MISSOULA, Mont. -

Concerns about the Grizzly basketball team only grew as Montana fell on the road to Eastern Wsahington 69-62 Thursday night in Cheney, Washington.

Martin Seiferth posted a double-double of 21 points and 12 rebounds while Tyler Harvey registered a game-high 25 points to lead the Eagles.

Keron DeShields had a team-high 17 points off the bench for Montana.  Jordan Gregory (13) and Kareem Jamar (10) were the only other Grizzlies to post double-digits in scoring.

The Grizzlies (1-2, 6-6) held a second half lead 33-32 less than two minutes into the second half but the Eagles jumped right back on top via a Harvey three-pointer and Eastern (1-2, 6-8) never relinquished the lead after that.

Montana senior, and defending Big Sky Conference MVP, Kareem Jamar was limited to a season-low 24 minutes due to foul trouble.

The Grizzlies’ next contest will be a road game at Portland State on Saturday night, Jan. 11.
