Basketball team can’t stop Union

by Jen Watkins, Of the Record staff

The Park City High School boys’ basketball team suffered a 46-44 loss at Union Jan. 22.

"I thought we played hard but struggled to execute," coach Caleb Fine said. "It was a game that favored Union."

Fine said he takes the blame for the Miners’ loss, saying he should have called more timeouts down the stretch.

"I was pretty frustrated after the loss," Fine said. "I felt like we let one get away that we could have won. As long as learn from it, it’s not going to ruin our season."

The Miners are now tied for second place in Region 10.

Fine said he will be holding the athletes more accountable than ever.

"I will not accept a lack of energy," he said. "There’s only 12 days left of the season and then it comes to playoffs."

The Miners traveled to American Leadership Academy on Jan. 29. Results were unavailable at press time.

Fine said the Miners need to focus on putting up more points and executing offense before they travel to Wasatch on Feb. 2.

"I’m excited to get Wasatch again," he said. "We’re banged up but the kids will be excited for the Wasatch game. I’m confident we’ll compete with Wasatch again if we make the right decisions and defend with purpose. But Wasatch is the best for a reason."
