Scott Co. Connection Fuels Eagles
WILMORE, Ky. – Asbury won their season-best third in a row on Saturday, defeating St. Louis Pharmacy 74-47, the fewest points they have allowed since a 74-45 win over Pharmacy last year.
The Eagles (10-12, 4-4 KIAC) were led by a pair of former Scott County High School teammates, Austin Flannery and Dakotah Euton. Flannery led all scorers with 23 points on seven-of-12 shooting. The sophomore guard knocked down five threes and four-of-five free throws. Euton, a sophomore transfer, added 20 points and 12 rebounds, his first double-double since December 9 against Central Christian (Mo.). It was his fourth double-double overall which leads the team.
Asbury built a 14-point halftime lead at 36-22 before methodically pushing the margin to 20 for good with five minutes left in the game. The lead would swell to 27 with a three from Bradley Strait with just under a minute to play.
The Eagles shot 43 percent from the floor while holding the Eutectics to 27 percent shooting. Shawn Menckowski led the Eutectics with 13 points. Asbury connected on 14 three-pointers while the Eutectics made only 16 total field goals.
Asbury moves back into fourth place in the KIAC, a game ahead of Alice Lloyd (4-6 KIAC) after they lost to Indiana East earlier today. Asbury and Alice Lloyd will meet in the Luce on February 14. The Eagles will look to hold on to fourth place and a home game in the first round of the KIAC Tournament on February 25.
The Eagles will host Berea on Tuesday at 8 p.m.
