With another standout defensive performance, Pacific made it six boys basketball victories in a row last Friday at home over New Haven.

The Indians (6-2, 2-0) were in control for most of the night in a 60-22 Four Rivers Conference win over the Shamrocks.

“Defensively, I couldn’t ask for much more. We guarded them very well. We limited what they wanted to do offensively,” said Pacific Head Coach John VanLeer. “We also rebounded well, shot the ball well and had only six or seven turnovers.”

Meanwhile, nothing seemed to go right for the Shamrocks (4-4, 0-2).

“We played poorly and they played great. That’s not a good combination,” said New Haven Head Coach Ray Steinhoff. “They outplayed us in every way. They broke us down defensively and made it hard for us to guard them, especially on the pick and roll. Offensively, we had some good shots from 15 to 17 feet, but shot poorly. We had a hard time getting the ball to the basket. They kept us in front of them.”

Tanner Brown and Cullen VanLeer both scored 15 points for Pacific. Jeffrey Hinkle added 10 points.

Brown hit three three-pointers, all in the first 11 minutes of the game. VanLeer added 11 assists and six rebounds.

“We’ve been waiting for Tanner to break out offensively. He’s capable of being one of our top scorers every night,” VanLeer said. “Since the second half of our Farmington game along with Union and New Haven, Jeffrey has been much more aggressive on the boards and has looked to score more.”

Neil DeBold finished the game with seven points. Noah Boyer added five points. Brendan Jett-Kell netted three points.

Zeth Boyer and Logan Armstrong both scored two points. Boyer added five rebounds, three assists and three steals. Brett Mann had one point.

Seth Schenck paced the Shamrocks with seven points. Austin Madden added five points. Kyle Ruediger collected four points and nine rebounds.

Ross Seitter, Ben Luecke and Alex Poggas each had two points and three rebounds.

Leading 16-10 early in the second quarter, Pacific went on a 17-0 run over the final six minutes of the period to extend its advantage to 33-10 at halftime.

“We had too many turnovers. We played rushed and didn’t take care of the ball,” Steinhoff said. “You have to give Pacific’s kids credit. They were alert to the things we were running and knew how to take it away from us.”

Pacific outscored New Haven 19-6 in the third quarter to make the score 52-16 heading into the final eight minutes.

“We were expecting a tough game with New Haven all the way until the end. We just made things tough on them and took some things away,” VanLeer said. “We’ve played well this season, even in our two losses. We have two tough games coming up this week. We’ll have our work cut out for us.”

The Indians also won the JV game over the Shamrocks.

“We need to get back on the right foot this week against some schools more our size,” Steinhoff said. “We’d like to go into the break with a couple of wins.”
