Many athletes might be wary about wearing No. 13, but not Bountiful High's Jeff Pollard. The Braves' non-superstitious big man scored a game-high 17 points — on Friday the 13th, no less — to help pace his team to a 56-50 victory over American Fork.
“I think really, without the defense we played tonight, we couldn't have capitalized on offense and gotten as many points as we got. I mean, defensively, we stopped 'em. Defense leads to offense.”
Jeff Pollard, Bountiful junior forward
