With the cut-off date for making the playoffs fast approaching, most teams were trying to win their final games to stay above or get to the 500 record mark. Highland hosting Winslow Township on the other hand were battling for the top position of the Olympic Conference Patriot division. Winslow's Antraye Miles scored his 1000th point in the second quarter to cap the afternoon off. Winslow's 59-49 victory put them in a tie for first place with Highland and Camden.
Right at the start of this game, Highland applied the full court press to disrupt any game plan Winslow had scripted. The defense would highlight the first quarter. Both teams started out slow offensively, but the second quarter belonged to the Eagles of Winslow Township. Highland's three point lead after the first quarter quickly evaporated as Winslow regained the lead. Junior Antraye Miles would record his 1000th and 1001st points from the free throw line. After his first attempt was made, the game was stopped to congratulate Miles for his achievements. Miles scored nine points in the quarter to help Winslow post a 31-22 lead at the half.
Highland began the second half by scoring the first 2 baskets, but the Eagles were determined to open this game up when they went on an 8-3 run to go ahead 46-33. Highland would get a boost from Bryon Pressley's 12 third quarter points, but that was not enough. Winslow would use the patient offense to slow things down to protect their lead.
Winslow showed a great deal of composer during this win as they did not get too rattled in the fourth quarter. Antraye Miles finished with a game high 25 points and Calvin Roland added 12 points for Winslow Township. Highland was led by Terrance Wynn's 21 points and Nate Butcher ended the game with 13 points.
