Donovan Mitchell Attends High School Basketball Playoff Game
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell is out and about in the community once again as he was seen at the Jon M. Huntsman Center, taking some games in the High School Basketball tournament.
It’s an off day for the Jazz after losing their third straight game on Monday at the hands of the Phoenix Suns.
Mitchell was watching the first ever 5A girls basketball quarterfinal matchup that is played at the Huntsman Center – the home of Utah Utes men’s and women’s basketball as well as gymnastics.
The game that Mitchell was watching was Springville taking on Skyline where they Red Devils took home the 41-35 win. Mitchell was also spotted at the boys quarterfinal in the 5A classification with Woods Cross facing Orem.

Last week, Mitchell tweeted out that he wanted to attend some high school playoff games and was asking for recommendations. That was during the first two rounds where the games were played at the home site. This week is where the games are played at either the Huntsman Center or the Dee Events Center in Ogden.
Any games next week? https://t.co/JtQarASmEr
