Another blow-out for Lady Dinos

It took them a little while to get going in Thursday's game against North Sevier, but once they did, the Carbon Lady Dinos put the hurt on their second team in a row. They soundly defeated the Wolves 55-33 in front of a sparse hometown crowd.

Word had it that this was to be an easy win for the Dinos. But as the first quarter got underway, it was the Dinos trailing 7-0. A time-out called by Coach Cami Carlson reminded the girls that they had to focus on this game and not next weeks meeting against their nemisis Morgan.

It didn't take the team long to buckle down and find themselves up 15-7 in a blink. The team got down to business with their stifling defense and began to force turnovers and mistakes from North Sanpete. The Dinos offense also got on track and they began to move the ball and get inside for some sweet shots. In the second quarter the Dino offense out scored the Wolves 28-3.

At the half the Dino coaching decided to pull back on the press and set the team into a defense they have struggled with to let them work things out in a game setting. They also changed things up on the floor, putting out different combinations of players who usually didn't see playing time together. Carbon still continued to pull away and that let many younger players get in the game. Thirteen different players took to the hardwood for the Dinos. The sophomores and JV treams had dominated their games as well and Coach Carlson felt like they had earned some varsity minutes.

The younger players have a role model to look up to. Sophomore Tia Pappas is getting some great minutes. She was named the player of the game for her overall hustle in every aspect of the game. Pappas finished with 13 points, six rebounds, seven steals and four assists. Patricia Smith led the scoring effort with 15 points. She picked the pocket of the Wolves five times.

Now the team can turn their sites to their game against Morgan this Tuesday night. This will give the Dinos a taste of state tournament competition.
