Photography Question

external flash or not

I have a nikon 8700 that I bought mainly for basketball games. I also have an external flash. It seems that my pictures are better without the external flash. Am I doing something wrong on the settings. The pictures without it are still a little dark. Help!!!

Sue E. Webster   I have already enhanced them in photo shop. But they seem to be darker with the external flash. Thanks for responding, any hints are welcomed.

Kerry L. Walker   Sounds like the external flahs may not be strong enough for the f/stop you are using. Not sure. Maybe some other folks will have some suggestions.
