Eastern Washington Disappoints Against Washington State

Everyone was ready and willing to anoint Eastern Washington as the second best team in the Big Sky and the top challenger to Weber State. Then Saturday happened.

The Eagles went to Pullman to take on a mediocre Washington State squad and got hammered 75-49. EWU shot 25% from the field, while the Cougars shot 50%, thoroughly dominating all phases of the game.

“They were very well prepared for us,” said Hayford. “Our defense wasn’t good – they shot 50 percent. Our offense wasn’t good – we made 25 percent. And they beat us up on the boards. We forced turnovers, but we just laid an egg and I’m really, really disappointed.”
Collin Chiverton led the team with 12 points, but was just 3/11 from the field. After really playing solidly in every game this season (win or lose), this is not one they will look back fondly on.

They will get a little bit of a break, as they take on Linfield on December 8th.

  1. Chiverton is the most selfish player I've seen play in over 20'years of watching the Eagles. Not a team player at all. They will be lucky to finish fourth with him.
