, it’s NAU (10-12, 7-5) easily the league’s best 3-point shooting team (42.9 percent). The Eagles foes are shooting 34 percent from the arc.

Northern Arizona blasts Eastern Washington 84-65

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – Quinton Upshur contributed a season-high 26 points and Northern Arizona remained atop the Big Sky Conference in drubbing Eastern Washington 84-65 on Thursday night. Northern Arizona (7-9, 4-1) finished the first half with a 9-3 run, taking a 36-27 lead into the break in what was otherwise a tightly contested period.

Four corners: Eastern Washington Eagles

COMING UP: Tonight at Northern Arizona, 6:05; Saturday at Sacramento State, 7:05 p.m. OUTLOOK: After winning two at home, the Eagles hope to steal one on the road. The Eagles (6-8 overall, 2-2 Big Sky) face a Lumberjacks team that’s coming off a 70-36 win at Southern Utah. NAU (6-9, 3-1) is shooting 52 percent from the field. The Eagles rank 23rd in Division I with 8.5 3-pointers made per game. At Sacramento State (5-8, 1-3), the Eagles may get some of their own medicine from Hornets guard Dylan Garrity, who ranks 11th in the nation in 3-point accuracy at 47.2 percent. Eastern backup forward Ognjen Miljkovic is practicing this week as he recovers from a high ankle sprain.

EWU defense sculpts a beauty

Beau Baldwin didn’t need to flip through a thesaurus to come up with a word to describe the offensive performance of his Eastern Washington University football team Saturday. The Eagles’ head coach kept it simple, and went with “ugly.”
