    This team is the best PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL IN THE country for Highschool basketball!

    They just lost to a Private school! In there 4th game in 4 days and only playing 6 players, I knew either emery or Haws would have a bad game! They just lost there legs!

    Hopefully they can meet this #1 team Montverde again !

    Oh and this group would easily improve our Squad at BYU this year, they are so bad this year, and there bench is the worst, and They are expecting 20 ppg from Tyler Haws,

    No way should tyler Haws be having to be your scorer, he needs to be a 15 ppg guy and play better Defense, he is so worn out on Defense, Baylor exploited that, just like Florida State did.

    But this is a great thing for Utah, they are all from Alpine, all kids on that team, and they just have 2 more games to go show there talent still.

    If Lone Peak doesnt get invited to the final 8 teams of the year tourney I will be livid.
    National Championship !

    I'm a converted skeptic. They don't have to win this tournament to impress me anymore.

    Lone Peak deserves the #1 ranking. They are clearly one of the few premier High School teams in the country.

    All the respect in the world. Great job Lone Peak! The best Utah High School team ever...

    Very impressive run by a bunch of HS kids from the same area. Well coached, talent and playing together gets results. Tonight they go up against the #2 team in the nation according to USA Today. It's also a HS basketball academy with kids not doubt from all over. They are coached by the former St Patrick's HS coach out of NJ who was lured away by this academy to come coach in FL. No doubt money played a role in that decision as well as funding challenges each year for the Catholic schools hoping to just stay open another year. Good Luck and Go Knights!

    Choo Choo, the Lone Peak train is coming through. Pretty impressive considering the talent level they're playing and the distance that they had to travel to even play in this tournament.

    Well, it would be nice to see them all at the same time. Emery heading to mission, T.J. will be a senior at L.P. and Mika will play at BYU 2013 start. We should see all three at same time after T.J. finished his mission by 2016 which will be a long time. So T.J. will be Frosh, Emery be Soph, and Mika either be Senior or Soph (if he goes on mission).

    Well, how that sound? Long time to put puzzle together.

    Go LP win it tonight. Any chance live stream or tv today?

    I think that Emery, T.J. Haws and Mika would probably start fro BYU right now. BYU needs those kids now.
