A day of rest was on the agenda first, then preparations began for the rematch of one of the most exciting games the Eagles played in the 2008-09 season.
Eastern played three games in four nights to start the season, closing that stretch with a fast-paced 100-88 victory over Whitman on Tuesday (Nov. 17). The Eagles took the next day off, then began preparations for this Saturday's (Nov. 21) game at Texas Arlington, which will be the fourth game in eight days for the Eagles. Tipoff Saturday is 5 p.m. Pacific time in a game carried via radio in the Spokane area on 1050-AM.
"We played Washington State on Monday so we couldn't take Sunday off," said Eagle head coach Kirk Earlywine. "So (Wednesday) was our day off. We have Thursday and Friday to prepare for Texas Arlington, then we'll go down there and try to get ready.
"It was a very welcome day off," he added. Eastern returns to Reese Court on Nov. 24 to face Boise State at 7:05 p.m. at Reese Court in Cheney, Wash.
Texas Arlington is 1-1 after defeating Dallas Baptist 88-84 and losing to North Texas 101-99 in double overtime. Marquez Haynes, who averaged 16.5 points a year ago, is averaging 29.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists thus far.
"They are a perimeter-oriented team -- their guards are a major factor in the game and they want to play fast," said Earlywine. "They want to get up-and-down the floor."
Last year Eastern defeated Texas Arlington 73-70 at home in a game that featured 12 ties and 18 lead changes. Current seniors Benny Valentine led the way with 28 points and Brandon Moore had a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds in that game. Haynes scored 15 against the Eagles.
"A lot of our personnel has changed and their personnel has changed," Earlywine said. "But Haynes is back and he's awfully good, but we need him to be a volume shooter. He's going to get his points, but we need to make him take a lot of shots to get them and we can't put him on the free throw line."
Eastern opened the season with a 64-58 loss to Portland on Saturday (Nov. 14). The Eagles lost by just six points despite making only 32 percent from the field (15-of-47), allowing Portland to make 7-of-13 three-pointers and getting out-rebounded 37-24.
"I liked our shots -- we just didn't make them," said Earlywine. "It's hard to win when you compound getting out-rebounded with giving up 54 percent from the arc and pile on top of that shooting 32 percent. Really, it's surprising that we were in the game with a chance."
The Eagles followed that with a 67-61 loss at Pacific 10 Conference member Washington State. The Eagles, who had a 17-9 lead early in the game, rallied with a 15-5 run late in the game to pull within one at 62-61 with 1:04 left. But the Cougars sandwiched a three-pointer and two free throws in the final 44 seconds around an Eagle turnover to score the final five points of the game.
The following night in a 100-88 helter-skelter victory over NCAA Division III Whitman College, Eastern made 50 percent of its shots from the field, had a 54-35 rebounding advantage and scored 56 points inside the paint. However, EWU finished with 30 turnovers to come one away from the school record of 31 against Washington in 1995. The game included 49 total turnovers, 56 total fouls (30 by Whitman) and 79 total free throws.
"There wasn't a whole lot we could take out of that game," said Earlywine. "It was not a style we're going to see again, and we aren't going to play against 6-3, 6-4 post players again. In some ways, I've put that game out of my mind. I didn't watch the tape and I'm not going to watch the tape."
Eastern played that game without injured player Kevin Winford (concussion) and Matthew Brunell (sprained ankle). Winford is questionable for this Saturday's game and Brunell is doubtful.
Boise State is 2-1 thus far, defeating Loyola Marymount (90-87) and North Dakota (75-60), but losing on the road at Montana (95-82).

Brandon Moore Has Back-to-Back Double-Doubles in Split -- Senior 6-foot-9 center Brandon Moore had the seventh and eighth double-doubles of his career en route to having a combined 29 points and 32 rebounds in a roughly 26-hour span. He had 10 points and 13 rebounds in a 67-61 loss to Washington State on Nov. 16, then had 19 points and 19 rebounds the next night in a 100-88 win over Whitman. Moore's 19 rebounds ranks as the third-best performance in recorded school history. His previous career high for rebounds was 14 versus Portland State on Feb. 28, 2009. He also tied his career-high with five blocked shots against the Missionaries, equaling the second-best recorded performance in school history. His 67 career blocked shots is third in school history and his 511 rebounds is now sixth.
Mark Dunn Hot Too -- Senior Mark Dunn had the two highest-scoring games in his Eastern career in back-to-back nights versus Washington State (Nov. 16) and Whitman (Nov. 17). He had 17 points versus the Cougars, making 7-of-9 shots from the field, including 3-of-4 three-point attempts. The next night he made 7-of-12 field goals and 7-of-8 free throws to finish with 21 points. His previous career high was 14 points in games against Montana and Weber State last season on his way to an average of 5.6 points per game as a 24-game starter. However, he made only 2-of-11 three-pointers in his previous 31 games as an Eagle. He helped lead Danville Area Junior College to a fourth-place finish at the NJCAA Division II National Tournament as a sophomore in the 2007-08 season. He averaged 5.5 points and 3.9 rebounds that season, with a season-high of 19. As a freshman, he averaged four points and four boards.
Hitting the Century Mark -- The Whitman game on Nov. 17 was the 61st time in school history that Eastern has scored 100 points in a game. The last time it happened came in a 100-85 victory over Sacramento State on Jan. 25, 2007, in which current Detroit Piston Rodney Stuckey scored 31 points. Eastern would have four 100-point performances that season and average 84.2 points per game as Stuckey finished his sophomore season with an average of 24.6 points per game.
Last Year's Game With UTA Was One of Season's High Points -- Junior guard Benny Valentine scored 28 points as the Eastern Washington University men's basketball team knocked off Texas Arlington 73-70 Nov. 22, 2008, at Reese Court in Cheney, Wash. The Mavericks were a NCAA Tournament participant in the 2007-08 season after winning the Southland Conference championship. They would go on to finish the 2008-09 season 16-14 overall and 9-7 in the Southland to finish third.
A potential game-tying three-point attempt by the Mavericks bounced off the front rim, hit the backboard, hit the front rim again and hung there for a second before falling out. The tight game saw the teams tie on 12 occasions and swap leads 18 times.
Valentine nailed 11-of-22 attempts from the floor and finished with four assists. Brandon Moore contributed a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds, and also had three steals. Both players are back for this week's meeting.
His performance against UTA would help Valentine earn Big Sky Conference Player of the Week honors after leading the Eagles to three-straight NCAA Division I victories in a six-day stretch. Eastern's 3-1 start was their best since the 2002-03 season.
Four players scored in double figures for UTA, including 15 points, five rebounds and two assists by Marquez Haynes. He went on to average 16.5 points and 5.1 rebounds, and is back this season. Tommy Moffitt scored 12 points and had nine rebounds, and Brandon Long chipped in 10 points -- both of those players are back as well. The team's top scorer from that game was senior Anthony Vereen, who had 19 points and 12 rebounds.
Last Year's Eastern-Boise State Game Was a Microcosm of the Season -- Struggling from both the field and from the free throw line, the Eastern Washington University men's basketball team fell to Boise State 57-48 Dec. 29, 2008, at Taco Bell Arena in Boise, Idaho, in EWU's final non-conference game before the resumption of Big Sky Conference play.
The Eagles made only 32 percent of their shots (19-of-60) from the field, and at one point in the first half missed 12-straight shots as the Broncos went on a 12-0 run to break an 11-all tie. Eastern, which also made only 6-of-14 free throws in the game for 42 percent, fell to 7-6 with their fourth loss in the five games.
Eastern would go on to make only 32.4 percent of their shots for the season. Eastern would finish 12-18 overall and 6-10 in the Big Sky, while the Broncos finished 19-13 overall and 9-7 in the Western Athletic Conference to finish third.
Junior Benny Valentine led the Eagles with 13 points, but suffered through a 5-of-16 shooting night. Junior center Brandon Moore chipped in 12 points and nine rebounds, but finished just 5-of-13 from the field and 2-of-8 from the line.
Eastern held Boise State to 41 percent shooting from the field, but that shooting edge and a 15-6 advantage from the line was enough for the Broncos to hold-off the Eagles. Eastern scored the final seven points of the game after falling behind by as many as 19 in the second half.
Eastern had a commanding 43-32 rebounding advantage, including 19 offensive rebounds that led to 15 second-chance points. But the Eagles had 15 turnovers as the Broncos held a 13-2 advantage in points off turnovers.
Senior Mark Sanchez had 14 points and 13 rebounds in BSU's win, but three other players returning for the 2009-10 season contributed to the victory. Six-foot-7 Paul Noonan scored 14 points on his way to averaging 10.0 points per game. Anthony Thomas had just two points but had six assists, and averaged 9.2 points and 4.1 assists for the year. Kurt Cunningham added seven points as the 6-9 center finished the season with averages of 10.0 points and 4.1 rebounds.
Schedule includes games with Washington State and Gonzaga -- Eastern's 2009-10 schedule is highlighted by non-conference games against Washington State and Gonzaga, as well as the earliest Big Sky Conference start in school history.
Eastern opens its league schedule on the early date of Dec. 5, giving the Eagles two exhibition games and seven non-conference games to prepare for league play. Among those seven games, Eastern hosts Portland on Nov. 14 and Boise State on Nov. 24, and plays road games at Washington State on Nov. 16 and Idaho on Nov. 28.
"I like our non-conference schedule and the fact we're not stuck on the road very long," Eastern head coach Kirk Earlywine said. "But November is very tough and we have to be ready right from the start."
Eastern plays at Portland State on Dec. 5 before resuming league play on Dec. 31 at home against Sacramento State. The other non-conference games for the Eagles include road games at Nevada (Dec.17), Brigham Young (Dec. 19) and Gonzaga (Dec. 28), as well as an appearance in the four-team Las Vegas Classic at the Orleans Arena on Dec. 22-23.
In addition, Eastern plays both at home (Dec. 12) and on the road (Feb. 1) against Seattle University, a newcomer in NCAA Division I in the 2008-09 season. Seattle defeated the Eagles in overtime last season, but the Eagles were able to edge both Portland (63-58) and Idaho (69-59) before both of those teams finished strong in the West Coast Conference and Western Athletic Conference, respectively.
"We have our hands full with our non-conference schedule, but that's always the case," Earlywine said. "Now that Portland and Idaho have elevated their programs in the last year, it makes our non-conference schedule that much tougher.
"Everything we do from now until December 5th will be pointing toward conference play," Earlywine continued. "We want to be peaked and ready for every conference game we play."
The Dec. 5 start to league play represents the earliest Big Sky opener in school history. Last year, the Eagles opened league play on Dec. 6 with a 61-55 home win over Montana State, and the previous season opened on Dec. 22 with a 58-57 home victory over Portland State.
"I've made my feelings pretty well known about playing the first conference game in early December," explained Earlywine. "But we've actually been ready to play that game the last two seasons. I shouldn't be too critical because we've won our opener each of the past two years."
Eastern is hoping its five senior letter winners and talented newcomers will help the Eagles earn their first Big Sky Conference Tournament berth in four seasons when that event takes place on March 6, 9 and 10. However, Earlywine expects several other league teams to feature even more returning starters and experience.
"The league is going to be very, very good," he said. "Top to bottom, it may be as good as it's been in the last 10 years. I told our team after our last game last season that our challenge was to go catch the other teams in the league. Nobody is backing up, so we have to go catch them. Our focus has been on doing what we have to do to improve and not count on other teams to stub their toe."
Earlywine has been in the Big Sky Conference for nearly 10 years now, dating back to 1999 when he became an assistant at Weber State. He knows the January to March grind in the league is difficult, but it's made even more difficult this season with the cost-saving measure of playing most weekend doubleheaders on Friday/Saturday instead of Thursday/Saturday.
"The travel difficulties haven't changed - we still have nine institutions spread over eight states," he said. "You go from sea level to altitude, and one time zone to another. It's tough."

RECENT GAME RECAPS
Eastern Survives for 100-88 Victory Over Whitman -- Seniors Benny Valentine, Mark Dunn and Brandon Moore combined for 63 points as Eastern Washington University held on for a 100-88 victory over Whitman College Nov. 17 at Reese Court in Cheney, Wash.
Valentine scored 23 points and had a career-high seven assists as he made 10-of-12 free throws. Dunn had a career-high 21 points, one night after scoring his previous high of 17 in a 67-61 loss at Washington State. He made 7-of-12 shots from the field and 7-of-8 from the line.
Moore had the eighth double-double of his career with 21 points and a career-high 19 rebounds, eclipsing his previous high board game of 14. He made 5-of-7 field goals and 9-of-12 free throws, and also equaled a career high with five blocks.
Eastern finished with 30 turnovers, coming one away from the school record of 31 against Washington in 1995. The game included 49 total turnovers, 56 total fouls (30 by Whitman) and 79 total free throws.
The Eagles made exactly 50 percent of their shots from the floor, but made only 2-of-15 three-point attempts. Eastern scored 56 points in the paint, sank 34-of-42 free throws and out-rebounded Whitman 54-35.
"It was good for us in terms of having our players in late-game situations where teams are trapping and going crazy," said Eastern head coach Kirk Earlywine, who was missing two players because of minor injuries suffered against WSU. "It would have been much better for us to have one day to prepare, but we had 45 minutes today. And we couldn't risk another injury."
"They play a style that is probably not conducive to Division I, but it's very effective at their level and for their team," he said of the NCAA Division III Missionaries. "When you don't have size and you are playing teams that do, you want to scramble the game. You want to make guys that aren't necessarily ball handlers handle the ball and pass the ball in awkward spots."
Eastern led from start to finish, and opened a 24-7 lead mid-way through the first half. Eastern led by 23 on two occasions before settling for a 49-30 halftime lead.
Although Whitman pulled to within 12 with 14:29 left in the game, Eastern never trailed by less than double digits the rest of the way. A 9-0 Eastern run gave the Eagles a 79-57 advantage with 6:18 to play.
Eastern had five total players in double figures, with freshman Jeffrey Forbes finishing with 11 points and three steals. Laron Griffin had 10 points, six rebounds and three assists, and Abebe Demissie made his Eagle debut with eight points, three rebounds and three assists.
Eagles Start and Finish Fast, But Fall to Cougars 67-61 -- Eastern used defense to open an early lead and an offensive burst to pull within one in the final minute, but Washington State was able to squeak out a 67-61 non-conference college basketball victory over the Eagles Nov. 16 at Friel Court in Pullman, Wash.
The Eagles rallied with a 15-5 run late in the game to pull within one at 62-61 with 1:04 left. But the Cougars sandwiched a three-pointer and two free throws in the final 44 seconds around an Eagle turnover to score the final five points of the game.
The Eagles and Cougars both made 42 percent of their shots in the game, but EWU had a 39-32 rebounding edge. Two days ago against Portland, Eastern was out-rebounded by 13.
"Our effort level defensively and rebounding was where it needed to be," said Eastern head coach Kirk Earlywine. "I told our team I was very disappointed right now that we let one get through our grasp that maybe we could have won. But I'm not discouraged at all -- I really like our team right now."
Eastern led in the first half 17-9, but an 11-0 Cougar run early in the second half helped WSU take command until the final minutes. Eastern had 14 turnovers in the game and the Cougars had a 20-10 advantage at the free throw line.
Eastern senior Mark Dunn led the Eagles with nine first-half points, and finished with a career-high 17 in the game. He made 7-of-9 shots from the field, including 3-of-4 three-point attempts, and also had six rebounds and three assists.
Senior Brandon Moore finished with a double-double with 10 points and 13 rebounds. Freshman point guard Glen Dean chipped in 13 points and three assists, and senior Benny Valentine added six assists.
Three Cougars combined to score 55 of their team's 67 points, including 24 by Clay Thompson, who made the crucial three-pointer with 44 seconds to play.
Eastern took an early 13-7 lead, holding WSU to just three field goals in the first 13:38, including a span of more than seven minutes when all WSU could score was four free throws. The Eagles led 17-9 with 8:37 left, but scored just eight points the rest of the half to fall behind 30-25 at intermission.
In the second half, Eastern trailed just 39-35 when the Cougars took command with an 11-0 run. Eastern went 4:44 without scoring as WSU took a 50-35 advantage.
Eastern still trailed 57-46 with 4 1/2 minutes to play before going on a furious 15-5 run to pull within a single point.
"Offensively our execution wasn't very good, particularly in the last six minutes of the first half, and we had nine turnovers in the first half," said Earlywine. "But we cleaned it up in the second half and had only five turnovers and had better shots."
KIRK EARLYWINE COMMENTS
On Highlights of First Three Games -- "The Portland and Washington State games reaffirmed in my mind that our freshmen are very competitive. They don't give in -- they don't take a step backwards and they keep coming. The conditioning level for Brandon Moore and Mark Dunn is way, way ahead of where it was a year ago. They really bought in over the summer and fall in taking care of their bodies and reducing their body fat. They are a little quicker and can play a little harder for longer stretches.
On Current Average of 18.0 Turnovers Per Game: "It's a daily emphasis for us to not give possessions away. We've done a good job of that the last two years and we have to continue to do that. It's going to be a little more difficult this year because of the number of players we are going to put on the floor who are new to Division I. We just have to continue to emphasize to them how important it is to take care of the ball."
On Brandon Moore's Senior Debut Against MSU-Billings: "I thought he played pretty well -- I didn't see signs of rust. He worked his butt off this past summer and spent a lot of time in the gym. He spent a lot of time working on his body, and it showed. When he got hurt and decided to do the surgery, he spent an extraordinary amount of time doing every aerobic activity under the sun that didn't involve his legs or his feet. It's a credit to him to stay in shape and minimize the amount of rust."
On Exhibition Wins: "The win or the loss isn't important to me in the exhibition games. I want to get tested -- I want our new players to come under fire and see how they react to stressful situations. So far, this group of newcomers have been outstanding in terms of their effort level, competitiveness and doing the same things in games as they do in practice. I couldn't be any happier with the new players."
Eastern 12-68 Versus the Pacific 10 Conference -- Following a 67-61 loss at Washington State on Nov. 16, 2009, the Eagles are now 11-52 in the all-time series against Washington State, to go along with a 1-10 record all-time against Washington. Eastern is 0-6 against other members of the Pacific 10 Conference, giving the Eagles a 12-68 record all-time against that league.
Eastern losses to Washington each of the previous six seasons (2003-2008), and has a current 10-game losing streak versus the Pac 10. Eastern lost at Washington 83-50 on Dec. 20, 2008, and the year prior, lost to Washington State 68-41 on Nov. 9, 2007, and Washington 82-68 on Nov. 18, 2007.
Eastern's win at Washington in the 2002-03 season snapped a five-game losing streak versus Pacific 10 Conference opponents dating back to Eastern's 83-82 overtime win versus Washington State on Dec. 22, 1997, in Kennewick, Wash. That victory over WSU was Eastern's first-ever victory over a Pacific 8 or Pacific 10 Conference opponent since the inception of the conference in 1968. It was also Eastern's first win over Washington State since Dec. 1, 1952, when the Eagles pulled out a 72-71 overtime win in Pullman. The Cougars had led the all-time series 49-10 and had won 17-straight games over the Eagles prior to that EWU victory.
Eastern's lone victory over the Huskies was 62-58 in December 2002. Washington won the previous four meetings which all took place between 1990 and 1997.
Other recent meetings against the Pac 10 have yielded losses to Oregon (100-74 on Dec. 15, 2006), Arizona (79-45 on Dec. 28, 2004), California (56-27 on Nov. 16, 2001 and 94-63 on Nov. 25, 1998), Oregon State (58-50 on Dec. 19, 2000 and 78-62 on Dec. 15, 1999) and Washington State (91-72 on Dec. 5, 1998).
EWU in Exhibitions -- Until falling 58-56 to
Carroll College on Nov. 1, 2008, Eastern had won its last 12
exhibition games, which are contests that do not count in EWU's
season record or statistics. Before that setback, EWU's last
exhibition loss came on Nov. 13, 1999, to the Northwest Basketball
Camp (NBC) Thunder. In that 73-71 loss, former Pepperdine player
Shann Ferch made a three-point play with 19 seconds to lift NBC to
the win. Here is a list of recent exhibition games:
11/8/09 - Montana State-Billings - W, 67-58
11/1/09 - Saint Martin's - W, 98-61
11/8/08 - Puget Sound - W, 90-66
11/1/08 - Carroll - L, 56-58
11/3/07 - Pacific - W, 91-49
11/4/06 - Northwest Nazarene - W, 98-55
11/13/05 - UC-San Diego - W, 75-44
11/13/04 - Central Washington - W, 79-63
11/12/03 - Ukraine Touring Team - W, 83-55
