Just like last season, No. 1 Orem and No. 2 Bountiful head into the 4A state tournament as the teams to beat. Last year they met in the semifinals, but this year a possible matchup would occur in the state championship.

There’s still a lot of basketball to be played before the teams can dream of the No. 1 vs. No. 2 final, however, and neither is a lock to advance. The overall quality in 4A is up from last year, and teams like Mountain Crest, Sky View, Olympus, Timpview and Springville are all certainly capable of making deep playoff runs themselves.

Here's a team-by-team look at all 16 teams participating in the 4A boys basketball state tournament at Weber State.

Bountiful Braves (19-3)

2012-2013 Schedule

Coach: Mike Maxwell (24th year)

How qualified: First in Region 6 with 10-0 record.

Playoff opener: vs. Westlake, Tuesday, 5:50 p.m. (At Weber State)

Best preseason victory: A 62-56 win against Olympus on Jan. 2.

Most important region victory: A 57-43 win against Highland on Jan. 29.

#20 Pere LeSueur, Jr., Guard (8.1 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 1.1 apg)

#31 Jordan Bleak, Jr., Guard (6.1 ppg, 1.5 rpg, 2.5 apg, 1.3 spg)

#13 Jeff Pollard, So., Forward (5.0 ppg, 3.7 rpg)

Scoring offense: 62.4 ppg (4th in 4A)

Scoring defense: 51.2 ppg (7th in 4A)

Last state championship: 1997 (5A)

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Orem in championship game.

Edward’s evaluation: Since starting the year 1-3, this team led by all underclassmen has been unstoppable, winning 18 straight to end the regular season. The Braves have certainly been in some tight games, but night in and night out they’ve proved they know how to finish games off. After what should be a straightforward first-round game, the path to a championship gets much more difficult for Bountiful in the tough lower bracket. With that said, with Utah State commit Sam Merrill leading the way this team is certainly capable of capturing its first state title since 1997.

East Leopards (17-6)

2012-2013 Schedule

Coach: Skip Lowe

How qualified: Third in Region 6 with 6-4 record.

Playoff opener: vs. Murray, Tuesday, 9:30 a.m. (At Weber State)

Best preseason victory: A 66-64 win at Jordan on Dec. 31.

Most important region victory: A 64-55 win at Highland on Feb. 12.

#22 Connor Pardoe, Sr., Guard (4.3 ppg, 1.0 rpg)

#3 Preston Curtis, Jr., Guard (3.0 ppg, 1.9 rpg, 1.4 apg)

Scoring offense: 62.8 ppg (3rd in 4A)

Scoring defense: 58.3 ppg (20th in 4A)

Last state championship: 1981

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Orem in quarterfinals.

Edward’s evaluation: With future Ute Parker Van Dyke leading the way, East is a dangerous team heading into the playoffs. Defense could be a bigger concern for East, which ranks 20th in scoring defense in 4A. In two region losses against Bountiful it gave up 74 and 85 points. The Leopards wouldn’t meet Bountiful until the final, but if they are fortunate enough to win their 9:30 a.m. opener against Murray on Tuesday, Orem’s No. 1 offense will be waiting in the quarterfinals, which doesn’t bode well.

Herriman Mustangs (12-10)

2012-2013 Schedule

Coach: Brad Tingey (3rd year)

How qualified: Third in Region 7 with 6-4 record.

Playoff opener: vs. Highland, Tuesday, 2:30 p.m. (At Weber State)

Best preseason victory: A 69-54 win against Pleasant grove on Dec. 18.

Most important region victory: A 51-49 (OT) win at Westlake on Feb. 1.

#24 Tueni Lupeamanu, Sr., Forward (6.5 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 2.3 apg, 1.6 spg)

Scoring offense: 56.1 ppg (14th in 4A)

Scoring defense: 54.6 ppg (14th in 4A)

Last state championship: None

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Highland in first round.

Edward’s evaluation: Many thought the Mustangs would challenge for the Region 7 title this year, but injuries to key players prevented them from developing much consistency. There are subtle signs that things are coming together, most notably an overtime loss to Olympus on Feb. 8 in which the Huskies held Olympus under 50 points. If Herriman can duplicate that defensive effort in the first round against Highland, a second straight trip to the 4A quarterfinals is certainly possible.

Highland Rams (14-8)

2012-2013 Schedule

Coach: Keith West (14th year)

How qualified: Second in Region 6 with 7-3 record.

Playoff opener: vs. Herriman, Tuesday, 2:30 p.m. (At Weber State)

Best preseason victory: A 62-60 win at Riverton on Dec. 18.

Most important region victory: A 51-41 win at East on Jan. 25.

#4 Jake Connor, Jr. (5.3 ppg, 2.5 rpg)

Scoring offense: 56.3 ppg (13th in 4A)

Scoring defense: 48.3 ppg (3rd in 4A)

Last state championship: 2011

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Mountain Crest in quarterfinals.

Edward’s evaluation: A month ago Highland was looking like a potential sleeper team for the 4A state tournament, particularly with one of the best defenses in 4A. However, back-to-back losses to East and Bountiful to end the season have certainly raised some red flags about how deep this team can really advance.

Logan Grizzlies (13-11)

2012-2013 Schedule

Coach: Logan Brown (3rd year)

How qualified: Tied Box Elder for fourth in Region 5, but won a play-in game to earn No. 4 seed. It then beat Region 8's Provo in another play-in game on Friday to qualify for state.

Playoff opener: vs. Orem, Tuesday, 11:10 a.m. (At Weber State)

Best preseason victory: A 61-60 win against Hunter on Dec. 12.

Most important region victory: A 60-55 win against Box Elder on Feb. 15.

Scoring offense: 60.5 ppg (6th in 4A)

Scoring defense: 59.4 ppg (23rd in 4A)

Last state championship: None

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Orem in first round.

Edward’s evaluation: With this team, flip a coin, because consistency is not Logan’s thing. It split with every team in Region 5 except Mountain Crest, and that includes losing its final regular-season game against Bonneville, a team that hadn’t won a league game all year. In wins like Friday’s play-in game against Provo, or earlier strong performances against Bountiful and Hunter in the preseason, Logan has proved it can compete. To compete with No. 1 Orem in the first round, Logan will realistically need to play its best game of the season.

Maple Mountain Golden Eagles (13-9)

2012-2013 Schedule

Coach: Johnny Averett (4th year)

How qualified: Fourth in Region 8 with 7-7 record.

Playoff opener: vs. Mountain Crest, Tuesday, 12:50 p.m. (At Weber State)

Best preseason victory: A 62-52 (2OT) win against Wasatch on Dec. 14.

#25 Spencer Allred, Sr., Center (5.1 ppg, 2.6 rpg)

Scoring offense: 50.5 ppg (22nd in 4A)

Scoring defense: 50.1 ppg (4th in 4A)

Last state championship: None

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Mountain Crest in first round.

Edward’s evaluation: Back in mid-January, Maple Mountain was sitting at 4-1 in Region 8 — including a win over Timpview — and was looking like a pretty intriguing team in the overall 4A picture. The Golden Eagles finished the season with a 3-6 record though, and now open the playoffs against Region 5 champion Mountain Crest, which is a very daunting challenge.

Mountain Crest Mustangs (15-5)

2012-2013 Schedule

Coach: Graydon Buchmiller (3rd year)

How qualified: First in Region 5 with 9-1 record.

Playoff opener: vs. Maple Mountain, Tuesday, 12:50 p.m. (At Weber State)

Scoring offense: 57.1 ppg (11th in 4A)

Scoring defense: 51.2 ppg (6th in 4A)

Last state championship: None

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Orem in semifinals.

Edward’s evaluation: Mountain Crest heads into the playoffs winners of 12 of its last 13 games, and certainly has a favorable draw to make a run at the 4A semifinals. Orem would be waiting in the semis, but the Mustangs are one of the top teams in 4A and should be able to compete with anyone.

Murray Spartans (13-10)

2012-2013 Schedule

Coach: Jason Workman (8th year)

How qualified: Second in Region 7 with 7-3 record.

Playoff opener: vs. East, Tuesday, 9:30 a.m. (At Weber State)

Scoring offense: 57.4 ppg (10th in 4A)

Scoring defense: 56.1 ppg (16th in 4A)

Last state championship: 1996

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to East in first round.

Edward’s evaluation: Playing in the 9:30 a.m. game on the first day of the tournament is always exciting — if you win. For the losing team, the playoff experience is incredibly short. If Murray has any chance of avoiding that sour early exit, it must find a way to slow down East’s Parker Van Dyke. He went off for 30 points in a 69-61 overtime win over Murray earlier this season.

Olympus Titans (16-5)

2012-2013 Schedule

Coach: Matt Barnes (16th year)

How qualified: First in Region 7 with 10-0 record.

Playoff opener: vs. Woods Cross, Tuesday, 7:30 p.m. (At Weber State)

Scoring offense: 56.8 ppg (12th in 4A)

Scoring defense: 47.1 ppg (2nd in 4A)

Last state championship: None

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Bountiful in semifinals.

Edward’s evaluation: With zero returning starters this season, expectations were certainly mixed for last year’s 4A runner-ups. Thanks to the timely move-in of Jake Lindsey — the son of new Utah Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsay — and exceptional defense once again, the Titans are once again in the 4A state title conversation this season. Olympus opens with a Woods Cross team it beat by 24 in the preseason, but after that a tough quarterfinal matchup with Sky View or Timpview awaits.

Orem Tigers (20-3)

2012-2013 Schedule

Coach: Golden Holt (3rd year)

How qualified: First in Region 8 with 13-1 record.

Playoff opener: vs. Play-in winner, Tuesday, 11:10 a.m. (At Weber State)

Scoring offense: 66.9 ppg (1st in 4A)

Scoring defense: 53.3 ppg (12th in 4A)

Last state championship: 2012

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Win over Bountiful in championship game.

Edward’s evaluation: With most of last year’s team back, Orem came into the season as the overwhelming favorite to repeat as 4A state champs. A shoulder injury to Jordan Darger, however, has put a little kink in the armor. The senior hasn’t played since Jan. 15, and even if he returns for the playoffs it will be in a limited role. Don’t be mistaken though, the Tigers are still the favorite to win again, and it’s going to take a near-perfect game for someone to beat them.

Roy Royals (16-6)

2012-2013 Schedule

Coach: Dan McClure (3rd year)

How qualified: Second in Region 5 with 7-3 record.

Playoff opener: vs. Springville, Tuesday, 4:10 p.m. (At Weber State)

Scoring defense: 50.2 ppg (5th in 4A)

Last state championship: None

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Springville in first round.

Edward’s evaluation: When Roy beat Mountain Crest 55-43 on Feb. 8, it seemed at the time like Roy’s coming out party as a 4A state title contender. Since that win though, Roy lost to Logan by 26, narrowly beat Bonneville and then lost to Sky View by 37 points on the final day of the season. That’s not a typo. It lost to Sky View 70-33. The loss was "meaningless" in the big picture, and didn’t hurt Roy’s playoff seed, but only time will tell if Roy’s players are mentally strong enough to block out such an annihilation.

Sky View Bobcats (15-8)

2012-2013 Schedule

Coach: Kirk Hillyard (2nd year)

How qualified: Third in Region 5 with 5-5 record.

Playoff opener: vs. Timpview, Tuesday, 9:10 p.m. (At Weber State)

Scoring defense: 52.8 ppg (10th in 4A)

Last state championship: 1994

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Timpview in first round.

Edward’s evaluation: After a region-opening win over Bonneville on Jan. 11, Sky View owned an 11-2 record and seemed to finally be living up to its high expectations. Inconsistency plagued the Bobcats throughout region play though, as they finished third in Region 5. Good luck finding a more dangerous No. 3 seed in the 4A state tournament. Sky View is coming off a 70-33 victory over Roy, a win that has the potential to snowball into playoff success.

Springville Red Devils (17-4)

2012-2013 Schedule

Coach: Chris Kitchen (9th year)

How qualified: Third in Region 8 with 10-4 record.

Playoff opener: vs. Roy, Tuesday, 4:10 p.m. (At Weber State)

Scoring defense: 51.8 ppg (8th in 4A)

Last state championship: 1958

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Bountiful in quarterfinals.

Edward’s evaluation: Springville enters the playoffs on a four-game winning streak, including a 56-52 win against Timpview on Feb. 15. That victory was Springville’s best win of the season and couldn’t have come at a better time. With Bradley Kitchen and Max Schreiner both averaging around 15 points, the Red Devils are certainly favored to get past Roy in the first round and they’re talented enough to give Bountiful a run for its money in the quarterfinals.

Timpview T-Birds (18-3)

How qualified: Second in Region 8 with 11-3 record.

Last state championship: 2010

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Olympus in quarterfinals.

Edward’s evaluation: Timpview is the only Utah team not named Lone Peak to beat Orem this season, and that alone makes it a dangerous team heading into the 4A playoffs. The T-Birds finished the regular season with the No. 1 scoring defense in 4A and the No. 2 scoring offense. However, a loss at home to Springville in the second-to-last game of the regular season raises some flags for a team with a brutal draw in the state tourney.

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Bountiful in first round.

Edward’s evaluation: Westlake is the only team with a losing record in the 4A playoffs as it enters the postseason as the No. 4 seed from Region 7, the weakest in 4A. That doesn’t bode well heading into the first round against a Bountiful team on an 18-game winning streak.

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Olympus in first round.

Edward’s evaluation: With five returning starters this season, expectations were high for Woods Cross as it was projected to finish second in Region 6. Instead it finished fourth and now must open the playoffs against Region 7 champion Olympus, which it lost to by 24 points earlier this season.
