Group 1 was one of the more underrated sections in New Jersey with numerous teams who won over 20 games. Burlington City and Paterson Charter both won 27 games, while Bound Brook and Penns Grove both won 25. Group 1 is filled with talented players who are capable of making big plays against the Garden State’s top competition. Here are the top duo to watch in Group 1.

Burlington City: Jamaal MorrisJamaalMorris5'10" | PGBurlington City | 2022StateNJ & Jameel MorrisJameelMorris5'10" | PGTrenton Catholic | 2022StateNJ

The Blue Devils are the two-time defending Central Jersey Group 1 champions, but they will have to replace the school’s all-time leading scorer in Temple football commit DJ WoodburyDJWoodbury6'2" | CGBurlington City | 2020StateNJ. Jamaal MorrisJamaalMorris5'10" | PGBurlington City | 2022StateNJ was named to Second Team All-Group 1 after being the team’s second leading scorer. The 5’10 guard is a good three-point shooter who only needs a few inches of space to get his shot up. Jameel MorrisJameelMorris5'10" | PGTrenton Catholic | 2022StateNJ is more of a slasher who knows how to finish around the basket. Burlington City will need both of them to up their scoring for the Blue Devils to win their third straight Central Jersey Group 1 title.

Bound Brook: Quadir HarrellQuadirHarrellPGBound Brook | 2022StateNJ & Jamaal MorrisJamaalMorris5'10" | PGBurlington City | 2022StateNJ & Jameel MorrisJameelMorris5'10" | PGTrenton Catholic | 2022StateNJ The Blue Devils are the two-time defending Central Jersey Group 1 champions, but they will have to replace the school’s all-time leading scorer in Temple football commit DJ WoodburyDJWoodbury6'2" | CGBurlington City | 2020StateNJ.

Bound Brook: Quadir HarrellQuadirHarrellPGBound Brook | 2022StateNJ & Cam’Ron SummersCam’RonSummersSGBound Brook | 2021StateNJ The Crusaders fell to Burlington City in the Central Jersey Group 1 final and they should be contenders to win it in 2020-21. Harrell is a dynamic point guard who can get hot from behind the arc but also blow by his defender in the half court. Summers is a rugged forward prospect who has a nice touch around the basket and has a solid mid-range game. They play well off each other and have a good chemistry with Davie McLartyDavieMcLartySGBound Brook | 2021StateNJ. Bound Brook is looking to take home the Central Jersey Group 1 title behind Harrell, Summers and McLarty. University: Bakir ClevelandBakirCleveland6'4" | SGUniversity | 2021StateNJ & Spencer JoynerSpencerJoyner6'4" | PGArts | 2023State#65NationNJ The Phoenix are loaded with returning talent as Janaie CoatesJanaieCoates6'8" | PFUniversity | 2021StateNJJustin HarcourtJustinHarcourt6'5" | SFUniversity | 2021StateNJElijon NixElijonNix6'0" | PGArts | 2023StateNJ and Tye ArtisTyeArtis5'9" | PGUniversity | 2021StateNJ coming back. Cleveland is the team’s top returning scorer and is primed for a big senior season after being named to First Team All-Group 1. The 6’4 guard is a good finisher around the basket and knows how to make shots through contact. Joyner is a talented point guard who can rebound the ball, beat his man off the dribble and defend the ball. University should be one of the teams to beat in Group 1 with Cleveland and Joyner coming back. Lindenwold: Tazir CanteyTazirCantey6'0" | PGEastern | 2021StateNJ & Eriq Campbell The Lions made a run to the South Jersey Group 1 title game with Cantey missing the majority of the playoffs due to injury. The electric guard is a big-time scorer who can blow by his defender, finish around the basket and knock down shots from distance. Campbell picked up the scoring slack as he poured in 80 points in the first three games of the state playoffs. He is a good passer, plays with composure on the ball and can finish through traffic. Cantey and Campbell have the talent to take Lindenwold back to the South Jersey Group 1 final and hopefully they take home the title in 2020-21. Hasbrouck Heights: Kunga TseringKungaTsering6'6" | SFRoselle Catholic | 2021StateNJ & Steven Faussette The Aviators were quietly one of the better teams in Group 1 after going 20-8 and appearing in the North Jersey 1 Group 1 semifinals. Tsering was a force all season for Hasbrouck Heights as he had 22 double-doubles. The 6’7 forward has a good feel for the game as he can bring the ball up, finish above the rim and score around the basket. Faussette plays with composure on the ball and is a good on-ball defender. Hasbrouck Heights has high expectations in 2020-21 with the return of Tsering and Faussette.
