High school basketball is right around the corner (see the countdown timer on the right of this page!) and Central Jersey Sports Radio plans a big season of hoops play-by-play.
The schedule includes 13 regular season games in both the Greater Middlesex and Skyland Conferences. And for the first time, girls’ basketball in both leagues will have a play-by-play home.
Five of the 13 games on the schedule are girls’ matchups, including some of the top teams in the area: St. Thomas Aquinas, Bound Brook, Franklin, Rutgers Prep and Gill St. Bernard’s.
The schedule also includes a pair of marquee affairs in a Saturday boys/girls day-night doubleheader on February 20th: Franklin at Rutgers Prep girls at noon, and The Patrick School at St. Thomas Aquinas at 7 pm.
Top boys’ teams on the schedule include St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Joseph-Metuchen, Bound Brook, and Colonia.
Monroe visits St. Joseph-Metuchen on Tuesday, February 26th at 7 pm (air time at 6:50) in the season opener on the first day of competition for high school basketball according to the NJSIAA’s schedule for winter sports in Season 2.
