Eastern men open at home


The Eastern Washington men’s basketball team will open their 2013-14 season Sunday versus Pacific University of Forest Grove, Ore., Sunday, Nov. 10 at Reese Court.

Tipoff is 2:05 p.m. for the Eagles who return four starters and seven letterwinners from a team that finished 10-21 overall and just missed the Big Sky Conference Tournament with a 7-13 league mark.

Among the returnees are Big Sky Conference Freshman of the Year, Venky Jois.

“We are eager to see how we stack up against outside competition,” Eastern head coach Jim Hayford said.

The Boxers are a NCAA Division III team from the Northwest Conference. Last year, Pacific was 15-10 overall and 9-7 in league play.
