Defense the key for Dino boys in early season play

With struggles on offense, defensive play can be the difference in a win or loss, Cisneros says

After losing several key pieces of their 3A State Tournament team from last season, the Carbon High boys basketball had plenty of areas to address over offseason.

After playing through their first six games, the Dinos have a record of 1-5.

While the record is not something CHS head coach Jeff Cisneros or the players wanted to experience, the early season games can be viewed as character building for the team down the stretch.

"We're still searching for our identity as a team right now," said Cisneros, noting the group of senior leaders the team lost to graduation from last season.

In four games over the past week, the Dinos went 1-3, averaging 38 points per game in losses to Union, Ben Lomond and South Summit. The latter two games came during the Ben Lomond Pepsi Classic from Dec. 5 - 7.

The Dinos were able to close out the tournament on a high note defeating 4A Ogden 67-59, in which the Dinos hit 31-of-39 free throws to help secure the victory.

While the team has struggled on offense, Cisneros believes a strong effort on defense can help give the team a boost.

"Our team has to become defensive minded out on the floor and hopefully we can use our play on defense to help create scoring opportunities on offense," he said.
