Multiple Teams · 8th Grade Boys Basketball comes down to the wire and South edges Willetts 42-39

What a way to start the season! In the first regular season game for both squads, South edged Willetts in an instant classic. South quickly got out to a double digit lead, but Willetts came roaring back and made it a game.

This entertaining contest also contained two buzzer beaters, one at the half and also one at the end of the third.

South had a chance to win the game at the end, however, the shot was blocked by a host of Willetts players.

The game was forced into overtime, where the game again came down to the wire, in the end, Brunswick South forced a turnover with time expiring and held on for a 42-39 victory.

It was also a wonderful debut for Willetts coach Anthony Ocacio, who joined the Brunswick coaching staff this year. Anthony, a graduate of Brunswick, was a very successful point guard for High School Coach Joe Mackey.
