Portland had its last lead of the game at 10-7 on an inside basket by Jamie Jones, who finished with eight points and a career high 14 rebounds. Eastern Washington Michael Taylor answered moments later with a 3-pointer, then Stuckey followed with another 3-pointer to give the Eagles the lead for good at 13-10.
Eastern Washington (5-4) widened its lead to 45-23 at halftime, thanks to a 21-6 run in the final 6 minutes of the half. Portland then scored five of the first six points in the second half but Eastern responded with 12 straight to make the score 58-28.
That run included a 3-pointer and two assists by Stuckey. For the game, the Eagles hit 12 of 23 3-pointers, a 52 percent clip. Overall from the field, Eagles hit 53 percent of their attempts.
