Top 10 Utah high school sports stories of 2012
After 59 years, Orem's boys basketball team finally has a championship banner to hang in the rafters.
Led by three underclassmen, Orem dominated the 4A landscape all season, finishing with a 24-1 record and winning the 4A state championship with a 58-50 win over Olympus in the title game.
Among those 24 victories was a 57-51 win over eventual 5A state champion Lone Peak back in the preseason.
Orem's only loss of the season was a 78-71 victory by West Jordan at the Great Western Shootout.
"I can't even tell you how amazing this feels. This was our goal and we worked hard every day to get here. Now that it's here, it's just unreal," said Orem sophomore Dalton Nixon.
