Despite hot start, Golden Eagles keep focus on improving team play
While the opposing teams like Impact Academy and the Salt Lake All-Stars may not instill fear into the USU Eastern men's basketball team, each game plays an important role in determining how the team will do this season.
USU Eastern men's head coach Adjalma Becheli knows his team has plenty of talent. But he also realizes the grind that is ahead of the Golden Eagles as Scenic West Athletic Conference play looms in the distance.
"We know we're very capable of scoring a lot this year," said Becheli. "There is still a long ways to go for this team and our focus needs to be on improving and working better as a team each and every week."
The Golden Eagles (6-0) will look to continue their hot start to the new season as they are scheduled to host the Salt Lake All-Stars on Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday at 3 p.m. at the BDAC.
"These games are really helpful in building the confidence of our players," he said. "We need to remember that there are no gimmes on the schedule for us."
