Peak to Peak was 20th in the 4A boys basketball CHSAA Selection & Seeding Index before the start of action Tuesday night.

Wheat Ridge (4-14, 2-5 in 4A Jeffco League) was looking to get a nice non-league victory before heading into its final stretch of conference play. The Farmers played a solid three quarters to take a 50-45 lead, but Wheat Ridge ran out of gas in the final quarter.

Junior Da’mon Bobbs led the way for the Farmers with 16 points. Wheat Ridge’s lone senior this season — Nick Dalton — had a strong game with 10 points while battling with the 6-foot-7 Eschmeyer for the majority of the game. Juniors David Salcedo and Isaac McCune combined for 20 points in the fourth straight loss for Wheat Ridge.

The Farmers have a quick turnaround with heading back into league play tomorrow (Wednesday, Jan. 31) at home against Evergreen. Peak to Peak returns home to face The Academy on Thursday night.
