One word only : WOW !!!
Great job. Take the whole tournament Lone Peak.
I will ask again....why isn't any of the utah media out there live
streaming this game or Broadcasting it. This is probably the biggest thing to
happen to utah High School sports ever...ugh!
I didn't even hear anything about it on the 10 o'clock news.
That's crazy. And who was questioning the legitimacy of them being ranked
1. They have crushing every team they have played. And a lot of those teams were
also ranked. Don't blame Jabari Parker for choosing Duke, but can you
imagine him joining these kids at BYU? That would have been sweet!!
They obviously have great players but to be this dominant against these
nationally ranked teams you have to have good coaching, too. This guy obviously
knows what he is doing. Look how his team is keeping opponents scores so low.
These kids really know how to play defense.
Pretty cool to see a group of kids that have such good chemistry and focus.
They play intense defense and enough cannot be said of how well they are
coached. They play unselfish ball too. Emery hits daggers when he needs to,
Haws is really scrappy and Mika dominates. Then Shumway and Toolson and other
players step up and do a lot of things that people don't notice, but they
are great players too. They are representing the state well.
These kids will be remembered in Utah sports annals for a long time. It's
just too bad that Utah fans can't enjoy watching them compete on a national
I wonder what is different about Long Peak that would make the experts downgrade
their ranking? There must be something different about the players?
Great Job boys, now finish them all off!!! Way to represent UTAH!!! I wish we
could get a live stream or something to watch these boys?!?!?!
Congrats. Have a big fan in AZ. I have to admit I am very impressed. BYU
should be very good when these guys are there and into Rose's system.
Looks like great Chemistry. Teams win games not one player. As much as I wanted
Parker I am not sure he would fit into this team. Can't have one cylinder
out of sync. Keep going Lone Peak. Great for the state of Utah and
Is there any way to watch these games?
let 'em play again--rematch!
If you go to the website for the City Of Palm Classic, then go to the link for
the News-Press Coverage, they have the best coverage I've seen. People
letting people know who, if anyone, is streaming it. There was a typed play by
play for the Chester game.
Kudos to these kids! They deserve the rank with a fitting name (Lone Peak) to
boot! Can't wait to see these guys in Cougar True Blue! ...not that other
devilish blue ...LOL!
Nice job Lone Peak! You guys have worked your rears off and you are
representing your community and your state well!Best of luck on the
remainder of your season!
Cael Sanderson won a high school national championship as have several other
outstanding Utah high school wrestlers. Cael even won four NCAA titles, an
ESPY, went undefeated in college, became an Olympic gold medalist and just led
Penn State to its second straight national title in wrestling. I don't
want to take away anything from Lone Peak accomplishments because this is very
cool, but Utah's wrestlers have been doing a lot nationally for many, many
years in relative obscurity.
Wayne Rout"I wonder what is different about Lone Peak that would
make the experts downgrade their ranking?".I know exactly what
they're thinking. I was watching a basketball movie a while back. I
thought I heard something about "white men can't jump". Well, our
Haouli boys from Lone Peak prove them wrong LOL! Keep up the good work boys. I
am a proud follower.Go all the way.
Sounds like a few of the posters on this thread are a little more giddy about
the fact that the players are white than that they are Utah kids. Sad. Still,
good for Lone Peak and it's great to see HS basketball alive and well in
Utah. Gives hope that the blood sucking club basketball programs haven't
destroyed the sport yet.
If Dastrup signs, the Cougs have a legit shot at a Final Four in about four
Xert"Sounds like a few of the posters on this thread are a
little more giddy about the fact that the players are white than that they are
Utah kids."maybe you should at least wait until a "few"
posters actually post something relevant to your statement before you actually
say it. because right now i only see 1 post that involves them being
white.....and that poster isn't very "giddy" at all
