Lady Eagles ready to run-and-gun to success


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Those in the community looking to attend home games to watch USU Eastern women may need to have their eyes checked because they may see nothing but a blur.

That's precisely what the USU Eastern women's basketball team is looking to do this season with a fast-paced offense that emphasizes firing a shot, preferably a three-pointer, within 10 to 12 seconds each possession.

With a number of shooters on the team this season, the Lady Eagles are hoping to keep teams off balance by trying to run-and-gun them out of the gymnasium.

In their first two games of the 2013-14 season, the Lady Eagles averaged 47 3-point attempts per game, connecting on 23 percent over the weekend at a tournament in Arizona.

The Lady Eagles went 1-1 at the tournament, defeating Chandler-Gilbert 86-77 on Nov. 1 before falling to Eastern Arizona 89-75 on Nov. 2.

Larissa Quintana averaged 12 points per game over the two games to help lead the Lady Eagles.

The Lady Eagles will travel to Salt Lake City on Nov. 7 to participate in the Salt Lake Invitational.
