Big Sky Championship games close to home

Senior night for the Eagles wasn't actually Senior Night. With their victory over Idaho State, they clinched the right to host a Big Sky quarterfinal game this Saturday.

Senior night at Reese Court turned out to be only the beginning.

Seniors Cliff Colimon and Laron Griffin had career nights to lead Eastern Washington University to a 77-64 victory over Idaho State in the final Big Sky Conference regular season men's basketball game of the year for both teams Tuesday (Feb. 28) at Reese Court in Cheney, Wash.

The victory clinched the No. 4 seed in the Big Sky Conference Tournament for the Eagles, who finished the regular season 8-8 in the Big Sky and 14-16 overall. The victory means the Eagles will host the Bengals this Saturday (March 3) at 2:05 p.m. Pacific time at Reese Court in a quarterfinal game of the tournament.

Another good bit of info. With Montana defeating Weber State last night, the bulk of the Big Sky Tournament will be played down in Missoula meaning if the Eagles make it to the Semis, they'll be playing just an hour and 20 minutes south of me.

Soooo close...
