Ogden • Dason Youngblood was left by his lonesome in the open court. The high-flying guard known for his ability to play above the rim despite his diminutive stature passed on the opportunity to throw it down in favor of the more secure layup.
Bingham was on the verge of blowing open the Class 5A state boys' basketball championship at Weber State University at the juncture, so the safer play was more logical. However, when Youngblood found himself in the exact scenario moments later Saturday, the senior rose to the occasion and hammered down a two-handed dunk that sent the blue-painted student section into a frenzy.
It was the beginning of the end as the Miners were able to close out Lone Peak with relative ease from there to claim their second consecutive title with the 49-42 win.
