The second day of the Shore Classic Showcase was just as good as the first one. Some of the top teams in the state squared off against each other. The event also featured some of the top players in the state, who did not disappoint on the big stage. Here are the five things we learned from the second day of the Shore Classic Showcase.

1. Irvington's balanced scoring is good enough for a deep run in states

The Blue Knights had their ups and downs on the offensive end, but they did just enough to squeak out a 70-66 victory over Wall. Senior Moses Pierre struggled with foul trouble throughout the game, yet still finished with a game-high 22 points. Karriem Thomas was Irvington's only dangerous option from behind the arc as the senior guard buried two three-pointers in the second half.

Nazamier Brooks was a pest on the defensive side of the ball and finished the game with 17 points. Wall held Irvington to four points in the second quarter, but could not get star guard Quinn Calabrese going. Irvington's senior trio combined to score 56 points, a number good enough to carry the Blue Knights' offense deep into states.
