LA JOLLA (12-16-16) — West Hills could not handle 6-foot-6 Harvard-bound Reed Farley, who knocked down 19 points and drove in 3 treys, finishing with 6 for 7 on free throws along with 18 rebounds.

The Wolf Pack made a go of it though, but couldn’t get more than 2 points from any of their starters except for CAMERON BARRY, who punched in 19 points including 3 treys and 6 of 7 free throws.

The game got off to a rather humorous start as a fan blew a vuvezela during the first quarter. However, the referees banned the horn-blowers’ instrument after the Vikings led 16-15 at the end of the period.

Barry canned a three-pointer just 2:13 into the game which gave the Wolf Pack an early 9-2 edge.

La Jolla led 35-23 at halftime behind Charlie Gal’s team-leading 16 points for the Vikings. Gal led La Jolla with 21 points and 16 rebounds.

Farley had a drive to the basket for a score in traffic, drawing a foul with five minutes to go in the game, which gave the Vikes a 55-44 lead.

At the final bell, the Pack (2-4) succumbed 62-50 to the Vikings (6-1).

West Hills: West Hills:  Cameron Barry 19 (3 reb, 1 ast, 1 blk), Marquel Cool 14 (3 reb, 1 ast, 3 stl), Chris Moyer 7 (6 reb, 1 ast, 1 blk), Nathan Ball 4 (1 reb, 3 ast), Matthew MacDonald 4 (2 reb), Adam Dillion 2 (1 ast, 1 stl), Tyler Brower (1 stl), Scott Bettoney (1 reb).
