EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - It is hoops heaven for the East Brunswick High School boys and girls program, as both schools have been rewarded for their excellent seasons to date with high seeds for both the Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament, as well as the New Jersey State Tournament.
The boys team, currently 13-6, earned a six seed in the GMC tournament, where they will start play against the winner of the JFK vs eleventh seeded Old Bridge matchup. The game will be played at New Brunswick High School on Sunday February 22. A victory in that game will advance the Bears to a likely semifinal matchup against third seeded and once beaten Cardinal McCarrick. The Falcons of St. Josephs of Metuchen are the top seed, and are gunning for their sixth consecutive GMC title.
Bears coach Mark Motuesky's boys, led by star Matt Ross, will start play in the Central Jersey Group IV Section of the State Tournament on March 2 as the 5 seed, where they will play host to number 12 seed Howell at 7PM.
The East Brunswick Lady Bears, who currently are sporting a solid record of 16-4, enter play tonight, February 18 in the GMC tournament as the Red Division champs, and have earned the three seed. The Lady Bears will play host to fourteen seeded Cardinal McCarrick at 7PM in the East Brunswick gym.
The ladies will also play Howell in the Central Jersey Group IV tournament, although the girls earned a four seed, while Howell is a thirteen seed. Their game will also be played on March 2, starting at 5:30 PM at East Brunswick High School.
