Saturday the state tournament will commence and 16 teams will all be throwing their names in to decide who will gain the title of 2A state champion. The teams from the 2015 final, Emery and Manti, return in hope to make another appearance in the final game.
Two teams that that have a good chance to stand in their way are Layton Christian and Summit Academy. In any case this tournament is the chance for all the teams participating to get the final say on the 2015-16 season.
