The overall quality in Class 4A this season is definitely down, and there might only be three teams with a realistic shot at winning the state title — Olympus, Timpview and Woods Cross. Maple Mountain might be in the conversation as well with its strong guard play.

With that said, there’s almost always an upset or two in the 4A playoffs, and the clear-cut favorites run the risk of becoming the next upset victim if they get caught looking ahead.

In alphabetical order, these are the 16 teams that have qualified for the 4A boys state basketball tournament.

Deseret News prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Corner Canyon in 4A first round

Edward's evaluation: Bountiful played a tough preseason schedule, and it showed with just one victory. All those frustrating performances seem to be paying off though as the Braves head into the playoffs with a 6-1 record in their past seven games. One of those preseason losses was a 65-55 setback to Corner Canyon, and Bountiful is playing well enough that it could easily avenge that loss in the 4A first round.

2016 postseason: Lost to Payson, 46-45, in the 4A first round

Deseret News prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Maple Mountain in 4A quarterfinals

Edward's evaluation: Corner Canyon could be the most unpredictable team in 4A. It was the only 4A team to beat Olympus this season — a 69-59 win back in December — but it also lost to both Provo and Alta in region play, two teams that didn’t make the playoffs. Corner Canyon had already beaten first-round opponent Bountiful in the preseason. It also already beat a potential quarterfinal opponent (Maple Mountain) and semifinal opponent (Olympus). The path is paved for a march to the title game, but the fickle Chargers could just as easily lose in the first round.

2016 postseason: Lost to Timpview, 59-49, in the 4A semifinals

Deseret News prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Timpview in 4A first round

Edward's evaluation: Three years ago, Highland entered the playoffs as a No. 4 seed, but played with tremendous poise in upsetting No. 1 Timpview in the first round. The Rams open with Timpview again this year, but is an upset possible? The chance is slim, but to have any chance Highland needs to guard the perimeter well because Timpview can shoot the lights out from behind the arc.

Hillcrest Huskies (15-6)

Deseret News prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Salem Hills in 4A first round

Edward's evaluation: Hillcrest lost five region games this season, including twice to Olympus and Murray, but in the parity-filled Region 6 it still clinched the No. 2 seed with a 7-5 record. The Huskies face a similar foe in Salem Hills in the first round, and they’ll need a strong shooting night if they hope to extend their season another round.

Maple Mountain Golden Eagles (16-6)

2016 postseason: Lost to Mountain View, 66-64, in the 4A first round

Deseret News prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Olympus in 4A semifinals

Edward's evaluation: Maple Mountain got off to a bit of a slow start this season as the players adjusted to a new offensive scheme, but when region started everyone was finally on the same page and the Golden Eagles were terrific. They earned a share of the Region 8 title with Springville, which it lost to by two points in the second-to-last game of the regular season. Maple Mountain is built for a title run. It has great guard play, is a scrappy group defensively, and its five leading scorers are all seniors.

Murray Spartans (11-13)

Coach: Jason Workman (12th year)

2016 postseason: Lost to Highland, 72-59, in the 4A first round

Deseret News prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Maple Mountain in 4A first round

Edward's evaluation: Murray won three of its last four region games — and then a play-in game — just to qualify for the playoffs. The late-season success should give Murray confidence heading into the first round against Maple Mountain. Murray ranks near the bottom in scoring offense in 4A, but it typically plays solid defense, and if it can slow down Maple Mountain’s guards, a first-round upset isn’t completely unrealistic.

2016 postseason: Did not qualify

Deseret News prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Timpanogos in 4A first round

Edward's evaluation: Ogden couldn’t have asked for a better first-round game as a No. 3 seed. It faces a Timpanogos team that like itself didn’t qualify for the playoffs last season. That means both teams will be feeling the nerves on Tuesday night at the Huntsman Center. If Ogden can find a way to pull off the mini upset, the quarterfinals will be at Weber State, and Ogden would likely have a huge crowd for a 10 a.m. game against top-ranked Olympus.

2016 postseason: Beat Timpview, 51-44, in the 4A championship game

Deseret News prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Win over Timpview in 4A championship

Edward's evaluation: The defending champs have won 18 straight since a 65-55 loss to Corner Canyon back on Dec. 10. The Titans are no doubt talented with four players who average in double figures, but they played in a very weak region and haven’t really been tested since December. That might not matter if Olympus and its top-scoring offense are on the A game. But if they’re struggling, and the Titans find themselves in a fourth-quarter grind, they don’t have much experience in those scenarios to fall back on.

2016 postseason: Lost to Olympus, 50-46, in the 4A quarterfinals

Deseret News prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Woods Cross in 4A first round

Edward's evaluation: Orem won four of its last five games to simply qualify for the playoffs as a No. 4 seed, and that one loss during the stretch was a narrow 50-49 loss to Timpview. Orem’s slow, methodical style always makes it a difficult team to beat in the playoffs. If the youthful Tigers can gain some early confidence against favored Woods Cross in the first round, they are definitely capable of beating the Region 5 champs.

Salem Hills Skyhawks (14-9)

2016 postseason: Lost to Timpview, 67-55, in the 4A first round

Deseret News prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Timpview in 4A quarterfinals

Edward's evaluation: James Nelson is one of the top scorers in 4A, and he has the potential to go off for 30 points at any time. The bigger question for Salem Hills is can it get enough stops. It ranks 24th in 4A in scoring defense this season, and trying to outscore someone is rarely a recipe for success in the playoffs. The Skyhawks will need to grind defensively if they hope to march past the first round.

2016 postseason: Didn’t qualify

Deseret News prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Springville in 4A first round

Edward's evaluation: Losing its last three games, Skyline is limping into the playoffs, and it faces a tough task in the opener against Springville’s top-ranked scoring defense in 4A. Even if it’s a one-and-done showing for the Eagles, their top three scorers are all juniors, and that should pay dividends next year.

2016 postseason: Did not qualify

Deseret News prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Woods Cross in 4A quarterfinals

Edward's evaluation: Springville won its last eight region games, and has the potential to make some noise in the playoffs after missing out on the playoffs last year. The big reason why is defense. Springville ranks first in 4A in scoring defense this season. Once region play started, only one team scored in the 60s against the Red Devils.

Timpanogos T-Wolves (19-5)

2016 postseason: Did not qualify

Deseret News prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Olympus in 4A quarterfinals

Edward's evaluation: Timpanogos lost to Orem on the last day of the region play, which cost it the outright Region 7 title. The loss by no means erases what’s been a terrific 19-win season for the T-wolves, who didn’t even qualify for the playoffs last year. Timpanogos faces a tough task in the opener against Ogden, and if it advances it will be a sizable underdog against Olympus in the quarterfinals.

2016 postseason: Lost to Olympus, 51-44, in the 4A championship game

Deseret News prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Olympus in 4A championship

Edward's evaluation: Timpview had a couple of hiccups in region play, but last year’s 4A runner-ups are one of three or four teams with a realistic shot of winning the state title. The T-Birds rank second in 4A in scoring offense but 26th in scoring defense, which means they usually just try and outscore opponents. That’s usually not a problem as they averaged 11.2 3-pointers per game this season. Timpview can’t get caught looking past the first round though, because Highland looms, the same team that upset it in the first round in 2014.

Edward's evaluation: Wasatch faces a tall task in the opening round against Olympus. Devising a successful game plan will be difficult, but you can bet it involves Eli Ballstaedt — one of 4A’s top scorers — having a great game. If he does, and the supporting cast is knocking down threes, it might be able to keep it close against Olympus.

2016 postseason: Lost to Olympus, 70-42, in the 4A semifinals

Deseret News prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Timpview in 4A semifinals

Edward's evaluation: For a team that won 21 games this season, Woods Cross sure has a brutal first-round draw. Orem plays a style that lends itself to playoff success by slowing a game way down and keeping it close. Woods Cross, meanwhile, didn’t have a close, grind-it-out game all season in the subpar Region 5. Patience will be the key for the Wildcats to get past the first round, and if they do that they’re one of the favorites to lift the trophy on Saturday.
