"Rutgers Prep Highschool Held The 2023 NJBCA North/South All-Star Classic Girls Basketball"
The NJBCA North/South All Star Classic is where they recognize the top girls highschool players from their respective teams for a fantastic senior season and getting ready for next journey in college. Rutgers Prep Highschool had the opportunity to host this amazing game and it was a great turnout. The matchup for girls started at 12:00 as they announced both rosters. North and South had a lot of awesome talent on the floor and balled out.
North's roster was full of guards, one forward as South's roster had a mixture of guards and forwards. Derek Lynn from (Montville) a long with assistant coaches Sandy Gordon (Ramapo) and Mike Sturgeon (Morristown Beard) coached the North. South was coached by Anthony Corrado (Rancocas Valley), Will Wishart (Shore Regional) and Brett Jenkins (Cinnaminson). It was back and fourth scoring through out the game without playing defense. All the girls knew what they were doing, having fun on the court without drawing any plays from each coach.
Congrats to all the players from both North and South for making the 2023 NJBCA All Star Classic. They competed all season, worked hard on their game and stayed focused.
