MONTVALE – The championship game of the BCCA Freshman Boys Basketball Tournament is pure high school basketball, especially when it is two public school teams playing for the title. It is as even a playing field as there is left. A group of kids from the same two towns or sending district who are all within a couple of months of each other in age getting after it. The tournament itself is a slow build over a month’s worth of weekends that ends on a raucous stage, this time in front of a packed house at St. Joseph Regional High School in Montvale on Saturday night. Ridgewood was certainly not awed by the surroundings as made just about every shot it threw at the basket on the way to a 19-point first quarter and 35-point first half. Hackensack certainly was not deflated by the deficit, which was 12 points at the end of the first quarter, 13 points a couple of times in the second quarter and 10 points at the half. With both teams playing up the circumstances, the second half was classic championship basketball. Hackensack did not take it first second half lead until there was 1:34 left in the third quarter and it did not take its last until there was less than 50 seconds to play in the game. MORE...
