We close out the month with some tremendous action from all over the state!

Trenton 62 Ewing 54 | Boys

No. 17 Trenton (19-1) defeated rival No. 19 Ewing (17-2) in Mercer County’s most anticipated Boys Basketball match up of the season. Trenton led 11-2 early in the first before a surge from Ewing’s Kenny Rankin tied the game at 16-16 to end the first quarter. Trenton would jump back ahead entering halftime and pushed the lead to as many 13 in the fourth quarter as both Davontay Hutson and Antwan Bridgett finished with 14 points to hand the Blue Devils just their second loss.

Ocean Township 54 Shore Regional 28 | Girls

Eli Clark had 14 points and older sister Kayden added a dozen to avenge the Spartans’ lone loss of the season and clinch the Shore’s “C” Division South title for the first time since 1997.  The Clark sisters closed out the first half with back-to-back three-pointers to give the Spartans a 26-16 halftime lead and Ocean put the game away with a dominating second half.   Ocean is now 18-1 on the season.  Shore was led by a 12-point effort from Rylee Drahos and falls to 16-3.
