Boys Basketball – Week 2 Player of the Week Winner: Gavin Migliori, TR South
Seaview Orthopaedic Week 2 Player of the Week
Gavin Migliori, Toms River South
Migliori opened the week by scoring 20 of his team’s 40 points in a loss to Toms River North and two nights later, he made sure his efforts netted Toms River South a win.
In a wild overtime win over Brick, Migliori scored 27 points and came up with clutch basket after clutch basket down the stretch of the fourth quarter and overtime to help the Indians fend off a furious comeback effort from the Green Dragons in Brick. Migliori hit a clutch three to stall a Brick run late in the fourth, hit two game-tying free throws with four seconds left, then scored five points in overtime to help close it out.
Toms River South is off to a 3-3 start to the 2021 season under first-year coach Vinnie Arminio after finishing 5-21 a year ago and Migliori has been its breakout scorer. He posted a 20-plus-point game against every team Toms River South has faced this year (Donovan Catholic, Toms River North, Brick and Toms River East) and the Indians are 3-1 in those games.
Migliori collected 34 percent of the vote this week to top runner-up Jake Emery of Howell by 10 percent. All Player of the Week winners receive a gift card to Jersey Mike's and a shirt courtesy of Seaview Orthopaedic.
