Ashford aim: Playing best basketball

(Continued)

Other Saints who found double-digit points included a pair of 16-point performances from Anthony Woods and Tevin Harris off the bench, 15 points by DeAndre Lowery and Josh Little put up 10 points and 10 rebounds in the win.

“Having five guys who made good plays makes us hard to guard,” Drake said. “We exposed them on getting some mismatches on some inside-out game, and overall, our guys deserve all the credit for this one.”

Now that it’s February, Drake believes the Saints need to keep riding the five-game winning streak and turn it into something bigger.

“We’ve been challenging our guys to improve on a daily basis, and we need to be jelling the most when it means the most, and we’ve done that in the last couple games. We feel we’re getting there, but there’s still work to be done in practice and in games.”
