For the second year in a row, the Region 12 boys basketball coaches named Canyon View’s Brantzen Blackner the Most Valuable Player. The Falcons repeated as region champion largely on the strength of the junior’s play despite missing a game in January after he suffered a knee injury.

Blackner finished his junior season averaging 19 points per game, third-best in the state in 3A. His 53 3-pointers were a team high and tied for second in 3A.

Porter Miller was named to the Region 12 first team for the Falcons, and Joey Lambeth – who had 49 3-pointers on the season, including one in the final second that beat Richfield in the consolation round of the 3A state tournament – was named to the second team. Miller led all of 3A in rebounding with 9.1 per game.

“This recognition gives them a chance to do it again in Region 9,” Canyon View head coach Robbie Potter said. “Not many people get to be all-Region or MVP in multiple regions.”

Senior Abe Huxford received honorable mention on the all-Region 12 team.

The full Region 12 teams are:

First team: Aaron Clark (Juab, senior), Kyle Quinton (Carbon, senior), Miller, Spencer Steadman (North Sanpete, junior) and Stetson Southwick (Richfield, senior)

Second team: Lambeth, Gage Daugherty (Carbon, senior), Jamin Jensen (Carbon, senior), Shawn Taylor (N. Sanpete, junior) and Reggie Hinck (Richfield, senior)

Honorable mention: Jakota Snow, Ryker Osborne, Max Gurney and Jason Christensen from Juab, Huxford, Chase Morgan from Carbon, Kaleb Bailey from North Sanpete, Wyatt Jensen and Jeron Stewart from Richfield.
