VOTE FOR YEAR’S BEST DUNK AND CLUTCH PLAY

Evan Madigan of Red Bank Catholic is among the finalists in Shore Sports Zone “clutch play of the year” balloting for 2016. And the local field is crowded in the race for Shore area “dunk of the year,” including a sweet one by Elijah McAllister of Rumson-Fair Haven.

Polls are open through Friday at 3 p.m., and winners will be announced at SSZ’s Winter Sports Banquet on March 24.

RFH ADVANCES AS BARRY LEADS BLOWOUT

Hosting Johnson in the Central Jersey Group 2 playoffs, the boys’ basketball team of Rumson-Fair Haven ran wild in racking up a 77-47 victory Thursday night. Brendan Barry led the home team with 30 points, and Shore Sports Zone was there.

R-FH now heads to Manasquan, hoping to avenge a triple-overtime loss that knocked the Dawgs out of last month’s Shore Conference Tournament.
