Tooele County High School Basketball 2019

The 2018-19 boys basketball season saw all three of the Tooele Valley’s teams advance to the state tournament, with each showing continued improvement as the season went along.

Stansbury had a strong Region 11 season and gave Region 12 champion Green Canyon all it could handle in the first round of the Class 4A state tournament, nearly pulling off the upset. Tooele, which finished third in Region 11, was in contention for a top-two seed for much of the season, and ran into a tough postseason opponent in eventual state runner-up Bear River.

Grantsville overcame a long losing streak early in the season to get its ship righted once Region 13 play began, making it to the Class 3A state tournament as a No. 4 seed. While the inexperienced Cowboys were eliminated in the first round by defending state champion Manti, Grantsville has something to build on for next year.
