Am I missing something or are the girls games starting late?

Regarding the Lyman sisters and their "individual" scoring - they're just following coaching ingrained reflexes. They may not be credited to the points scored but most of the "teams" points wouldn't occur without the rebounds and steals by the Lyman sisters. I'm sure if they dared to be spontaneous they would be in double digits across the stat sheets.

Is there anywhere we can listen to this game like a radio station. I cant watch it on here it keeps buffering so I see like 2 seconds.

The real State Championship for 2A girls is being played for 2nd and 3rd place. Parowan and Kanab, as there are 2 3A teams playing for our 2A championship Richfield and Emery.. it's time they put some people in their real classification. You can do it in football, but not in all the other sports. Give me a break Utah.....

To "Ask me if I care"
Though I agree schools should be classified appropriately by number of students enrolled; I would have to disagree with using "classification" as an excuse for the "quality" of the athletes or the outcome of a game. (Your pretty much calling your own athletes untalented.)
If "individuals" are taught or "coached" to be their best (which includes physical - conditioning & tactics, social - works well with others even in disagreement including small or large groups and even the opposing team, coaches, and referees, and mental - self confidence knowing effort equals outcome) then where they live, or go to school has no influence on their athletic talents or abilities. Coaching a "team" that has determined, "individually enhanced" athletes whether 1A or a million A is going to come out on top. It's what the individual is able to take away in experience that makes them a winner.
But in direct response to classification as the excuse for who plays in the championship game, a well coached "team" will more often than not, be playing in that game.

@ Rebounds&Steals, maybe you read my comment wrong or I wrote it wrong, cause my main beef, is qty. of students available. We can coach a team of 3 great girls, and the balance of decent, but when a school has a pool of students to choose from so much greater than yours, and can field 5 great players with a bench full of decent players, I think the hurdle you have to cross is so much greater. Coaching is huge, and that I agree on, but I would rather have 500 girls at tryouts, than 100.
