Eastern Washington University took a 52-51 lead early in the second half and was within one with 10 minutes to play, but it was all Seattle after that as the Redhawks rolled over the Eagles 91-78 in a non-conference college men’s basketball game Monday (Jan. 16) at Key Arena in Seattle, Wash.It was just Seattle's fourth win of the season, so it's easy to see this as a bad loss for the Eagles, but I am not sure it is too big of a deal.
For one, they were playing their third road game in five days, which has to wear on a team, especially one without a ton of depth. Second, it has to be a bit tougher to get up for a non-conference game in the middle of the conference season, especially after losing the way they did on Saturday.
Obviously you would always rather win than lose, but beyond that, I am not sure this is cause for much concern in Cheney.
