High school boys basketball: Wasatch completes turnaround, finishes second in Region 10
Murdock was fouled on the ensuing Wasatch possession and sank a pair of freebies to put the Wasps back up by four. Union would have one last-ditch effort with six seconds on the clock, but had another turnover. This time, an errant pass trying to find an open Cougar for a 3-pointer-flew out of bounds giving the ball back to Wasatch.
Senior Johnson would score for Wasatch on a breakaway layup as time expired in the Wasps' six-point win.
Next, Wasatch will get a home playoff game, which in itself is a victory after the team's 2-9 start to the season and 3-9 record at the end of the preseason. The Wasps will host Region 9's No. 3 seed next Friday.
