2002 GMC HOOPS TEAM OF THE YEAR--CARTERET RAMBLERS

The Carteret Ramblers started off the year kind of on shaky ground as they lost handily to Paramus Catholic, and then faced an uphill battle in the Gene Haley Memorial Holiday Tournament at Edison High School when star senior center Omar Alston went down with an ankle injury in the first round against Cardinal McCarrick of South Amboy.

However, during the rest of their game against Cardinal McCarrick, and for the entire overtime thriller against J.F. Kennedy in the Championship, Carteret got a glimpse of its potential through standout efforts by Rob Carter, Andrew Hill, and Lamarr Morris stepped up along with Wilfredo Fuerte, Steve Agostinho, and Mike Szczesny to pull out both games.

The Kennedy game was a defining moment for the Ramblers, which found out a lot about its character and supporting cast. Wins later on in the season against Sayreville and New Brunswick would be proof of that as Carteret went on to win its first GMC Tournament since 1986.

Congratulations to the entire Carteret High School Basketball program for their success this year.

2002 GMC HOOPS PLAYER OF THE YEAR--JUSTIN CHIERA, COLONIA HIGH SCHOOL

He did it again folks! Despite his team, the Colonia Patriots falling short in the GMC Tournament Championship to the Carteret Ramblers, our selection for 2002 Team of the Year, Justin Chiera continued to prove why he is not only one of the most dominant players in the conference, but also one of the most valuable.

Chiera was among the leaders in scoring, Field Goal Percentage, Three Point Field Goal Percentage, Free Throw Percentage, Rebounding, Assists, Assist to Turnover Ratio, Steals, and even Charges.

The defensive charges stat was the most impressive of all. When your team's best player is third on the team in the number of offensive fouls he's drawn, then you know he has to be Player of the Year. Congratulations Justin, on another fine season, and best of luck in college.

2002 GMC HOOPS COACH OF THE YEAR--KEN PACE OF COLONIA HIGH SCHOOL

Well, our Coach of the Year ballot went down to the wire this season for the most part. We had a tough choice just like last year, but this time, we had a game help decide it. Both South Brunswick Head Coach Hayward Vereen and Colonia Coach Ken Pace had tremendous seasons, and endured some adversity to get there.

However, Colonia defeated South Brunswick in an exciting GMC Tournament Semifinal at Middlesex County College this year, and that victory made our choice easy. And why not? Pace was just as deserving last year, but didn't get the award thanks to Odie Page, and a strong second place finish by Edison's Mike Meagher.

But, this year, Pace had some very tough moments as his squad got off to a 2-5 start that was due to a combination of tough scheduling and some inexperience in some positions. Nevertheless, he was able to get his Patriots back on track with the help of Justin Chiera.

Colonia won 16 of its last 20 including three victories over South Plainfield, two over Sayreville, and big wins over Carteret in the regular season, and Piscataway and South Brunswick in the GMC Tournament. Congratulations, Coach Pace, on a job well done, and best of luck this upcoming season.

2002 GMC HOOPS GAME OF THE YEAR--JANUARY 8th, 2002, SAYREVILLE VS. COLONIA AT COLONIA HIGH SCHOOL

There were many candidates for game of the year this year, but our choice was the first clash between White Division rivals, Sayreville, which was ranked number one in the GMC Hoops Top Ten, and Colonia, the defending division and conference champion, which was in dire straits with a 2-5 record, and was in a must win situation.

Trailing 55-48 with about seven minutes remaining, Colonia went on a 15-5 run to tie the game at 60-60 with 3:37 remaining. Led by Justin Chiera, who had 15 points in the final period including 8 of 8 at the charity stripe down the stretch, and Nick Smith, who had 9 of his 13 points in the fourth quarter including a layup off a pass from Chiera to give the Patriots a lead that they would never relinquish.

Chiera ended up with 39 points on the night. Sayreville, which had started the season with 8 wins in their first nine games including wins over New Brunswick, Irvington, St. Mary's of Jersey City, South Plainfield, and North Bergen, was never the same team after that despite defeating Piscataway in the Quarterfinal round of the Central Jersey Group IV State Tournament while Colonia ended up winning 16 of its last 20 games, which earned them second place in the White Division, and in the GMC overall.

2002 GMC HOOPS MOST IMPROVED TEAM AWARD, SOUTH AMBOY GOVERNORS

A year ago during the 2000-2001 campaign, the South Amboy Governors experienced complete and utter devastation as they went 1-21 on the season including an 0-10 record within the Gold Division. Things didn't seem to have much hope for improving in 2001-2002 as they opened the season with a tough 59-37 loss again crosstown rival, and perennial division winner, Cardinal McCarrick.

However, the Governors would come back splitting their next four games, and then winning 11 of their last 21 to improve to 13-12 overall and 4-6 in divisional play. The Guvs even earned a Central Jersey Group I State Tournament berth, where they gave eventual and defending champion Highland Park some trouble in the first half before the Owls pulled away late in the second quarter.

Dan Nuzzie led all South Amboy players with a 16.6 points per game average while Mario Choinski averaged a double double, and Nick Shaw scored over 13 points per game. South Amboy will have its work cut out for itself this year with the losses of Nuzzie and Choinski to graduation, but they will still have the feisty competitor in Nick Shaw returning this year so you never know. Congratulations Guvs, on a job well done and best of luck this coming season.

2002 GMC HOOPS MOST IMPROVED PLAYER AWARD, AARON PARKS OF SOUTH PLAINFIELD HIGH SCHOOL

This is our first year giving out this award, and we thought that no one would be better than Aaron Parks for this particular honor. The South Plainfield Tigers were one of the pleasant surprises last year as they ended up 14-11 overall on the season. One of the main reasons behind the suprising fourth place finish in the White Division last year was the tremendous improvement in senior forward Aaron Parks. Parks, who was a reserve much of the prior season as a junior, only averaged about 5 points per game.

Over the next year, Parks bulked up and got in better shape, and the hard work paid off as he averaged 9.3 points per game and 5.3 rebounds per game. One of his key performances of the year was in a game against J.F. Kennedy on the road on January 11, 2002. Parks had 25 points in the game including nine field goals and seven free throws. Six of those nine field goals came in the first half when he went 6 of 7 from the floor to lead the Tigers to a 34-32 lead at halftime on their way to winning 70-66.

That game would be a key early season game for South Plainfield as they went on to sweep the season series from the Mustangs and knock off Sayreville. One area that Parks improved in significantly was his field goal shooting percentage as he ended up with 51 percent from the floor overall this past season. Congratulations, Aaron, on a job well done, and best of luck in future endeavors.

2002 GMC HOOPS SCHOLAR ATHLETE AWARD, ROYCE MORGAN OF COLONIA HIGH SCHOOL

This is the first time we are giving out this award, and we thought no one would be better for this award than Royce Morgan of Colonia High School. We had been watching the development of Royce Morgan, younger brother of Tyrone Morgan, over the past couple seasons. He was always a fine player underneath for the Patriots of Colonia. One of his first big contributions was in the 2001 GMC Tournament Quarterfinal against New Brunswick, where he came up big off the bench for Colonia.

He continued his solid play over the summer, where he led a scrappy Colonia team to the finals of the J.P. Stevens Summer League Tournament before losing to Piscataway 32-31. However, one thing we didn't know about him was his fine work in the classroom. But, that changed when the folks at GMC Hoops got a hold of the annual Star-Ledger High School Football Preview, which had an article about Morgan.

In it, the article stated that Royce was an outstanding student, who was quite interested in mathematics and science. He scored a 1260 on his SAT and had a B+ average going into his senior year. He eventually recieved a scholarship and now plays football at Lehigh University. Congratulations, Royce, on showing us all how to get in done in both the classroom and on the court.

2002 GMC HOOPS DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR, ROB CARTER OF CARTERET HIGH SCHOOL

Although we are giving out All Defensive Team Honors for the second year in a row, this is our first year giving out an award to a single player for defensive excellence. We thought of no one other than Rob Carter of Carteret, who was the latest in a line of great defensive players to come from Carteret such as Jose Medina and Freddy Hill.

Carter is an outstanding point guard, who came to prominence in the Ramblers run to their first conference title since the very first year of the actual GMC Tournament back in 1986 when Keith Hughes led Carteret with 40 points in an overtime 69-67 victory over New Brunswick. His fine defensive efforts against the likes of Marvin Taylor and Justin Chiera in the semifinal and championship games were a large reason why Carteret eventually won the title.

He also turned in fine defensive efforts in two other games that we saw him play in against J.F. Kennedy in the Gene Haley Tournament and East Brunswick on the weekend prior to the start of the GMC Tournament. Congratulations, Rob, on a stellar defensive effort during the year, and best of luck in college and future endeavors.

2002 GMC HOOPS SIXTH MAN OF THE YEAR, JIM JOWORSIAK OF SOUTH BRUNSWICK HIGH SCHOOL

Here is another GMC Hoops Award that is debuting this year, and our winner for this past season was South Brunswick's Jim Joworsiak, who gave South Brunswick a big boost off the bench throughout the season. And it showed as the Vikings jumped out to a 15-0 record before losing to Perth Amboy in overtime 72-66.

South Brunswick went on to claim the number one seed in the GMC Tournament, where they won their first two games before losing to Colonia in the semifinals. Joworsiak played an integral role in the Vikings phenomenal season. Coming off the bench often, Jim averaged 5.4 points per game, 3.3 rebounds per game, 1.8 steals per game, and 1.5 assists per game while playing in 22 games this season.

He also shot slightly over 31 percent from three point range, and a couple of those three pointers came in handy in a road win at Piscataway. Joworsiak also came up big with a number of key defensive plays down the stretch against the Chiefs as well as in a losing cause against Colonia in the semifinal. Nice work, Jim, and congratulations.

2002 GMC HOOPS BUCKET BRIGADE AWARD, JUSTIN CHIERA OF COLONIA HIGH SCHOOL

This is another award that is premiering this year, and it is quite apropos to have Justin Chiera of Colonia as our first recipient of this award. Fine work Justin, and we hope to hear more about you in the future at the college level.

This particular honor, which goes for best overall field goal percentage went to Justin by virtue of his 54 percent shooting from both two and three point range in 2002. He combined to take 426 shots while making a total of 228 of them. By the way, he also shot 90 of 108 at the foul line for 83 percent overall.

Putting all of these numbers together, and you can see why Justin was the top scorer in the Greater Middlesex Conference last year. Another fine effort put in by Chiera, who is now attending Central Connecticut State of the Northeastern Conference. Special kudos go out to fellow teammate and fine scholar, Royce Morgan of Colonia as he connected on over 56 percent of his shots.

2002 GMC HOOPS SHARPSHOOTER AWARD, JUSTIN CHIERA OF COLONIA HIGH SCHOOL

We know that this might be getting a bit repetitive, but the stats don't lie. Last year, Justin Chiera netted 46.8 percent of his three point attempts. Chiera was also among the leaders in number of three pointers made with 81. With his remarkable shooting efforts from the floor throughout the season, Chiera willed his Colonia Patriots into a lot of games that they may have not deserved to be in.

He almost single handedly won the GMC Hoops Game of the Year with 39 points including 15 in the final stanza while dishing off several assists to teammate Nick Smith against Sayreville. Coming in second in the race for Sharpshooter honors was the surprising T.J Gilsenan of East Brunswick Vo-Tech, who netted 50 three pointers this season and connected on 43 percent of his attempts. His fine shooting included 10 three pointers against Timothy Christian.

We tip our hats off to both players for their excellence beyond the arc.

2002 GMC HOOPS HOOPSHOOT AWARD, NICK SMITH OF COLONIA HIGH SCHOOL

Another award that is in its first year with GMC Hoops, the Hoopshoot Award goes to the top foul shooter. Now, although this particular award recipient only had 45 attempts on the season, the fact that Nick Smith connected on 41 of those attempts for an outstanding 91 percent from the line deserves our honor.

Another factor that convinced us was the fact that he was only a freshman. Nick played in all 27 games for the Patriots, and averaged a little bit more than 8 points per game, which included several 20 point games early on in the season. Another player that deserves a mention is South Brunswick's junior forward Chris Brown, who hit on 45 of 51 attempts at the foul line for slightly above 88 percent on the season.

Both of these players have continued to work hard in the off season, and will be heard from again this coming year. Congratulations to both players for their fine performances in an area that most players at this level do not succeed very well in.

2002 GMC HOOPS VERSATILITY AWARD, JOE CELMER OF NORTH BRUNSWICK HIGH SCHOOL

Here comes another first year honor, and our first ever recipient of this award had some tough competition from a teammate of his. Joe Celmer was pushed to the brink by fellow North Brunswick teammate Aaron Carter as they both we among the GMC Hoops statistical leaders in five different categories, but since we selected Carter as a reserve to the All Windex Team, we decided to settle on Celmer for this honor.

We believe it was the perfect choice. Celmer was among our stat leaders in scoring, rebounding, blocked shots, field goal percentage, and free throw percentage. One of his best efforts of the year was on January 23, 2002 when he put together a double double of 19 points and 10 rebounds to help North Brunswick score its first big upset of the year over J.F. Kennedy by the score of 62-54.

Both Celmer and Carter will be key for the Raiders this year along with Shaheid Williams and Derek Scott in North Brunswick's quest to rise to the top of the GMC White Division. Good work this past season guys, and best of luck this coming year.

2002 GMC HOOPS MOST EXCITING PLAYER TO WATCH, DARNELL EDWARDS OF EAST BRUNSWICK VO-TECH HIGH SCHOOL

This year, Darnell Edwards used to return punts and kickoffs for New Brunswick High School a couple years ago before the Zebras began their quest to win a Central Jersey Group II State Championship. Despite already playing a very exciting position in punt returner, Edwards transferred to East Brunswick Vo-Tech last year to play basketball there.

Despite enduring a difficult season with the 0-20 Tigers, Edwards played and started in 19 games, and played in all 76 quarters. In those 19 games, Edwards averaged 18 points per game including 37 points in a loss against Academy Charter on February 6, 2002. That effort earned him 1st team All GMC Gold Division Honors, and we decided to give him this first ever honor for being the Most Exciting Player To Watch in the GMC.

Pretty appropriate honor for a punt and kick returner. In two games that the folks at GMC Hoops saw him play (vs. Perth Amboy Vo-Tech and Dunellen), Edwards single handedly kept his team in both games to the very end. In the game against Perth Amboy Vo-Tech in particular on December 21, 2001, Edwards had 24 points, and made a number of steals that led to finger roll baskets at the other end.

The combination of him and T.J. Gilsenan gave East Brunswick Vo-Tech a potent backcourt combination in spite of their winless season. Congratulations, Darnell, and best of luck this season in trying to turn things around.

2002 GMC HOOPS MOST ENTERTAINING COACH AWARD, KARL TOWNS OF PISCATAWAY VO-TECH HIGH SCHOOL

Most of the time when the folks at GMC Hoops go to see a Gold Division game, we usually don't have to pay to get in. That is particularly true when he go to one of the Vo-Tech schools such as Piscataway Vo-Tech. However, with the coaching performance done every game by Coach Towns, we sometimes feel guilty about not paying.

He is the kind of coach that wears his emotions on his sleeve during the course of a game. He will also go to drastic measures to make his point with his team. For example, in a game in January, 2001 against East Brunswick Vo-Tech, his Raiders were leading 46-31 with only 2:48 remaining in the game. He instructs his starters on the floor to spread the floor, and run four corners.

When his players don't comply, he proceeds to clear the bench and put in all his reserves. East Brunswick Vo-Tech almost came back to win the game as Jamaal Jenkins missed a three pointer at the end and Piscataway Vo-Tech came away with the victory 49-46.

Nevertheless, Towns, who was an assistant to Coach John Mazurek at Perth Amboy, and Highland Park Head Coach Rocco Funari when he coached at East Brunswick Vo-Tech, and an All Middlesex County Tournament Team selection in 1979 when he played at Piscataway High School, has done a tremendous job in turning the basketball fortunes of Piscataway Vo-Tech around.

In just three seasons, he has gotten the team its first two state tournament berths since 1995, and two second place finishes to Cardinal McCarrick in the Gold Division Standings. Thank you Coach Towns for not only your tremendous effort these past three seasons, but also for making your games fun to watch. Special thanks goes to Marquise Perry, who helped make this award possible for Coach Towns.

2002 GMC HOOPS FRESHMAN OF THE YEAR, MARQUIS JONES OF SOUTH PLAINFIELD HIGH SCHOOL

In the first game of the season, Marquis Jones was coming off the bench for South Plainfield when they took on Bishop Ahr. However, after that game where the Tigers lost 58-43, Coach Lubreski had to make some changes, and one of them was to give some of his young players including Jones, a freshman, more opportunities during games.

That decision would pay off as South Plainfield won 14 games, finished fourth in the rough and tumble White Division, scored upset wins of J.F. Kennedy (twice), Sayreville, and Hunterdon Central, and made their first appearance in the state tournament since the 1999-2000 season. Jones' development during the season had a lot to do with it. His work along with the improvement of Aaron Parks made it possible for the Tigers to become more competitive in 2002. In 23 games, Jones averaged 9.3 points per game, 4.3 rebounds per game, 1.9 assists per game, 1.6 steals per game, and shot 44 percent from the floor and 66 percent from the line.

Jones's overall performance help him edge out some stiff competition from Nick Smith of Colonia, Dan Stonkus of South Brunswick, Jermaine Clark of Perth Amboy, and both Danny Gonzalez and Devon Hickman of St. Peter's of New Brunswick. Congratulations Marquis, and we hope to hear a lot more from you over the next three years.

2002 GMC HOOPS FRESHMAN TEAM OF THE YEAR--SAYREVILLE BOMBERS

Early on in the season, the Sayreville Bombers' freshman squad lost a close one to New Brunswick by the score of 58-54. However, as the season progressed Sayreville continued to improve, and when the annual GMC Freshman Tournament began at Perth Amboy in early February, the Baby Bombers took flight.

It all culminated with a 61-41 victory over East Brunswick in the Championship game on February 14th, 2002. Ironically, the same New Brunswick freshman team that defeated them earlier in the season lost to Piscataway in the consolation game on a last second buzzer beating shot, 51-49.

Congratulations to the Baby Bombers on their fine season, and best of luck in years to come. Special thanks goes to the manager of the East Brunswick Freshman Team, Michael Uslan for providing much of the information used in this article.

2002 GMC HOOPS JV TEAM OF THE YEAR--ST. JOSEPH'S FALCONS

The St. Joseph's Falcons endured a very difficult season last year at the Varsity level as they lost all five starters from the previous season, and seemed out of sync early on in the year. However, the future remained bright for the fans residing in the Bird Cage as the Junior Varsity team had a tremendous season that led to a top seed in the JV Tournament in East Brunswick, and two hard fought victories over Carteret and Cardinal McCarrick.

The game against Cardinal McCarrick certainly had its share of gut checks for the young Falcons as they trailed at halftime. However, led by Ray Hamblin, Jay Dolphin, Mark Rodgers, and Rob Pietrocola, the Falcons came back to win the game by the final score of 46-39. GMC Hoops was at the game, and enjoyed it so much that it decided to give it JV Game of the Year honors.

Many of these youngsters will help Coach Mark Taylor find a supporting cast for the likes of Calvin Cannon, Jonathan Dixon, and Tom Scott as they look to contend for Red Division, and Conference Honors this year. Congratulations to the JV squad of St. Joseph's High School on a job well done.

2002 GMC HOOPS SURPRISE JV TEAM OF THE YEAR--CARDINAL MC CARRICK EAGLES

The Eagles of Cardinal McCarrick have been on the rise for the past five years under the guidance of Head Coach Joe Lewis. However, now, their junior varsity team under the tutelage of one of Lewis' former players Jesse Holovacko, who played guard as a senior for Lewis in the Head Coach's first season back in 1995-96. That season, the Eagles finished second to East Brunswick Vo-Tech in the Gold Division standings, but since then the Eagles have won five consecutive division titles.

The future looks even brighter though as young players such as Kevin Baptiste-Oley, Manny Rodriguez, Mike Garcia, and Billy Wagner helped Holovacko to earn a sixth seed in the JV Tournament in East Brunswick, and they continued to play well in the tournament as they knocked off a couple higher seeds to earn a berth in the final, where they gave top seeded St. Joseph's all it could handle before losing by seven.

Moreover, many of these players including Rodriguez and Baptiste-Oley made major contributions to the varsity team during the regular season including a hard fought victory on the road over Perth Amboy Vo-Tech on January 23, 2002. Congratulations, to the Cardinal McCarrick Junior Varsity Basketball Team, and best of luck as you move up to the Blue Division this year.

2002 GMC HOOPS CINDERELLA STORY--CARTERET RAMBLERS JV TEAM

Not only has the Carteret Ramblers experienced tremendous success at the Varsity level, but their JV and Freshman programs have done very well also. This past year was no exception as the JV squad led by the likes of Mike Liquori, Arnold Rosado, Mike Sczesney, and Alfredo Rodriguez, the Carteret Ramblers Junior Varsity squad pulled off one of the great runs in the JV Tournament.

Entering the tournament as a 13th seed, the Ramblers went on to win their first and second round games over the fourth and fifth seeded teams. Then, they played St. Joseph's in the semifinal, and lost to the eventual champions. Nevertheless, besides Cardinal McCarrick's great run, it was one of the biggest surprises in the Junior Varsity Tournament at East Brunswick.

In addition to their efforts in the JV Tournament, Carteret received solid contributions from both Liquori and Mike Sczesney in the Gene Haley Holiday Tournament at Edison, which the Carteret Ramblers varsity team won the championship. Congratulations, to the Carteret Ramblers Junior Varsity Squad on a superb end to the season.

2002 GMC HOOPS JV GAME OF THE YEAR--CARDINAL MC CARRICK EAGLES VS. ST. JOSEPH'S FALCONS

It was a classic David versus Goliath matchup as the Eagles of Cardinal McCarrick, which were a suprising sixth seed took on the top seeded St. Joseph's Falcons in the Championship game of the JV Tournament. In a tournament that had already seen its share of surprises thanks to McCarrick and 13th seeded Carteret, was well on its way to another as Manny Rodriguez, Kevin Baptiste-Oley, and Billy Wagner (15 points), led the Eagles to a strong start over the favored Falcons.

The Eagles took it to the eventual champs as they hit some early three pointers and got some great play underneath from Wagner to jump out to a 23-19 lead at halftime. However, led by Ray Hamblin, Jay Dolphin, and Mark Rodgers, the Falcons JV squad tightened the clamps at the defensive end as they pulled to within 34-31 going into the fourth quarter. That's when Rob Pietrocola (12 points) stepped in, and came up with some key baskets to put St. Joseph's over the top to a 46-39 victory.

Fans on both sides were quite passionate although the Cardinal McCarrick fans showed tremendous amounts of enthusiasm over the course of the game. This game could be the beginning of a rivalry as they played a couple more times during the summer at the Middlesex County College Summer League including in the semifinals, where St. Joseph's rallied from behind again to win by two. Congratulations to both teams on playing a superb game.
