On the year, Asher averaged 17 points, five assists, and four rebounds, numbers that could have been even better were it not for playing through a broken hand. Twice this year, he topped the 30-point barrier, including a 31-point performance at Bankers Life Fieldhouse against the Cascade Cadets and his career high 39 points against Beech Grove.
“I’ll always remember my game against Beech Grove,” Asher said. “I didn’t think it was possible for someone like me to do, but my teammates helped me then. And I’ll also remember both Avon games — even the one we lost — that came down to a last second shot. We played as hard as we could, and I thank my teammates for that.”
High school basketball may be over for Asher, but he will continue playing at Wheaton College in Illinois, a top Division III program.
“(Wheaton) is in one of the best conferences in all of Division III basketball,” Asher said. “It wasn’t necessarily as big of a level as I would have liked to play, but it’s not like I’m settling. My biggest thing is going into ministry, and Wheaton has a big program for that. I want to go live my dream (pursuing the ministry) and playing basketball.”
