Texas Southern will have an early tip to the 2014-15 season

CHENEY, Wash. (AP) - Eastern Washington has decided to play its first game of the season early, real early.
    
The Eagles will host Texas Southern on Nov. 14, and tip-off is at 8 a.m. Pacific, 10 a.m. Central.
    
Coach Jim Hayford says his team is eager to start the season, so they decided not to wait until evening to play the game.
    
The game was originally scheduled for 6 p.m., and Texas Southern agreed to the switch.
    
The move allows Eastern Washington to host the first NCAA Division I game of the season, and to have the game regionally broadcast.
