First Time GMCT Final Four and Final Will Be Held at MTHS
MONROE TOWNSHIP, NJ—A week from today, the 2022 Greater Middlesex Conference Boys and Girls Basketball Tournaments will get underway with play-in round games at the higher seeded teams. Seeding of the tourneys are scheduled to take place on Friday, February 11th at Spotswood High School. Both boys and girls semifinals and championships will be played at a new location this year, Monroe High School.
Monroe Township High School will host the GMCT Final Four and Championship for the first time ever. Championship Games will be held on Friday, February 25th with the GMCT Girls Final at 6:00 PM followed by the Boys Final at 8:00 PM. Previously, the GMCT Basketball Championships have been held at the Rutgers Athletic Center, Middlesex County College, South Brunswick High School, Woodbridge High School, and even Kean University in 2016.
The last time the GMCT Championships were held at the Rutgers Athletic Center, now Jersey Mikes Arena, was in 2018. The last two GMCT finals were held at Middlesex County College. Semifinal round games had been played at Rutgers from the inception of the GMC in 1986 until 1996. Since then, the semis have been played at Middlesex County College, East Brunswick, South Brunswick, and New Brunswick. The GMCT Girls Semifinals were held in Spotswood back in 2018.

The Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament returns in 2022 after a one year hiatus. Last year, there were no official division championships or GMCT due to COVID. Instead the GMC held 7 four team pods including the Karl Anthony Towns-Jay Williams Pod, which was the de-facto GMC Championship.
