CINNAMINSON - The Cinnaminson High School boys' basketball team reached the South Jersey Group 2 semifinals for the second year in a row.


The third-seeded Pirates defeated sixth-seeded Overbrook, 49-34, in the S.J. Group 2 quarterfinals on Monday night. Senior Andrew Plaza recorded a double double with a game-high 17 points and 11 rebounds in the triumph. Plaza also recorded two assists and a steal. Sody Gantt tallied 12 points, eight rebounds, four assists and a block. Richmond baseball commit Noah Harvey charted 12 points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals. His twin brother, Drew Harvey, finished with four points, five rebounds and three assists in the Pirates' victory.

Shaun Mills led the Rams with a team-high 16 points in the setback. Amare Kee added five points, and Nic Johnson and Kevin Satchell scored four apiece. Overbrook concluded its season with a 20-8 record. The Pine Hill program has reached 20 wins in a single season in each of the past four seasons (excluding the 2020-21 season shortened by the COVID-19 pandemic). The Rams have won three straight Tri-County Conference Diamond Division titles.
