Friday Boys 4A Basketball in St. George & Cedar City
#4 Desert Hills (9-5) at #7 Snow Canyon (11-6) - ESPN 97.7FM and Watch HERE
Desert Hills is coming off of two heart-breaking losses to really good teams.
They lost in the final seconds to Crimson Cliffs last week, and they lost to Dixie two days ago 71-68.
The Thunder know that they can compete with anybody in the region at this point, but can they get over the top?
Snow Canyon is 4-2 in Region 10 play, and hasn't lost a region game at home yet. The Warriors "Big Three" this year, Owen Mackay, Will Warner, and Cy Meacham, combine for 46 points per game. Mackay leads the 4A with 24.2 ppg.
The good news for Desert Hills is they have been red hot shooting the three. They made 14 of 28 threes against Dixie on Wednesday. They've made 145 3-pointers this season which is over 10 per game.
#13 Hurricane (2-11) at #14 Pine View (1-12) - Fox Sports Utah 101.9 / 99.1 FM and Watch HERE
This should be a good battle. Pine View played their best game of the year against Cedar last week on the road and lost on a buzzer-beater. Then this week, they battled Crimson Cliffs and only trailed by two points at halftime. They ended up losing, but the Panthers have shooters and two bonafide scorers in Griffen Shepherd and Nash Schroeder.
#2 Dixie (14-2) at #10 Cedar (6-7) - KSUB 590 AM and Watch HERE
The Flyers remain unbeaten in Region 10. They fought through adversity at home against a tough-nosed Desert Hills team on Wednesday. Can the Cedar Reds shoot the lights out at home and knock off the #2 team in the state? We'll see...
