The Pacers and the Thunder will meet for a basketball championship. No, not for the title in the NBA, where both the Pacers and Thunder are among the favorites to win the league championship this June, but here in Scotch Plains.
The Scotch Plains Recreation Basketball League championship game for the 7th/8th Grade Boys' Division is scheduled to be played tonight with tip-off slated for 8 p.m. at Park Middle School's new gym.
The Pacers are coached by Sal Perillo, while the Thunder are led by Coach Anthony Cuccurullo.
Both teams played out their chalk seeds in the 10-team playoffs. The Thunder enters the final as the top seed while the Pacers come in with the No. 2 seed.
