Central Valley High School's junior-varsity boys basketball team demolished Pacheco 80-28 in front of its homecoming crowd on Friday in Ceres.

The Hawks buried a season-high 13 3-pointers and limited the Panthers to single digits in three of the four quarters.

"That's the best we've played in five or six games," Central Valley head coach Jordan Dickson said. "We hit a slump before the El Capitan game. They played at another level against Pacheco. Hopefully, that's a good omen for what's to happen."

The second-place Hawks improved to 16-1 overall and 3-1 in the WAC standings.

First-place Patterson snapped Central Valley's 13-game winning streak on Jan. 7.

"It was a good thing they were upset about losing," Dickson said. "It left a bad taste in the kids' mouths. It took us time to get over it."

Central Valley's Shan Chahal hit six treys and totaled a game-high 23 points versus Pacheco.

Harinder Sidhu buried four treys and tallied 14 points.

David Glukhovskiy made three treys and collected 11 points.

Jaspreet Singh, Jacob Guerrero and Jonathan Barragan chipped in with 11, six and five points, respectively.

Wilbert Soriano and Erik Mejia both had four points.

Chase Winchester and Rodney Stahl scored two points each.

Central Valley made 11 treys en route to building a 54-17 lead in the opening half.

Pacheco trailed 76-25 heading into the fourth quarter.

The Hawks collected their third straight win in dominant fashion.

"I don't want to run up the score on any team," Dickson said.

Central Valley won, 61-31, at Los Banos on Wednesday.

Glukhovskiy paced the Hawks with 12 points.

Sidhu and Nick Garcia netted nine and six points, respectively.

Guerrero, Chahal and Singh all contributed five points.

Oso Fregoso scored four points.

Soriano added two points.

Winchester had one point.

Central Valley will host Livingston today and play at Ceres High (10-3, 3-1) on Friday. Both games will begin at 6 p.m.

The Hawks and crosstown Bulldogs both lost to Patterson in WAC play.

"Ceres is always a tough game because of the emotion involved," Dickson said. "We have the talent to beat them."
