The Eastern Washington Eagles will meet with the Washington State in NIT – 1st Round action in Wallis Beasley Performing Arts Coliseum, Washington, on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, at 11:00 PM ET.


For much of the season, Eastern Washington led the Big Sky, but after 3 consecutive losses coming into this game, the team’s confidence and momentum are on the decline.


It would be interesting to watch how they approach this game after their upsetting loss to Northern Arizona in the conference playoffs.


It will be difficult for them to move past the humiliation they suffered at the hands of the Cougars in November, and the fact that they are traveling for the rematch just puts additional pressure on this team.


With a 9-6 record in real road games this season, the Eagles underperformed away from home, so perhaps expecting too much of a club that stumbled late in the season.


Even though Eastern Washington has great numbers on both sides of the ball this season despite playing against a weak schedule, there are still plenty of questions going into this game.


They play at one of the fastest tempos in NCAA basketball and rank 56th in scoring and field goal efficiency.


Although it couldn’t be any worse, they will fancy their prospects of at least improving on the first encounter due to good rebounding as well.


Although Steele Venters (15.3 ppg) was the team’s top scorer, they have many other scoring options thanks to their three (and almost four) other double-figure scorers.


  • The Eastern Washington Eagles are 13-6-1 ATS in their last 20 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Eastern Washington’s last 5 matches.
  • The Eastern Washington Eagles are 17-3 SU in their last 20 matches.

Eastern Washington Eagles vs Washington State Cougars Predictions 3/14/2023


Even though Washington State ended barely over.500 despite their season-long struggles with consistency, they will be optimistic about their prospects in this one.


They utterly crushed this contest last November, and they ought to be very confident in their ability to defeat their regional competitors.


Washington State had an outstanding home record this year, sitting with a 10-3 mark, and they also had an outstanding season end.


Although it was against the weaker opponents on their schedule, they won seven straight games until narrowly falling to Oregon in the PAC 12 Tournament.


Although Washington State’s metrics aren’t as strong as those of their rivals, their preparation for this tournament was probably strengthened by a more demanding schedule.


While they enjoy dragging out games and slowing down opponents, their defense is still top-notch. Despite having the nation’s 53rd-best scoring defense, they will need a strong performance from the frontcourt in this game.


One of the top frontcourt players in the PAC 12, Mouhamed Gueye (14.3 ppg, 8.4 rpg), will dominate this game.


In this game, Washington State has more size and depth than the Eagles, so anything short of a victory will be a huge letdown.


  • The Washington State Cougars are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Washington State’s last 6 matches.
  • The Washington State Cougars are 7-1 SU in their last 8 matches.

Eastern Washington Eagles vs Washington State Cougars. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Washington State Cougars. Much like when these two teams originally played in November, the Cougars will dominate this game.


With three straight losses under their belts and a size disadvantage that was already apparent in the first encounter, the Eagles’ confidence is at an all-time low.


For Washington State, who was playing some of the finest basketball in the PAC 12 over the past month, this is a fantastic opportunity as they look ahead to the upcoming campaign.


This is a typical instance when one side is probably unhappy and another is likely delighted, giving the Cougars a huge advantage to complete the season sweep.


Also, according to covers.com, Washington State is 4-0 ATS in their previous four home matches versus teams with winning road records, and they are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games overall.


The Washington State Cougars will win to a predicted score of 82-70.
