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

Edward’s evaluation: Judge heads into the playoffs on a five-game winning streak and is certainly capable of tacking on a few more up at the nearby Huntsman Center. A strong defense is the reason why Judge could be extending its stay a few extra days. Despite its inconsistencies offensively this season, Judge is one of the top defensive teams in 4A and it matches up well with Springville in the first round and even potentially Roy in the quarterfinals.
