For the first time since 1995, the Carbon Dinos boys’ basketball team is into the second round of the 3A Playoffs after a 54-46 win over the Tooele Buffaloes Friday night in Tooele.
After scoring just three points in the opening quarter, the Dinos rebounded, outscoring the Buffaloes 17-10 in the second and 15-6 in the third to grind out the win.
The Dinos will take on the Ridgeline Riverhawks in the 3A Quarterfinals at 11:10 a.m on Thursday at Utah State University. The Riverhawks beat the Hurricane Tigers 72-59 earlier Friday for a spot in the quarterfinals.
Kyle Quinton led the Dinos with 17 points on 5-9 from the field. He also went 7-10 from the free throw line. Chase Morgan nailed two 3-pointers in the game en route to 10 points. Gage Daugherty and Jamin Jensen each chipped in eight.
