Finch leads rally to lift Provo

Junior point guard Adam Finch played just five games last season before he broke his back and was forced to sit the bench for the remainder of his sophomore year.

After a slow and painful recovery, and plenty of summer ball, he’s back in full force as Provo heads to the quarterfinal round to take on Olympus.

Finch proved to be a potent scoring threat for the Bulldogs as they took on Mountain Crest in the second round. Held scoreless in the first half, he scored all 15 of points in the last 12 minutes of the game and became an integral part of the Bulldog rally.

“I just needed to come out more aggressive and try to get my own, but try to get some more points for my teammates,” he said. “I think I did that.”

The tenacious guard drained three from beyond the 3-point arc with two of them adding to the Provo surge in the third quarter. With nine assists, five rebounds and four crucial free throws down the stretch, Finch played a huge role in the team’s advancement.

He hopes to see similar success in the quarterfinal contest and is excited to be headed to the next round.

“It’s great,” he said. “It’s a dream come true.
