He will sign autographs after the game.

This would have been his senior year with the Eagles. Stuckey, a native of Kent, Wash., played his freshman and sophomore seasons at Eastern. He averaged 24 points per game each season. After being academically ineligible coming out of high school, Stuckey attained a 3.34 grade point average at the Cheney school.
