For a second straight game, the Rutgers Prep girls’ basketball team didn’t get off to the start it wanted.

But there’s no comment section the 2023 Somerset County Tournament Trophy, so the Lady Argonauts will just put it in their trophy case, along with the seven others they own.

The top-seeded lady Argonauts (20-4) won their third straight SCT title, with a 64-39 victory over second-seeded Gill St. Bernard’s (17-7) Saturday afternoon at Montgomery High School, as heard on Central Jersey Sports Radio.

Top scoring honors in the game went to Prep junior swing Zahra Alexander, who had 21 points, including a pair of threes, to not only set a new career high, but also lead the Argos in scoring for the first time in her career.

The win gives Rutgers Prep and head coach Mary Klinger their eighth Somerset County Tournament title all-time.
