They are fun to watch and they have been incredibly effective through their first seven games. Five different Pascack Valley players scored during a 26-4 second quarter run that turned a tie game against Northern Highlands into a master class on ball movement and fluid offense as the Indians rolled to a 62-36 win in The Joe Poli Tournament final. “This is a really fun team. They play very unselfishly, so yes, they are going to make a lot of passes and along the way they are going to make a handful of mistakes. But they are always willing to make the extra pass, to make the right pass to give the kid with a better shot the chance to shoot it,” said Pascack Valley head coach Jeff Jasper, who is closing in on 970 career victories MORE...
