New Brunswick boys basketball records dramatic win

The frenetic final seconds of the New Brunswick High School boys basketball team’s 58-57 victory over Piscataway served as a microcosm of the wild days that preceded the dramatic season-opening win.

Due to coronavirus-related restrictions within the school district, New Brunswick commenced practice outdoors while the vast majority of Greater Middlesex Conference programs were drilling inside the confines of warm gymnasiums.

Players dressed appropriately for tryouts at Archibald Park, located in the city’s fourth ward, and adhered to all NJSIAA-mandated safety protocols shortly after undergoing rapid COVID-19 tests, for which every member of the program was negative.

New Brunswick is making the jump this year to the Red Division and the timing could not be worse, as graduation decimated the program.

Among the conference’s most consistent teams over the past two years with a 37-16 record during that stretch, New Brunswick graduated six players who combined to average 72 points per game.
