Eastern's youth will be called upon in big way
Senior-less Eagles are experienced
If Eastern Washington University men’s basketball coach Jim Hayford was going to realize his goal in year-three of getting his team to the Big Sky Conference tournament he’ll do it under some less than normal circumstances.
Hayford’s Eagles would, for one, reach the postseason without a single senior, and his team would enter conference play tonight at Weber State having played the Big Sky’s most rugged schedule.
“I have never coached a team without seniors,” Hayford said. “I have always said your team is as good as your seniors are, but we don’t have any seniors.”
