PLAYER TO WATCH
Montclair's offense goes as senior guard Myisha Hines-Allen goes. From the moment she stepped into Montclair High, it was clear that there was something special about Hines-Allen. She simply finds a way to the basket and has fine tuned her other skills. As a senior, she is not only a threat to drive to the hoop or sink a 3-pointer, the Louisville-bound guard can also back down in the post and dish out assists. Montclair's all-time leading scorer's hard work carries over to the defensive end, where she leads a deep group that includes Kayla Jennings, Alex Kerr and Ciara Stewart. Hines-Allen was also named a McDonald's All-America.

THE MONTCLAIR TIMES
The third time was very nearly the charm for the Montclair High School girls basketball team.
In their third meeting of the season with top-ranked Shabazz Saturday night at Newark's Essex County College, the Mounties played the 32 minutes of elite-level basketball they needed, putting themselves in position to earn a monumental victory.
But it wasn't meant to be, and No. 1 Shabazz edged No. 2 Montclair, 54-51, to win the Essex County Tournament for the sixth consecutive season.
While disappointed with the loss, the Mounties (19-6) will have no reason to hang their heads based on Saturday's performance against Shabazz, which won its 12th county title in 13 years. MHS was seeking its first ECT crown.
"I told the girls that I was so proud of them," Montclair coach Bianca Brown said. "We played a full-out four quarters, and you could see we learned so much from the first two Shabazz games. You'd like to make those shots at the end to tie or win the game, but we just wanted to be in position to make those shots. There's no agony, it's not upsetting. It just didn't fall our way tonight."
