Talented Bingham boys basketball returns

Dec 01, 2023 10:10AM ● By Travis Barton

After a 12-13 run a year ago that saw the Bingham boys basketball take second in region with a 7-3 record and a second-round loss to a formidable Cyprus squad, the Miners are back for a new season. With Kyle Straatman at the helm again and a talented group of shooters, Bingham will look to make noise as it welcomes Corner Canyon to a slightly altered Region 2 and realigned 6A classification. 

Sophomore Luke West (pictured) returns after being named all-state honorable mention as a freshman last season. He averaged 10 points a game last year and is off to a blistering start averaging almost 20 points through two games. 

Stockton Tuellar, a senior point guard, jumpstarted this new campaign with his defense and almost 15 points per game. Tuellar’s leadership, along with senior Rykan Meadows’ inside presence and senior Luke Cantwell’s sharpshooting, should provide an intriguing foundation for the Miners season. 

Bingham dropped its opening game on the road to Fremont 71-63 but bounced back with a road victory over Westlake 80-69 for its pre-Thanksgiving matchups. December will see the Miners take on Pleasant Grove Dec. 1, Ridgeline Dec. 6, West Jordan Dec. 8, at Farmington Dec. 12 and Olympus Dec. 19 (four of those at home) before embarking to Rancho Mirage, California for the Desert Holiday Classic. The first region game is Jan. 12 at Copper Hills. λ
