2023 GMCT Mock Seeding #2

Perth Amboy’s Lavion Balthazar scores up for a score in the second half of the Panthers GMC White Division clash with Edison on Tuesday night. Edison defeated Amboy, 53-47.

SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Believe it or not everyone, the 2023 Greater Middlesex Conference boys basketball tournament is less than a week away. The GMCT seeding meeting is scheduled for Friday, February 3rd. Play-In round games are slated for the next day, Saturday, February 4th.

With all of that in mind, GMC Hoops decided to take some time to go through another draft of the mock seeding for the 2023 GMCT. This particular draft of the mock seeding takes into account the order of the GMC Red Pilot Program standings, which only counts the first games that all the teams in the division played head to head since Aquinas and Joes only played the all the GMC Red public schools once with the exception of Colonia.

The latest edition of the GMCT Boys Mock Seeding also takes into account results from Monday and Tuesday. Now keep in mind that this is not official. This exercise is being done so that the players, coaches, parents, and fans get a little bit of an idea of how the GMCT seeding committee may be thinking.
