First State Bank Sports Spotlight: Winning with Wing

Published 10:59am Tuesday, December 31, 2013

With four losses to start the year, the Ashby boys basketball team was looking for whatever spark it could to get back into the long season.

Four games later, the Arrows are flying straight again. With four victories in a row to even its record, Ashby has new life.

Much of the early season improvement is thanks the performance of senior guard Morgan Wing.

I sat down with Wing to learn more about is life off the court and his plans for the future.

Q. What is your favorite subject in school?

A. Probably anatomy.

Q. Why anatomy?

A. I really enjoy the teacher.

Q. Any plans for next year yet?

A. I’m going to attend North Dakota State University and go for something in psychology.

Q. Do you have a favorite sports memory of playing at Ashby?

A. When Blake (Ohren, his teammate) dunked it in Hancock last year, that was pretty awesome.

Q. Do you just play basketball?

A. No, I play baseball as well.

Q. What’s your first love if you had to pick between baseball and basketball?

A. Basketball.

Q. How long have you been playing ball?

A. Since like third or fourth grade.

Q. What do you like most about basketball?

A. Playing with a team and winning.

Q. Who is your favorite NBA player?

A. Steph Curry. He’s a great shooter and he does pretty much everything a point guard should do.

Q. Any hobbies outside of sports?

A. I do a lot of hunting and fishing.

Q. How was your season this year?

A. Pretty good. I went up to Canada and got quite a few birds.
