COTTONWOOD 68, RIVERTON 60: Brendan Guzman drained four shots from behind the arc en route to 20 points as he led Cottonwood to the upset victory over Riverton. Austin Simmons added 15 points to the Colts' cause while Stephan Holm led the Silverwolves with a game-high 27 points in the loss.

HIGHLAND 63, FREMONT 32: After a closely contested first quarter, Highland limited Fremont to 22 points the remaining three quarters for the easy win. David Divver guided the charge for the Rams offensively, scoring 19 points. Henry Morris and Jake Connor teamed up for 22 points in the win.

EAST 69, MURRAY 61: Parker Van Dyke went off to the tune of 30 points, and East dominated with a 12-4 overtime run that left Murray in the dust. Chase Topham led the Murray rally with 17 points in the loss.

WOODS CROSS 56, ROY 55: Woods Cross' Hayden Grant hit two sets of 1-and-1 opportunities to tie the game, then following a made bucket by Roy, connected on a jumper from the key with 49 second to even the score once again.

NORTHRIDGE 65, JORDAN 63: Dallas Bond, Preston Christensen and Jacob Bigler all scored in double digits for Northridge as the Knights held off the Beetdiggers for the big win. Four players reached double figures in the first loss of the year for Jordan.

SPANISH FORK 72, BEAR RIVER 66: Ty Henry led Spanish Fork to victory with 26 points, including six baskets from downtown. Rhees Benson chipped in 13 points for the Dons.

PINE VIEW 68, CHINLE, ARIZ. 64: Dallin Milne loaded up for 28 points, nine of which came from distance, and Chaz Petersen and Kody Wilstead scored 13 apiece to lead Pine View. The Panthers erased an early 10-point deficit in the first quarter and chipped away at the free-throw line, knocking down 16-of-22 attempts.

BRIGHTON 59, SKYLINE 26: Brighton held Skyline under double digits all four quarters, including three points in the second, for the runaway win. Braxton Miller had a game-high 20 points and eight other Bengals pitched in offensively.

LAYTON 74, GRANGER 20: Layton cruised to a victory over Granger behind Mike Hibbert who had a game-high 13 points. The Lancers started hot thanks to stingy defense and were able to continue with their success with a very balanced scoring attack.

SIERRA VISTA, NEV. 64, CANYON VIEW 58: In the final minutes, Canyon View was able to cut Sierra Vista's 12-point lead to six points but it was too little, too late. The Falcons were led by Brady Barrett who scored a game-high 15 points in the loss.

DAVIS 60, BINGHAM 56: Despite inconsistent free throw shooting in the final couple minutes, the Darts hung on for a hard-fought road victory over a gritty Bingham team to improve to 5-0 this preseason. Abel Porter and Jesse Wade each connected on four 3-pointers, finished with 19 and 15 points respectively. Braden Koelliker added 13 points and came up with a key steal and block in the final 15 seconds.

COPPER HILLS 48, KEARNS 40: Trailing entering the final quarter, Copper Hills exploded for a 22-point fourth to top Kearns at home. Porter Hawkins, Darius Maluia and Danny Martinez all reached double figures scoring for the Grizzlies.
