This week’s “Turning Point Players of the Game”:
The highly anticipated Shore Conference Tournament finals at Monmouth University provided no shortage of entertainment for the fans in attendance and those watching at home. The girls took the court first and played a competitive game, but it was St. John Vianney who won their 14th Shore Conference title 57-50 over Manchester, the defending champions of the tournament. For the second time in five days, super sophomore Madison St. Rose was named our Turning Point Player of the Game along with being named MVP, posting 23 points, 7 rebounds, and 5 steals. Check out highlights from the game as well as an interview with Madison below. To read Gregg Lerner's game story, click here.
In what broadcaster Kevin Williams termed a "business date," Manasquan dominated the boys finals against Toms River North. The Warriors took a 24-7 lead into the second quarter and almost set a new record for the largest margin of victory set in a Shore Conference Tournament final, eventually downing the Mariners 75-49 and winning their first Shore Conference championship since 1957. Ben Roy was named the MVP and earned Turning Point Player of the Game honors; the sophomore contributed 31 points in the victory. You can watch highlights from the game as well as an interview with Ben below. To read Matt Manley's game story, click here.
For their efforts out on the court, St. Rose and Roy both received a gift card from Turning Point breakfast, brunch, and lunch.
