Cheney, Wash. – Winners of three straight, the Eastern Washington University women's basketball team will go a for a weekend sweep Saturday afternoon, Feb. 14, when it takes on Dam Cup rival Portland State at 2 p.m. PT in a Big Sky Conference game in Portland, Ore.

Eastern (14-8, 7-4 BSC) enters Saturday's game on the heels of a thrilling come-from-behind win over Sacramento State last Thursday. The Eagles held the Hornets to 1-of-7 from the field over the final two minutes, using key baskets from sophomore Jade Redmon and junior Hayley Hodgins, along with crucial defensive plays from freshman Delaney Hodgins and senior Melissa Williams, to emerge victorious.

Hayley Hodgins finished with her first career double-double on Thursday, recording a game-high 27 points and 10 rebounds while playing 39 of a possible 40 minutes.

Portland State (3-20, 1-11 BSC) has lost its last eight games heading into Saturday's tilt. The Vikings are 2-9 at home on the season, and its lone league win came in the Stott Center against North Dakota back on Jan. 10.

Emily Easom (14.0 ppg, 2.5 rpg) and Mikaela Rivard (10.8 ppg, 3.5 rpg) are the only Portland State players to average double figures. The Vikings are allowing opponents to shoot 43.9 percent from the field while giving up 74.6 points per game.

EWU won this season's first meeting, 101-54, at Reese Court back on Jan. 15. The Eagles shot a program-record 68 percent from the field against the Vikings, en route to scoring 101 points, the most in regulation since it scored 105 points, also against PSU, on Dec. 11, 1987.

Eastern is 11-15 all-time against the Vikings in Portland.
