After scoring 35 points through his first eight games, though entering the winter break with a 14-point performance, Montrose’s Ashden Oberg has found his groove.

Facing Cañon City on Thursday, Oberg scored 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting. He was efficient on Friday despite foul trouble, netting 10 points and six rebounds in the Indians’ win.

“He’s playing well,” Montrose coach Ryan Voehringer said. “He played well defensively (on Friday) and is playing hard. He’s had 30 points the last two games. We’re going to need him down the stretch.”

Oberg pulled down six rebounds on Friday despite playing just four minutes in the first half.

His 20 points on Thursday matched a career high. He added three rebounds and two steals. From the free-throw-line, he was almost perfect, knocking down 4-of-5.

Oberg’s efficiency has also been on the rise. After Thursday’s game, he was 13-for-17 from the field in his past two contests.
