Winless in seven Region 12 games entering Friday, Juab looked like the team with the winning record and won the back and forth battle with the Dinos, 62-59.
Head Coach Jeff Cisneros said the key to the game was effort.
“It looks like there was no effort tonight, bottom line. Just no effort,” he said. “I’m tired of guys giving effort when they want and not giving it when they don’t.”
Derek Young led the Dinos with 18 points and eight rebounds. Clay Finkbiner poured in four three-point buckets en route to 12 points.
The Dinos have dropped four of their last five contests and now sit at 3-5 in Region 12 play and 10-8 overall.
Carbon travels to North Sanpete Tuesday. The Dinos and the Hawks have identical records in region play.
