Group 2 was one of the top sections in New Jersey last season as it housed two of the top five teams in the state. Camden and Manasquan combined to lose two games last season and should be tough to beat again. The group is filled with big-time talent who are ready to make an impact at the next level. Here are the top under the radar duos to watch in Group 2.

Camden- Devin BensonDevinBenson6'0" | SGCamden | 2021StateNJ & Sebastian RobinsonSebastianRobinson6'2" | CGCamden | 2023NJ

The Panthers are loaded with talent in 2023 phenom Dajuan Wagner JrDajuanWagner Jr6'2" | PGCamden | 2023#2NationNJ., Penn State commit Ta’Quan WoodleyTa’QuanWoodley6'6" | PFCamden | 2021State#143NationNJ and wing Jerome BrewerJeromeBrewer6'6" | SFCamden | 2021StateNJ. The guard group is loaded with Cian MedleyCianMedley6'0" | PGCamden | 2023StateNJ returning to run the point along with a strong bench duo in Benson and Robinson. Both players are capable of playing both guards spots with the former having a smooth shooting stroke. Robinson is extremely skilled with the ability to get to his spot on the floor and break his defender down off the bounce. The High should be the team to beat in New Jersey with Benson and Robinson giving the Panthers a big boost off the bench.

Dumont- Dominick BarlowDominickBarlow6'7" | SFDumont | 2021StateNJ & Devin BensonDevinBenson6'0" | SGCamden | 2021StateNJ & Sebastian RobinsonSebastianRobinson6'2" | CGCamden | 2023NJ The Panthers are loaded with talent in 2023 phenom Dajuan Wagner JrDajuanWagner Jr6'2" | PGCamden | 2023#2NationNJ., Penn State commit Ta’Quan WoodleyTa’QuanWoodley6'6" | PFCamden | 2021State#143NationNJ and wing Jerome BrewerJeromeBrewer6'6" | SFCamden | 2021StateNJ.

The High should be the team to beat in New Jersey with Benson and Robinson giving the Panthers a big boost off the bench. Dumont- Dominick BarlowDominickBarlow6'7" | SFDumont | 2021StateNJ & Ousmane ThiamOusmaneThiam6'3" | SGDumont | 2021StateNJ The Huskies quietly won 19 games last season and has one of New Jersey’s best kept secrets. Barlow is a talented wing prospect who attack the basket and finish through contact. He is capable of knocking down three-pointers and can handle the ball on the perimeter. Thiam is a strong defender and has the ability to handle the ball in the half court. Dumont has the ability to make a deep run in the sectional playoffs behind Barlow and Thiam. Pascack Hills- Aidan KehoeAidanKehoe6'10" | PFPascack Hills | 2021StateNJ & Jacob MoralesJacobMorales6'4" | SFPascack Hills | 2021StateNJ The Cowboys made the North 1 Group 2 final and they should make it again in 2020-21. Morales was the team’s leading scorer last season as he has a good mid-range game and can finish around the basket. Kehoe has a nice touch around the basket and is a good free throw shooter for a big man. The 6’10 forward has taken huge strides since the end of last season as he plays with confidence down low and is a good shot-blocker. Pascack Hills has one of the top duos in Group 2 in Kehoe and Morales, who should carry the Cowboys deep into the state tournament. Robbinsville- Ryan SmithRyanSmith6'4" | SFRobbinsville | 2021StateNJ & Brian Herbert The Ravens won 20 games in 2019-20 and they could do it again with Smith and Herbert returning. The former has a nice touch around the basket and knows how to draw contact. Smith has a nice release on his jumper and can handle the ball on the perimeter. Herbert is a knockdown shooter from behind the arc and knows how to move off the ball. Robbinsville have a strong duo in Smith and Herbert who should lead the team to a strong 2020-21 season. Manchester Township- Savon MyersSavonMyers6'4" | SFManchester Township | 2022StateNJ & Wyatt HasselbauerWyattHasselbauer6'7" | PFManchester Township | 2022StateNJ The Hawks lost in the South Jersey Group 2 quarterfinals, but they have the potential to go further in 2020-21. Myers is the team’s top returning scorer as he attacks the basket with a purpose and can finish through contact. He can handle the ball on the perimeter and is an underrated passer. Hasselbauer is a rugged post player who plays hard on both ends and is one of the top rebounders in the 2022 class. The return of point guard D’Maari BrownD’MaariBrown5'9" | PGManchester Township | 2022StateNJ makes Manchester Township a team to watch in the Shore Conference this season. Other Players to Watch: Rumson Fair-Haven- Geoff SchroederGeoffSchroeder6'0" | CGRumson Fair-Haven | 2022StateNJ & Jackson PattonJacksonPatton5'11" | PGRumson Fair-Haven | 2021StateNJ Lower Cape May- Jacob BeyJacobBey6'5" | PFLower Cape May | 2023NJ & Archie LawlerArchieLawler6'2" | SGLower Cape May | 2023NJ Newark Central- Tasheem AndersonTasheemAnderson6'2" | CGNewark Central | 2021StateNJ & Zahree Brown Manasquan- Jack CollinsJackCollins6'5" | SGManasquan | 2021StateNJ & Connor WalshConnorWalsh6'5" | SFManasquan | 2021StateNJ
