The 2021 season was a success as many teams were able to more than 10 games during the pandemic times. The one drawback was the lack of a true postseason tournament with the NJSIAA not having the state playoffs. No postseason play meant missed opportunities on potential battles for championships, especially individual battles within the 2022 class. Here are the top postseason match-up we could have seen, but missed out on because of no state tournament.

Will Richardson Will Richardson 6'2" | PG Bergen Catholic | 2022 State #59 Nation NJ & Julian Brown Julian Brown 6'1" | PG Bergen Catholic | 2022 State NJ vs. Mark Armstrong Mark Armstrong 6'2" | PG St. Peter's Prep | 2022 State #119 Nation NJ

Elijah Flournoy Elijah Flournoy 6'3" | SG Bergen Catholic | 2022 State NJ ’s toughness and defensive versatility gives Bergen Catholic a strong 2022 trio, but it’s the dynamic duo who run the show. Richardson was a Third Team All-State selection last season as he can get to the basket with ease, knock down jumpers from distance and run the offense smoothly. Brown is a big-time scorer with the ability to get from distance in a hurry. Armstrong is a big-time scorer for the Marauders as he can score at all three levels and has the ability to score 20 points on any given night.
