Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Juab in first round

Edward’s evaluation: Will certainly be an underdog in the first round at Juab, but Juab is the weakest of the four No. 2 seeds in the 3A playoffs so if Union can get hot, anything is possible. At the same time, Union only averages 36.1 ppg, so a big scoring outburst seems unlikely.
