Kind of a mixed bag for local boys basketball teams last week, with unbeaten Davis having time off and Viewmont playing four times.


The Vikings started the holiday week with a lopsided 85-43 loss to Olympus on Dec. 28. The Titans led 36-19 at half and steadily pulled away. Radek Pulsipher had 10 points, including two three-pointers, and Scott Noel had 8 with eight rebounds.

Viewmont rebounded on Dec. 29 with a 77-74 win over Skyline. Teams were tied at 35-all at half, but the Vikings outscored the Eagles 22-18 in the third quarter and marched on for the win. Zach Robison had 23 points, including four treys, Noel added 19 and Pulsipher 18. 

The Vikings defeated Park City 63-52 on Dec. 30, scoring a 35-25 second half advantage for the win. Robison and Noel each scored 20 points, and Noel had 12 rebounds. 

On New Year’s Eve, Viewmont dropped a 64-53 decision to Murray. The Spartans led 37-27 at half and the Vikings couldn’t overcome the margin. Pulsipher had 20 points, Robison 12 and Noel 11 for Viewmont, which is now 5-7 on the season.

Woods Cross

The Wildcats lost 58-54 to Salem Hills on Dec. 29. Jaxon Smith scored 21 to lead Woods Cross, including three 3-pointers. Nic Hogan and Mason Bendinger added 9 each, and Hogan had 10 rebounds.

Cyprus bested the Wildcats 79-63 on Dec. 30, running off with a 54-35 advantage in the second half. Zach Delange led Woods Cross with 19 and Bendinger added 14.

But the year ended on a positive note on Dec. 31 with a 79-67 win over West Jordan. Bendinger scored 23 and Smith 20 for Woods Cross, which is now 6-5 on the year.


Green Canyon handed the Redhawks a narrow 57-54 loss on Dec. 29. The visitors pulled away with a 14-9 third quarter and held off Bountiful, which fell to 4-5 on the year. Carson Smith led Bountiful with 13 points, and both Sam Stevenson and Trevin Olster scored 12.


The Phoenix improved their season record to 6-5 with a 63-45 win over Copper Hills on Dec. 30. Farmington led 32-21 at half and was never in jeopardy. Collin Chandler scored 17, Devin Day added 14, and Paul Beattie had 10 points and 10 rebounds.
