Great game. Congrats to Brighton. The LP team is very young with two freshman
starting. This Emery freshman point guard is awesome. I would go to just watch
him play. Pederson is very good as well, but they need others to step up if
they are going to compete in this conference.
The comment "Welcome to Region 4" is most appropriate. Look at the scores for
the other region 4 games last night. LP is a young team - but very talented and
will be very good in years to come. They gave Brighton a great test last night.
Congrats to the Bengals for continuing to battle and make plays down the
stretch to win. Welcome to Region 4!
Definitely hurt lone peak not having Hamilton but can't take anything away from
Brighton. They took advantage of the weaknesses. Welcome to region 4!!
Lone Peak is missing their best post player in Hamilton. It definitely hurt
them last night and I here he will be out for at least a month and maybe for the
year. Lone Peak will not be a factor in the region or state without Hamilton,
they are young and have no depth. Too bad Knights, catch you next year!!!
Emery shoots every time he touches the ball. The other players just stand
around and watch. Region 4 will figure it out and stop Emery, because he won't
pass. Lone Peak is finally playing the big boys and they won't dominate.
You are right about Emery. He must have put up 22 shots last night and while he
was hot from the 3 point line he shot about 30% overall. No doubt he is an
amazing talent but better shot selction and more passing would make him a better
Lone Peak only starts one freshman...they have another one that gets some time
but he does not start.
Welcome to Brighton's world. Emery is your version of Corbin Miller. As soon as
he crosses half court he thinks he's open. He shot Brighton out of the game the
first three quarters but then picked up the 4th. When they decided to sit him
for awhile, guess who they put in...little brother who is also a freshman but no
near the caliber of Emery. Meanwhile, there were 3 seniors sitting on the bench
who are better. Brighton's senior class is deep and they have an outstanding
record over the course of their high school career and before. How on earth did
they win all of those games without Brandon Miller. It's a miracle. I hope all
the scouts who have come watch Brighton play this year realize that Sam Wunderli
is the reason for Brighton's success.
I've heard a lot worse. He shot 8-18, not near 30% and not quite 22 shots. He
averages 4 assists per game which is pretty good, especially when there aren't
many other options for scoring besides Pedersen. Hamilton should be back for
the American fork game on the 20th, and if that's the case, they will definitely
be in the hunt for the region championship, and even without him, they took
Brighton, who most think is the best team in the region to the wire at their
place. How are they out of it?
thats an interesting comment considering Lone Peak has been the big boy since
coming into 5A and winning half the state championships while Brighton is always
the one watching from the stands come Saturday.. (anyone remember the domination
LP put on them in 07, then the choke job against Bingham in 08?) Nowhere to be
found last year... When games in january determine who hold the trophy in march,
come find me. Cause i'll be sitting in the cheap sits with everyone else
affiliated with brighton
Weird how Lone Peaks first loss this year is met with comments "they wont
dominate"... who expects them to? They're the youngest team in the state, lost
without their only true post, and also are playing with ZERO returning starters.
So i ask again, who expects them to dominate? I dare say it'll be a
different story at home with Hamilton back. Last time Quincy Lewis lost to the
same team twice in one year? 2005 (which by the way is the only time in his
career.) Good luck comin down to Lone Peak and winning, even though Lone Peak
Everyone has an opinion. Most of these are opinion's of parents whose kids are
not playing. Get over yourselves...
No doubt!! Get a job all you bloggers and please watch more hoop before
wertz needs more playing time period. He's shown what he can do when given
Wertz and the other seniors should no doubt be playing ahead of Corbin Millers
little brother. The Miller kid needs to prove himself first at the sphomore
level if he does then he should get a little jv time, which is great as a
freshman. At this point he just isn't big and strong enough to play at the
varsity level, however Nick Emery is a different story he is a once in a
lifetime player for the state of Utah. Quincy Lewis has said the Nick Emery is
way ahead of Tyler Haws when Tyler was a freshman.
LP will be just fine this year. They will start their state run again next year
with Emery and TJ Haws at the guard line, Hamilton in the middle. Next year LP
could start one freshman, three sophmores and Hamilton. What fun for the next
couple of years!!
See you next week Brighton!
