Richfield turned a six-point halftime deficit into a seven-point win thanks to a 32-point offensive outburst in the second half. Richfield will get the benefit of being close to home when the final three rounds of the state tournament play out at the Sevier Valley Center.
Dom Burns had 22 points while Jace Holmes’ double-double of 16 points and 10 rebounds helped push Judge Memorial past South Sevier. Carter Peterson had 21 points in the loss. The sixth-seeded Bulldogs will take on Manti in the quarterfinals on Thursday afternoon.
Moroni and Malachi Roberts combined to score 42 points as the Grand defense only allowed 42 points in its second-round win. The Red Devils will move on to play San Juan next Friday in the quarterfinals. San Juan and Grand split their home and home, with each team winning on their home court in late January.
A balanced scoring attack by San Juan that saw four different players score in double figures propelled it to a 20 point win over Summit Academy. Nathan Grover was the leading scorer for San Juan with 15. Summit Academy’s Zach Englebright led all scorers with 18.
A 17-point, 12-rebound double-double from Davin Ekins was a big reason that Grantsville ran past Emery in the second round of the state tournament. Grantsvillle, which is ranked on top of the classification, will take on Carbon in the next round.
Carbon was able to escape the No. 8 vs. No. 9 matchup with a big win. Preston Condie finished the night with 30 points and 10 rebounds and he also knocked down six 3-pointers. Carbon will face top-seeded Grantsville in the next round.
Tate Quarnberg (19 points with five 3-pointers), Tanner Justesen (17 points with three 3-pointers) and Grady Thompson all played lights out in Manti’s big win over ALA. The Templars were able to stretch out a lead to 20 points by halftime and never looked back.
