T.J. Haws celebrates Lone Peak's four-peat with the Knight student body.

TJ Haws celebrates Lone Peak’s fourth consecutive state championship with the Knight student body.

In convincing fashion, per the norm with Lone Peak, the Knights defeated Pleasant Grove and won their fourth consecutive 5A state boys basketball championship at the Huntsman Center at the University of Utah Saturday afternoon, 84-66.

Senior BYU-commit TJ Haws scored a team-high 29 points, while fellow senior Zach Frampton had 24 points, 10 rebounds and six steals on the afternoon.

Pleasant Grove’s top player was senior center Matt Conway who fought through a stingy Lone Peak defense for 16 points and eight rebounds.

“It’s just the greatest feeling in the world. I’m so blessed to be a part of this program. We made history,” said Haws.

In addition to Haws and Frampton, sophomore-sensation and BYU-commit Frank Jackson also provided stellar defense, ball control and scoring. Going forward, Jackson will be the featured player for Lone Peak.

In a surprise to nobody who even casually followed the 5A tournament, Haws was named tournament MVP. Jackson was named to the first team all-tournament team.
