Danville splits basketball doubleheader

DANVILLE — The Danville boys’ and girls’ basketball teams hosted Sagamore Conference foe North Montgomery for a doubleheader Friday night.

The boys were able to come out with a victory and the girls struggled in defeat.


It wasn’t pretty and it wasn’t ugly, but the Danville Warriors found a way to win last night.

A 24-3 run in the final 10 minutes propelled the Warriors to a 48-35 Sagamore Conference victory over North Montgomery.

“It was one of those games where you had to keep working yourself into a rhythm,” Danville coach Brian Barber said. “It took us a while to get into a rhythm. I don’t know if it was a hangover from the county tourney or what. But we fought through it.”

Barber told his team that he did not think they were ready to play before the game and it showed as Danville (11-2, 3-1 conference) trailed at halftime and after the third quarter.

North Montgomery (2-9, 1-2 conference) led 32-24 in the third quarter before the Warriors woke up.

Two consecutive timeouts by Barber grabbed the team’s attention.

“Our coach, as you saw when he took those two straight timeouts, he didn’t really have much to yell but he definitely got to us,” senior Ian Asher said.

Asher proceeded to scored four of his team-high 14 points to start the run at the end of the third quarter.

“You could tell once we got on a run, our focus got there,” Asher said.

Scott Amor’s corner 3-pointer, after a patient possession waiting for the right shot, gave Danville the lead and they never looked back.

“I thought our intensity level picked up. We were a lot more sharp mentally as well as emotionally,” Barber said. “There’s no such thing as coming out flat, a lot of that had to do with North Montgomery. They did a good job in their half court defense, packing everybody in there and we had trouble with our perimeter shots.”
