Bianca Nicolini of Southern Regional wins a Monmouth Building Center Game Ball


MANAHAWKIN – Bianca Nicolini won our second girls Game Ball of the season after winning a close vote from Shore Conference fans.  The Southern Regional guard had 6,536 votes in just over 48 hours to edge Long Branch’s Che’Kasha Andrews.  Nicolini scored 25 points in a win against Toms River East to earn the Game Ball honors.  Nicolini was presented the Game Ball during a pre-game ceremony prior to the Lady Rams 45-38 win against Toms River South.  You can watch those highlights below:



A special thanks to Monmouth Building Center in Shrewsbury for supporting high school athletes in Monmouth and Ocean County.  It started with football honors and now we have basketballs and game pucks in the winter.  On Wednesday, we presented Red Bank Regional’s Anthony Mitchell with the boys Game Ball.   This Monday, we’ll visit the Southern Regional hockey team for their home game against Toms River East and present our first Game Puck to Ryan Rowland.

A reminder that we post top performers from the week every Sunday on SSZ and polls stay open until Tuesday at 4:00 pm.
