Predict winners of 10 high school basketball state tournaments by entering the Deseret News Hoops Picks contest.
The winner of each contest receives a $50 Amazon gift card courtesy of Snelgrove Travel in Layton.
You must create an account at DeseretNews.com to participate. You can also change your selections as many times as you want up until a contest closes, so if the outcome of a play-in game in 5A, 4A or 1A doesn’t go as you’d expected you still have time to change your first-round picks.
Here is a rundown of all the starting and closing times of all 10 contests:
1A Girls: Now open, closes on Wednesday at 9 a.m.
2A Girls: Now open, closes on Friday at 9 a.m.
3A Girls: Now open, closes Friday at 7 p.m.
