Wahoo was never able to fully put Ashland away in the fourth quarter, but the Bluejays did not get closer than 13 points down the stretch.
“We had a really nice first half. We were moving the ball really well, and were really active on the defensive end. I would have liked to played a better second half, but give Ashland credit for playing really hard and chipping away at our lead.” Said Coach Kevin Scheef.
Winston Cook led Wahoo with 21 points and 12 boards. Blake Lacey added 14 points. Thomas Waido contributed 12 points, 6 boards, and 4 steals. Karson Hesser added 8 boards, and 4 assists.
