The players said their team’s versatility and speed has been a handful for opposing defenses.

It’s a style they said has been a lot of fun to orchestrate.

“They have to focus on another guy. They’re going to focus on him or I every single night, so one of us is going to open something up. That’s helped a lot for our team,” said Curtis, senior guard/forward.

“It’s really fun. We get to run the floor. It feels like we run out the other team. They get tired, and we keep running to get easy lay-ups,” said Mercier, sophomore forward.

The Eagles are scheduled to visit Presque Isle and host Caribou on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.
