Jalen Townsell, Spanish Springs boys basketball
The Cougars’ junior prospect scored a team-high 20 points in Friday’s 73-58 home win over Reno. Four came on a pair of thunderous first-half dunks. Townsell also led the way with 21 points in last Tuesday’s 30-point win over Hug. Thanks in part to Townsell’s breakout season, Spanish Springs is the only 4A North team without a regional loss.
