Opposing coach scouting report

“In my opinion Nick Emery has had about as good of a four-year run as anyone in high school basketball. He has been the focus of every opponent’s defensive game plan and has still managed to lead his team to three state championships. He has unbelievable range with his jump shot, but is equally good going to the basket. Most impressive is his self-confidence and will-to-win attitude. Like him or not, he is a winner."

Opposing coach scouting report

“TJ is one of the toughest matchups in the state. His game continues to evolve at a pace that makes him almost impossible to contain. He has great range on his 3-point shot. If you take that away, he is explosive off the dribble and can finish at the rim. If you take away his ability to get to the rim, he is one of the best passers I've seen in the state. The scary thing is that he is only a junior and we have to deal with him next year.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Eric plays with a relentless tenacity that you don't often find with bigs or for that matter any basketball player. He simply goes hard every play and is the beneficiary of so many extra effort plays. He added a confidence to his team that allowed players to shoot a little more carefree knowing that he most likely was going to give them a second chance. You mix his size, skill, athleticism and work ethic, (and) you have one of the most dominant players I've seen in my 15 years of coaching high school basketball.”

1.8 steals per game

1.5 assists per game

Season high

39 points vs. Copper Hills on Jan. 22.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Brandon Miller is exactly what you think a Division I college basketball player should be. First and foremost, he makes everyone around him better. Whether it is by penetrating and giving an assist for an easy shot or simply taking so much of the other team's attention that the game becomes easier for all of his teammates — he does it. Anyone who follows high school basketball knows that Brandon is one of the best young shooters in this state. However, as admirable as that skill is, we were always as impressed with how Brandon carried himself exactly like a great player/leader should. I cannot recall ever seeing him during his very successful high school career complaining to refs, trash-talking opponents, or bickering with his own teammates. Whether it was a big win or a tough loss, he remained tough, competitive and classy.”

37 points at Roy on Nov. 27.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Hayden was the catalyst on a team that hadn't won a region championship since 1997. His scoring opportunities were created through aggressive defense and the ability to get to the basket and free-throw line. Hayden was difficult to guard due to his quickness, strength and high basketball IQ. He created scoring opportunities for his teammates through his ability to get into the lane and finish at the basket or kick out to his teammates for wide-open shots”

25 points vs. Davis on Feb. 27.

Opposing coach scouting report

“You always knew you were going to have your work cut out for you when you would prepare for a team's fourth or fifth option, but you know that on any other team he would be a No. 1 or 2 option. Talon was a jack of all trades. He just did whatever his team needed him to do, whether it was guarding the opponent's best player, making the hustle plays to give his team extra possessions, scoring 20 points or making the extra pass and not scoring at all. He was the consummate team player.”

38 points at West on Feb. 8.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Dayon has really developed into one of the top players in the state of Utah this year. He is a great athlete that can really run the floor and play above the rim. I was impressed with his improvement as a defender this year. He really did a nice job of protecting the rim for his team and made it difficult to get easy shots at the rim. As talented as Dayon is as a high school basketball player, I think he could develop into a really special college player as he continues to get stronger. He certainly has all the tools and skills to be very good at the next level.”

4.6 rebounds per game

1.5 steals per game

Season high

31 points against American Fork on Jan. 4.

Opposing coach scouting report

“He is their best defender, rebounder, and he scores on lobs and post-ups. His mid-range game is good. He gets to the line, and has become a much better 3-point shooter. He is a matchup nightmare for every team. You play him small and his strength will get you in foul trouble and he gets to the rim. You go big against him and he runs right around you or knocks down the 3. You try to zone Syracuse and not only does Diante knock down shots, but he gets his teammates open looks as well.”

1.2 steals per game

Season high

23 points vs. West Jordan on Jan. 22.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Alta started the season with every coach in Region 3 knowing it would be good, but the progress of its young players from the previous season would probably determine just how good. Trevor Hill answered those questions pretty early in the season and appeared to just keep getting better as the season went along. As an opponent, we knew coming in that Trevor would be a good defender and penetrator, but he showed all season long that his ability to shoot, his calm leadership style, and his assertiveness had taken him from the level of being a pretty good high school player to being a difference maker. Adding dramatically improved shooting and assertiveness offensively to possibly the best perimeter defensive player in Region 3 already, Trevor Hill turned himself into a special high school player with a very bright future.”

1.4 steals per game

Season high

28 points vs. Campbell County, Wyo. on Dec. 29.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Abel Porter is an opposing coach’s nightmare. He comes at you in so many ways. He can shoot the 3. He has a great mid-range pull up game. And he can get to the rim and finish very well. He is so tough to guard. He is a great playmaker in transition and maybe the quality I admire the most was just that. ... He is a playmaker. He is not just a scorer, but he is willing and very capable of finding the open guy when the defense collapses. It is a special quality for a player that possesses so much individual talent to be unselfish enough to get his teammates involved. He is such a great decision maker. He seems to have an uncanny ability to know when the best shot was his, and when someone else had a better one. In playing against him the last two years, I have the feeling that whenever he shoots it, it is going in. He just doesn’t take bad shots. He is a great defender and a very respectful young man. I love the way that he plays, and the way he handles himself. He is a great player that conducts himself with class.”

22 points vs. Archbishop Mitty, Calif. on Jan. 21.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Connor was an underrated player on his team who has the ability to go for 40 on a given night. Connor seemed to play at a high maturity level where he let the game come to him, which made him so valuable to his team. He didn't try to do more than he could and simply has a knack for making shots. Nothing seemed to rattle him and he seemed to be quietly waiting for his moments on the floor and he made the most of them when it counted”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Preston was the type of player that you had to play honest and make sure that your best defender was guarding. He was a threat to drive or shoot and even added a post-up game this year for an undersized team. He was a fierce competitor and always played the game the right way.”

26 points vs. Bountiful on Nov. 27.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Has made exceptional improvement over the past year. He is a surprisingly skilled big guy. He can score on the block or just off the post. He is capable of making face-up 15-foot shots also. He will look to block shots, leaving his man and helping other defenders on his team. He has good hands and though he is thin still manages to score tough hoops around the basket.”

“He is a good 3-point shooter with the ability to get to the rim. He uses shot fakes well for step-back 3s. He is athletic, strong and can take contact. He has the ability to raise his level of play against the best in the state. He oftentimes will get down the court to the corner in early offense. You must find him on the change of possession quick.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Very good around the basket. His movements are unorthodox and keep you off balance as a defender. When you think you have him figured out, he surprises you with other things you didn't think he could do.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Jarom is a natural leader on the court that has the ability to create his own shot, take you off the dribble or post his man up because of his size and quickness. His jumping ability and strength is what makes him a good rebounder. He can also pass the ball very well. We felt like we needed to take away as many touches as we could from him and let others try and beat us. ”

“A player that is beyond his years in terms of basketball awareness. Very skilled player that is good off the dribble, has a great jump shot, and can defend some of the best players in our region.

Opposing coach scouting report

“He presented a difficult challenge from a defensive standpoint because he has NBA range, a solid post-up game, and his shot release is so compact and quick. He was stronger physically this year and surprised us by how well he used his body to score in a variety of ways inside the paint. A coach's nightmare to defend.”
