Scott G. Winterton, Deseret News
As always happens, the past three weeks of high basketball state tournament action reiterated that anything can — and often does — happen. Of the 10 total boys and girls teams that hoisted trophies, only six were the No. 1 team in their respective classification entering the playoffs. The five state champions on the girls side were Alta (5A), Springville (4A), Emery (3A), Enterprise (2A) and Rich (1A). The Boys state champions were Lone Peak (5A), Highland (4A), Wasatch (3A), South Sevier (2A) and Wasatch Academy (1A). The Springville girls and Wasatch boys were the only repeat champions. It took 184 playoffs games to crown the 10 champions, and here are the Deseret News’ picks for the 10 best playoff games.
