Region 9 hoops: Tonight’s match-ups

Tonight’s Region 9 games


Desert Hills (2-1) at Dixie (2-0), 7 p.m. at the Hangar
Broadcast: ESPN Radio 106.1 FM

Desert-Hills-smCoach: Wade Turley
Record: 2-1 overall, 0-0 in region
Streak: 2 wins
PPG: 60.3
PAPG: 52.3
Probable starters: Taylor Houston, Quincy Matthews, Brycen Williams, Trey Tanner, Jordan Hokanson

dixie-smCoach: Ryan Cuff
Record: 2-0 overall, 0-0 in region
Streak: 2 wins
PPG: 57.0
PAPG: 40.0
Probable starters: RJ Wilgar, Sam Guymon, Harrison Labrum, Jake Hawes, Jake Christiansen

Game outlook: Pretty darn early for a key region game, but here it is. Dixie’s at home, so that helps, but every starter has significant varsity experience for the Thunder, while the Flyers are young and green. Matthews has been great so far, averaging 14 ppg and 6 rpg. Wilgar has been good for Dixie as well.


Hurricane (0-3) at Pine View (2-0), 7 p.m. at the Pit
Broadcast: KDXU-890 AM

hurricane-smCoach: Todd Langston
Record: 0-3 overall, 0-0 in region
Streak: 19 losses
PPG: 42.7
PAPG: 55.6
Probable starters: Kayden Langston, Jayce Housley, Cody LeBaron, Austen Beatty, Erik Mitchell

Pine-view-smCoach: Darrell Larsen
Record: 2-0 overall, 0-0 in region
Streak: 4 wins
PPG: 77.5
PAPG: 56.5
Probable starters: Chaz Peterson, Jack Bangerter, Kody Wilstead, Collin Dowdell, Ryan Koller

Game outlook: Pine View’s new system of pressing and running is looking good, but the region wars are a whole different animal than the preseason. No doubt, PV will try and run Hurricane out of the gym tonight. Meanwhile, Langston and the Tigers have struggled a bit offensively, but take pride in their defense.
