Piscataway 88 Trenton 84
Trenton coming off two tough losses to undefeated Nottingham and 6-2 Trenton Catholic looked to snap their losing streak at the New Brunswick High School Martin Luther King Jr. Basketball Classic. Unfortunately the Tornadoes ran into yet another skilled opponent in Mattias Arrindell and 9-1 Piscataway. The Chiefs held the lead for most of this one until a fourth quarter rally from Trenton tied the game to send it to OT. In the end Piscataway would hold off the Tornadoes to improve to 10-1 on the year. Watch the highlights now:
