CHENEY, Wash. (AP) - Tyler Harvey scored 22 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished out eight assists in leading Eastern Washington to a 77-69 win over Idaho State on Thursday night.

Parker Kelly contributed 16 points and Martin Seiferth added 14 points and ten rebounds for the Eagles, who shot 47 percent from the floor and blocked 10 Bengal shots.

Eastern Washington (15-15, 10-9 Big Sky) took a commanding 37-23 lead into intermission.

Idaho State (11-17, 8-11) got to within five points, 43-38, early in the second period before Harvey’s pair of 3-pointers helped the Eagles amass a 13-point lead which was enough to keep the Bengals at bay until the buzzer.

Andre Hatchett scored 20 points for the Bengals, who shot only 34 percent but stayed in the game by winning the offensive rebound battle 23-11.

EWU remains tied for fifth in the conference with one regular season game against Portland State remaining.
