Team New Jersey is now 3-0 in their Interscholastic Unified 03 Pool Play group at the Special Olympic USA Games on Tuesday in Seattle, Washington. The Moorestown High School Unified Basketball Team won their two games on Tuesday.

Team New Jersey also won 25-14 over Team New York on Monday in their first game.

According to the Special Olympics website, Team New Jersey will have a game at 3:30 pm on July 4th at the Marv Harshman Court against the position No. 4 team. That very well could be Team Washington, who went 0-3 in pool play.

Team Washington was defeated by Team Ohio 38-8 on July 2nd. Then later that night, they were defeated 48-17 by Team New York.

As previously mentioned, Team Washington was defeated 26-16 by Team New Jersey on Tuesday morning.

If Team New Jersey wins that match, they’ll face either Team New York or Team Ohio on Thursday morning at the University of Washington’s Alaska Airlines Arena at 11:45 PST. The winner of this match would be the winner of the tournament and will receive medals.

Team New Jersey won the first-ever NJSIAA Unified Basketball Championship at the CURE Insurance Arena in March over the Union City Soaring Eagles to advance to the Special Olympics USA Games. Moorestown won the game 25-21.

Team New Jersey consists of Robert Fletcher, Grace Ricciotti-Molishus, Ian Banquier, Raymond Brady, Thomas Crable, Colin Ginley, Michael Grant, Ricardo Teixeira Filho, Megan Vazquez, and Marcus Harvey.
