MT. PLEASANT—Wasatch Academy continued its run of success against top-ranked Utah high schools as it defeated fifth-ranked 5A Jordan High School 68-43 on Tuesday night, Feb. 20, in Mt. Pleasant.
With the win over the Beetdiggers, the Tigers advanced to 23-2 and are now ranked No. 18 in the country by USA Today.
Matt Bradley of Wasatch Academy had 26 points in the game, including four three-pointers.
Curtis Condie, Wasatch Academy’s coach, credits his team’s success to buying in on defense and following scouting reports.
Condie said, “We are holding teams to 50 points this year, and that’s because of their great effort to follow details on what teams do.”
He added, “You got to love it as a coach when [an opposing] team calls out plays, and your guys on the floor call it out, and the guys on the bench stand up to say what the opposing team is going to do. You know you’ve done your job as a coach when that happens.”
The game against Jordan was Senior Night, and the Tigers sent out senior Damion Squire as the most winningest high school athlete in Utah history.
During his three years with Wasatch, Squire has collected 75 victories, which, according to Condie, is better than any other Utah athlete “by a few.”
Squire had 13 points against Jordan High.
Wasatch Academy has one remaining regular season game coming up tomorrow against Impact Academy of Las Vegas, Nev. The Tigers host, and tipoff is scheduled for 5 p.m.
