Gunnison was able to flip a one-point deficit into a one-point victory with a fourth quarter performance that allows them to go to Richfield for the final rounds of the state tournament. Only five different Bulldogs scored, but four finished in double figures, including Janzen Keisel who scored 17. Gunnison will take on Beaver on Monday morning.

Montciello was the only double-digit seed to find their way to the quarterfinals among the three classifications that played on Friday night.

Cory Bunker led Monticello with 23 points, all of them coming from inside the arc.
After UMA’s upset of West Valley APA in the first round, they fell on Friday night to the third ranked Rams.

Draper APA scored at least 20 points in each of the final three quarters of the game, this ended up giving them the separation they needed as they clinched their ticket to final stage of the State Tournament. They will meet Parowan in the quarterfinals on Monday afternoon.
