Boys’ basketball teams ready to hit the court



Barber has all juniors and seniors on the varsity squad, including seven seniors, the most in his tenure at Danville.

“We have a lot of guys with a lot of experience and they got a lot of opportunities last year by playing in big games,” Barber said.

After graduating two seniors from the 8-11 2011 team, Barber believes last year’s experience will help the 2012 team.

“You can just tell everyone is a year older, more mature,” he said. “Last year some guys were just happy being a varsity player. This year our guys obviously have a lot more goals they want to accomplish.”

Expecting to lead the way for the Warriors are seniors Avery Motes and Ian Asher.

Motes averaged a team-high 16.7 points per game and 41 percent shooting from beyond the arc last season. He also led the Warriors in total points scored, despite missing five games with an ankle injury.

“He’s just a hard-nosed, old school kind of guy,” Barber said of Motes. “He works really hard on all aspects of his game and has just a great attitude about himself.”

Barber describes Motes as a do-it-all type of player.

“He can do a lot of things for us,” Barber said. “He can drive to basket, he can hit the open guy, he can shoot the three, and he’s gained a lot of strength this offseason. He just has a great presence about him on the floor.”

Asher is a transfer from Covenant Christian who averaged a second-best 13.8 points per game for the Warriors last season. Barber believes he’s a versatile player who can help take some of opposing teams’ focus off of Motes.

“He’s another playmaker,” Barber said. “He can drive to the basket, he can shoot the ball, he’s very athletic and very versatile. He can play the point for us and a lot of time he probably is going to be our point guard on the floor. He just has a very good savvy about himself.”
