Notes & quotes: EWU center Jacob Wiley, who began his career at Montana, finished three assists shy of a triple-double in the win over the Cats. He finished with 25 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists. ... Felix Von Hofe made five 3-pointers and added 19 points. ... The Eagles feature a UN starting lineup -- two players from Australia, one from Serbia and one from the Ukraine. ... The Griz will be shooting for a road sweep after splitting their first two home games. ... "I think we needed this win (against Idaho) to make up for the loss at home," Griz coach Travis DeCuire said. "Saturday is just as important because of that to try to gain some momentum on the road. If you're going to compete at the top of the league you're going to have to get some sweeps on the road."

Up next: Montana hosts Northern Colorado next Thursday. Eastern Washington travels to Idaho State the same night.
