Shore Conference- The 2015-16 girls basketball season is just upon us and there are a number of teams this year that have goals of raising some championship hardware by seasons end.

Last season the Shore Conference and NJSIAA were treated to an All-Shore Conference Tournament of Champions final that saw Manasquan win a thriller over St. Rose 59-55.  Both Manasquan and St. Rose lost key players to graduation but will once again be top teams at the Shore Conference and States.

St. John Vianney, Rumson Fair Haven, RBC, Neptune and Middletown South will also look to take steps forward this season after very successful 2014-15 campaigns.  While underdog teams such as Southern, Donovan Catholic, Freehold Township and Marlboro will be tough competition to face.

With the season opener set to tip-off this Friday, Shore Sports Network will once again be providing valuable coverage for the girls basketball here at the Shore Conference.  Listed below is our Pre-Season Top 10.  Manasquan and Rumson Fair Haven will meet on opening night at Rumson to set and early tone for the season.
