3A boys’ basketball: Cedar City, Morgan to play for title

Hometown Cedar, a 4th seed, to face the defending champs.

< Previous Page

After all, the Trojans seem to be looking to steal the ball on every play, every possession and every full-court press. They are relentless. And the pressure eventually gets to teams.

That’s what happened in the second quarter Friday. Payson held an 18-13 lead when Morgan went on a 13-0 run. The Lions never seemed to recover as the Trojans just kept up the pressure. Payson cut the lead to 52-42 with 3:01 to play, but never really threatened.

Veteran Morgan Coach Jim Wiscombe said he picks starters often on the basis of their ability to defend. The Trojans employ fullcourt pressure constantly.

He was excited for a chance to play for a second straight title.

"It’s almost near impossible to repeat, unless you’re Lone Peak and have got those big studs," said Wiscombe. "For a school like us to repeat, well....We’re not there, but we had a taste of it last year. We are going to try to get back."

Garren Miles led senior-dominated Morgan with 21 points while Ben Saunders added 15. Daniel Reno had 21 for the Region 12 champion Lions, who finished the season with a 18-7 record.
