Conference Preview

Posted On: 01/29/21 9:26 AM

The opening week of high school basketball is almost over with the weekend right around the corner. Games have been cancelled and rescheduled for numerous schools, but there are still plenty of thrilling match-ups to look forward to this weekend. Here are the top must watch match-ups in the opening weekend of New Jersey basketball.

Robbinsville vs. Trenton: Brian Herbert and Ryan Smith Ryan Smith 6'5" | SF Robbinsville | 2021 State NJ vs. Antwann Bridgett, Davontay Hudson and Chris Wilson

This CVC match-up carries a lot of weight with the winner getting a nice early leg up on the competition. Robbinsville knocked off Nottingham to open the season with Herbert pouring in a career-high 25 points and five blocks. His ability to be a big-time scorer takes the pressure off of Smith, who proved capable of carrying the scoring load last season. The Tornadoes’ sophomore trio had a breakout performance against Steinert and they are here to prove that it wasn’t a fluke. If Bridgett, Hudson and Wilson can duplicate their performances from opening night, Robbinsville and Trenton will be a must watch game.

Eastern vs. Overbrook: Tazir Cantey Tazir Cantey 6'0" | PG Eastern | 2021 State NJ vs. Damian Rawls Damian Rawls 6'1" | CG Overbrook | 2021 State NJ
