Central Jersey Sports Radio’s coverage of local high school basketball begins tonight, when #10 Dunellen entertains Dunellen at the Faber School.
Air-time is 5:50 pm for the game, with Mike Pavlichko and Dom Savino calling all the action.
The broadcast is sponsored by Rising Stars Studio of Dance, Roscoe’s Eatery, Dunellen Bagel, and the Dunellen Hotel.
The Destroyers have moved up from the Greater Middlesex Conference Gold Division to the Blue following a 25-5 season, their best in almost 30 years, which included their first trip to the GMC Tournament quarterfinals since 1993, and a tough loss to University in the North 2-Group 1 finals. They’re led by senior guard Drew Johnson – who’ll be headed to Penn State-Brandywine after graduation – and his 1,288 career points.
Edison also had a terrific 2019-20, winning the GMC White Division, the school’s first-ever division title in the league. Nico Barnes leads the offense, coming off a season where he scored 8.5 points per game and grabbed 4.3 rebounds per contest. The Eagles also added 6-foot-6 transfer Joseph Greer, a junior who played last year at West Windsor-Plainsboro North.
