Published: Thursday, Feb. 14 2013 3:29 p.m. MST

Despite this year's 3A state tournament being held 350 miles north of last year's site in St. George, many expect another great showing from Southern Utah's Region 9 schools. The tournament gets underway this Saturday at home sites, and will then shift to Weber State the following Thursday. Defending state champion Snow Canyon, along with last year's runner-up Desert Hills, are expected to be right in the thick of it again.

In order of winning percentage, these are the 16 teams that qualified for the 3A girls state basketball tournament this year:

1. Desert Hills (19-2)

1. Juan Diego (19-2)

3. Morgan (18-2)

4. Cedar (17-4)

5. Delta (14-5)

6. Carbon (15-6)

6. Wasatch (15-6)

6. Judge (15-6)

You are correct James! It is a travesty that the UHSAA allowed this change in first round match ups that pits Region 9 vs Region 10 for the second year in a row! Never been done before! Totally unfair to these young ladies and their teams? Shame on the 3A principles who voted for this!


Don't put all the blame on the UHSAA. All other sports rotated with the first round region matchups. There was a decision made by Region principals to have the same region match ups as last year. Every year people complain about something. Just go out and play your best. Upsets happen! Go Wasps! A great opportunity to pull an upset early. Wasp girls have what it takes.
