What to Know
The Eastern Washington Eagles will take on the Northridge Matadors at 5 p.m. ET on Friday at Matadome. The Eagles should still be riding high after a win, while Northridge will be looking to right the ship.
The sound you heard on Monday was the absolute smackdown Eastern Washington laid on the Walla Walla Wolves.
Meanwhile, the game between Northridge and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish this past Saturday was not particularly close, with Northridge falling 68-52. Guard Atin Wright (12 points) was the top scorer for Northridge.
Eastern Washington’s victory brought them up to 1-2 while the Matadors’ defeat pulled them down to 0-2. Two last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Eagles are 16th worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 70.4 on average. But Northridge is stumbling into the contest with the 355th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 72.1 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
