@ Streeter:That IS a great article in the NY Times. Props to Lone
Peak for the national recognition.For other readers to see the
article, go to NYtimes dot com, scroll down about 3 screens, and look for the
"Sports" section along the right edge.While that NYT article
IS interesting, it doesn't really give me the "insider analysis" I
was hoping for, to REALLY understand why LP is so consistently dominant in Utah
hoops (and now nationally), in recent years. What are they doing that other
schools aren't? What's their big secret?@ LPsuppPorter:
Regardless of BYU's "traditions" of the past, I still can't
believe these nationally-elite players wouldn't go play ball at some of the
top-tier NCAA schools, rather than "just" BYU!!?
InspectorC:Does the New York Times count as an unbiased source for
analysis of dominance?... Google their lengthy write-up on Lone Peak
that they posted today. (I tried to link it here, but it wouldn't let me
because it's a "non-wrapping long sentence" or something?...haha)
Re Sports-nut, Take SR 92 7 mile East for you coming south that is a left turn
go to 4800 West turn right, go South 1 mile and there you are on your right
( West side). Seriously!!!!! Get a Garmin
RE: LP supporterThank you for the coordinates for the High School.
I know EXACTLY where the MT Timpanogas Temple is. Seriously?
RE Inspector CLP is located In Highland, it is on the border of Cedar
Hills and Highland, it is 1 mile North of the MT timpanogas Temple. Students
from Highland, Cedar hills and Alpine attend. I note that it is a "closed
campus" meaning that you must live in boundary to attend.A comment to you;
these young men are not settling to attend BYU they chose the "Y" from a
host of offers. TJ Haw's dad Marty played at BYU, his brother, Tyler
currently is the #9 scorer in the country and starts at BYU. Nick Emery's
bother, Jackson is the all time steals leader at BYU. Mika just chose to go
there also. Conner Toolson's dad Andy was an amazing shooter at BYU and
played for the Jazz. (I hope The Y offers Conner) Talon Shumway is going to the
Y on a football scholarship. BYU has averaged over 25 wins each of the past
several years. They may not be Duke ,but they have a very good history. Every
young man should be so lucky to get an offer to play close to home and get a
Where is Lone Peak High? What area/city does it cover?Will several
knowledgable sports readers (here) please post your "unbiased"
opinion/analysis as to why you believe LP is _SO_ incredibly dominant in
hoops?Final question: If these guys are this good (#1 in Nation),
why are ANY of the first-string settling for the Y?!? Seems like they could
write their own tickets to ANY top-tier program in the nation (ergo, Jabari
I watched them play at the first of the season against Denver East. They look
so fast in person. Emery's ability to get past people is amazing. He is
so quick. Mika is so powerful inside. They are just incredibly fun to watch.
The Rock"I want to see Lone Peak play. I live in Washington
state and I really want to see BYU's future."The tournament
is being streamed live - check related D-News article for link.
I want to see Lone Peak play. I live in Washington state and I really want to
see BYU's future.The future looks mighty bright.
I want to wish these Lone Peak boys the very best in their run for the state
crown. However, I hope this year's seniors bring the BYU Cougars the needed
talent and mojo as they trickle back from their missions. I want to forget this
year's Cougars basketball season since it seems like an invitation to the
Big Dance is out of reach. Let's move onto football.
UnbelievableLone Peak is simply playing at a different level this
year, not only within the state, but within the entire country. The
Knights have already beaten the best teams in several other states. This
isn't going to be so much a competition as a coronation. Every other team
in the tournament is fighting for 2nd place.
No one will beat Lone Peak. In fact, if any team gets within 20 it will be a
moral victory. Best team of all time in Utah!
Lone Peak is amazing on offense,..but they're world-class on defense with
their quickness. Lone Peak teams in the past have been somewhat vulnerable
because a team could beat one or the other. Not this team.
The last time Hunter was so disrespected (2004), Hunter and Cottonwood (both
'then' Region III rivals) squared off against each other in the title
game, leaving all the other hopfulls on the outside, looking in. So all you
know it alls, quit counting your chickens before they're hatched.It's high time the big boys get this state stuff started!West
vs Kearns for the the state title! Go Cougars!Best swishes to
