As Woods Cross’ starting point guard last year, Hunsaker led the 'Cats into the 4A semifinals. Playing against his old teammates for the first time since transferring to Orem, he scored 13 points and finished with a career-high nine assists.
Region 5 No. 1 seed Mountain Crest beat Hillcrest 44-37 early in the day as Tyler Crosbie and Famafili Laulu-Pututau each scored 13 points.
Crosbie’s clutch 3-pointer late in the game gave the Mustangs a 38-35 lead, a lead they would never relinquish. For Crosbie, he’s the latest Crosbie in the family wreath making a name for himself.
Region had the best showing of the day with a 3-1 record. Region 6 and 8 teams went 2-2, with Region 5 only advancing one team into the quarterfinals.
