Good Morning Eagles Fans!  Its the first Monday of the off season for the Eagles Basketball program, but that won’t stop us from scouring the web for Eagle news and stories.  Before we get onto our tour, I want to ask for your help during the off season.  If there is anything you want me to investigate and post on please let me know, in the comments, by email or on twitter @EWUEagleEye.  I’ll do my best to keep the posts coming and I have some ideas, plans and good intentions, but don’t hesitate to give me any suggestions or thoughts as well.

Now onto our tour after the break: is our first stop this morning where they have a season wrap up, “I’m really, really proud of our players, and proud of the season we had,” said Hayford. “We advanced Eastern Basketball further than it had in a long time, and that’s what I want our players to hang their hat on.”  They also offered a look at the Eastern Women’s season, "We have a pretty special group of seniors that have left quite a mark on this program," said Head Coach Wendy Schuller. "Those three individuals will never be forgotten because of the contributions they have made, not only as individuals, but because of where they took this team. They carried us to new heights and really set a new standard for Eagle basketball."  And finally they offer a profile of the EWU March Scholar Athletes: Brianne Ryan and Steven Warner.

Our second stop is where Jon lets us know that Weber State has been selected to play  in the post season tournament.  He also covers Portland State’s final game of the season, a 94-83 loss to the University of Seattle Redhawks.

For our third stop, we head over to where Brandon brings us up to date on proposed improvements to Reese Court.  He also posted a profile of Coach Hayford’s first season as the Eagles Head Coach.

Eastern 24/7 is our fourth stop, where Brian Lynn reports that EWU is teaming with Harvard to bring a new course to their MBA program.

Finally, be sure to check out our recap of the Eagles Semi-Final loss to Montana.
