East / West Showdown

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
