EWU’s Hunt, Peatling, Davison named
to All-Big Sky hoops team
A trio of Eastern Washington men’s basketball players were selected to the All-Big Sky Conference team announced Tuesday by the league office.
Senior Jesse Hunt and junior Mason Peatling earned honors on the second team as two of the top big men in the league. Sophomore guard Jacob Davison earned third team accolades despite missing the last seven games of the league season because of an ankle injury.
Peatling had a 15.3 scoring average to rank seventh in the Big Sky in league games only, with Hunt averaging 13.9 to rank 12th. Hunt was also second in rebounding with an average of 9.5 boards per game. Peatling was fourth with a 7.2 average, and Hunt was eighth in the league in assists with a 3.6 average. Overall, Hunt leads the league in rebounding (8.9 per game) and ranks in the top 10 in scoring (14.6) and assists (3.3) with a league-high 12 double-doubles.
Until he suffered an ankle injury on Feb. 16 and forcing him to miss the last seven games, Davison had been the hottest Eagle, averaging 23.8 points in his last eight outings since scoring 11 versus Montana on Jan. 10. He had the seventh-most points in school history with 41 versus Northern Arizona on Feb. 4, and has averages of 15.2 points on the season and a team-leading 18.5 in league play. He would have ranked fifth in the Big Sky if he had played enough of EWU’s games to qualify (75 percent).
