SALT LAKE CITY – Judge Memorial guard Mac Tarver scored a game-high 23 points as the Bulldogs dismantled Grantsville 82–51 in the final game of the regular season on Monday.
“Is that our best? Is that the team that beat South Summit?” Grantsville head coach Bryan Detweiler said. “I saw Manti coaches in the gym today. They got a full view.”
The Bulldogs jumped out to an early lead behind a defensive stand that held the Cowboys off the scoreboard for nearly four minutes after tipoff. Grantsville scored twice from the field in the first quarter, falling behind 19–9 after one.Comment on this story

Judge Memorial led 38–27 at halftime and extended the lead to 25 at the end of the third quarter.
Killian led Grantsville in scoring with eight points.
With the win, Judge finished third in region and will face Delta in the opening round of the Class 3A state tournament at Orem High School on Saturday.
Grantsville placed fourth and will face Region 15 runner-up Manti—a team that beat the Cowboys 69–55 on November 30 at the Sevier Valley Center—at 12:50 p.m.
