Boys Basketball Looks Promising as Region Play Begins

Juab Boys Basketball has had a tremendous start to their season. After an initial loss to Richfield, they won eight games in a row, defeating then-fifth-ranked Carbon, fourth-ranked San Juan, 4A Hurricane. They currently stand at #3 in the state 3A rankings.

As the new semester starts up, basketball is entering region play. Their biggest competition in region 14 is #2 Manti. Whoever wins the two contests between us and them will most likely solidify the two spot for the state tournament and take the region title. The other teams in our region are North Sanpete and Carbon who now sit at #7 and #8, and then ALA, Union, Maeser, and Delta, who take up four of the bottom five spots in 3A.

The basketball team is currently quarantined so both games this week were canceled. They (hopefully) start up again next week playing North Sanpete at home on Wednesday and Union away on Friday. Unfortunately, the Pit is still not allowed at home or away games.

Good luck guys!
