Point Beach Set for Manasquan Match-Up


Point Pleasant Beach will be looking to knock off a hot Manasquan squad this Saturday. The Garnet Gulls are off to an uncharacteristically slow start. The Central Jersey Group 1 runner-ups from last year, Point Beach will be looking to return to their winning ways. They hope to do so through the play of their senior point guard, Jimmy Panzini.

Panzini told HoopGroup.com that if his team wants to be successful, like they were last season, it will require a full-on team effort. “The key for a successful season is to play as a team and trust your teammates both on and off the floor” he said. He also cited the Shore Conference title and the state championship as goals for this year’s Point Beach squad.

When asked how he and his teammates have worked to attain these goals, Panzini told us: “We’ve prepared for this season by working out in the offseason and preseason in open gyms and lifting.”

Panzini is also no stranger to the Boardwalk Showcase, as he was voted his Point Beach’s MVP at last year’s event. As for this year, Panzini told us: “We are definitely excited for the Hoop Group Boardwalk Showcase and play in front of a pack crowd against another strong team.” It certainly will be interesting to see if how Point Beach will fare against Manasquan, a team that is generally considered a contender for the Shore Conference title. The game will definitely give Panzini and his team a chance to validate their team and possibly return them to their winning ways.
