2017 Tooele County High School Boys Basketball

The 2016-17 high school boys basketball season came to a close last month, with Stansbury winding up finishing sixth in Class 3A.

The Stallions wrapped up the finest season in school history by finishing tied for second in Region 10 and coming from behind to beat North Sanpete on the road in the opening round of the state tournament — Stansbury’s first postseason victory. Stansbury went on to beat Carbon in the consolation bracket at Utah State University in Logan en route to a sixth-place finish.

Grantsville dominated Region 10 play, posting a perfect 8-0 record before running into a difficult first-round matchup against Richfield. The Cowboys were the only one of Tooele County’s three larger-school teams to finish with a winning record, posting a 16-8 mark in coach Bryan Detweiler’s third season on the Grantsville sideline.

Tooele bounced back from an 0-3 start in region play by winning four of its final five games, earning the No. 2 seed and a home game in the opening round of the state tournament. The Buffaloes threw a scare into Carbon before ultimately falling in the first round, but showed positive signs with a young roster.
