Big Sky Conference Mens Basketball Line up January 16

Idaho State (2-3, 4-13) @ Portland State (2-3, 8-9) Tip off at 7:05pm pst. 
Both the Vikings and the Bengals come into this match fresh off of conference wins.  The Bengals escaped Sacramento State with a win 68 to 67, on the strength of Senior Guard Kenny McGowan’s 4 point play (that’s a 3 point shot plus a free throw).  Portland State shot 62% from the field including 62% from beyond the arc to earn their first road victory of the season at Northern Colorado on Thursday night.  The Vikings travel to Cheney for a match up with the Eagles on Saturday, while the Bengals host Northern Arizona on Saturday.

Eastern Washington (3-3, 9-9) @ Seattle University (3-12) Tip off at 7:10pm pst.
In a non-conference battle for Washington State bragging rights, the Eagles take on the upstart Redhawks who are looking to get out of a deep losing streak and finish the season strong before joining the WAC for the 2012-13 season.  The Eagles will look to bounce back from their last game an exciting, but ultimately losing effort against the UNC Bears 70-71.

The rest of the conference is enjoying the night off.
