But it’s entirely possible.
Sky View’s Jalen Moore swished a half-court shot at the buzzer to lift the Bobcats into the title game with a 63-60 heart-stopping overtime win over Bountiful on Friday in the last game of the day at the Dee Events Center.
Sky View will meet cross-county rival Mountain Crest at 4 p.m. for the state title at the Dee Events Center.
Lone Peak and Alta will play for the 5-A title at 1:30 p.m.
