"Tomorrow night, Jordan Roberts of the Dixie Flyers needs 3 assists to break the all time single season assists record currently held by the great Rylen Jones. Utah high school basketball.

Roberts is averaging 12 assists per game. We did the math. 12 assists per game in a 32 minute high school game is equivalent to 18 assists per game in an 48 minute nba game. Who has the all time NBA single season assists per game record? Basketball John. 14.5 assists per game in 1989. Jordan is out-assisting Stockton!

Who has the college record per game? Avery Johnson at Southern University 13 assists per game in 40 minute college game. Roberts would be at 15 in a 40 minute game he is out assisting the all time college guy.

He's leading the country in assists per game. 

And he's on the verge of breaking the all time state record tomorrow night on ESPN 97.7 at the Thunderdome. And they should give him a standing ovation even though it's on the road. This is remarkable."


 Utah Hoops Pyramid of Success

Let's go...

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.
