EUGENE — Ashland High's Matt Lipski was a man amongst boys once again when the Class 5A Grizzlies matched up against Class 6A Sheldon on Friday.

The 6-foot-9, 300-plus pound center scored a game-high 19 points and pulled down double digits in rebounds to lead Ashland to a 59-45 victory in nonconference boys basketball.

Lipski is averaging just over 20 points per game in Ashland's last three contests. The Grizzlies have won three of their last four after a 1-5 start.

"Great win, awesome win," said first-year coach Larry Kellem. "This is by far the biggest win of the season for us. The kids stepped up and beat a very good team tonight."

Ashland (4-6) jumped out to a 15-3 lead in the first quarter.

Sheldon, which trailed 37-23 at the half, cut the deficit to 45-37 heading into the fourth quarter but could not stymie Ashland's offensive rhythm with its full-court pressure.

Point guard Cameron Clement scored all eight of his points in the second half and handled the bulk of the ballhandling duties against the pressure.

Lipski powered his way to basket after basket against Sheldon's man-to-man defense.

"He is our go-to guy," said Kellem. "He is definitely our anchor."

Garrett Tygerson added 14 points for the Grizzlies, while Curtis White paced Sheldon with 10 points.
