Ramon Jimenez had a double-double to lead the Chicopee Pacers Varsity Boys Basketball team to a 45-37 victory over Commerce this evening.
Jimenez led all scorers with 11 points and added 10 boards in what was an offensive struggle for both teams. The Pacers used a strong game on the defensive boards, pulling down 23 rebounds to prevent the Red Raiders from getting second-chance opportunities.
Despite an off shooting night, Kobe Parker was effective as a ball handler recording three assists while providing the strong defense of the Red Raiders primary ball handler. Parker had two steals while Jimenez and Isaiah Haines had four each.
The Pacers will be in action again on Monday when they will host Sci-Tech. The JV game will begin at 5:30 pm and the varsity game will follow at around 7 pm.
