Last week was a memorable, five-star week in local sports with a couple Utah-connected stories making national headlines (Jimmer Fredette, fight at Utah Valley University game) along with several big results/developments with the Utes and Cougs, six high school basketball champions crowned, and the Jazz in action four times.

There was even a little football news and a hockey fight I philosophically experienced with my 6-year old son.

This new week has potential for a big impact as well.
