Underclassmen step up in big moments for Lady Dinos

In the past few years, the Carbon High girls basketball team has relied upon the contributions from juniors and seniors in key situations.

But against Juan Diego in the First Round of the 3A State Tournament, it was the key play of three underclassmen in addition to the juniors and seniors that helped Carbon High pull out the upset win 33-31 on Friday evening.

Sophomore Morgan Hillam had varsity career highs of 11 points and eight rebounds.

Sophomore Jordan Scoggins had five points, including the go-ahead runner with less than 30 seconds left in the game.

And freshman Lindsey Blanc hit three key free throws over the final minute of the game to help seal the victory and help Carbon advance in the tournament.

"The kids grew up tonight," said CHS Head Coach Ted Bianco.

Senior Shelby Cornforth said she and fellow senior Annika Hansen did not want their season to end on a game like this.

"We didn't want to play our last game," said Cornforth.

While she had to leave the game early with foul trouble, Cornforth said she was comfortable with the play of the underclassmen during key moments.

"Morgan played great, Jordan's shot helped set the tone down the stretch and Lindsey made that big free throw at the end," said Cornforth. "Seeing them (the underclassmen) make those plays at the end, it makes us as seniors more comfortable to know that they can step in and make plays to help us win."
