That snapped a three-game losing streak for the Arrows.

Blake Ohren did a little bit of everything as he finished with eight points, 15 rebounds, nine assists and five blocks. Morgan Wing had a big night with 26 points and Evan Anderson also had double figures with 10 points. Preston Riewer had 14 points to lead the Bears.

“It was good to get a win tonight,” Ashby head coach Jeremy Knick said. “The guys needed this one. They needed to start believing again. Our defense was pretty solid all night. We limited them to one shot most possessions, and we got a lot of deflections. I was extremely happy with our chemistry and communication. There were guys doing different things tonight that made everyone better.”

The Ashby boys couldn’t get their offense going in a 51-37 loss to Browerville on Thursday night. The Arrows led 23-19 at the half but got outscored 32-14 the rest of the way. Ashby shot just 21 percent from the field in the second half.

“We did a really nice job of contesting shots on defense the first half,” head coach Jeremy Knick said. “Offensively, we looked really hesitant to do the things we can do. We were very passive. Not aggressive to get to the rim at all.”

Morgan Wing led the Arrows with nine points and 10 rebounds. The split moved Ashby to 8-8 overall.
