Weber’s coach believes that if you removed Lone Peak from the 5A equation this year, you could play the state tournament four times and you’d crown four different champions.
After winning the Region 1 title for the first time in 17 years, Larsen believes his team is a contender, but his focus is on West.
“There’s only going to be four teams that play Lone Peak, if you start worrying about Lone Peak you’re going to get knocked out in the quarters or the first round,” said Larsen.
For those who venture to the Dee Events Center this week to watch the greatest show on court, don’t be late. Lone Peak overwhelms teams early.
In 10 Region 4 games this season, Lone Peak’s average lead after the first quarter was 20-8 and its average lead by halftime was 39-18. Don’t expect that trend to change, either, with so much on the line.
The Knights’ strength of schedule is ranked second in the country according to USA Today, and should they take care of business at Weber State this week, it’s hard to imagine them falling from MaxPreps’ No. 1 perch.
And before each game this week, you can bet Lewis will remind his players, “you have to win a state championship to win a national championship.”
