The 2021-22 high school basketball season, for the most part, is over nationally, but not on Staten Island, of course.
In this borough, the season does not officially end until the classic Warren Jaques All-Star games have been played and that will be the case this week on consecutive days.
The Jaques Classic Boys matches will be played at Monsignor Farrell HS on Tuesday. The 8th grade match is scheduled for 6 p.m., followed by the high school competition at 7:30 p.m.
Then on Wednesday, the Jaques Classic Girls games will take place at Moore Catholic HS. The Grade 8 game will start at 5:30 p.m., followed by the high school game at 7:00 p.m.
For an overview of each of the eight rosters and coaches, please scroll down.
And remember, the annual Jaques Prize Memorial Dinner will take place on April 29 at LiGreci’s Staaten in West Brighton from 7.30pm. Tickets are $75 for adults and $50 for students and can be purchased by contacting Treasurer Bob Newman at 917-566-1755. .
