The Red Devils from Rancocas Valley traveled to Bordentown to take on the Scotties but were not hospitable guest. Every player on Rancocas Valley’s bench found his way into the scoring column during this Burlington County inter-division boy’s basketball game. The Red Devils scored more points in the first quarter than Bordentown scored during the first half. While neither of these teams will be participating in the upcoming playoffs, both teams wanted to finish the season strong. Rancocas Valley cruised easily to an 88-41 victory to end their three game losing streak.

Rancocas Valley controlled this game by their defense alone. Controlling the tempo and the offense and defensive boards, the Red Devils rolled to a 24-11 advantage after the first quarter. That lead swelled to 48-22 heading into the break. The second half of this game saw all of the reserved players get their chance score points and they did. Rancocas Valley was led by Tracy Lewis’ game high 20 points, Chris Verbickis scored 15, Spencer Harvey 14 and Desmond Moses added 11 points. Bordentown’s Tom Knapp finished the game with 10 points.
