Warriors rough up Redskins

DANVILLE — As opening boys’ basketball games go, Danville’s effort Wednesday night could not have gone much better.

The Warriors outhustled, outworked and simply outplayed the visiting Indianapolis Manual Redskins to the tune of an 87-39 victory.

“I really liked our effort and we brought really good energy all game,” Danville coach Brian Barber said. “I thought our guys did a good job coming out and establishing what we wanted to do which was press, play up tempo and play aggressive defense. We played with a lot of energy and that’s how you get better as the year goes on.”

Led by the scoring of seniors Avery Motes and Ian Asher, Danville jumped on top of the visiting Redskins with an 11-2 run and never looked back. Motes finished with 25 while Asher added 21.

“I thought he did a good job not forcing things tonight,” Barber said of Motes. “Now, with a guy like Ian handling the ball, it will give him some better looks coming off screens and doing some more things away from the ball that he is very good at.”

Asher, a transfer from Covenant Christian adds another dimension to the Warriors’ offense this season both with his ability to score, but more importantly his distribution of the ball.  Asher made several slick passes to open teammates while drawing defenders off penetration.

“Last year Avery was probably the only true playmaker we had and this season Ian gives us a second,” Barber said. “He can shoot it outside or drive to the hole. He has great savvy and threaded the needle on some passes. We told our big guys that if they run the floor, he will see them and get them the ball.”

Also impressive for the Warriors was their relentless defensive pressure. Manual had great difficulty bringing the ball up the court, getting into an offensive set and putting up shots.
