ON CAMPUS — Have you ever wanted to go back to high school?

No? Well, neither have we.

But there were still some pretty cool things that happened on high school campuses around the state this weekend.

As always, click the video above for each of our Great Clips of the Week.

Back-to-school Mitchell

Before Donovan Mitchell took the Jazz to San Antonio on Sunday, he was in town for a brief layover — and looking for a spot to watch some Friday night hoops.

What better stop, he found out, then a trip to the gym at Kearns High School.

After taking recommendations from the Twitterati, Mitchell, Royce O’Neale and Ekpe Udoh went to Kearn's home game against Murray. The Cougars beat the Spartans 68-62, and the Jazz trio took pictures, signed autographs and further burrowed themselves into the heart of the community before hitting the road again.

Speaking of high school hoops …

Bingham strikes back

Luke Tueller got the ball in the final seconds, with Bingham trailing by three — and let it fly from halfcourt.

That 3-pointer forced overtime, and the Miners went on to beat the Darts 74-69 to move into the championship game of the Utah Elite 8 holiday tournament.

The Miners went on to fall to host American Fork, 55-48, in the tournament title game Saturday night. Oregon signee Isaac Johnson had 25 points and 12 rebounds for the Cavemen, and Hayden Franson added 14 points in the win. Tanner Cuff supplied 10 points, 12 rebounds and four assists for American Fork, which improved to 5-0 early in the season.

But that might not have been the most impressive play of the weekend …

Flying Falslev

If you haven’t heard of Sky View multi-sport standout Mason Falslev, listen now.

The Utah basketball commit had 23 points and 10 rebounds in a 76-67 win over Pine View in the Juniper Ridge North South Tournament this weekend in St. George, and he showed off his hops.

Unconfirmed reports tell us BYU’s Yoeli Childs blushed at the jam.
