Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Juan Diego in first round

Edward’s evaluation: Late-season collapse was erased with play-in game victory over Payson on Tuesday. The Dinos open with Juan Diego, a team it lost to 60-50 back on Jan. 10. However, Carbon traditionally plays well in the state tournament and it features one of the top scoring defenses in 3A, which gives them hope at a potential first-round upset.
