The first home loss of the season for Pacific boys basketball came in the regular-season finale.
The Indians (20-5) finished the season with a 7-1 home record after taking a 58-47 loss to Farmington Thursday.
The loss ended a seven-game winning streak for Pacific.
“They’ve got some good wins over some quality people,” Head Coach John VanLeer said. “It’s really a good game for us to have going into districts. You don’t want to end with a loss on senior night, but a loss doesn’t hurt as long as you learn from it.”
Pacific jumped out to a 17-11 lead at the end of the first quarter before the Indians’ shooting percentage started to cool off.
Farmington came back and took a 26-25 lead into halftime.
“It was just a night where shots weren’t falling for us and give Farmington credit,” VanLeer said. “We ran our plays where our guys are usually open and they weren’t open last night. They were just super, super solid defensively.”
Pacific shot just 36 percent from the field on the night and just 5-22 on three-point attempts.
Farmington led 40-36 after three quarters before pulling away by outscoring Pacific 18-11 in the final period.
Cameron VanLeer led the Indians with 17 points and 11 rebounds, completing his 10th double-double of the season and his third in a row. He also dealt out four assists.
Ryan Sauvage was second on the scoresheet for Pacific with 11 points. Sauvage added two rebounds and came up with a steal.
Jordan Cowsert netted six points with four rebounds and one assist.
Tom Hennessy finished with five points.
Trey Boyer and Mason Fleming added three points apiece.
Boyer pulled down two rebounds and matched Cameron VanLeer for the team lead in assists on the night with four.
Matt Strong scored two points with two rebounds, two assists and one steal.
Nicholas Hoerchler recorded one rebound.
Pacific enters the Class 4 District 6 Tournament as the No. 1 seed in search of a district title that has proven elusive to this point.
The Indians play their first game Tuesday at 5:30 p.m., against the winner between Saturday’s first-round matchup of No. 4 Sullivan and fifth-seeded Parkway West.
