It’s Conference Tournament season in New Jersey and JSZ has action from around the state. We’ve got a sole remaining regular season matchup between two Bergen County foes, plus Scottie Lewis and Bryan Antoine get their McDonald’s All-American jerseys at Ranney.

BC was paced by Matt Zona (17 points) and a pair of 13-point games from Zach Freemantle and Doug Edert. Don Bosco’s Victor Konopka led his team with 17 on the night.
