With the impressive record of 10-2 in the regular season, the boys’ basketball team is heading into the playoffs with the second seed from Region 1. The Darts will be facing the Westlake Thunder in their first playoff game on Monday February 24 at Weber State University.
The Thunder have a record of 4-4 in Region 4. Their region could be considered the toughest region in the state, with teams like Lone Peak, American Fork, Pleasant Grove, and Bingham. The Darts should match up against the Thunder very well, because both teams have a lot of talent and the same end goal: making it to the state championship.
The Darts’ starting center KO Fisher says: “We should match up very well with Westlake, but I know that if we play our best we will be able to beat them.”
This game won’t be easy for the Darts, but with their team chemistry and grit, they should be able to go very far into the playoffs.
“In order to beat them, we need to match their physicality, out-rebound them, and do the things that don’t take talent, like working harder” said Jack Rigby.
In order to make their goals of a state championship a reality, the team will need to take it one game at a time, and their main focus right now is beating Westlake in the first round. The Darts tip off Monday at the Dee Events Center at 4:10 P.M.
