MILLBURN, NJ - Millburn High School played host to its second ever Millburn Madness event on Friday afternoon. Both students, faculty, as well as Millburn Police, laced up on the hardwood in the Battle of the Badges and the Books. 
Residents and students packed the courtside seats with proceeds raised through ticket and snacks sales going directly to the Millburn PBA Scholarship Foundation. Each year, the Foundation awards a scholarship to one Millburn student for books and other college expenses. To win the scholarship, students submit an original essay on a topic chosen by the head of the Scholarship Committee. The Committee as a group then selects the best applicant based on his or her writing. 
“It means a lot for the Millburn PBA to give back to the public, give back to the township,” said Lt. Mark Azzopardi.

Tensions quickly developed on the court though. The faculty caught the students by surprise in their last meeting, so the students brought reinforcements with them this time around. The students added Miller basketball players Sam Bernard, Will Rosenberg, and Rachel Hubertus. However, these ringers were unable to overcome the faculty’s pro-level passing and oppressive defense. 
After the student versus faculty game, the PBA took the floor for two fifteen minute halves. One-half the PBA squared off against the students the other against the faculty.
