Class 5A

1. Lone Peak • Great showing in Myrtle Beach, but still too reliant on the 3-pointer

2. West Jordan • Taking a break while the teams around it are getting tournament experience

3. American Fork • Still doesn’t have an in-state loss, and is attacking zone defenses better

4. Weber • None of their wins are eye-popping, but Warriors are keeping consistent

5. Riverton • They’re a bit hot-or-cold, but beating West Jordan is a promising sign

Class 4A

1. Orem • It will be telling to see how Tigers come off long holiday break

2. Sky View • Jalen Moore is coming into his own this year as a scorer

3. Highland • On a five-game winning streak as they get toward a tough region

4. Mountain Crest • Ripped off a good string of wins, including over Weber

5. Springville • Has yet to beat a 4A team, but there’s a good track record here

Class 3A

1. Desert Hills • Two overtime games in preseason should pay dividends later

2. Payson • Went only 2-2 in California, but didn’t get blown out by anybody

3. Cedar • Losses to Skyline and Westlake humbled Cedar a bit

4. Carbon • Jordan Blanc leads the team in scoring and rebounds

5. Park City • Finished its preseason strong with three straight wins

Class 2A

1. South Sevier • Rams have proven they can knock just about any team

2. Wasatch Academy • Weber gave them their first taste of defeat last week

3. Richfield • Earned a surprisingly gritty win over Parowan

4. Waterford • Seth Monson has stepped up after Eric Mika’s departure

5. Gunnison • Lost to Millard by one, but played South Sevier close

Class 1A

1. Piute • Have yet to lose to a 1A team, and beat Duchesne and Bryce Valley

2. Duchesne • Solid and balanced, the Eagles should tear up their region

3. Manila • Tigers return from a long break with a tough region game against Duchesne

4. Panguitch • Tyce Barney a serious nightly double-double threat

5. Bryce Valley • Allowed Piute’s Tyler Dalton to walk all over them
