Today we finally get to drop the first Top 10 of the 2020-21 season. SJV and RBC are the clear favorites to start the season Both teams are deep in talent and are stacked with division one talent up and down their rosters. These two teams are playing monster schedules including a game against each other. So at some point we should get a true #1 seed going into the SCT tournament. The Bottom of the Top 10 is where their may be lots of movement in the Shore Conference. Teams like Jackson Memorial, TRN could sneak into the Top 10…. Manasquan, Manchester and St. Rose are among a group of schools that hope to make serious noise before the season is over. The SCT final 8 bracket will be a fight to the finish.

ST. JOHN VIANNEYThere is not much conversation here. They have all boxes checked. They are nationally ranked and defending SCT Champs and now have more unfinished business once again.

MANCHESTER- They have Destiny Adams and that is always a good start. The real question is where is the scoring coming from outside of Adams. Can a freshman in a conference loaded with elite point guards run the show. Amaya Bray will need to step up.

HOLMDELThey have size, experience, shooting, length and are battle tested. This is a team that could dance along the Top 20 cut line if they can find a point guard. This is a very talented crew.. the question is can they build on last years RBC upset win vs Top teams. Ryann Taylor will lead the way with Olivia Palmer. But this will have plenty of backup in Abby Ferguson who committed to Colgate and Katherine Martini who may have a breakout season.
