Feb. 23 - Pleasant Grove 45, Skyline 34

Story of the game: 6-foot-6 center Jennifer Hamson and Natalya
Parkes scored 11 points apiece as Pleasant Grove pulled away from
Skyline in the second half and eliminated the Eagles in the first round
of the 5A state tournament.

Skyline's best moment: The Eagles fell behind early, but dominated
the second quarter to tie the game at halftime. Skyline's two scrappy
guards, Katie Walker and Whitney Jenkins, forced numerous
turnovers and held Hamson to just two points in the first half. Walker
led Skyline in scoring with 12 points.

Pleasant Grove's best moment: Hamson scored eight points in the
third quarter as the Vikings built an eight-point lead. She finished with
11 rebounds and seven blocked shots. Ana Finau also had a big
second half.

Statistical notes: Skyline hit 12-15 free throws, while Pleasant Grove
was 15-26. The Eagles had the game's only three-pointers (two).
Skyline was the defending state champion, but was a No. 3 seed this
year.

What we learned from this game: Skyline lost to a Utah County
school for the second time in as many games this season. Region 2
appears to have had a "down" year as all four teams were eliminated
in the opening round.

Next: Skyline is finished for the season. Pleasant Grove advanced to
play Syracuse.

Story of the game: Hannah Bezdjian scored 17 points and pulled
down seven rebounds, including a couple late in the game that
resulted in key points, as Skyline held off Alta and claimed a No. 3
seed in the upcoming 5A state tournament.

Skyline's best moment: The Eagles led the entire game, jumping to a
14-2 first-quarter lead. Bezdjian had the big plays at the end, grabbing
offensive rebounds that kept Skyline ahead. Otherwise, the game
could have gone either way.

Alta's best moment: The Hawks battled back from an early deficit.
Alta scored 26 points in the fourth quarter, and came within 52-50 on
baskets by Hayli Shurtz, Caitlin Arnett, Stephanie Stohel and Erin
Foster.

Statistical notes: Foster had three treys for Skyline, and Shurtz had
two. The Hawks hit 10-16 free throws, while Skyline was 7-15 - on its
home floor.

What we learned from this game: Skyline swept the season series
and earned the better seed in the 5A state tournament. The wins also
ended a two-game losing streak at home.

Next: Both Skyline and Alta advance to the state tourney, which begins
Feb. 23 at Salt Lake Community College.

7-8 effort from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter, as Taylorsville
came back to beat Skyline in a Region 2 game.

in the game until the end. Hannah Bezdjian was the top scorer with 14
points, while Lisa Dickson had 11.

Taylorsville's best moment: The Warriors trailed 25-18 at halftime,
but came back to tie the game entering the final quarter. Lo'amanu
was unstoppable and got 17 of her points from the charity stripe.

Statistical notes: Taylorsville was 23-32 from the free-throw line,
while Skyline was 12-20. Whitney Mitchell had two three-pointers for
Taylorsville.

What we learned from this game: This was a tough loss for Skyline,
and it set up a big game against Alta next that will determine seeding
for the 5A state tournament.

Next: Skyline plays Alta at home on Feb. 18. Taylorsville plays host to

Feb. 11 - Skyline 54, Jordan 44

Story of the game: Whitney Jenkins scored 14 points as Skyline held
off Jordan in a tougher-than-expected Region 2 contest.

Skyline's best moment: The Eagles led most of the game, although it
was only 29-26 at halftime. Hannah Bezdjian added nine points as
Skyline hit enough of its free throws to actually extend the lead late in
the game.

Jordan's best moment: Bree Scuderi led the Beetdiggers with 16
points. It was "Senior Night" at Jordan, and the Diggers played one of
their better games, but hurt themselves with poor free-throw shooting
(1-10). Steph Burt had 10 points for Jordan.

Statistical notes: Scuderi had four three-pointers for Jordan. Skyline
didn't have any.

What we learned from this game: This was Skyline's final road game
of the regular season. The Eagles have clinched a post-season berth,
and now are playing for seeding.

goes to

Feb. 6 - Brighton 38, Skyline 26

Story of the game: Shelbi Everett scored 17 points, but it was
Brighton's defense that stymied Skyline while earning a tough Region
2 victory.

Skyline's best moment: The Eagles tried to rally, but never mounted a
serious threat. One game after scoring a season-high 78 points, they
score their season low.

Brighton's best moment: The Bengals led 16-10 at halftime, and just
slowly extended the lead. Brighton made enough of its free throws in
the fourth quarter to hang on.

Statistical notes: Brighton held Skyline to just two points in the
second quarter. Skyline was 1-4 from the free-throw line; Brighton
was 15-28. Hannah Bezdjian led Skyline with 11 points.

What we learned from this game: The loss ended a two-game
winning streak, and the offense showed again that it can be
inconsistent.

Next: Skyline goes to Jordan on Feb. 11. Brighton plays host to Alta
the same night.

Feb. 4 - Skyline 78, Hillcrest 32

Story of the game: Katie Walker led a balanced scoring effort with 19
points as Skyline blew out Hillcrest and claimed the easy win in a
Region 2 game.

Skyline's best moment: The Eagles jumped on Hillcrest early,
earning a 15-1 first-quarter lead, and then just expanded it. Hannah
Bezdjian added 16 points and Miquelle Askew had 13.

Hillcrest's best moment: The Huskies were never in the game, and
had only seven baskets. Lexi Amundsen and Linda Shober were the
top scorers with 11 points.

Statistical notes: Skyline blew out Hillcrest both times the teams
played. Both teams shot about 60 percent from the free-throw line.
Nine different players scored for Skyline. Walker had two
three-pointers for Skyline.

What we learned from this game: The Eagles and Huskies must just
not match up well because these games were both the biggest routs
of the season in Region 2.

Next: Skyline has a home game against Brighton Feb. 6. Hillcrest
plays host to
Taylorsville the same night.

Jan. 30 - Skyline 51, Alta 49

Story of the game: Miquelle Askew scored 14 points, but it was
Whitney Jenkins' two free throws with 1.5 seconds that made the
difference in Skyline's Region 2 win over Alta.

Skyline's best moment: This game was close throughout and both
teams played well. Alta chose to foul someone who wasn't having a
hot night (Jenkins had just four points), but it backfired. Hannah
Bezdjian added 12 points for Skyline.

Alta's best moment: The Hawks played tough, and this game went
back-and-forth. McKenzie Morrison and Becca Baudoin were Alta's 1-2
punch with 18 and 17 points.

Statistical notes: Skyline hit 10-15 free throws; Alta was 18-25.
Beaudoin had three treys for Alta, and Erin Foster had two.

What we learned from this game: This is another example of how
close these teams are. The ones that win the close battles will be at
the top. Not much separates them, however.

Next: Skyline returns home to play Hillcrest on Feb. 4. Alta plays host
to
Jordan the same night.

Jan. 23 - Taylorsville 30, Skyline 28

Story of the game: Sione Lo'amanu scored 19 points, but it was Erin
Romero's basket as time expired that allowed Taylorsville to edge
Skyline in a Region 2 game.

Skyline's best moment: Whitney Jenkins led the Eagles with seven
points, while Hannah Bezdjian had six. Skyline held Taylorsville to two
third-quarter points and got back into the game.

Taylorsville's best moment: The Warriors led 21-17 in this
defensive-minded game, but it was back-and-forth late until Romero's
basket decided it. Athena Mauga added six points.

Statistical notes: Skyline's point total was a season low. Skyline was
6-7 from the free-throw line; Taylorsville was 8-13. Lo'amanu had two
three-pointers for the Warriors. Romero's basket was her only points
of the game.

What we learned from this game: Skyline dropped to 2-2 in region.
This was a winnable game, and it marks the second straight close
one the Eagles have lost.

Jordan the same night.

Story of the game: Katie Tominaga scored 10 points as Brighton held
off Skyline's comeback and edged the Eagles in a Region 2 game.

leading scorer with 10 points.

Brighton's best moment: The Bengals led 7-6 after the first quarter

Story of the game: Whitney Jenkins scored 14 points and Skyline
shut down the Hillcrest offense, en route to an easy victory in the
Region 2 opener for both teams.

Skyline's best moment: The Eagles pulled away in the second
quarter and then held Hillcrest scoreless during the third period to
turn this game into a rout. Julie Hanks had 10 points for Skyline.

Hillcrest's best moment: Lexi Amundsen is the team's top scorer, but
she had just three points. Then again, nobody else could score for

Statistical notes: Skyline outscored Hillcrest 25-2 during the middle
two quarters. There were no three-point baskets in this game.

What we learned from this game: Skyline moved to 1-0 in region with

the game. A big fourth quarter for Skyline made the difference. Sarah
Spangler had a season-high 10 points for the Eagles.

Fremont's best moment: Fremont outscored Skyline 13-7 in the third

Dec. 30 - Skyline 48, Weber 35

scored nine as Skyline won its second straight game with a
non-region road win over Weber.

efforts.

Weber's best moment: Weber stayed within 22-20 at halftime. Shay
Sorensen led the Warriors with 15 points. Desiree Young had eight
points, including a pair of three-pointers.

Statistical notes: It seems scoring 40 points might be the key to
Skyline's success. The Eagles are 0-3 when the score less than 40;
4-0 when they score more.

What we learned from this game: The Eagles have been
inconsistent so far, but now they have a winning streak, and they're
doing it on the road.

Davis in a Region 1 game Jan. 6.

Story of the game: Katie Walker scored 23 points and Skyline rallied
with a huge third quarter to take the non-region victory over its
neighborhood rival.

Skyline's best moment: The Eagles led 10-4 after the first quarter,
then gave up the lead in the second. In the third quarter, Skyline
outscored Olympus 21-3 and that was the difference.

Oly's best moment: Heather Giffin scored 15 points for the Titans,
who rallied to take a 17-14 halftime advantage. The third quarter,
however, was Oly's demise.

Statistical notes: Walker was the difference. She had three treys for
the Eagles, too. Skyline's 49 points was a season high. The fourth
quarter was played evenly.

What we learned from this game: This was a rivalry game, and the
Eagles certainly quieted the crowd in the third quarter. It was also
Skyline's first road win.

Next: Skyline is off until it plays at Weber Dec. 30. Olympus goes to
Cyprus on Jan. 2.

Goodman had 10 as Mountain View rallied in the third quarter and
stayed unbeaten with a non-region win over Skyline.

nine points.

Statistical notes: Mountain View was 10-14 from the free throw line;

What we learned from this game: Skyline dropped to 2-3 and hasn't
been able to build a winning streak yet, primarily because of the
quality of its schedule.

game. Mountain View plays host to Bear River Dec. 30.

Story of the game: Hannah Bezdjian scored 10 points and Skyline
pulled away in the third quarter to claim the non-region victory and
keep West Jordan winless.

outscored West Jordan 12-2 in the third quarter. The Eagles had a
season-high four three-point baskets.

West Jordan's best moment: The Jaguars only matched Skyline in
the fourth quarter, when the Eagles had filled the game with reserves.
Leuluai led the Jags with six points.

Statistical notes: West Jordan's 21 points was a season low
offensive output. Skyline was 11-16 from the free-throw line; West
Jordan was 2-6.

What we learned from this game: The Eagles got back on the
winning track against a team that's struggling this season. This game
could help Skyline's opinion about its defense.

goes to Sky View Dec. 12.

rebounds to lift Syracuse past Skyline in a non-region game and stay
unbeaten so far this season.

Skyline's best moment: The Eagles played evenly with Syracuse in
the second half. Katie Walker had nine points as nobody reached
double figures.

Syracuse's best moment: Hazlett was all over the court. She hit three
treys, too. The Titans had a great first half, claiming a 24-15 halftime
advantage and then held off the Skyline rally.

Statistical notes: The Titans shot 10 of 12 from the free-throw line,
most in the final quarter. Skyline scored just five points in the second
quarter.

What we learned from this game: Skyline has not found its offensive
groove yet, but its defense is playing well enough to keep it in games.
The team's schedule won't allow a great record, but it should prepare
the team well for region play.

Next: Skyline returns home to play winless West Jordan Dec. 10.
Syracuse goes to
Bingham Dec. 9.

free-throw line. Hanks had five rebounds for Skyline.

What we learned from this game: This close victory once again

Nov. 25 - Sky View 54, Skyline 38

Story of the game: Kelsie Naylor scored 12 points and led a
balanced scoring attack as Sky View, the defending 4A girls
basketball champions, defeated last year's 5A champs - Skyline - in a

teams played evenly after that. Hannah Bezdjian led the Eagles with
11 points.

Sky View's best moment: The Bobcats decided the outcome of this
game early, outscoring Skyline 17-8 in the first quarter and holding a
30-14 advantage at halftime. Amy Andrus had 11 points for Sky View.

Statistical notes: Sky View hit just 8 of 23 shots from the free-throw
line. Skyline was 14-25. Julie Hanks added nine points for Skyline.

What we learned from this game: Obviously, these are not the same
