Central Valley High School's junior-varsity boys basketball team defeated Livingston and Pacheco by a combined 93 points last week.

The Hawks improved to 17-5 on the year and remained in a tie for first place in the Western Athletic Conference standings with Central Catholic.

"We're working towards winning a league title," head coach Jordan Dickson said. "We should be able to get there as long as they keep working hard. I'm not surprised. This group of kids is talented."

Five players scored in double figures during Central Valley's 86-46 annihilation of visiting Livingston on Friday.

Ravinder Singh had a team-high 16 points for the Hawks, who won their sixth straight game.

Moses Ghiorso tallied 12 points.

Simron Singh and David Glukhovskiy totaled 11 points each.

Lorenz Johnson collected 10 points.

Reuben Rodriguez and Josh Sidhu chipped in with seven points apiece.

Shan Chahal, Bobby Nieto, Nathan Perine, Jonny Pittman and Compass Roberts all contributed two points.

The Hawks held a slim 15-12 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Central Valley set a season-high for points in a single quarter with 34 in the second period.

"I don't think we were prepared to play in the first quarter," Dickson said. "Livingston played very hard. That woke up my kids."

Central Valley outscored Pacheco 33-11 in the opening period and coasted to a 79-26 home victory on Wednesday.

Rodriguez paced the Hawks with 14 points.

Glukhovskiy, Johnson, Robbins and Singh had 11, 10, nine and eight points, respectively.

Ghiorso and Sidhu both scored seven points.

Pittman, Perine and Roberts finished with six, four and three points apiece.

Central Valley led 54-16 at the break.

The Hawks will face Los Banos today and Patterson on Friday. Both road games will begin at 6:30 p.m.

"It's going to be a tough week," Dickson said. "Offensively, we've been getting a lot better. I love watching them play defense. They play so fast and smart. We're a fun team to watch."
