Northern Colorado Vs. Eastern Washington Preview: Bears And Eagles Clash In Critical Big Sky Game

Wednesday's game is huge for Northern Colorado's postseason hopes.

Wednesday night's Big Sky battle between Northern Colorado and Eastern Washington is crucial for the postseason hopes of both teams. Only six teams get to play in the Big Sky conference tournament and thus get a shot at an NCAA tournament berth. At 5-7 in league play, Eastern Washington sits in sixth place, while UNC is seventh with a 5-8 record. And with just two games separating third place from seventh place, there's plenty up for grabs in what has become a mad scramble.

Turnover margin will be critical in this one for UNC -- the Bears have been incredibly turnover-prone this season, while Eastern Washington takes pretty good care of the ball in general. UNC is the vastly superior shooting team -- the Bears lead the nation in three-point field goal percentage -- so if they can avoid a big turnover deficit, they'll have a chance to earn a big road win.

Game Date & Time: Wednesday, Feb. 15, 7:05 p.m. MT
