The 18th annual Ocean City PBA Tipoff Weekend is coming and this year has a great lineup of games featuring some of the top teams in South Jersey!

The event concludes on Sunday with the Jack Boyd Memorial Doubleheader, girls and boys games between Ocean City and Mainland.  Boyd, a member of the South Jersey Basketball Hall of Fame who died in January 2014, was a coach at Ocean City and his sons were star athletes at Mainland.

Right before the Boyd Doubleheader, highly-ranked Atlantic City will take on highly-ranked Timber Creek in a boys game.  Sunday begins with a boy-girl Egg Harbor Township doubleheader - the EHT girls against Wildwood Catholic and the boys against St. Joseph.

Saturday begins with two great girls matches - Middle Township against Southern Regional and Holy Spirit vs. Atlantic Tech. Then the Holy Spirit boys will take on Atlantic Christian School.

The final two games on Saturday are boys games with Wildwood Catholic, returning a strong lineup, meeting Southern, led by 6-6 Peyton Wejnert, committed to Pace University. Then St. Augustine Prep, a consensus No. 1 in South Jersey in pre-season polls, will face three-time defending NJSIAA Group 2 state champion Newark Tech.  The Prep returns all stars Sa'eed Nelson (an American University recruit) and 6-6 junior Justyn Mutts. Newark Tech is led by 1,000-point guard Mustafa Lawrence.

Admission is $6 for the entire day with portions of the proceeds benefiting The Edythe Selvagn Memorial Scholarship Fund.  And. as we have for more than 12 years, each team brings non-perishable food items and unwrapped toys.  The Ocean City PBA donates them to food banks and the Toys for Tots campaign.

We hope you can be there - directions to Ocean City High School are available at www.primeevents.net - along with results from previous Tipoff Weekends and all-time records.
