Rutgers Prep 64 Gill St. Bernard’s 43 | Boys
Jadin Collins poured in a game-high 22 points to fuel the Argonauts in a revenge win over the Knights. Gill St. Bernard’s (12-4) defeated Rutgers Prep (12-6) back on Jan. 5 thanks to a buzzer-beater three from Nick Losada.

Manchester Township 56 Lacey 40 | Girls
Devyn Quigley continues to pile up amazing numbers in her junior campaign with a 40-point effort to give Manchester its 11th win of the season and a regular season sweep of the Lions. Quigley is a top 60 national recruit in the class of 2024 and showed it with a complete game. Lacey was able to keep things close thanks to a Marisa Flores three-pointer at the buzzer to make it 26-23 at the half and Reece Paget’s lay-in made it a 38-35 Manchester lead in the fourth but Quigley sparked a 10-0 run in the fourth to put the game away. Quigley now has nine games where she has reached the 40-point mark and is currently averaging 36.3 points per game. We’ll profile Devyn this Sunday on Jersey Sports Zone TV (11:30 am on WLNY-TV).
