There is a big difference between Utah's best and what Golden Holt thinks
is Utah's best.Bountiful and Alta should be playing in this if
you want the four best teams. They should be joined by American Fork and Lone
Peak.Orem and Bingham aren't even close. I understand Orem
being in it as they are the host, but Bingham? And ironically Bingham is the
only team that actually won!5A is wide open this year, Lone
Peak's reign of terror is over.
TJ Haws will see more of this type of defense as teams challenge him to hit from
long distance. He is arguably the best player in high school in the state, but
needs to penetrate to be effective.I think he's the equivalent
of BYU's Matt Carlino. When he's on fire from outside, he's
almost unstoppable and has no conscience. When he drives the ball, he's
also effective. I wish Lone Peak and TJ well this year!
Wasatch Academy should also be in this tournament.
LP is gonna have a way harder time this year than they have in the past. They
only have two guys that can put up points in Jackson and Haws. Those two are
great players, but those other guys are going to have to step up if LP is going
to repeat as champs.
You could at least do a story on Bingham that was a great win and they should
have won today but not a single story or pic or anything of course it's all
about line peak and Orem and Orem probably won't get a win in this tourney
