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.
