Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Emery in quarterfinals

Edward’s evaluation: Winners of 13 straight, South Summit sits on the opposite side of the bracket of Wasatch Academy and is certainly capable of getting hot and advancing to the title game. At the same time, there are no easy games this tourney for the Wildcats who could conceivably get bounced in any round.
