High school boys basketball: Copper Hills makes big plays at the end to hold off West Jordan

WEST JORDAN — This has already been a memorable season for the Copper Hills boys basketball team.

The Grizzlies have already endured a long road trip to Florida that almost didn’t get off the ground, took home a preseason tournament trophy at Skyridge, then fell apart in an early afternoon game at Farmington.

On Friday night, coach John Watkins’ group welcomed rival West Jordan to their gym, and the Grizzlies got a pair of important rebound baskets by Kyson Hymas in the last four minutes of the game and that proved enough to beat the Jaguars 57-51 in the Region 3 opener for both teams.
