Ashby girls fall to Wheaton

Published 10:39am Tuesday, February 4, 2014

WHEATON —The Ashby girls basketball team struggled from the field, shooting 20 percent in a 60-49 loss to the hosting Wheaton/Herman-Norcross Warriors Monday.

The Arrows only trailed by six at the break, but could not get the ball through the hoop.

“In order to be competitive we need to improve on getting good shots, and capitalizing when we do have good looks at the basket,” Arrows’ coach Troy Mickelson said. “We came out and played well on defense and forced 13 steals. I thought our ladies played very well on the defensive end tonight.”

Cassandra Jordan continues to be a force on offense for the Arrows as she scored 17 points and pulled down nine rebounds, while teammate Madison VanSanten was also in double figures with 10 tallies.

The Arrows will now travel to take on Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
