After an amazing back and forth battle with the #2 seeded Northampton Community College Spartans, the #3 Brookdale Jersey Blues women prevailed, winning 73-68.
The win was a genuine Jersey Blues team effort as every player scored. Four were in double-figures. Sophomore guard Giana Piccini topped the scoring with 17 points, and freshman guard Rha-khia Mack accrued another double-double (her 12th of the season) with 15 points and 13 rebounds, and three steals. Following Mack was an additional 15 points from freshman forward Jasmine Sullivan, and freshman guard, Carissa Reye, added a substantial 11 points.
The Blues will travel to Sewell, NJ, to play the #1 seed, Rowan College of South Jersey – Gloucester Roadrunners, in the Region XIX Finals on Saturday, February 26th, @ 1:00 pm.
