Roy without star Brekkott Chapman in playoff opener

Roy star forward Brekkott Chapman missed the first round of the Class 4A state tournament for violating team rules.

Royals coach Dan McClure would not go into specifics about the violation but said the length of Chapman’s suspension was to be determined.

The Royals entered the tournament as the No. 1 seed from Region 5, but Chapman’s suspension may deal a large blow to their chances of advancing deep into the tournament.

Roy drew a matchup with Skyline in the first round and trailed the Eagles 29-27 at halftime and clearly missed Chapman’s presence in the post. The winner will advance to face the winner of Springville-Judge Memorial in the quarterfinals.

Chapman, a Utah commit widely considered the top recruit in the state in the Class of 2014, led the Royals to a 10-2 record in Region 5. It was the Royals’ first region title in 20 years.
