JSZ has a pair of boys hoops games for you tonight, as the action continues to heat up on the hardwood!

Trenton Catholic Academy 55 Roselle Catholic 50 | Boys

In possibly the upset of the season so far, Trenton Catholic (2-0) defeated reigning Non-Public B North sectional champion Roselle Catholic (7-1) 55-50. The Lions went up as many as nine on TCA in the third quarter before the Iron Mikes fought back to take the lead midway through the fourth. Trenton Catholic, ahead by three with less than 10 seconds to go, would get help from junior Braxton Jones who delivered two clutch free throws to put the game out of reach. Jones ended the evening with 19 points.
