Shore Conference Tournament Girls Semifinals: Highlights and the Turning Point Players of the Game
Throughout the high school basketball season Turning Point breakfast, brunch & lunch will partner with the Shore Sports Network on “The Turning Point Player of the Game.” One player from our Game of the Week broadcast will be selected and the player involved will receive a gift card from the Turning Point which has 12 restaurant locations in New Jersey including 6 in Monmouth & Ocean County.
This week’s “Turning Point Players of the Game”:
Four teams entered RWJBarnabas Health Arena on Tuesday with a chance to reach the Shore Conference Tournament Finals, but only two punched their ticket to Monmouth University. In the first half of the double-header, St. John Vianney and St. Rose put on quite a show, but it was the Lancers who managed to come away with a 70-63 victory over the Purple Roses. Madison St. Rose led St. John Vianney, the top seed on the girls side, with 36 points and was named our Turning Point Player of the Game for her efforts. Check out highlights from the game as well as an interview with Madison below. To read Gregg Lerner's game story, click here.
Manchester and Red Bank Catholic formed the back-end of the semifinals, with both teams surviving close match-ups in the quarterfinals over the weekend. After a slow start for both teams in the first quarter, the Hawks were able to establish a rhythm on offense en route to a 64-43 win over the Caseys. Destiny Adams led second-seeded Manchester with an impressive double-double, compiling 22 points and 19 rebounds in the contest. You can watch highlights from the game as well as an interview with Destiny below. To read Matt Manley's game story, click here.
For their efforts out on the court, St. Rose and Adams both received a gift card from Turning Point breakfast, brunch, and lunch.
