EDISON, NJ–On Thursday night, GMC Hoops wrapped up its big night of summer league coverage by traveling over to The Basketball Shooting Academy to take in the final round of games starting at 8:00 PM. After being at the Middlesex County College Summer League, and then the Bound Brook Summer League, the web site still managed to capture the final 13 minutes or so of the second half between Piscataway and Spotswood. For the second straight night, the web site got a look at Spotswood, and this time it was a bit better one.
On Tuesday night, GMC Hoops saw Spotswood take on J.P. Stevens in the nightcap game, but only for the final three minutes of action. Well anyway, the site arrived with about 13 minutes to go in this one, which was already in hand at that point. With 12:30 remaining, the Piscataway Chiefs were on top by a score of 46-25. About thirty seconds later, P-Way got a layup to increase its lead to 48-25. On its next possession, Spotswood got on the board with a jumper to close the gap to 21 again at 48-27. The Chiefs then quickly answered with a field goal to go up by 23 once more at 50-27 with 11:30 left. Then, P-Way, which continued to pressure Spotswood in its backcourt, got the ball back, and drew another foul that resulted in a one of two showing at the line for a 51-27 lead.
Piscataway then made it a 7-0 run with two more baskets for a 55-27 advantage at the 9:26 mark before Spotswood’s Ross Gerhart netted a three pointer from the left side at the 8:45 mark to make the score, 55-30. The trifecta then sparked a 9-2 run as the Chargers scored 6 of the next 8 points to cut the deficit to 57-36 with four minutes to play. Spotswood then scored 7 of the next 9 points after that including a three pointer from the right wing to pull within 59-41 at the 1:45 mark. Alex Dorwani then closed out the scoring with a layup to close the gap to 16, but unfortunately, time wasn’t on the side of the Chargers as Piscataway came away with the 59-43 win.
GMC Hoops plans to head out to TBSA on either Tuesday or Thursday next week.
