I almost thought that Friday night was going to be my last basketball game of the season. I wasn't planning on going down to Cleveland to catch a game and it was looking like Eastern would have to travel somewhere for the opening game. Well it turned out that they got the 8th seed by virtue of both Northern Illinois and Bowling Green losing. I'm not sure how all of the tiebreakers work out, but Eastern came out on top.
As always, these are pictures from the game but not actually of the game. If you want to see pictures of the game, go to Hustle Belt.
They'll get to face the #1 Seed of Akron in Cleveland tomorrow. I wish them the best.
