Bill Iezzi: Willingboro Handles Cinnaminson Again

Cinnaminson and Willingboro could meet again in the NJSIAA South Group 2 boys' basketball tournament, but if they do, the outcome could be the same.

Willingboro, with its speed, athleticism and pressure defense, has defeated the Pirates twice this season , 69-50 and 73-60.

Cinnaminson has one of the top scorers in South Jersey in Max DiLeo. The junior guard had been averaging 19.8 points per game before the last meeting between the two Burlco Patriot teams on Jan. 26. But the Chimeras held DiLeo to 12 points and junior guard Napolean Blamon to 16.

Senior forward Mike Gallo pumped in a game-high 24 points for Cinnaminson; however, he expressed frustration over the Pirates' inability to handle Willingboro's defensive pressure.

The Chimeras also shot well from the outside and inside and went 4-for-4 from the free-throw line.
