Orthopaedic Institute All-Tournament Boys Basketball Player of the Week

Jay Silva, Southern

Southern is off to a 5-2 start to the season and while the Rams have relied on contributions from a lot of sources, Silva has been their most consistent producer, as well as their key big man.

The 6-foot-6 junior averaged 15.3 points in three games at the Score at the Shore Tournament, in which Southern finished second following a loss to Lenape - the Rams' first defeat of the season. Silva opened up the tournament by scoring nearly half his teams points, posting 21 in a 43-28 win over Colts Neck.

Silva edged another Ocean County front court standout for the Player of the Week award, topping Pinelands senior forward Ryan Skeie - the MVP of the Warrior Classic at New Egypt. Silva will receive a $25 gift card to Surf Taco for winning the first Player of the Week poll of 2020.
