Fuller drains eight 3s in Ashland win

PHOENIX — Phoenix went toe-to-toe with Ashland for as long as it could in nonconference boys basketball Tuesday before the Grizzlies pulled away for a 65-47 victory.

Peyton Fuller, a 6-foot-2 senior guard, made eight 3-pointers and scored 25 points as Ashland improved to 1-1.

The Grizzlies led by two at halftime and by seven entering the fourth quarter.

“Ashland’s size and strength ultimately wore us out,” said first-year Phoenix coach Troy McNichols. “The physicality of the game just overtook us. They got a lot of offensive rebounds and putbacks.”

Then there was Fuller, who seemingly couldn’t miss.

“They just found a way to get him open, and he was extremely hot. Let’s just put it that way,” said McNichols.

McKane Ellis added 10 points for Ashland, which outscored Phoenix 23-12 in the fourth.

James Turnbull tallied 12 points and Thomas Skaff and Ethan Hutsell 10 each for the Pirates (0-2).
