35 points vs. Bonanza, Nev. on Dec. 14.

Opposing coach scouting report

“He has the size and athletic ability to play every position on the floor, making him a huge matchup problem for us. He can handle and pass the ball like a point guard, shoot the 3 as good as any shooting guard, and then run the floor and score in transition as good as any wing we played against. If you try to stop any of these, he beats you at the post and the free-throw line. He is a very fundamental kid and works extremely hard. He looks to get his teammates involved as he has those leadership qualities that have helped his team be successful. A real prototype of a high school basketball player, the kind every coach would love to have on his team.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“I would say Koby McEwen is the most athletic player in 2A this year. He is a complete player and just a sophomore. The sky is the limit for this kid. It will be fun to see how far basketball will take him. As a coach, you just don't see players of his caliber at his age. I could find a place for him on my team.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“We tried to go after him as much as possible because he could hurt you. He could hurt you off the dribble, and our best defender struggled at times staying in front of him. He can create. If he’s making his jump shot he’s really hard to guard. I like his game. Our guys have respect for him. He can shoot it, he can get to the basket. I think he can play small college basketball.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Geno is hands down the best overall player in 2A and likely the best in the state. In my opinion, he still has another gear to shift to, but he is too nice and polite to go full speed. If he did, he would be scary good — offensively and defensively.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“He was there when (Race) Parsons was there, so he understands about winning. He’s a tough kid. They put him at the free-throw line and we struggled to match up against him. They kind of played him at the four against us. His ability to turn around and score off the dribble off that free-throw line was a killer for us. He’s very athletic. I didn’t know he was that athletic. I like his game. He understands how to win.”

34 points vs. Grand on Feb. 18

Opposing coach scouting report

“Whenever we prepared to play Emery, one of our top concerns was dealing with Dillon and his quick first step on offense. Dillon demands attention defensively because of the pressure he puts on a defense both with his penetration, as well as his ability to shoot the ball from the outside.”

1.7 assists per game

1.3 steals per game

23 points vs. American Leadership on Jan. 31.

Opposing coach scouting report

“A tough player to guard as he will post you up some and can step out and hit the 3. His range is a good 3 feet behind the arc, so you must locate him. He is a guy that will get some work done on the glass, so you must get a body on him.”

3.3 rebounds per game

2.6 assists per game

1.8 steals per game

Season high

28 points vs. American Leadership on Jan. 15 and Summit Academy on Jan. 17.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Kaz is a very talented basketball player. He has range and can also get to the hoop off the dribble, which makes him a defender's nightmare. It's Kaz's fierce competitiveness, however, that sets him apart from his peers. He has a will to win and will work as hard as he can for his team.”


Christian Musoko, Layton Christian

2A Second Team

Senior, 6-8, Center

2013-2014 statistics

13.7 point per game

Season high

27 points vs. North Sevier on Dec. 7.

Opposing coach scouting report

“I believe Musoko is one of those players that will hurt any team on both sides of the court, especially on the rebounds. When he catches underneath the basket he is unstoppable. Musoko is a leader on and off the floor. He is a great example of good sportsmanship. He has the attitude and physical capabilities to play on any Division I college in the state. He uses his right and left hook underneath the basket, making him very difficult to guard. He uses his athleticism to block shots and play good defense underneath the rim.”

41 points vs. Juab on Dec. 17.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Is Millard's go-to guy. When they need a basket, they are looking for him to deliver. Very good off of a one- or two-bounce move and pull-up jumper. They will also post him up on occasions. He will relentlessly attack the glass at both ends of the floor. He is a player to handle with one defender, so be prepared to use multiple players on him.”

27 points vs. Layton Christian on Jan. 15.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Joel definitely emerged as one of the most effective big men in 2A this season. He could hurt you in a variety of ways, so it made it very difficult to contain his impact on the game. Joel's size and athleticism allowed him to be very active in the paint, and his range extended out to the 3-point line. He also played with a great deal of passion and toughness each time we faced him this year. Congrats to Joel on a great season!”

40 points vs. Millard on Jan. 23.

Opposing coach scouting report

“Logan Smith from Delta is one of the best 2A guards there is. He has the quickest first step to the basket of anyone that I have seen. He moves at lighting speed from north to south, and can sidestep anyone in his way. When he does get by the first defensive man, he will always finish strong at the rim and often get a 3-point play the old fashioned way. He is crafty on defense with a great feel for where the ball is going to be, many times putting himself in a position for the steal. He is the floor general for his team and everything runs through him. Every coach would love to have Logan as their point guard.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Cameron is an outstanding player and would be an asset to any team. His ability to penetrate into the key and finish at the rim makes him difficult to stop offensively. He also is deadly as a post-up player. His offensive skills make him a tough matchup for any defender. On the defensive end, Smith took on some of 2A's best athletes and stepped up to the challenge by limiting their offensive output.”

Opposing coach scouting report

“Colton Barton from Parowan is a great 3-point sharpshooter. If you leave Colton open for just a second he will make you pay. You need to dedicate your best defensive man to try and contain him. He is a smart basketball player and doesn't make mistakes. He also is a hard-nose defensive player and is always looking for a steal that will be converted to an easy layup on the other side of the court. Coaches wish they had players like Colton on their team.”
