Eastern Washington Falls to Seattle

I am getting a link up a bit late, but Eastern Washington lost last night to Seattle by the score of 91-78.

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.

  1. I agree that this is not a loss Eastern should be too concerned about... Seattle was able to shoot way better then they have at any point this season, not to mention career games from two of their players.

    The only thing that worried me was the lack of boards that EWU was able to grab. But like you said, three road games in five games can lead to tired legs...

    Three home games should be a breath of fresh air for this team, and exactly what they need.
