Omari Sanfoka II: Casey said the key with Sekou Doumbouya is consistency — showing up on time, running and cutting hard. “I see a big difference in his personality and his approach to the game, his work ethic, compared to last year.”
Omari Sanfoka II: Casey said having a close relationship with Tom Gores has given him assurance that the front office trusts him. “When I leave, I want to leave it a better place than I found it. And the way to do that is to build a perennial winner here … we’re on the right path to doing that.”
Omari Sanfoka II: Troy Weaver on Dwane Casey’s extension: “It was extremely important that we extend coach. It was an important part of everything we’re doing, we want him to be lined up with this restoration.”

When you pull into this town, one of the first things you can see is Hamilton County Junior/Senior High School. It sits on Jerry Sloan Drive. And if you follow the drive around to the back of the school, you find the gymnasium named for the late Utah Jazz Coach. “I probably first met Coach Sloan in the fourth grade at his basketball camp here in town,” said Doug Miller, the boy’s basketball coach for Sloan’s old team, the Hamilton County High School Foxes.
Back at the high school, Jerry Sloan’s trophy case sites next to that of his son, Brian, who in 1984 was Mr. Basketball in Illinois and pushed the Foxes to a state championship. Above Jerry Sloan Court hangs the namesake’s photo and a photo of the team his daughter Holly played on. The squad won third place in the state tournament in 1987. Miller said for years Hamilton County has run many of the same plays as the Utah Jazz.
