NJSIAA North 1, Group 3 final
BOYS BASKETBALL:Teaneck runs away from River Dell

ORADELL – Teaneck jumped out to a 13-1 lead in the first two minutes of the game and coasted to an 81-48 victory over River Dell to win its second consecutive state sectional title on Monday night in Oradell. Last season the Highwaymen went on to win the Group 3 state title. “We wanted to come out and jump on them to take the crowd out of the game,” said Teaneck coach Jerome Smart. “We’ve been in these situations before, like the other day (Saturday) in Old Tappan with a hostile crowd. We knew what we had to do to take the crowd out. Once we took them out of the game it was just playing basketball.” “It was really important [to take the crowd out],” added junior Ja’Quaye James. “Sometimes the refs can be influenced by the crowd. When you are playing on the road, especially in state games, it’s better to keep a 15- to 20-point lead in case two or three calls go in their favor we’re still good. I’d rather play up than close.” Junior Cory Gordan got the scoring going with a jumper to give Teaneck a 2-0 lead.
