2014 UHSLL Bracketology: April 27, 2014

The last week of the UHSLL regular season is upon us and a couple upsets have surprised and created changes in the bracket this week.  Let’s look at the projections as the picture is coming into focus.
Analysis
Brighton has secured the No. 1 spot in the draw with just a single game left to play.  Even if they lose to Olympus, they will still own the tie-breaker over one-loss Corner Canyon.
Corner Canyon now owns the No. 2 seed as they also only have a single game left (against Pleasant Grove) and own the tie-breaker over Bountiful.
Bountiful is secure in the No. 3 position with just Viewmont left on the schedule and the tie-breaker over Alta.
Alta’s UHSLL regular season is finished.  While they will play a cross-league game this week, they are locked into the No. 4 spot.
Jordan has made big moves the past two weeks from looking like they were out of the playoffs to being right in the thick of things.  A big win over Lone Peak last week vaulted them into the No. 6 position, which they can secure with a win over Timpanogos in their regular season finale and a win over Pleasant Grove in the play-in game.
Stumbles against Jordan, Olympus, and Alta have left Viewmont in the bottom half of the draw.  If they can continue their current win streak and beat Lone Peak, they’ll be in position for the No. 7 seed overall as long as they can beat Spanish Fork in the play-in game.
The loss to Jordan puts Lone Peak in a tight spot. If they can get a win this week, they can move up, but they currently look to be the No. 8 team overall in the draw (but avoid a play-in game).
Spanish Fork will face a tough task as it will likely face Viewmont in the play-in game.  If they can steal a win, they’ll cause some waves going into the bracket of eight.
Pleasant Grove could make up some ground if they can find some magic and cause some upsets.  The must-win game will be on May 2 against Timpanogos: the victor will advance to the play-in game against Jordan and the not-so-victorious will be watching from the sidelines.
