MILLBURN, NJ — The Millburn Girls Basketball team finds itself in a winning position, after recording its second straight victory. The Millers defeated Montclair 52-33 on Tuesday afternoon.

After the game, Millburn Head Coach Stacy Dinner spoke with TAPinto Millburn. She said that the enthusiasm from the team's victory over Golda Och Academy was a key to the team's great performance.
"We had a huge win on Saturday night," Dinner said. "That was 10 girls [and] three coaches that were all in. That energy just bled into today. So it was once again 10 girls going out on that court and just playing basketball. We truly did it together."
Dinner also spoke to what she saw as one of the major successes for the Millers in the game.
"We really stressed ball movement," Dinner said. "We were moving the ball unbelievably well in the first quarter, and we actually pulled them out of their zone because of our ball movement. So I was very impressed with that."
Millburn returns to the court in a road contest on Jan. 16 against Livingston. Tip off is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
