Rutgers commit Derek Simpson had eight points and nine assists for the Indians (3-0). Jake Green drained five 3-pointers for a team-high 15 points for the Cougars (3-1) in the loss.

Rumson-Fair Haven 73 Red Bank Regional 68 | Boys
Scott Gyimesi had 14 points and 13 rebounds, one of five Bulldogs in double figures, as RFH used a 14-0 run to start the fourth quarter to avoid an upset against their Ridge Road rivals. Tied 34-34 at the half, RBR used hot shooting from Brian Tobin (18 points on six 3-pointers) and Colin Teter (12 points) to take a 56-48 lead after three. But Rumson took over in the fourth with Gyimesi cleaning up on the glass on both ends of the floor. Owen Sullivan had 15 to lead RFH while Nick Valentino paced the Bucs with 19. JSZ’s Rich Chrampanis has highlights from a great Shore Conference rivalry game:
