James you summarized it best with Taylorsville, their best win was over a WJ team that didn't make the tourney. T-Ville would be bottom tier in any other region. Their 15 point loss to the worst team in 5A (Jordan) backs up that point.

Region 3 benefits from playing Region 2, in my opinion Region 3 was weak this year but each of their teams will advance mostly because of who they play. Region 4 was loaded, and I believe Riverton, Lehi, and West Lake would all have won Region 2.

Up north Davis, Viewmont, and Layton are all formidable opponents. Syracuse is not very good.

Here are my predictions:

First round winners: Bingham, Lpne Peak, Davis, Copper Hills, AF, Brighton, Alta, PG.

Quarters: Lone Peak, Davis, AF, Alta

Semifinals: Davis, AF

Champion: Davis

West Jordan, Utah

State Tourney's landscape will look quite differently without either Scott Brigg's Jaguars, or Steve Galley's Silverwolves, in the field of sixteen.

They, along with there teams/ fans, will be missed.
