SPOKANE, Wash. — The Eastern Washington Eags received a 14 seed in the NCAA Tournament on Saturday. They will take on Kansas in their first game.

The game will be played next Saturday at 10:15 am PT on TBS.

Kansas has had COVID-19 issues within their program the past week, forcing them to withdraw from the Big 12 Tournament, so that's something to keep an eye on as the week progresses.

The Eags have gone to the NCAA Tournament two other times. They received a No. 13 seed in 2015 and fell to Georgetown and in 2004 they were a No. 15 seed and fell to Oklahoma State.

The Eags secured a bid to the NCAA Tournament by beating Montana State 65-55 in the Big Sky Tournament Championship on Saturday.
