Now entering his second year as Head Coach at Wasatch Academy Dave Evans brings back one of the best teams in the country. With a roster full of Division 1 athletes Coach Evans looks to take this team to new heights starting with another birth into The Geico National Tournament in New York City. 

Wasatch is scheduled to play 33 games this year and 12 of those will be against in-state schools with most traveling to Mount Pleasant to face the Tigers on their home court. The small town of Mount Pleasant has a population that is about 3,400. On the basketball court they play anything but small town basketball. With players flying all of the court and everyone on roster playing above the rim, even their shortest player (Mike Saunders) can fly. This year like past years coaches from all over the country will flock to this small town to watch some of the best players in the country compete.

The Tigers open the season at home against Payson, Utah. Then they square off against Lone Peak at the UVU Tip-Off Classic in Orem. This will be their first test of the year. They start the month of December
