It’s opening week for high school basketball and the Bengals will be in Kearns Tuesday night, November 20th. Games start at 3:30 with varsity finishing the night off at 7:30 PM. Some are comparing this year’s squad to Coach Pat Summit’s 97-98 Tennessee roster which went 39-0 and a NCAA Championship.
“Summit’s 98 dream team was special” Coach Nielsen said in an interview this past weekend. “I mean, I’d put this Bengal team up against anybody. Really, I mean that. The 98 team? I probably would.”
It’s the program’s first game under legendary Coach Wood (NCAA 2k17 3rd place finish) and his trusty sidekick Coach Jesse (Tecmo Bowl champ 1994).
