The Northern Colorado Bears welcome the Eastern Washington Eagles to town in Big Sky college basketball on Monday.

The Eastern Washington Eagles fell to 1-2 in the Big Sky after Thursday’s 74-71 loss at Idaho as a 2.5 point road favorite.

Eastern Washington fell behind by 20 points at the break before a huge rally ran out of time with the Vandals holding a 50%-40.7% shooting advantage.

The balanced Eagles offense received 17 points, six boards and four helpers from Mason Peatling with Jesse Hunt adding 14 points, six boards and three helpers.

Ty Gibson gave EWU eleven points while Cody Benzel and Jacob Davison tossed in ten points and eight points respectively.

The Northern Colorado Bears ran their conference record to 3-0 following an 82-79 OT victory against visiting Idaho as a 15 point favorite on Saturday.

Northern Colorado was outshot 49.2%-43.9% and really struggled at the charity stripe with only a 14-29 performance which almost cost the team a win.

Jordan Davis saved the Bears as he led all scorers with 29 points, nine rebounds and five helpers while Bodie Hume added 12 points and six boards.

Trent Harris gave Northern Colorado eleven  points followed by Jonah Radebaugh and Cole Bergan with eight and seven points and a combined nine assists.

Eastern Washington  are 1-10 ATS in their last 11 road games and Eastern Washington are 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games overall. Northern Colorado are 3-10-1 ATS in their last 14 Monday games and over is 18-7-2 in Northern Colorado last 27 home games. Underdog is 12-5 ATS in the last 17 meetings.

I think Eastern Washington is a bit better then their record but I still don’t like this all that much…

Pick:
Eastern Washington +10.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
