Montgomery has never made a Somerset County Tournament final.

And while that would be a huge achievement for the Cougars under their excellent head coach Kris Grundy, if it happens this year, it would actually only be the second biggest in the program’s history.

That’s because to get there, fourth-seeded Montgomery (13-10) would have to knock off top-seed Gill St. Bernard’s (16-6), only the No. 4 team in the entire state of New Jersey.

Central Jersey Sports Radio will have live play-by-play of tonight’s game, which is scheduled for 7 pm, immediately following the Gill girls’ semifinal game against Hillsborough, set for 5 pm.

Montgomery may look like it has had an up-and-down season at 13-10, but they have won 12 of their last 9 games, and their last two may be the most impressive.

Head coach Kris Grundy believes his team found its way in a 54-39 win over Moorestown on February 17th, and it set the Cougars up perfectly for an SCT quarterfinal win over Bound Brook two nights ago.

The Crusaders went undefeated last year (14-0) and had a long winning streak to start this season. They can get up and down the floor, and can shoot it from downtown, just like Gill St. Bernard’s can.
