Utah Pyramid of Hoops Success | Feb 12
We're honoring five basketball players from the Beehive State in our weekly pyramid based on who had the best weekend.
Let's start with the bottom tier...
Mason Falslev - Utah State
Falslev is one of my favorites because he's a 4A alum from Sky View. He went off against Boise State and scored 25 points and made a few threes. Falslev is all hustle on defense and is fun in transition. I look forward to watching the Aggies come tournament time.
Nizhoni Dominguez - Hurricane Lady Tigers
Domingues had 17 points and 10 rebounds in the Lady Tigers win against Crimson Cliffs. Nizhoni has scored in double figures in three straight games for Hurricane.
John Collins - Utah Jazz
Collins was arguably the Jazz best player against the Suns. Efficient game knock down shooter etc.
Kyle Lemke - Dixie Flyers
Nobody can stop Lemke. He gets the lobs, he gets to his spots, he can beat you over the top with a hook shot. I don't know how teams are going to play him in the playoffs but I'm guessing he'll be shooting a lot of free throws.
Olivia Hamlin - Snow Canyon Lady Warriors
The best player in the state? I think it's close. She had 34 last Thursday and a million steals. She is a one person full-court press. Rick Pitino would love to have her on his team.
Jaylen Searles - Utah Tech
Searles had a career night for the Trailblazers and what a game to have it. Cal Baptist is third in the WAC and a rival of Utah Tech. Searles went off and he is this week's King of Utah Hoops.
