The action on the court does not begin until this weekend but the WOBM Christmas Classic is officially underway as last night at The Villa across from the Office Restaurant and Lounge the coaches seeded the 32 teams participating in this year’s basketball tournament.

On the boys side the teams that met in last year’s championship game are 1-2 with runner-up Toms River North grabbing the top seed and defending champion Manasquan seeded second.

The Mariners return a quartet of senior starters in Mike Nyisztor, Jaden Rhoden, Darrion Carrington and Mike Husni and will begin their quest for the championship on Sunday against #16 Middletown South. Manasquan who will be led by Devin Jensen and Brian Paturzo will face #15 Lacey in their opening round game Sunday night.
