Men's High School hoops
R-S Central has now moved to 12-4, 2-0 and continue to show senior leadership, poise and depth in what is a very tough league in hoops play. Elijah Carson was a big factor this past week off the bench and Zyrion Wilkins continues to lead the Hilltoppers. They continue to play a little better defensively every game too. Central has a big game against East Gaston at home, Friday, the 19th.
East Rutherford (11-6, 1-2) has struggled in conference play, but have lost both league games by less than 10 points. Josh Searcy and Quay Logan have been doing their part.
