Bergen County Jamboree
BOYS BASKETBALL:Dwight-Englewood turns it around in a hurry against Ridgewood
|Ridgewood's Michael Schretter.
ALLENDALE – Dwight-Englewood had to be cautious. Not a particularly deep team and beset by early foul trouble, the Bulldogs just could not afford to extend it defense and fully exploit the quickness advantage that it should have had against Ridgewood in the Round of 16 in the Bergen County Jamboree. As a result, Dwight-Englewood slumped into the locker room having scored just 19 first half points and then were on the verge of being run out of the gym at Northern Highlands High School when they returned for the third quarter. Ridgewood had no such issues as it was shuttling players in and out and taking advantage of its superior size to pound the ball inside. Junior Mike Schretter, the Maroons’ 6-foot-7 center, scored seven straight points in the span of 58 second and point guard Tommy Carver added a floater to make it a 9-0 run and a 17-point Ridgewood lead with 4:06 left in the third quarter. Dwight-Englewood could no longer worry about saving its legs or its fouls. It had to turn up the pressure, harass every ballhandler it could find and create enough extra possessions to make a comeback even possible if not probable. MORE...
