It's time to party! EWU is headed to the tournament! Well... the Big Sky Conference tournament, but at least the Eagles have looked much-improved this year with first-year head coach Jim Hayford.
POCATELLO— Tremayne Johnson scored five of his seven points on the night during the final 33 seconds, converting 5 of 6 free throws, to secure Eastern Washington’s 85-78 win over Idaho State.
The win ensured a Big Sky playoff berth for the Eagles (13-15, 7-7) and puts them in a position to garner a home game during the first round.
Now if Montana can take care of business, the BSC tourney might be held in Missoula meaning I will be making the trip south to watch some Eagle basketball. I hate to say it but I will actually be rooting for the Griz.
