Ok Eagle’s Fans, its time to consider and select your EWU Eagle Eye Player of the Week for February 21st to February 27th, 2012.  Here are the candidates I think best helped their team compete in victory over the Bengals and close defeat to the Vikings:

Keep reading after the jump:

Cliff Colimon (#11) who combined for 40 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, and 2 steals.  Colimon led the Eagles in scoring in both games and contributed solid efforts on the glass, but Colimon’s also contributed by forcing the other teams players to foul him.  Cliff shot 18 free throws between the two games and made 13 of them.

Laron Griffin (#15) yes he extended his ignominious stretch of games fouling out to 6, and 13 on the season, but in the time he played Laron scored 26 pts including a season high 15 against Idaho State and amassed 16 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 assists.  Griffin also got himself to the free throw line 18 times in these games and hit 8 of them.

Laron Griffin (#15) had his best two
game stretch of the year

Tremayne Johnson (#20) who filled in when the other forwards got in foul trouble, scored 18 points and added 10 rebounds and 1 block while being called for only 3 personal fouls combined.  Tremayne also shot 75% from the free throw line, including 5 of 6 in the final 33 seconds against the Idaho State Bengals.  Tremayne’s calm and poised shooting enabled the Eagles to not only win that game, but in doing so they also clinched a berth in the Big Sky Conference tournament.


Added from the comments section:

Cliff Ederaine (#42) 'Big' Cliff picked up a ton of slack running the offense against Idaho State. In two games Cliff scored 17 pts, had 12 rebounds, 7 assists, 4 blocks and 3 steals. Big Cliff may not have been the most prolific scorer this week, but his steady presence helped keep the Eagles competitive in both games and ultimately helped them qualify for a post season berth.

Head to the comments section and let me know which of the Eagles you think most deserves to be recognized as the EWU Eagle Eye Player of the Week.  Check out the past honorees to get a feel for the contributions that have earned recognition.
