Boys Basketball: What Has Been and What’s to Come

While Juab is mainly known for our football and wrestling teams, we also have great basketball teams and our boys team is having a good season. They have played 16 games so far and have won 11 and lost 5. This year, in our tournament and non-region games we have beat: North Sevier(70-44), Duchesne(58-43), Providence Hall(64-24), Ogden(54-50), Millard(52-50), Parowan(51-44), Gunnison Valley(61-42), and Grantsville(44-41).  

The boys have a fair chance of going to state again this year with the way their games are going. So far, we have played 6 region games going 6-1. The boys started their region games on January 11th and beat: Union(56-43), Delta(64-41), North Sanpete(49-44 with overtime), Union(68-47), Delta(62-35), and North Sanpete(74-58) and lost to Manti(60-69).

The starting line up consists of: Justin Stevens No. 1, Ryker Richards No. 4, Payton Park No. 5, Braxten Hooper No. 11, Austin Park No. 14. They start out every game strong and full of determination to win. They set the tone for the game and push the team to victory.
