ZAC SELJAAS, Bountiful, basketball: Few players will ever have a week quite like what Zac Seljaas enjoyed at the Dee Events Center during the 4A state tournament.
It started in the first round when Seljaas rallied No. 1 Bountiful from a 13-point deficit against Murray, culminating with his game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer.
"He's money. He's a heck of a player," said Bountiful coach Mike Maxwell.
Seljaas scored 30 points in that first-round victory, and after his team got a new lease on its quest for back-to-back 4A championships, Bountiful dominated the next three games to claim the state title.
Over Bountiful's four victories Seljaas averaged 20.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.3 steals.
For the season, the BYU-bound, 6-foot-7 guard averaged 25.4 points, made 82 3-pointers to go along with his 5.9 rebounds and 4.1 assists.
KATIE GLOVER, Kanab, girls basketball: Most teams that faced Kanab this year knew they had to do one thing if they wanted to have a chance to beat the Cowboys find a way to contain senior forward Katie Glover.
Actually stopping her was something most teams found impossible as she led her team to the state championship game last week. Glover led the team in the semifinals with 20 points and 18 rebounds.
In the state championship game, she led the Cowboys again with 19 points and 11 rebounds.
"She's been consistent all year," said Kanab head coach Mickey Houston. "She's one of the tripods of that senior group, and she's so good inside."
