One season removed from winning the Sac-Joaquin Section boys basketball D-IV championship, the Colfax Falcons likely will miss the postseason for the first time since the 1990-91 season.
Colfax is 10-16 overall and 1-8 in the Pioneer Valley League heading into Tuesday's regular-season finale at Lincoln. Colfax snapped an 11-game losing streak with a 58-50 win at Bear River on Thursday.
Colfax is at No. 24 in today's D-IV section power ratings. Only the top 16 teams qualify for the postseason.
Colfax's struggles weren't entirely unexpected. Last year's 22-10 Falcons had 11 seniors on the roster. Coach Mike O'Connell's team this year has 13 juniors and two seniors.
