Lone Peak’s Uptempo Style and Teamwork Leading to Success
Lone Peak (West Highland, Utah) had something to say to Bishop O’Dowd (Oakland) on Monday, and won 81-46 with an uptempo style and magnificent teamwork.
“We like to run,” said Lone Peak coach Quincy Lewis. “With as much scouting that is done these days and with as much emphasis is put on defense, if you can get the ball up early and get a good look, that may be the best look you’re going to get. Occasionally, you have to swallow a couple you don’t like, but I think the kids play better that way, with a little confidence.”
The Knights hit 13 out of their 24 three point shots in the blowout, and have been coming out strong early on in games.
“We talk a lot about coming out tough and being aggressive,” said guard T.J. Haws. “And that’s what we did in this game.”
They have great chemistry on the court as well, which has helped them overcome some of the best teams in the country this year. They even beat five-star prospect Aaron Gordon’s team at the Hoophall Classic last week.
“We know each other’s game really well and if I get caught, I know T.J.’s in the corner and Eric’s down low,” BYU commit Nick Emery said. “We really work well together.”
Lone Peak’s only loss of the year came against Montverde (Fla.) Academy 66-45 in the City of Palms Classic in Fort Myers, Fla. They hope to continue their winning ways, and they will keep fighting to see if they can grab the number one ranking in the country.
