With a number of teams participating in tournaments, there are not as many top non-tournament games to watch in Week 3. In addition to this watch list, keep an eye on the Utah Elite 8 as well as the Vivint Great Western Shootout. A number of the top teams in the state will be participating in those tournaments. Here are the non-tournament games to watch for Week 3.
Copper Hills has a really tough week, and we should figure out a lot about this team and their ability to compete for a state title this upcoming season. In addition to playing a tough Kearns team, they will continue the week by participating in the Utah Elite 8. Trevon Allfrey has led the way for Copper Hills and will continue to be a big time player for the team. In addition, Joseph Wilson has stepped up and contributed to the scoring. In order for Copper Hills to reach their peak, they will most likely need one more consistent scoring threat to step up.
Majok Kuath has started the season strong, which was expected. In addition to Kuath, Journey Baba is playing at a high rate. Baba and Kuath make this team extremely difficult to guard as they are quite versatile. In addition, Emmanuel Andrew has been averaging a near double-double. His contributions have made this team well rounded and a force on the glass.
Players to Watch
Copper Hills: Trevon Allfrey and Joseph Wilson
Kearns: Majok Kuath, Journey Baba, and Emmanuel Andrew
West Jordan and Jordan have both started the season well. However, both teams have this game circled as a game that they must win if they plan on competing in their respective classifications. This will be a competitive game with a lot on the line despite it being so early in the season. Jordan brings into the game an advantage due to their length with Dyson Frank, Chandler Dean, and Dyson Koehler. However, West Jordan has Darrien Nebeker as he will be the most versatile player on the floor. Further, West Jordan brings into the game the best guard on the floor in Sinai Enoch.
West Jordan: Darrien Nebeker and Sinai Enoch
Jordan: Dyson Frank, Chandler Dean, and Dyson Koehler
Despite being 0-2, Delta has shown promise this season. Further, this will be one of the tougher match-ups that South Sevier has had in this early season. Thus, it will give the viewers more of a chance to see how good South Sevier truly is. Delta will be led by Derek Smith. Smith is the primary creator for Delta, and he will need to do that and more in order for Delta to pull off this upset.
As far as South Sevier is concerned, Caleb Barton and Brodee Tebbs are names that will be called out a lot throughout the duration of this game. They both can shoot the basketball well as well as create. They will be a handful for Delta. Further, Tyson Chisholm has had a strong start to this season. He gets most of his buckets by doing the dirty work and competing on the glass.
Delta: Derek Smith and Trevor Burton
South Sevier: Caleb Barton, Brodee Tebbs, Tyson Chisholm, and Easton Hunt
