Scoring offense: 62.9 ppg (6th in 5A)

Scoring defense: 50 ppg (1st in 5A)

Last state championship: 2010

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Pleasant Grove in quarterfinals

Phibbs’ prognostications: Alta might be the deepest team in the classification this season with an ability to attack from multiple angles — inside and out. However, its strength resides on the defensive end of the floor. The Hawks are extremely senior-heavy, and should be the favorite to end Lone Peak’s run of state titles after falling short in the championship game last season.

American Fork Cavemen (15-8)

Coach: Doug Meacham

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

Playoff opener: vs. Viewmont, Tuesday, 4:15 p.m. (at University of Utah)

Best preseason victory: A 57-35 win against Viewmont on Jan. 4

Most important region victory: A 63-56 win against Pleasant Grove on Feb. 25

Scoring defense: 52.5 ppg (2nd in 5A)

Last state championship: 1979 (3A)

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Pleasant Grove in semifinals

Phibbs’ prognostications: American Fork is as talented of a third seed as you’ll find in the tournament. Two solid post players and a lights-out defender can lead to several victories come tourney time.

Bingham Miners (11-9)

Coach: Jake Schroeder

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

Playoff opener: vs. West, Tuesday, 9:30 a.m. (at University of Utah)

Best preseason victory: A 65-61 (OT) win against Herriman on Dec. 10

Most important region victory: A 63-48 win against Copper Hills on Jan. 17

Scoring defense: 60.1 ppg (14th in 5A)

Last state championship: 2006

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Lone Peak in quarterfinals

Phibbs’ prognostications: Bingham should make it out of the first round with ease, but after the opening round its defense will be its downfall.

Brighton Bengals (11-13)

Coach: Jeff Gardner

How qualified: Tied for fourth in Region 3 with 4-6 record.

Playoff opener: vs. Taylorsville, Tuesday, at 5:45 p.m. (at University of Utah)

Best preseason victory: A 58-48 win against Hunter on Jan. 10

Last state championship: 1996

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

Phibbs’ prognostications: Brighton is the most likely team to record a major upset in the first round. Despite entering with a losing record, the Bengals match up favorably against Taylorsville.

Copper Hills Grizzlies (13-8)

Coach: Andrew Blanchard

How qualified: Third in Region 3 with 6-4 record

Playoff opener: vs. Hunter, Tuesday, at 3:30 p.m. (at University of Utah)

Best preseason victory: A 62-50 win against Lehi on Dec. 11

Most important region victory: A 84-61 win against Alta on Feb. 14

#11 Porter Hawkins, So, Center (7.2 ppg, 3.4 rpg)

#13 Zac Hoffman, Sr., Guard (6.1 ppg, 2.0 rpg)

Scoring offense: 61.7 ppg (9th in 5A)

Scoring defense: 55.8 ppg (8th in 5A)

Last state championship: 2000

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

Phibbs’ prognostications: Copper Hills is as talented as it is young. The Grizzlies have the ability to play with anyone, as evidenced by their shellacking of Alta, but they also have an ability to flatline with inexperience.

Davis Darts (19-2)

Coach: Jay Welk

How qualified: First in Region 1 with 11-1 record

Playoff opener: vs. Herriman, Tuesday, 12:45 p.m. (at University of Utah)

Best preseason victory: A 83-68 win against Olympus on Dec. 10

Most important region victory: A 46-35 win against Layton on Jan. 31

Scoring offense: 67.5 ppg (4th in 5A)

Scoring defense: 53.3 ppg (5th in 5A)

Last state championship: 2002

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Lone Peak in semifinals

Phibbs’ prognostications: For whatever reason, Davis hasn’t generated as much publicity as several other teams in 5A. Beware. The Darts might have the best backcourt in the state along with another athletic post player, which the program has produced throughout the years.

Herriman Mustangs (12-10)

Coach: Brad Tingey

How qualified: Tied for fourth in Region 4 with 5-7 record

Playoff opener: vs. Davis, Tuesday, 12:45 p.m. (at University of Utah)

Best preseason victory: A 56-50 win against Copper Hills on Dec. 6

Most important region victory: A 63-51 win against Riverton on Feb. 28

#20 Jake Sutton, So., F/C (5.7 ppg, 4.5 rpg)

Scoring offense: 62.2 ppg (8th in 5A)

Scoring defense: 60.1 ppg (14th in 5A)

Last state championship: None

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

Phibbs’ prognostications: Herriman is an interesting opponent as a No. 4 seed because of Maynard’s ability to score. The Mustangs have challenged several upper-echelon teams this season. Davis is certainly one of those.

Hillcrest Huskies (7-14)

Coach: Sam Richins

How qualified: Tied for third in Region 2 with 4-6 record

Playoff opener: vs. Alta, Tuesday, 7:30 p.m. (at University of Utah)

Scoring defense: 61.9 ppg (18th in 5A)

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

Phibbs’ prognostications: The Huskies will need a massive game from Means if they expect to stay close with Alta.

Hunter Wolverines (10-12)

Coach: Dave Filimoehala

How qualified: Second in Region 2 with 7-3 record.

Playoff opener: vs. Copper Hills, Tuesday, 2:30 p.m. (at University of Utah)

Scoring offense: 58.2 ppg (16th in 5A)

Scoring defense: 57.3 ppg (13th in 5A)

Last state championship: 2004

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Copper Hills in first round

Phibbs’ prognostications: Hunter is virtually a one-man show, and because of that it’ll struggle against the balance of Copper Hills.

Layton Lancers (16-7)

Coach: Kelby Miller

How qualified: Third in Region 1 with 8-4 record

Playoff opener: vs. Pleasant Grove, Tuesday, 9:15 p.m. (at University of Utah)

#20 Caleb Harrop, Sr., Guard (4.8 ppg, 2.1 rpg, 1.5 apg)

Scoring offense: 61.5 ppg (tied 10th in 5A)

Scoring defense: 53 ppg (4th in 5A)

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Pleasant Grove in first round

Phibbs’ prognostications: Layton has been up and down this season, but never as high as the final game of the regular season when it handed Davis its first region loss of the season. If the Lancers can continue the strong play they’ll be a tough out.

Lone Peak Knights (19-3)

Coach: Quincy Lewis

How qualified: First in Region 4 with 11-1 record

Playoff opener: vs. Syracuse, Tuesday, 11:15 a.m. (at University of Utah)

Scoring defense: 56 ppg (10th in 5A)

Last state championship: 2013

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Win over Pleasant Grove in championship

Phibbs’ prognostications: Three straight. The only explanation needed. Lone Peak is the premier program in the state of Utah. Until the Knights lose in the state tournament they’re the obvious favorite.

Pleasant Grove Vikings (20-3)

Coach: Randy McAllister

How qualified: Second in Region 4 with 10-2 record

Playoff opener: vs. Layton, Tuesday, 9:15 p.m. (at University of Utah)

Scoring defense: 60.9 ppg (15th in 5A)

Last state championship: 1961

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Lone Peak in championship

Phibbs’ prognostications: This is arguably the best opportunity for Pleasant Grove to end its title drought behind the talented trio of Conway, Court and Pincock. The Vikings already topped Lone Peak, which ended its in-state winning streak.

Syracuse Titans (9-13)

Coach: Troy Anderson

How qualified: Fourth in Region 1 with 6-6 record.

Playoff opener: vs. Lone Peak, Tuesday, 11:15 p.m. (at University of Utah)

Last state championship: None

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Lone Peak in first round

Phibbs’ prognostications: Syracuse managed to finish an even .500 in a tough Region 1, which it can hang its hat on. The odds of the Titans knocking off Lone Peak, however, are slim to none.

Taylorsville Warriors (18-5)

Coach: Jim Boyce

How qualified: First in Region 2 with 10-0 record

Playoff opener: vs. Brighton, Tuesday, 5:45 p.m. (at University of Utah)

Last state championship: None

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to American Fork in quarterfinals

Phibbs’ prognostications: Taylorsville is very difficult to analyze. Did the Warriors benefit from a downtrodden Region 2? Or are they for real? Either way Freeman is a lightning-quick guard and could give opposing teams fits.

Viewmont Vikings (15-7)

Coach: Jeff Emery

How qualified: Second in Region 1 with 10-2 record

Playoff opener: vs. American Fork, Tuesday, 4:15 p.m. (at University of Utah)

Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to American Fork in first round

Phibbs’ prognostications: Viewmont is in a tough position against American Fork. The Vikings already lost by 22 earlier this season to the Cavemen. Have things changed or is a quick exit waiting?

West Panthers (8-14)

Coach:

How qualified: Tied for third in Region 2 with 4-6 record

Playoff opener: vs. Bingham, Tuesday, 9:30 a.m. (at University of Utah)

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

Phibbs’ prognostications: West has the lowest per-game average on offense in the entire 5A classification. Needless to say, if the Panthers have any hope of advancing into the quarterfinals, they’ll need to pick up several key stops along the way.
