High Point's charity game a success

WANTAGE _ The altruism associated with the Pretty in Pink Classic appeals to senior Brianne Woop and her High Point basketball teammates. It's easy to understand why Woop and the Wildcats are so fond of the event, which was held Saturday, Jan. 7 when High Point played host to Kittatinny.

Tabakman career points total at 1,511

PEQUANNOCK _ Falling short to Chatham by two points, 49-47, on Tuesday, Jan. 3, was a disappointment, no doubt, for Pequannock. Despite the setback in the NJAC-Independence Division game, there was still reason to celebrate as senior center Sam Tabakman became the Golden Panthers' all-time leading scorer, male or female, with a 30-point performance.

Reese's 26 points steer Mtn. Lakes

MORRISTOWN _ Two minutes into Tuesday night's game against Mountain Lakes, Morristown-Beard's 6-foot-2 center, Tatiana Johnson, found herself on the bench. Johnson, whistled for two fouls, remained there for a substantial portion of the first half - close to nine minutes. Mountain Lakes was in a similar predicament, with senior forward Ingrid Hermanson in foul trouble and sitting.

Torchia ignites Pequannock

KINNELON _ Pequannock has a reputation. It's a positive one, though, bringing the Golden Panthers much success over the last four years. The Golden Panthers have been known for getting the ball in to Sam Tabakman, their 6-foot-2 senior center.

Chatham has new mentality

CHATHAM _ They perform on the court, not on the world-renowned stages of The Great White Way, but the idea is the same. When Chatham coach Joe Gaba asked his players what they expect when they attend a Broadway play, they responded exactly how he thought they would.

Crimson fall in tournament final

SPRINGFIELD _ Kennedi Monteith's third-quarter play was a showstopper, one that should have provided additional fuel for Morristown-Beard's comeback. The Crimson rallied after halftime, recovering from a 10-point deficit. With 2:15 left in the third period, Monteith dove and skidded over the endline, preventing a loose ball from going out of bounds.

Picture this: Montville takes Marauder championship

MOUNT OLIVE _ The Montville players were beaming as they assembled near halfcourt after defeating Mount Olive 41-35 in the final of the Marauder Tournament on Thursday afternoon. The taking of a team photo after claiming a title isn't a commonplace occurrence for the Mustangs so this was extra special.

Udell, Malman power Mendham

BASKING RIDGE _ Mendham sophomore guard Aubree Udell made a quick jersey switch at the start of the fourth quarter, swapping her No. 5 for Erin Morris' No. 14. The change was necessitated by a scratch Udell sustained on her wrist during a game against Union. Blood got on her jersey so she was forced to borrow from Morris, sidelined with an injury.

BASKING RIDGE _ After three quarters, West Morris' lead in its game against Linden had swelled to a robust 16 points. The Wolfpack had been in control for awhile, building a sizeable advantage with a 20-9 showing in the third quarter.
