November 23rd about 100 schools start their season. We take a look at a few games that jump out right off the bat.
Mountain Ridge @ Highland
Mountain Ridge makes it’s jump to 6A and opens up against a new look Highland Rams team. Highland has some players that can go in Elijah Tolbert Elijah Tolbert 6'2" | PG Highland | 2022 State UT and Sefa Brown Sefa Brown 6'5" | SF Highland | 2024 State UT . Sefa is an athlete W/SF and Elijah is a good lead guard. They will matchup against Jake Fitton Jake Fitton 6'2" | SG Mountain Ridge | 2022 State UT and Jackson Moller Jackson Moller 6'3" | SF Mountain Ridge | 2023 State UT who both have good size and can score the ball. This will be a chess match but it pits two teams making a transition
Northridge @ Weber
This match puts two really good guards against each other at the PG position. Northridge has Sam Sivulich Sam Sivulich 5'11" | PG Northridge | 2022 State UT and Weber has Cannon Devries Cannon Devries 6'0" | PG Weber | 2022 State UT . Both are quick and tough and can score. Sam is a three levels scorer that is an impressive athlete as well. Cannon is speedy and can defend, something will have to give in this matchup. Look for a player like Hunter Schecke to have an opportunity to go off as well for Weber.
Alta @ Pleasant Grove
This is probably one of the best matchups of the night as two teams with skill all over the floor. Pleasant Grove has some guys to watch like McCaden Adams McCaden Adams 6'3" | CG Pleasant Grove | 2022 State UT who is a W/G that can play both ends and is a matchup problem and they will have Michael Mitton Michael Mitton 6'3" | CG Pleasant Grove | 2023 State UT running the PG position and a big matchup for Isaac Garrett Isaac Garrett 6'8" | SF Pleasant Grove | 2023 State UT . On the other side Alta will showcase Jaxon Heiden Jaxon Heiden 6'9" | PF Alta | 2022 State UT and Jaxon Johnson Jaxon Johnson 6'8" | SF Alta | 2024 State #256 Nation UT two 6’9 prospects that can score at all three-levels. Jett Lundberg Jett Lundberg 6'2" | PG Alta | 2022 State UT will also have a challenge against some of those tough PG guards.
Layton @ Copper Hills
At a glance you see a team that has young talent going against a team that has a lot of returning pieces. You would think that Copper Hills could run away with this one but Layton has a scrappy team that will be lead by two young sophomores in KJ Miller KJ Miller 6'3" | CG Layton | 2024 State UT and Mekhi Martin Mekhi Martin 6'2" | PG Layton | 2024 State UT . Copper Hills will get production from Quincy Hills Quincy Hills 6'0" | PG Copper Hills | 2022 State UT , McCoy Langston McCoy Langston 6'6" | CG Copper Hills | 2022 State UT and Luke Moir Luke Moir 6'6" | SF Copper Hills | 2022 State UT . This could be a high scoring affair.
