Opposing coach scouting report

“Cody was a coaches' nightmare to scout and play against. He is a very unselfish player that can do it all. He has D1 talent right now as a sophomore. He is as good at getting to the basket as anyone I've seen in 2A. Not only can he get to the rim, but also finishes really well. He is a great team player and always put the team first. He could have averaged 20-plus on any given night if he was asked to. His additional strengths are his size, speed, athleticism, pull up jumper and good shooting.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Colby is a guy who likes to push the tempo, he's just as fast in the fourth quarter as he is in the first quarter. He has a high basketball IQ and great court awareness. He makes his teammates around him better. A very productive offensive player, and he can lock up and guard your best player.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Race is an extremely difficult player to guard. He demands attention 30 feet from the basket because of his range. He can beat you with the shot and the pass and can rebound offensively very effectively. He makes big plays with the game on the line. He can face the basket or post up. Very good player. I'm glad to see him graduate. Wish him the best at SUU.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Geno is one of the most athletic players I have seen this year. The first time I watched him play was against West Lake; he stole the pass at the wing and took it the length of the court and slammed it hard. I just looked at my coaching staff and said, "How do you want to guard this guy" He is another versatile weapon on the Wasatch Academy roster.”

5.5 assists per game

2.8 steals per game

Season high

21 points at North Summit on Dec. 7.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Complete player (offensively and defensively) — and just a freshman. Defensively, he will pick up full court M2M and neutralize guards. His size and quickness allows him to get into the paint anytime he wants to. Once in the paint he can elevate and finish. Once he develops a consistent shot from long range, it will be very difficult to stop him. ”

Bailey Faimalo, Emery, 2A First Team

2012-2013 statistics

14.3 points per game

3.0 rebounds per game

5.7 assists per game

2.8 steals per game

Season high

26 points vs. North Sevier on Feb. 12.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Bailey Faimalo is an outstanding player. He is so difficult to guard because he has a great first step and is a great penetrator. If he gets to the basket he can finish or make great decisions passing the ball. He also is a very good outside shooter so if you respect his dribble penetration, he will stick a three on you. He is exceptionally quick and athletic, jumps well and has very good vision. Great point guard and leader. Tough kid.”

Austin Clark, South Sevier, 2A First Team

Senior, 6-4, forward

2012-2013 statistics

15.6 points per game

6.4 rebounds per game

2.7 assists per game

1.4 steals per game

Season high

26 points vs. Emery on Jan. 25 and at San Juan on Feb. 1.

Opposing coach scouting report

“He is a very versatile player that is a tough matchup. He is a very complete player. He has a great variety of post moves and he is also a very good shooter. He can pull up in transition or take you off the dribble and pull up. He is a player that understands when to pass the ball to an open teammate. Defensively his length causes a lot of problems. He anticipates well and has the quickness to jump passing lanes. He is a great rebounder.”

6.0 rebounds per game

5.5 assists per game

3.7 steals per game

Season high

38 points at Millard on Dec. 12.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Lefty and crafty, but very talented. Very good ball handler with a great crossover. Once he gets into the paint on the drive he is very creative with his shot and passing ability. He lit us up every game we played against him. He can step outside and hit the 3 as well. The amazing thing about Dakota is the pace he plays at. It seems relaxed and slow but by the end of the game he has 30+”

Past all-state honors

2012 — 2A Second Team

Insa Kaba, Wasatch Academy, 2A Second Team

Senior, 6-8, center

2012-2013 statistics

8.0 points per game

5.1 rebounds per game

0.5 assists per game

0.2 steals per game

Season high

15 points vs. Layton Christian on Feb. 9.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Everyone knows about Wasatch Academy's guards, but our team built a game plan around Insa. We gave up open 3s to help stop him in the middle. He is big and strong but he has great footwork and nice hands. He would have scored 25 points and pulled down 20 rebounds every night if his teammates wouldn't have been such good shots. He is definitely a big reason why Wasatch Academy won the state title.”

Beau Rydalch, South Summit, 2A Second Team

Junior, 6-5, forward

2012-2013 statistics

13.3 points per game

Season high

24 points vs. North Summit on Feb. 8.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Beau is a sharp shooting big guy who can play both inside and outside. The team's offense revolves around him. He is very quick for his size and plays excellent defense. I think he leads the team in rebound and block.”

Senior, 6-5, forward

2012-2013 statistics

8.7 points per game

Season high

18 points at Summit Academy on Nov. 28.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Nik has all the tools needed to be successful. He is excellent around the basket and has great touch from the outside. As a 6-foot-5 big man he can hurt you in many different ways. He is quick enough that you would have to put a smaller quicker defender on him, but if you do that then he will just post you up. His solid frame allows him to be a great force inside. He is an excellent offensive rebounder and was used in many different ways on their way to a great season and 2nd place finish in state.”

1.0 steals per game

Season high

39 points vs. Desert Oasis, Nev., on Dec. 7.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Justin Prisbrey is a player that is a matchup nightmare because of his outside and inside presence. He is a player that can knock down a fifteen footer, he penetrates very well and elevates and finishes around the basket.”

Momo Diop, Wasatch Academy, 2A Third Team

Senior, 6-2, forward

2012-2013 statistics

5.7 points per game

5.0 rebounds per game

1.1 assists per game

1.5 steals per game

Season high

13 points vs. Weber on Dec. 21.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Momo is a big strong guard who can take it to the hole but also has a sweet shot. He is a hustle player who is going to aggressively guard you. When you play Wasatch Academy and you game plan for Cody, Insa or Koby and you forget about a guy like Momo, your team is in trouble because he will light it up.”

Joel Martinez, Merit Academy, 2A Third Team

Junior, 6-5, forward

2012-2013 statistics

16.7 points per game

Season high

31 points vs. Summit Academy on Dec. 21.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Joel has guard skills with big man body. He's got the best low post moves of any post player i've seen this season. When he catches it on the block you're in trouble because he is so quick and can score with either hand. He is the go to guy for Merit and a big part of their success.”

Ashton Richards, Summit Academy, 2A Third Team

Senior, 6-2, guard

2012-2013 statistics

10.9 points per game

Season high

31 vs. Beaver on Feb. 16.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Ashton did not play particularly well against us but when he gets hot, he can take over the game as demonstrated in state tournament against Beaver. If I remember correctly, he is a lefty and elevates high to shoot 3s. He is a tenacious defender.”

33 points at Gunnison on Dec. 21.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Justin is a very quick point guard for the Parowan Rams. He has tremendous leadership qualities that helped his team be successful. He is an outstanding three point shooter with great range. Justin can also get to the hoop and has a great pull up jumper. Justin would do anything to help his team win and has left a lasting impression on the program at Parowan High School.”

Rashaan Griffin, Summit Academy, 2A Third Team

Junior, 6-2, guard

2012-2013 statistics

14.8 points per game

Season high

33 points vs. Waterford on Jan. 16.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Rashaan is such an explosive player who can score from any distance and angle on the floor. He is a strong and physical defender who is too big for small players and too quick for big players. He was the team leader of Summit Academy's success this year.”

Dawsen Jensen, Emery, 2A Third Team

Senior, 6-6, center

2012-2013 statistics

11.6 points per game

6.3 rebounds per game

Season high

22 points at Millard on Dec. 5.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Is a big strong player that rebounds exceptionally well and is a reliable scoring threat around the basket as well as facing up at 15 feet. In addition, his size inside defensively makes Emery's 2-3 zone very effective as it allows the perimeter players to pressure the ball knowing that Dawsen is inside to protect the basket. Dawsen is an outstanding player both offensively and defensively.”
