Boys basketball: Arrows fall to Hillcrest

The Ashby boys basketball team couldn't find its offense in a low-scoring loss to Hillcrest Lutheran Academy on Tuesday night.

The Comets (13-6, 7-3 Little Eight Conference) won 48-26 as they held the Arrows (4-16, 0-10 LEC) to their lowest point total of the season.

"Both teams played a tight first half," Ashby head coach Jeremy Knick said. "There were a lot of turnovers and loose balls. We were only down 20-14. The second half, we just couldn't handle their pressure. We knew what they bring, but we just got rattled on offense. We had 29 turnovers. That is obviously way too many to give yourself a chance to be in a game."

Scott Johnson had eight points and four steals to lead the Arrows. Jaden Norby added six points, eight rebounds and two assists, while Christian Norby chipped in six points and four boards.


ASHBY - Jaden Norby - 6 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists; Johnson - 8 points, 4 steals; C. Norby - 6 points, 4 rebounds; Christian Koefod - 3 points, 2 assists; Noah Johnson - 3 points, 2 rebounds; Dakota Ecker - 2 assists
