NJ 13U AAU Div. 2 States Recap: Jersey Shore Devils Get The Win

Shaun Belbey Dropped 15 Points In The Semifinals.

Shaun Belby scored 15 points and Jack Laffy added 13 markers as Jersey Shore Devils defeated F.A.C.E.S. in the AAU 13U Div. 2 NJ State semifinal. Ray Montilous finished with 11 points for F.A.C.E.S. in the loss. Jersey Shore Devils will meet Team Battle in the finals tomorrow.

Top Performers

Shaun Belby Guard (JS Devils)- Belby got involved in the offense early. In transition he drove to the cup and over powered the smaller F.A.C.E.S. guards. In the closing moments he stepped to the charity stripe and knocked down a few free throws to stretch the lead.

Jack Laffy Forward (JS Devils)- Laffy woke up in the second half and showed that size matters. He scored on a few plays inside and crashed the glass for multiple rebounds. He also had a few free throws from the charity stripe.

Ray Montilous Forward (F.A.C.E.S.)- Montilous led the comeback attempt for “The Boys In Black”. He drove past the slower post players and glided for layups. He also showed a decent drop step into the lane for a bucket.

RJ Cole Guard (F.A.C.E.S.)- Cole drained a deep trey to cut the lead in the 4th quarter. His ball pressure caused the JS Devil’s guards to turn the rock over. His basketball IQ stands out.
