Ashby boys' basketball: Arrows bounce FrazeeMickelson, Ohren lead the Arrows to their 18th win
The Ashby boys’ basketball team rebounded from its second loss of the season by beating Frazee 57-47 on Tuesday night.
The Arrows led 34-27 at the break and held the Hornets to just 20 points after halftime. That was important as Ashby struggled to get much going offensively itself.
“Any time you win on the road it is a good win,” head coach Jeremy Knick said. “But I honestly think we lacked energy during chunks of this game. We did a lot of good things. I thought we got good contributions from our bench, especially Dylan Barry giving us six points and three rebounds. I thought we did some good things on defense. Blake Ohren came up with five steals, and J.P. Moe, Tanner Langlie and Riley Mickelson had three steals each.
“I would have liked to see us be more aggressive offensively. We settled or forced some shots when we could have gotten a better one, and I wish we would have pushed the ball more. It was on the offensive side of the ball where I felt we looked a little flat at times.”
Mickelson led the Arrows in scoring with 19 to go along with 12 rebounds. Ohren added 15 points, five rebounds, five steals and five assists and Moe added 10 points to his three takeaways.
The win moved Ashby to 18-2 overall as the Arrows got set to embark on a three-game road trip. The first of those games comes tonight, Friday, in Underwood before going to top-ranked Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa next Monday night. The Jaguars remain unbeaten at 22-0 and are beating teams by almost 28 points per game.
