Tuesday night will be a special night for University of Utah freshman basketball player Morgan Grim.
Riverton High School is set to retire Grim's No. 21 jersey at halftime of its home game against Taylorsville.
Grim led his alma mater to back-to-back Class 5A runner-up finishes during his junior and senior seasons, averaging 16.5 and 20.7 points respectively those two seasons. He was honored as a first-team all-stater following his junior season, and last year he was the Deseret Morning News' Mr. Basketball recipient.
As a freshman so far this year at the U., Grim has played in seven games averaging 7.1 minutes, 1.4 points and 1.3 rebounds.
IMPRESSIVE RESUME: Thanks to some research by prep football historian George Felt, Jordan High wide receiver Cody Raymond finds himself in some pretty elite company.
When Raymond was selected to the Deseret Morning News all-state first team two weeks ago, he became just the 18th three-time first-teamer in state history.
He's the first three-time all-stater at one of the state's largest schools in 50 years, when Pleasant Grove's Paul Allen was honored from 1955 to 1957.
The most recent three-time all-staters regardless of classifications were Duchesne's Zach Bertola and Sam Hoopes from 2004-06.STATS REMINDER: Boys and girls basketball coaches are reminded to e-mail their year-to-date statistical leaders to [email protected] by Monday evening. The statistics to send in are rebounds, steals and assists.
