Scioto's Ashwill to play college basketball
Dublin Scioto senior Josh Ashwill will be signing over the next few days to play men's basketball at Mount Vernon Nazarene University.
This winter for the Irish, the 6-2 guard averaged a team-high 17.3 points, 7.1 rebounds and four assists while leading them to their first winning season since 2008-09. The Irish went 18-5 overall and were second in the OCC-Cardinal at 11-3.
Ashwill was second-team all-district, first-team all-league and made the ThisWeek Super 12.
"I just feel like it's a good fit," Ashwill said. "Plus, it's not too far or too close to home and I really like the coaches a lot."
MVNU went 11-19 last season. Central Ohio players on the Cougars' roster included Jacob Starinsky (Hilliard Bradley), Luke Shetler (Shekinah Christian), Jonathan Roby (Shekinah Christian), Jason Dawson (Worthington Christian), Matt Anglea (Worthington Christian), Zach Zeltman (Fairfield Christian) and Julian Henderson (Thomas Worthington).
