If the preseason is a preview of things to come, the Lady Dinos have a lot to look forward to during the upcoming basketball season.

After competing in only six games so far, the Dinos find themselves with a 5-1 record, with four of these wins coming since the Thanksgiving break, and all in a row.

It seems as if the Dinos have found their groove and no other team can break it.

The most recent opponent to fall at the hands of the Dinos was Uintah who hosted the Carbon team last Tuesday evening.

During this match up, the Dinos played strong and didn't allow the Utes to rally much of a comeback.

With the assistance of Dino senior, Chelsey Warburton, Carbon rallied a shooting frenzy against Uintah.

Warburton completed the game with 26 points as the Dinos moved on to capture the 59-28 preseason victory.

Currently, Warburton is ranked third in scoring in the 3A standings with an average of 21 points per game. This average comes after Warburton scored 105 points in five games.

Also offering continuous assistance to the Dino ball club is Morgan Warburton. The second year Dino has turned heads with her ball handling and shooting skills and posted 14 points against the Utes earlier this week.

The younger Warburton has also been named as the prep female athlete of the week by the Salt Lake Tribune. Currently, Warburton averages 16 points per game and has become a dominant force underneath the basket for the Dinos.

The Uintah match up found most of the Dino sqad competing. The bench offered quite a bit assistance with Michelle Ruden scoring a three-point field goal.

The remaining starters also performed well as Brittney Pollastro scored six points and Danielle Julian four.

The Dinos will resume competition Thursday as they begin the annual three day Bear River Tournament.

With the Dinos on fire, it is expected that the team will do quite well at the tournament, thus increasing the win column to their current standings.
