Boys Basketball: Late Game Push Leads East Brunswick over Union, 50-38


UNION, NJ - A huge offensive fourth quarter enabled the East Brunswick boys basketball team to cruise past the Union Farmers, 50-38.

After a first quarter in which the Bears outscored Union by only 6-3, the Farmers outscored the Bears 18-12 in the second quarter. Union was led by Corey Thelisme and Ryan Dolce. Thelisme scored a team-high 11 points. Dolce scored 10 points including 6 of his points coming from beyond the arc. Entering the second half Union had a 21-18 lead over East Brunswick.

In the third quarter the Bears put up 12 points while the Farmers managed 10 points. The Bears’ scoring was well distributed as the bench scored 18 total points. Also, the Bears got it done from the three point line. Three pointers accounted for 24 of the Bears 50 points. Union only knocked down 3 three pointers throughout the whole game. 


Going into the final quarter the Bears were still trailing by one point, 31-30. The Bears offense came alive and outscored Union 20-7 in the fourth. The Bears were led by senior Ezra Levitt, who accounted for a game-high 14 points. Levitt drained 2 three pointers and totaled 8 points from the free throw line. An offensive explosion late in the game was enough for the Bears to pull out the victory over the Union Farmers.
