CHENEY, WASHINGTON -

Forward Martin Seiferth and guard Tyler Harvey combined for 46 points to lead the Eastern Washington Eagles to a 69-62 victory over the visiting University of Montana Grizzlies in a Big Sky Conference game Thursday evening in EWU's Reese Court.

The Grizzlies (1-2 BSC/6-6 overall) took their first lead of the game at 33-32 on a jumper by sophomore center Andy Martin with 18:30 left in the game, but the Eagles jumped back to a 35-33 advantage on a 3-pointer by Harvey, a sophomore. After that, the Grizzlies tied the game up for the first and only time at 35-all on a lay-up by junior guard Jordan Gregory with 17:00 remaining to play.

Montana stayed with-in striking distance in the second half, cutting the Eagles' lead to five points on three different occasions, and the last time the Griz did that the score was 63-58 with 2:51 to go, when senior guard/forward Kareem Jamar made the second of two free throw attempts.

Harvey scored a game-high 25 points, while Seiferth, a 6-10 junior, added 21 points and pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds, and sophomore forward Venky Jois added 14 points.

Junior guard Keron DeShields did not start for the first time this season, but scored a team-high 17 points on 8-of-15 shooting from the field and he played 33 minutes. Gregory added 13 points and Jamar scored 10 points – his 12th game of the season in double figures. True freshman guard Mario Dunn had his first career start and finished with 6 points.

Jamar was in early foul trouble and picked up his third personal with 19:31 left to play, and was limited to a season-low 24 minutes. Jamar's 10 points give him 1,330 for his career, moving him up to ninth all-time, as he passed former center Ken McKenzie (1,321 points, 1973-75).

Junior forward Mike Weisner scored 5 points in 21 minutes of action, and was ejected from the game with 10:27 to go when he was whistled for a flagrant foul.

The Grizzlies continue their Big Sky schedule on the road, playing the Portland State Vikings on Saturday, Jan. 11, in an 8:05 p.m. game. PSU lost 79-76 to Montana State at home this evening.
