Despite several turnovers throughout the night, the Carbon High Dino basketball team beat the Uintah High Utes 57-49 Wednesday in Price.
Jordan Blanc and Dakota Cisneros led the Dino offense with 11 points each. Clay Finkbiner added 10 points.
CarbonвЂ™s coaches were pleased with the win, but they acknowledged the team could have played better.
вЂњWe need to take care of the ball a little better,вЂќ said coach Kyle Wilson. вЂњWe had a pretty high number of turnovers tonight.вЂќ
Wilson was particularly pleased with the DinosвЂ™ style of play.
вЂњI think for the most part, especially the first half, we kept under control running the floor,вЂќ Wilson said. вЂњI thought we took [the ball] to the basket and went to the [free throw] line pretty easily.вЂќ
UintahвЂ™s Mathew Cushing scored a game-high 24 points.
Carbon improved to 6-2 on the season. The Dinos next visit Grand on Jan. 4 at 7 p.m.
The game was broadcast live on ETV Channel 10 and will be rebroadcast throughout the coming weeks.
