This weekend begins a month and a half of heaven for bball fans! HS tourneys through the first two weeks of the ncaa tournament...can't wait!
This year, I think 5A, 3A, and 2A are pretty solid locks. Lone Peak, Wasatch, and South Sevier are all going to be heavy favorites. 4A is completely up in the air. My team, Timpview, I've seen play numerous times and I still don't buy their #1 ranking, I think they could be in for some trouble. Highland, and Payson top the list of teams that will knock off my Thunderbirds. The best tourney of all will be 1A! Today I called to get a room in Richfield and they were all completely booked. I have to stay in Salina now. One hotel said that a school booked their entire hotel! Anyways, Wasatch Academy would be an easy favorite if it weren't for the tough road they will have to go through. If teams were inserted right now, they'd have to play Milford, Monticello, Bryce Valley, Liahona in that order...that's a tough road no matter how good you are. It's gonna be fun!

Did I see where Bingham is ranked ahead of West Jordan. Like I've supposed all along, there is Miner alumni creating these 'comment' collums.

I can say that if Bingham should win, they would be in the drivers seat to claim the school's seventh straight Region III championship. With the likes of Riverton and West Jordan lurking around, that is quite a feat.

The last team to win Region III, outside of Bingham, were the 03-04 Hunter Wolverines, who eventually went on to claim the 5A title that same year.

Actually, Hunter was not in the same region as West Jordan and Bingham in 03-04.

I know I'm a homer but did you realize that the brand new high school, Herriman High, has been playing with some of top teams in 5A? They barely lost to West Jordan (4pts and 5pts), Riverton (final score was 10 but tied game with 3 minutes to go and FT's in the end), played with Bingham both times (11 pts and 14 pt loss although it was played closer).

After looking at the 1a bracket I've got Liahona playing Tabiona and Wasatch Academy playing Monticello in the Semis. It's sad all the top region 20 teams are fed right into the top three teams in the state (Liahona, WA, and Monticello) so early. From there Liahona will cruise on while I think its a toss up between WA and Monticello. Then anything can happen in the championship especially with all the talent these two teams will have on the court. By then its all about who steps up. The differences I could see are Liahona getting beat by region 20 #1 in the quarters, and the crapshoot for the other spot in the top half could go to either the region 19 #2, I bet whitehorse, ICS, or 16 #2, I predicted Tabiona. Good luck to everyone I can't wait to see.

Hunter did lay waste to that whole Region 2 that year. They beat Bingham, West Jordan and Brighton that year in the tourney!

smallballfan: south sevier is good, but you can't say they are the heavy favorite. San juan proved they can be beat last week and South Summit is capable of beating them too.

This is 2A basketball any team can beat any other team on any given night.

South Sevier does have the easiest road to the championship in my opinion.

Number 2, 3, and 4 are all on the same side of the bracket.

Oh and in the six games that S. Sevier has played against ranked teams (3-5), they haven't played #2 South Summit, they have a score differential of 68 to 52. Averaging 16 point wins against ranked teams even with the 12 point loss against San Juan is pretty good I think. Not to mention they beat San Juan by more than twenty earlier in the season. I understand that they haven't played South Summit yet, but they won't play S. Summit unless they both go to the Championship. I'm pretty sure its fair to say they are a heavy favorite. Its not like they are saying that S. Sevier is going to win without question!

S.Summit should be the favorite coming into the tourney as they were coming into the season. They are full of experienced seniors and are a very good team. S. Sevier's work throughout the season has been a very pleasant surprise and earned them the right to be a favorite. They to are a very good team. I hope it does come down to those two teams in the final but you never know. S. Summit does have to play and prove they can beat all the teams S.Sevier has already beaten this year but I think they are very capable of doing that. Go Rams!!!

What about North Summit?

N. Summit is a scary team for S. Sevier to face if they can beat Kanab and N. Summit beats Beaver. I haven't seen them but did notice they gave S. Summit all they could handle there at home. Thay little guard you have can really light it up! Again haven't seen just read.

ummm, North Summit lost to Maeser by 20...enough said

I would have said a week ago that S. Sevier is a heavy favorite but considering they got beat double digits by San Juan and will have to play San Juan or play someone that is able to beat San Juan (like the senior laden defending champions), I would say they are a slight favorite to favorite.

SS
Cedar City, Utah

Yeah, those senior laden defending champions lost to Gunnison, oh yeah, so did San Juan. If you knew anything about that S. Sevier San Juan game I don't think it would tip the scales on who your favorite is. South Summit hasn't had any 2A competition this year. S. Sevier has played all of the other ranked teams (excepting S. Summit) and in those six games S. Sevier has an average score differential of 16 points, including the last San Juan game. S. Sevier is 20-1. Any team is beatable any night, one game doesn't change how good a team is! They are still the best in 2A, the schedule, stats and record shows that!

pingdew, congratulations on your non-blowout losses, sure sounds like Herriman is a powerhouse in the making, perhaps in a few years they can expect to lose by even less and maybe pick up a w.

Some teams just have the feel of destiny around them. The SS Rams are one of those teams this year. They are a ragtag, scrappy group coached by the best coach in the state. Bar None!

South Sevier is a team that normally has a lot confidence going into state BB tournaments. There are some schools that just have the prowess to get things done. San Juan and Millard are that way in football.

San Juan has recently had difficulty getting to the Great 8. I hope this year, a new coach and a pretty good team, they will be able to get playing in the championship bracket on Friday and Saturday. Go Broncos!!!

SS

I think San Juan has a pretty good team this year, but they are also in the midst of tough teams going in to the quarter finals, they are going to have to be playing their A game to advance!
