Haws, Breckott, Dastrup, Toolson, Nixon OH MY!!! Added to Eric Mika, and Nick Emery??? How awesome will that team be??? They would be making movies about their accomplishments in 20 to 30 years... The new "Glory Road" bunch.

River Falls, WI

lol. Yeah, the new version of "Glory Road" would feature five white guys. The future looks bright for basketball in the state of Utah (and for BYU).

McLean, VA

Uh ... let's not count our chickens before they are hatched, folks. Chapman is still a very long shot for BYU; all credible sources have him strongly leaning towards the PAC-12, probably UCLA or Arizona. He would be a huge get, however -- he can play the 3 as well as the 4 and would be a great fit with Rose's uptempo style of play. Let's hope. We're in better shape for Dastrup, but no guarantees here either. One of the two would be terrific, both would be a big time recruiting coup, to go along with the current commits. Glory Road??? Let's get back to the NCAAs first, and win a few games there. As for the "white guys" comment ... last time I checked, we only see blue here, right?

Go Cougars!

Salt Lake City, UT

Mr. Gurney doesn't have facts straight. Dastrup does not play for Highland High in Gilbert, AZ. He plays for Mountain View in Mesa... always has. He and Toolson are friends, play for rival high school teams, played club ball together last summer, and same club this summer for this tournament only. Dastrup has played all summer for Cal Supreme club team. He's playing for both club teams this week in Vegas, but in different, simultaneous tournaments.

West Jordan, UT

AAU teams = allot of offense and very little defense. Most of these games are glorified all-star games. I do however, believe that the Utah teams do play more defense than all the other states combined. Go Utah.


The Utah Pump N Run won the Gold division championship in the Super 64 adidas tournament. Along the way they trashed the Dream Vision with top recruits Haws and Andrus by 20 points. The Prospects lost in the first round game of their not so Fab 48 run. Top prospects don't always amount to good play on the court. Takes good players with great coaching to get the job done on the court. That is why UPNR always does well with whoever they get. 95 college scholarships for it's players since 2004 and counting... Just ask the boys from Dream Vision what good team play will do to you! UPNR has done this for years. While this may be the Prospects best year yet it fails to mention that it is the only year of their existence at the 17U elite level.
