Dick Harmon: Local high school basketball standouts turning heads across the nation
Next Saturday, many of these local players will be in action against each other when Holt's defending 4A state champion Orem team, with Hunsaker and BYU-bound Dalton Nixon, will take on defending 5A champion Lone Peak in the second year of the Great Western Shootout at Orem High. Go to greatwesternshootout.com for more information.
"The game will be at 5 p.m., right before the BYU-Utah game. It will give Cougar fans an opportunity to see future players in action at one place and time before going to that game in the Marriott Center," Holt said.
This tournament also includes Basha High (Ariz.), Bountiful, Denver East (Colo.), South Sevier, Foothill (Nev.) and West Jordan.
