Within striking distance

With conference play nearing its end, the USU Eastern mens basketball team is praying for a Cinderella-story ending. Facing down conference opponents: Snow, SLCC, NIC and CSI in the past two weeks proved to be quite the mess.
With starting guards Miles Gatewood and Mike Stroud, both suffering injuries, the Eagles made the best out of what they were given. With bench players being thrown into starting positions, they took the opportunity to show their skills.

From Brazil to Price, America: all for the love of the game

Millions of people from throughout the world want to come to the states for many different reasons, but Price is rarely their preferred destination. However, this year the USU Eastern women’s basketball team had the opportunity to have three foreigners join their team. Isabella Costa, Gabriella Borges and Larissa Quintana came a long way from their home country of Brazil to play the game they love.

Hay ‘n’ Tray THROWDOWN

This week Travon and I will be discussing four topics about the NBA All-Star Weekend and debating on the best performances from each of the topics throughout the past 20 years. The five topics will be: best All-Star game, best dunk in the dunk contest, best three-point shooting performance, and we will also discuss this year’s participants and those who we feel got left off the teams, but were deserving to be there.

What was the best All-Star game ever?

It is no “stretch” to believe that Perkins belongs here

One of USU Eastern’s stars is Jeff Perkins. He brings height and passion to the team. He is a very hard worker and contributes to the team every day.
Everybody knows him as the crazy, hyper and funny guy. Perkins is always singing or dancing; he is the class clown everywhere he goes. But on the court, he is aggressive and takes the game seriously.
Perkins was born in Seattle, Wash. He says that one of his favorite childhood memories is playing basketball in his friend’s backyard. They would leave the hoop at seven feet so they could all dunk on each other.

Back in action

 It must be spring because the USU Eastern Eagles are back in action for the 2013 baseball season. The snow is melting and the players are back outside on the field where they opened their season in Yuma, Ari., last weekend, dropping all four games. 
Head Coach Scott Madsen stated, «I feel this season is going to be a positive one for the players.  They are a good group of men that work well together. «

Eagles finally coming home

The USU Eastern’s Women’s Basketball team went 1-3 on their four-game road trip these past two weeks.
They started off their road trip beating Snow 68-53. As always, Eastern played some lockdown defense, causing 22 turnovers. Eastern was able to make 23 points off of Snow’s turnovers alone. They played a consistent game, maintaining their lead the entire second half.

Youngest students on campus

Some people may think that the youngest students at USU Eastern are probably 18 or 17 years old, but that is not true. Located in the West Instructional Building are the youngest students on campus. These students range from about 2 ½ to 5 years old. They are preschool students and they attend school at USU Eastern.

The Three Musketeers – in duels or dangerous missions: all for one and one for all

A classic story is on the agenda for this week’s book review. I can safely assume that most readers know about “The Three Musketeers” by Alexandre Dumas.
We’ve heard about the daring d’Artagnan and his friends: Athos, Porthos and Aramis who live by the standard “all for one, and one for all.” But how much do you know about the adventures and romance that started in this first book of the D’Artagnan Romances?

True love found in a chicken joint

I have seen few examples of true love in my life. I have seen lust portrayed as love. I have seen love being one sided and have seen love used in a negative way. Every time I get down and think that love couldn’t possibly exist, I think of a couple I met in South Korea in 2004.

The Nighthawk Review

The Nighthawk Review, USU Eastern’s literary magazine, has enjoyed a long run as a place for students to publish and share their creative writing and this year is no different.
The magazine, which collects short stories, poems, and plays written by USU Eastern students, is published once a year in the spring and is currently accepting submissions. The magazine is edited by students under the guidance of Dr. Jason Olsen, faculty advisor.

The long journey to USU Eastern for Greg Dart

Getting 4,000 students makes Greg Dart invaluable to recruitment at USU Eastern. He was appointed the Director of Enrollment Services last summer.
Dart is from Alaska, although he graduated from Mountain View High School in Utah. In high school, he learned to develop his ideas and put them into words and action as he got involved with the school newspaper and student government.
