Eastside to Open Boys Hoop Season at JFK Friday


PATERSON, NJ - Size and recent history will be on the side of the Eastside varsity boys basketball team when the Ghosts open their 2013-2014 season Friday night in the gym of city rival John F. Kennedy High school.

Last season, the Ghosts put together a 25-3 record and reached the NJSIAA Section 1, Group 4 semifinals before being upset by Bloomfield. Along the way, Eastside scored a pair of victories over JFK by scores of 69-61 and 65-41.

Eastside has three starters--6-7 junior Shakur Juiston, 6-6 junior Marquel Sheffield and 6-5 senior Quincy Jones--that are all taller than JFK's biggest frontcourt player.
