CEDAR CITY – Patience is a virtue and Cedar’s Lady Reds showed the ultimate patience in rallying to a 54-53 win over Carbon Friday evening in the 3A State Semifinals at SUU’s Centrum Arena. Jessica Whetman made a layup with 1.6 seconds left to provide the winning points on a nice dish from Dream Weaver. The Lady Reds will play for the state championship for the first time in school history. The game will be against Snow Canyon in the Centrum at 12:30 pm on Saturday.
The dream came to an end for Canyon View on Friday night. The Falcons were able to cut a 10-point fourth quarter deficit to one with two minutes remaining, but couldn’t complete the comeback, losing to Juan Diego 47-43 in the 3A semifinals.
Robbie Potter is the coach for the Canyon View High School (CVHS) boys varsity basketball team. He led the 2015-16 team to the state semifinal game vs Juan Diego. Coach Potter is a graduate and former player of Cedar High School.
