Manville boys’ headline short list of upsets on Day 2 of NJSIAA state tournament

Day Two of the state tournament – at least in the sections featuring CJSR-area teams – saw very few upsets, but Manville pulled one off.

The 10th-seeded Mustangs – still just 11-12 after the win – picked up a victory at 7th-seed North Hunterdon, 65-49, in Central Jersey Group One first-round action. And while a 10 beating a 7 may not be a huge upset, it was made bigger by the fact that the Mustangs had lost both games to the Eagles this regular season, by five on the road and by 16 at home.

Manville moves on to play second-seed Keyport, which wallped 15-seed Somerset Tech Tuesday night 102-29.

On the girls’ side, just two area teams advanced, including second seed Colonia in Central Jersey Group 3, and second-seed Woodbridge Academy in Central Jersey Group 1. The Patriots rolled past 15th-seed Steinert 60-23 Monday, and advance to play 7th-seed Neptune on Thursday evening. Woodbridge Academy beat 15-seed Roselle Park 28-26, and will host 7-seed Burlington City Thursday. Eight area teams were eliminated.

On the boys’s side, four advanced, four were sent home.
