High School Basketball:
Willingboro Cruises Past Cinnaminson

When two teams are looking for ways to rebound from a slow start, it's always good to play a similar team in a similar situation. Willingboro and Cinnaminson are both fighting to get to five hundred-percentage basketball in their divisions. Willingboro was looking to win its second straight game against the host Pirates from Cinnaminson. The Chimeras had little problems from start to end to post a 61-48 Burlington County Conference boy's basketball game.

So far this season, Cinnaminson has been running into tough luck losing their games by a narrow 4.6 points but averaging over 60 points per game. Willingboro had defeated their Liberty division rival Moorestown and another divisional match up with Burlington Township on Saturday.

Willingboro began to establish their presence with the inside game with Joe McLean leading the way. The Chimeras would take a four-point lead into the locker room at the after, then steadily open up a comfortable lead in the second half. McLean and his game high 19 points led Willingboro while Greg Boose added 10 points. The Pirates' TJ Lassiter had a team high 14 points and Kesner Saintvil dropped in 10 points.
