RICHFIELD—The Manti High School boys’ basketball team won its two games at the Central Utah Boys Basketball Preview last weekend at the Sevier Valley Center in Richfield.
On Friday, the Templars took on the Grantsville Cowboys and prevailed 69-55. On Saturday, Manti came out on top of the Enterprise Wolves by the score of 77-60.
Against the Cowboys, Ben Cluff led the way with 16 points, followed closely by Grady Thompson with 15. On Saturday against the Wolves, Thompson was hot again, scoring 14 points. Adam Huff, with 11 points, and Mason Thompson, with 10, also scored in double digits.
The Templars have started off defense of their state title with a 2-1 record. They know everyone will be looking to knock them off, and they will have to be on top of their game.
This week, the Templars will travel to Nephi to take on Juab High School on Dec. 4 (after time of press), and then will host Millard on Friday, Dec. 7. Tip-off is at 7 p.m.
