Ashford aim: Playing best basketball


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.”

  • Jones leaves UNO program

    Jalen Jones is done with basketball — for now, anyway.
    The 6-foot-5 Clinton High grad who had committed to play for Nebraska-Omaha, has left the program, and according to his Facebook page, has enrolled at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids.
    The enrollment office at the community college confirmed that Jones was registered for classes this fall at Kirkwood. Kirkwood coach Bryan Petersen, a Clinton High graduate, declined to comment and gave no indication that Jones would play basketball for the Eagles this winter.
    "College basketball isn't for everybody," Clinton coach Nick Lawrence said. "A little time away might do him some good."
    Jones came home to Clinton after spending just a few days with the Mavericks, and enrolled to Kirkwood shortly thereafter.
    Jones, the Herald's Player of the Year, averaged 19 points a game for the River Kings in his senior season and finished with the second-most rebounds with 160.
    He shot 41 percent on the floor and 28 percent from 3-point territory. He committed to Omaha before last season started in October.
