Matt Ashley expected to red shirt during his first season with Findlay College’s basketball team in Ohio, but those plans changed when injuries to other players forced the Oilers to suit up the former Kubasaki star and last year’s Far East Division I tournament MVP.

And what a night it was for Oilers basketball on Monday at Croy Gymnasium, when Findlay set a school record with 120 points, won its fifth straight game and went over the 100-point plateau for the third straight game in a 120-67 win over Carlow.

Ashley pitched in with nine points and six rebounds off the bench and the Oilers scored a whopping 73 points in the second half to improve to 10-3 on the season and 4-2 in the Division II Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
