Prep basketball notes: Judge girls set record for 3-pointers
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Judge Memorial girls' basketball coach Anthony Alford wasn't even aware his team was making history as it drained 15 3-pointers in Thursday's 83-50 win over West.

"I'm a defensive-minded guy, and I didn't think our defensive rotations were as quick as I would like, so the girls were getting an earful from me," Alford said. "It wasn't until after the game and a manager told him that we even knew we made 15 of them."

According to the Utah High School Activities Association's record book, the 15 3s — sophomore Rachel Shubella had six — shattered the previous record of 12, accomplished by three teams, the last by Kearns in 2000.

"I've never been a part of something like that," Alford said. "I haven't had teams with as good as shooters across the board."

Triple threat

Roy forward Brekkott Chapman is unsure if he's ever recorded a triple-double, but he knows he's certainly come close.

The Utah commit nearly pulled off the feat in Friday's win over Weber, scoring 28 points, grabbing 10 rebounds and blocking seven shots.

Chapman hadn't broken out with a monster game this season after getting his knee scoped and missing the Royals' first game.

"It definitely was really good to get going with something like that," Chapman said. "That's the first time this year."


Friday's American Fork-Bountiful boys' game featured two of the most talented teams in the state. There were four Division I commits on the floor throughout much of the game, in American Fork's Ryan Andrus [BYU] and Tyler Rawson [Southern Utah] and Bountiful's Sam Merrill [Utah State] and Zac Seljaas [BYU].

The opportunity to play in a game packed with that much talent wasn't lost on Merrill, who said both teams will have a say in how their respective classifications shake out.

"American Fork is a great team," Merrill said. "They'll definitely contend in [Class] 5A. That's why we wanted to play them."
