STRIVING FOR GREATNESS — Did you catch everything that happened last week in sports?

It was busy enough on the Wasatch Front, with big wins in the NBA, college basketball and a rising women’s basketball powerhouse making history.

Add in the NHL All-Star Game and the Pro Bowl (the what?), and it’s enough to make your head spin.

So just in case you missed something, here are some of the best moments from the week. As always, click the video above for each Great Clip of the Week.

Welcome back, Korver

A lot happened with the Utah Jazz last week, so here’s a brief recap.

First, the Jazz had their six-game winning streak snapped Monday in a 109-104 loss to Portland.

Ricky Rubio went out, then came back, then sort of went out again, but ultimately he's healthy — a big boost from the Spanish point guard.

Joe Ingles said he doesn’t want to go to Charlotte for the NBA All-Star Game, even if he was invited, and then the Jazz ran roughshod over the Nuggets — with a little help from the fans.

Donovan Mitchell continued his tear through the month of January — and now he’ll have a bobblehead likeness, courtesy of the Salt Lake City Stars.

The Jazz finished out the week with back-to-back wins over Minnesota. Oh, and Jazz Bear killed a bat.

You get all that?

Sure, it’s a lot; we get it. So if you didn’t see the funniest moment in the Jazz’s week last Monday, it’s understandable.

Take it away, Kyle Korver.

That’s Korver going to inbound a shot — after Blazers star Damian Lillard hit nothing but air on a 3-point attempt.

Apparently, Korver got confused. But, to quote former Utah coach Jim Boylen, "ball didn’t go in the hoop."

Winner, winner, freshman dinner

Everybody dreams of hitting the winning shot in an important game.

Some people have to wait for such an experience, while others get to experience it by their junior or senior year in high school.

Riverton's Parker Goff got to live it during his freshman season.

During a crucial game for Riverton's freshman team last Saturday, Goff got his chance. Herriman took a 34-32 lead with 30 seconds left in a game that would’ve clinched the league title for the Mustangs.

But after a brief timeout, Goff took an inbounds pass from teammate Levi McDougal, and unleashed a half-court bomb that sailed through the net as time expired, giving the Silverwolves a 35-34 win.

Here’s the play, courtesy of Parker’s mom, Camie Goff.

The shot heard ’round Riverton improved the Silverwolves to 5-1 in league play, clinching a No. 1 seed for the freshman state playoffs in two weeks.

And it created a memory Goff will remember for the rest of his life.

Coyne around the rink

Kendall Coyne made history Friday night.

If you haven’t heard of the two-time Olympic medalist hockey player, you might soon enough.

Coyne became the first-ever female to be invited to the NHL All-Star skills competition, and her record-setting race around the rink in San Jose, California, went viral.

Connor McDavid won the fastest skater award, clocking an impressive lap of 13.378 seconds. Coyne, who stands just 5-foot-2, reached a top speed of 22 miles per hour, and finished in 14.346 seconds.
