When it comes to backcourts in the state there is absolutely nobody in the state that compares wo what is going on at Wasatch Academy. This backcourt will rival anyone in the country as well. This Wasatch Academy team really complements each other especially in the backcourt. 

Let’s start with 5- Star Class of 2022 G Richard "Pop" Isaacs who is living up to all the hype. It is absolutely wild to think he has one more year left. Richard has a very seasoned game, he has a high IQ and you put all that in a blender including a quick first step, lateral quickness and an outside shot. Then you sprinkle the sheer desire to win and you get an absolute beast in the backcourt.
