    You could at least do a story on Bingham that was a great win and they should have won today but not a single story or pic or anything of course it's all about line peak and Orem and Orem probably won't get a win in this tourney

    LP is gonna have a way harder time this year than they have in the past. They only have two guys that can put up points in Jackson and Haws. Those two are great players, but those other guys are going to have to step up if LP is going to repeat as champs.

    Wasatch Academy should also be in this tournament.

    TJ Haws will see more of this type of defense as teams challenge him to hit from long distance. He is arguably the best player in high school in the state, but needs to penetrate to be effective.

    I think he's the equivalent of BYU's Matt Carlino. When he's on fire from outside, he's almost unstoppable and has no conscience. When he drives the ball, he's also effective. I wish Lone Peak and TJ well this year!

    There is a big difference between Utah's best and what Golden Holt thinks is Utah's best.

    Bountiful and Alta should be playing in this if you want the four best teams. They should be joined by American Fork and Lone Peak.

    Orem and Bingham aren't even close. I understand Orem being in it as they are the host, but Bingham? And ironically Bingham is the only team that actually won!

    5A is wide open this year, Lone Peak's reign of terror is over.
