Riverton's win over West Jordan is every bit as impressive as Orem's win over
Lone Peak, even more. The Riverton/West Jordan rivalry goes way back, and must
have been very satisfying for the Riverton students/community/coaches/players.
Bummed and bruised up WJ team. They were coming off a huge and hard weekend of
success. They have not had a practice for a while only games. WJ tried but in
the end Riverton was the winner. The Loveridge kid is so far from wanting to
stacking his stats, all he wants is to win and win as a team, just like they
lost as a team. Remember everyone these guys are kids.
Oh brother, hats off to the kids at Riverton!!! Please dont make excuses for WJ
about games/practice, everyone knows game time is ALWAYS better then practice
time!! Yes Loveridge is a man among boys but you match effort AND mouth he gets
frustrated as we saw! Its gut check time for the 3 top 5A teams!!! No one is
going to win state this year if you dont do one thing...PLAY! Forget ranking,
forget stats, forget whos, who, where you go to school and flat out get after
it! So happy for Utah basketball, football, baseball, etc. its about time for
the outside states to see the talents of this state from 1A-5A.
@pingpong_playa88---Thanks for the information, sounds like you are close to the
situation. So I guess you are right. Whatever.
@Justalittleinfo---that is the pot calling the kettle black. From the sounds of
it, you are living at the same address as "the Loveridge kid". I've
watched him in four games this year and he certainly has no concerns about
padding his stats. He is doing plenty of it. Problem with the Riverton game
was that WJ didn't see them coming. They weren't ready. Loveridge put up a lot
of shots in trying to not pad his stats.
"Loveridge put up a lot of shots in trying to not pad his stats." How exactly does that work?
