High school boys basketball: 4A state tournament capsules

Published: Saturday, Feb. 23 2013 10:35 p.m. MST

Just like last season, No. 1 Orem and No. 2 Bountiful head into the 4A state tournament as the teams to beat. Last year they met in the semifinals, but this year a possible matchup would occur in the state championship.

There’s still a lot of basketball to be played before the teams can dream of the No. 1 vs. No. 2 final, however, and neither is a lock to advance. The overall quality in 4A is up from last year, and teams like Mountain Crest, Sky View, Olympus, Timpview and Springville are all certainly capable of making deep playoff runs themselves.

Here's a team-by-team look at all 16 teams participating in the 4A boys basketball state tournament at Weber State.
