Cheney, Washington, is a town of roughly 11,000 tucked into the Pacific Northwest. Eastern Washington University is located there.
Last year, Eastern Washington star Tyler Harvey (22.9 points per game) led the nation in scoring, and then the Orlando Magic selected the 6-foot-4 guard from Torrance, California, in the second round of the 2015 NBA draft. It was a great story, both for EWU and the Big Sky. The spotlight on Eastern Washington grew after its nonconference win over Indiana.
