I wanted to leave this comment under the ranking section but it doesn't allow comments there so I'll post it here for now...

Help me out… in girl’s 5A basketball, Viewmont (11-9) is setting in 4th place in region 1, yet the DNews ranks them #5 in the state. Of the 24, 5A teams there are 11 teams with better records, plus the #3 team in the standing in region 1, Davis, is ranked below them? I think the Dnews has some good sports writers but they just don’t know much about sports? I’m thinking if they kept it simple and just looked at the win/loss column they wouldn’t place a team that ends the season losing 10 of their last 15 games (losing 67%) as the 5th best in Utah 5A? I might rank them #12 until they prove otherwise. Maybe it’s because it’s just girls’ basketball and no one really follows them anyway? What up? I thinking they may not allow this to be posted, but hope someone reads it.. .

Can't believe there was no coverage of the boys battle between Morgan and JD. It was a tremendous game with JD leading most of the game. Gabe Colosimo went out late in four quarter with a broken leg and Will Hoffler hit a late second three to send it into overtime. Morgan never gave up and pulled it out in OT, Both teams played their hearts out for the Region title Thanks to both teams to putting on one of the best high school games I've seen all year. DNews were you at the girls game the same night?
