5A boys basketball — Monday scores

SHARE 5A boys basketball — Monday scores

First-round games in the 5A high school boys state basketball tournament are being played Monday at Weber State University:

Cottonwood 43, Granger 38

The Colts snapped out of their two-game losing streak, but they had to hold on for dear life at the end to do so. Cottonwood jumped out to a 10-0 lead, increased it to 33-16 and then sweated profusely as the Lancers got within three in the last minute.

Darnell Jones, who finished with a game-high 13 points, made a key steal

in the last minute and hit some timely free throws to seal the victory for

C-Wood. Center Derek Dawes hauled in 16 rebounds, scored nine points and

had four blocked shots.

Jesse Montoya led the balanced Granger attack with 10 points.

Copper Hills 71, Jordan 65

The Grizzlies advanced to the quarterfinals for the second straight year powered by 22 points from Jared Johnson and 19 from Brandon Lord. Johnson drilled five of Copper Hills' nine 3-pointers, and the Grizzlies also sank 18 of 21 free throws.

The Beetdiggers trailed most of the way and made a late run, but couldn't quite catch up despite strong outings by Brian Isaac (16 points), Ryan Allen (14) and Kurtis Lesh (12).

Copper Hills will face Cottonwood in the round of eight. The Colts won a previous matchup earlier this season by five points.Copper Hills (13-9) 16 17 18 20 - 71

Mountain View 62, Skyline 47

The two-time defending champions advanced to the quarterfinals, but their victory came with a huge price tag. It most likely cost them standout center Seth Scott, who suffered a possibly serious knee injury late in the fourth quarter. He's probably out for the rest of the tournament, which could kill the Bruins' hopes of a three-peat.

Scott, who scored 12 points and had nine rebounds, was banged hard on a

layup attempt. He was escorted out of the arena and was to be taken to the

doctor to be diagnosed Monday afternoon.

Dan Henry, the younger brother of former Mr. Basketball Tim Henry and

previous 5A MVP Scott Henry, led Mountain View with 21 points. Justin Clegg

added 11 points.

For the Eagles, Mick Davis and Matt Ciaramella each scored 12 points and

For the Jaguars, a second-seeded team, Andrew Blanchard fired in

20 points and Stephon Mills put in 16.Northridge (16-5) 8 15 14 26 - 63

Brighton 56, Taylorsville 37

The Bengals cruised to the win, but as the Bruins, they were scared to death when their star player went down with an injury.

Garner Meads, who was just named a McDonald's All-American, crashed down

on his knee and strained it. He writhed in pain for a few minutes before

leaving for treatment. Minutes later, Meads returned to the court, though

limping, to finish with 21 points.

Riverton 56, Viewmont 44

The Silverwolves didn't have to wait long to obtain the first playoff victory in the new school's history. Nick Buroker spearheaded Riverton's charge, tearing up the nets for 24 points with four three-pointers.

Skyler Wilson and Mitch Young each added a dozen points for the

Silverwolves, who'll play Brighton in the quarterfinals.

Layton 73, Timpanogos 68

The Lancers used a strong fourth quarter, outscoring the Timberwolves by eight points, and were boosted by big-time contributions from some unheralded players.

Reserve Shad McCord led the Lancers with 20 points and 10 rebounds, and

Jason Deelstra finished with 18 points. Standout Troy Goodell netted 17

points and grabbed seven boards for Layton.

Layton did an excellent job containing Timpanogos sharpshooter Golden

Ingle, holding him to only 12 points on 4-for-13 shooting. Paul Thomsen

topped the Timberwolves with 15 points.Timpanogos (13-8) 15 17 17 19 - 68

Bingham 68, Orem 54

Though they never pulled away, the top-ranked Miners didn't have too many problems with the Tigers. Tyler Holt, who has a history of playing well at Weber State, led Bingham with 21 points. Isaac Holdaway added 13, while Mike Higgins and Jason Baker dumped in a dozen apiece.

Kevin Gardner topped the Tigers with 19 points, and Jeff Ford had 13 in

the losing cause.
