Eastern Washington Eagles
Eastern Washington Eagles are on a roll winning their last three games. North Dakota Fighting Hawks, Multnomah Lions and Nebraska Omaha Mavericks each fell into the Eagles nest and got beaten. But this time they will be visiting the giants Gonzaga on their home floor. It would be interesting to see how Jacob Davidson, Kim Aiken and Mason Peating will fare up against a team like the Bulldogs. Aiken has been the double-double threat for the Eagles imposing his will on both ends of the floor. He averages 16.1 points, 11.8 rebounds, 1.9 steals and almost a block per game.
Davidson is the team’s top scorer with 18.1 points and he also gives the ball handlers a hard time with 2 steals per game. Peating is the third man of the team with 15.7 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists. Those three players will come out and play but if the Eagles would like to make a difference, they have to dig in deep to their role players to make an impact.
Players to watch:

Starting this season, Killian Tillie has been on the radars of NBA scouts and he is projected to go middle of the first round of the 2020 NBA Draft. So far, so good but other players are making a mark on the Bulldogs roster like Filip Petrusev and Corey Kispert who both benefitted after Tillie missed five games. Petrusev is the team’s top scorer and rebounder with 16.2 points and 8.1 rebounds while swatting 1.5 shots per night. Kispert added 15 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists. He is also one of the team’s best three-point shooter at 43.6%.
On the other hand, Tillie is returning but he has yet to find his groove doing averages of 12.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2 assists and 1.3 steals. Gonzaga boasts a good three-point shooting team that allows them to spread the floor and expect that in their game against the Eagles.
Players to watch:
F. Petrusev F (13 GP 26.7 MIN 16.2 PTS 8.1 REB 0.9 AST 0.5 STL 1.5 BLK 2.2 TO 52.4 FG% 68.8 FT% 12.5 3P%), C. Kispert F (13 GP 33.1 MIN 15 PTS 4.2 REB 1.7 AST 0.6 STL 0.2 BLK 1.7 TO 52.3 FG% 79.3 FT% 43.6 3P%), K. Tillie F (8 GP 22.8 MIN 12.3 PTS 4.8 REB 2 AST 1.3 STL 0.4 BLK 0.8 TO 46.8 FG% 68.4 FT% 36.1 3P%).
