For the first two months of the high school basketball season, defending champ Dixie seemed like the clear front runner to repeat as it marched to an 18-0 record. In the past two weeks though it lost twice, and now this year's tournament seems pretty wide open with four or five teams in position to perhaps claim the state title.
The last three rounds of this year's state tournament take place at Utah State, a unique opportunity for the Northern Utah teams to enjoy less travel unlike some of the more recent state tournaments that have been in Southern Utah.
In alphabetical order, these are the 16 teams that have qualified for the 3A boys state basketball tournament, and predictions on how the tournament will unfold.
