james why are they not going to the Dee Events Center this year? why
the old Mavorick Center?I believe that Not one team from Region 1 or
Region 2 will win there first round game.Copper Hills is going to
beat Region 1 Winner Northridge,Riverton will have to play good, but they
can beat Viewmont who has seen no competition since its REGION got underway. Bingham will beat HunterThe Brighton Weber game is kind of a coin flip,
but with Brighton playing Alta twice, and West jordan Twice, (one time was a
win) they can win this game because of the Miller KidAlta will beat

Well, you'll be wrong again just like you were about the football playoffs.
Have you seen any of the Region 1 or 2 teams play this year or are you just
spouting off again thinking that the SL schools are better than the northern
utah schools? Weber will win their first round game and if the other teams from
Region 1 play well they can beat any of their opponents. (Just like football,
NOBODY in the state except those from Syracuse thought they would beat Alta in
the first round, but they did)(NOBODY in the state thought that Bingham would
lose to little old Fremont, but they did) That's why they play the game. I
guess we should just not show up and give the trophy to all the SL schools cause
they are better than the schools up here right??
Basketball is a completely different sport and I have personally seen every team
in region 1 play this year and they don't compare to the talent of the region 3
teams. The only team with a chance to win on tuesday will be Northridge but it
will be a battle. The region 1 teams all have good defensive stats but the
problem is they can't score so of course they are going to look good. Region 3
and 4 will dominate this tournament.
I've got to say I agree with James, West Jordan and AF in the final with WJ
winning. I also think Alta may make the semi's and LP will make it to the
semi's and lose. I do think there will be upsets along the way, anything
can happen in the playoffs and I wouldn't be surprised to see Northride and
Weber win a game or two. Brighton can also win a game or two if Miller gets
Papi_chulo relax! First off LP and AF are not SL schools. The represent Utah
County, just like you want respect for northern schools I expect the same for UT
County schools. They have been thrown into a region with other SL schools.
Regions 1 and 2 are very good teams. I had to read your hype all through
football. Region did well, but in the end LP won. In basketball LP already
destroyed the #1 team from region 2 by 30 points. That is a bad region. I have
Northrige and Weber getting to the quarterfinals from Region 1 and Hunter along
with Viewmont from Region 2. From there it will be WJ and LP in one semi final
and Alta and AF in the other. There are too mant D1 players on those teams. AF
beats Alta and If LP gets running against WJ....they win. I then take LP in a
wild one over AF in the finals. LP will have something to prove.
My Picks:5A Lone Peak over Kearns Northridge over Copper
Hills W.J. over Fremont Hunter over Bingham
Brighton over Weber A.F. over West Viewmont over Riverton Alta over Davis Quarters Lone Peak over
Northridge W.J. over Hunter A.F. over Brighton
Alta over Viewmont Semis Lone Peak over W.J.
A.F. over Alta Finals Lone Peak over A.F.
First off, I'm very relaxed LP supporter. I can voice my opinion if I want to.
Second, you were not forced to read all my "hype" during the football
season. You chose to read it. I'm sure the DeseretNews likes when I comment
because it gets people interested and commenting on their articles.
In 2004 I can remember when Region II was completely overlooked, all year long,
by everyone. Then low and behold they placed two of their schools in the 5A
championship game (Cottonwood-Hunter), with Hunter prevailing. Hunter opened
that year with an exciting win over a fourth seed Bingham team (1 vs. 4), this
year Hunter opens with a third seed Bingham team (2 vs. 3).Could
history repeat itself?Wolverines 2012 5A state champions! Wo Wo Wo
Good luck to all the teams!As much as I like to remain optimistic I
have to also be realistic (region 1 will be lucky to win two games in the first
round). I believe the winner of this years tourney will be the
winner of the WJ-LP semifinal, however I wouldn't be shocked to see AF as the
team cutting down the net on saturday.
OK People.You all think that Hunter is going to beat Bingham???Why?? That region is sooooo bad. Bingham ended 3rd in there own region
and Hunter would of got smoked by both Lone Peak and AF in two games during the
season. They also would not of made it out of Region 3 or 4, Lehi, and PG both
would beat Hunter. To the guy talking about 2004.Hunter was
ranked #1 or #2 all year, with the big center dude and asiasta and some other
guys, you guys were stacked. Bingham was #4 in there own region with a down
year.Everyone was giving praise to your team. Papi
Chulo,This is not football. This is basketball. Where not one
single team since the 05 Fremont team has won state from up north in football or
basketball, or Baseball, baseball has been at least 15 plus years.Thats the tree main sports. and Not one REGION 1 team, Has a state football,
basketball, or baseball title since 2005. Thats why no one shows much love up
that way.Because all region one does is have great games of mediocore
teams all playing each other.
PAPI Chulo, from up in the northern part of utah somewhere.Here are
a couple stats Id like to throw your way to why I dont have much respect for
Region one in Baseball at all. Football yes up north they do have good teams.
Basketball they had good teams yes. But as of 2000. Check it out....Baseball1 state title in 4A(Mountain Crest 2009)0 state titles in
5AFootball4 state titles in 5A(2000-2002 3 from Northridge) (
2004 Davis) None Since 20045 state titles in 4A (Logan 2000 and 2011)
Mountain Crest 2001 and 2005 and Bountiful 2002 and 2003Basketball2 State Titles in 5A(Davis 2002, Fremont 2005)0 State
Titles in 4A since 2000.Since 2000 in Baseball Basketball and
Football titlesUtah county 30 titlesSL County 29 titlesEvery
School north of West High school only 4A and 5A teams are applying here
People.13 state titles and 10 of those are in football. but again none
I've seen a lot of hs basketball this year. While its no surprise, I think AF,
WJ, and LP have some great teams. Among those three I think AF has the best
defense. If each team played to the talent they have as a team, LP would win.
But at the Maverick Center WJ has done very well. Region II is
terrible. Any team from region II winning would be an upset. Yes even Hunter.
Bingham can play and they have a super coach.I wonder if the winner
of the WJ/LP game (if it happens) expends their energy allowing AF to win.On the 4A side- Orem looks good, but haven't played well for the last
I knew I could get people commenting on your stories once again deseretnews. :)
papi_chulo how does the crow taste? "Well, you'll be wrong again
just like you were about the football playoffs. Have you seen any of the Region
1 or 2 teams play this year or are you just spouting off again thinking that the
SL schools are better than the northern utah schools?"I am sure
binghamalum has now seen the region 1 and region 2 teams play now. I had not
watched any games from those regions, but I did yesterday. WOW, they were not
very impressive. (understatement). I stopped the streaming in the WJ game when
they were up like 38-6. Funny that ALL the Region 2 teams are out
and 3 were blowouts. The only Region 1 team left was the #1 seed in the mighty
Region 1 had to go to OT to put away a #4 seed.
@factcheckCrow is delicious! A lot better than what you eat at your
house. I love commenting on these boards to get all you Salt Lake people riled
up...it is sooo fun! and the DeseretNews needs some help in getting readers to
read and comment on their stories again.
papi_chulo. I loved your comment:"Have you seen any of the
Region 1 or 2 teams play this year or are you just spouting off again thinking
that the SL schools are better than the northern utah schools?"MEMO to any of the 'Salt Lake People' who did not get a chance to see Region 1
or 2 teams play this year, I have some bad news. You will have to wait until
@factcheckTo any SL people that wanna see a Region 1 school play can
watch Northridge play this Thursday at the "great hockey rink" I mean
"basketball arena" in West Valley.May wanna get your facts
straight before you post factcheck. Cause I'm checking your facts and I'm
checking them twice.
papi_chulo is correct, I stand corrected. The OT win by Region #1 over an
average CH team that squeaked into the playoffs as the #4 seed, means that
Region 1 and Region 2 are a combined 1-7. LOL!New MEMO to SL folks:
Better get to the Maverick Center Tomorrow to watch Northridge get beat by 50.
Don't want to miss your last chance to see the one and ONLY team from the great
North that got past the first round.
