WEST VALLEY CITY — A big shot by Tyler Crosbie late in the game helped Mountain Crest survive a scare from Hillcrest in the first round of the 4A state tournament.

Mountain Crest led wire to wire but the Huskies managed to tie the game five times including late in the 4th quarter when a Tanner Dastrup layup tied the game at 35. Crosbie quickly responded with a 3-pointer that sparked a 9-2 run by the Mustangs to close the game.

The Mustangs were led by Faimafili Laulu-Pututau. The BYU football commit scored 13 points and blocked two shots. Tanner Dastrup was the leading scorer for the Huskies with 11.

Mountain Crest will play Provo Wednesday at 7:15.
