If that is the blueprint for success Danville has already laid the foundation. Saturday night could not have been a better indication that this team is improving. Along with Asher’s performance, fellow seniors Avery Motes and C.J. Just contributed to the cause with a relentless effort. Motes was singlehandedly responsible for a 9-0 run that was the result of three straight 3-pointers while Just had two drives that ended with two points and a free throw before Barber emptied his bench.
“I caught the ball on the third one and I was feeling it and I knew the shots were going in,” Motes said.
“Tonight I was just in the zone,” Just said. “I haven’t been doing my roll so I knew I had to step it up.”
But the bigger story for those three is the paths that got them all to Danville, together. Asher, who left after his freshman year, transferred back from Covenant Christian at the beginning of this year while Just didn’t arrive at Danville until his sophomore year after he transferred from Avon.
Going forward there is only one goal.
“Not let our season end,” Asher said. “I love these guys. I’ve never had a bond like I’ve had with them.”
