Borgia outscored Pacific 7-5 in overtime to beat the Indians 60-58 in front of raucous crowd at Pacific High School. Pacific's Jeff Hinkle hit a shot to tie the game at 53 at the end of regulation but Adam Meyer drained the game winner with 12 seconds left in the extra session to send Borgia into the win column. The final shot from Cullen VanLeer bounced off the front of the rim as time expired. Borgia was led by Zach Schweissguth with 17 points as the Knights improved to 10-3. Cullen VanLeer drained 26 points and pulled down 16 rebounds for the Indians, now 9-4. They could meet again next week in the Union Tournament.

Early Thursday morning, I received news that vandals had broken in to St. Francis Borgia Grade School in Washington, causing extensive damage to several classrooms and offices. School was closed for the day as the Washington Police Department went about their business of securing what had changed from a school community to a crime scene overnight.
