2A boys tournament preview

Thursday night the bracket for the 2A boys state basketball tournament was finalized. That bracket will begin to grow smaller Saturday when the first round is played at Orem High.

Two teams that look to be the last one standing are Emery and Layton Christian. The Spartans had a chance at the championship last year but lost to Manti in the final. This year Emery will begin their road with a first round match up against Providence Hall from Region 16.

think they a real solid team, Spartan coach Todd Jeffs said. have good big kids and a great 3 point shooter.cheap nfl jerseys

Emery has had a strong season, losing only two games all year. Jeffs attributes that to his team defense, which has saved his team on poor offensive nights.

The Eagles have emerged this year as a serious contender thanks in part to their schedule. Layton Christian played some 5A schools as well as an out of state tournament at the beginning of the season. Last year Layton Christian fell to Enterprise in the quarterfinals.

This year its first round matchup is Millard. Layton Christian coach Bobby Porter doesn want to make the same mistake twice. In order to avoid an early knockout, Porter wants his team to focus on themselves and only take things a game at a time.

hoping we can do it for the next two weeks, but before that we got to get the one on Saturday, Porter said.

Both coaches agree that in order to have a successful tournament, there has to be some luck involved. Jeffs recalled a game from last year tournament where a miracle shot got his team through the first round. Along with luck, Porter believes consistency is another key.

who has everything going good for three straight days, that the key, Porter said. can have the best team and not even win.

A few other teams that could make a serious run in the bracket this year are Summit Academy, North Sevier and North Summit. Jeffs believes in all there are about six to seven different teams that have a possibility to make it to the final.

Porter referred to the tournament as the time of year when no team wants to take off their jerseys. This tournament will be the deciding factor for who has to take off the jersey and who gets to be the last one with theirs on at the end of next week.

Wout Poels aiming for Tour de France spot with Team Sky two and a half years on from horror crash

Team Sky newest mountain goat still speaks with a sense of relief when he reflects on one of the worst crashes in recent Tour de France memory.

It happened two and a half years ago and he is now fully recovered, but Wout Poels has not forgotten that it almost ended his career.

was three weeks in hospital and two weeks in intensive care, the Dutchman says.wholesale nfl jerseys from china didn ride a bike for five months I was not allowed. was 24 years old and 20th in the general classification when he was one of around 100 riders brought down in a huge pile up inside the final 30km of stage six of the 2012 Tour de France.

Poels was involved a huge crash at the 2012 Tour de France

Such was the scale of the incident, bodies were strewn across the full width of the road and a dozen or so riders even found themselves flung down grass verges. Jerseys were shredded and wheels were bent double.

Most were able to remount their bikes and carry on, but Poels was one of the unlucky few whose race was over.

He was taken to hospital, where doctors found three broken ribs, bruised lungs and ruptures to his spleen and a kidney. They feared he might lose the kidney but salvaged it.

had really bad injuries, Poels adds. had a problem with my kidney and my left kidney has a little piece off now.

Poels suffered three broken ribs and ruptures to his spleen and kidney in the pile up

the beginning, when I was in the Netherlands in hospital, they told me that maybe it was better to stop cycling. I was a little bit in panic because I thought, my whole life. Cycling is my life and I don want to stop riding for Vacansoleil DCM at the time, ignored their advice and returned to racing just seven months later, but the road to recovery was not an easy one.

was quite difficult to come back, he says. first training [after the crash] was really easy but all of my muscles were gone. I was not going so fast.

was a little bit lucky with a bad crash that I can still ride a bike at a high level. Two years ago I didn expect it was possible to get that level again. Poels returned to the Tour in 2013 and is now hoping to ride the 2015 edition with one of cycling leading stage racing teams, having moved to Team Sky from Omega Pharma Quick Step over the winter.

He is among three climbing specialists signed by Sir Dave Brailsford in a bid to bolster Chris Froome chances of winning a mountainous Tour in July and could play a pivotal role.

Last year, he helped Rigoberto Uran finish second at the Giro d and is confident he can prove just as valuable to Froome.

role is going to be in the high mountains to support Froome, he says at Team Sky winter training camp in Mallorca. think I can do it, like last year in the Giro, I did it with Uran.

Poels had to be taken to hospital by ambulance

goal is to go to the Tour de France and support the team over there. It is a big challenge for me because we have a lot of good riders, but I think if I have good shape, I can be a part of that. Poels also has bigger ambitions than merely playing second fiddle to Froome. Last year he climbed to a solo win on a mountain stage of the Vuelta al Pais Vasco in Spain his first and only triumph at WorldTour level and he is hopeful there will be opportunities to add more victories to his palmares in Team Sky colours.

hope I can be in some races the leader, but we have to look which programme I am going to ride, he says. I ride more with Froome, he is, of course, the leader and you have to support him.

there are other races where maybe he isn [present] where maybe I can do my own thing. those chances come along, expect Team Sky’s miracle man to grasp them with both hands.
