East / West Showdown


1 comment

It's the oldest rivalry in Utah. Period. In fact, the oldest this side of the mighty Mississippi, and one of the top 20 oldest rivalries in the United States. ---

That's right, East High vs West High.

Leopards vs Panthers... The Big Cat Fight.

Tonight, these two basketball teams face off on East's home court @ 7pm. West brings their 4-1 record to East to face the 3-1 Leopards, who only lost their 1st game on Tuesday to Murray. The match up features several top players in 4A / 5A basketball, but the marquee showdown will be between West's senior guard Tyrell Corbin, averaging 24 points a game, and East High sophomore phenom, Parker VanDyke who is dropping 22 a night.

Well worth the $4 admission, not to mention supporting your local high school sports teams.

Sophomore 3:30pm ~ JV 5:15pm ~ VARSITY 7pm. ~ East High, 800 South 1300 East
