In a thrilling and memorable final day of play at the Roadrunner Classic, Bergen CC edged Williamson Trade and Gloucester CC edged Burlington CC on a pair of game-winning three point shots. In the consolation game Bergen CC was led again by hot shooting Ranier Garcia who led all scorers with 21 points. Williamson Trade played well behind 20 points from Justin Swift and led with just seconds remaining when Garcia struck for the final time from the left corner to win the game. The Championship Game was led from the start by Burlington CC. Luis Baltazar had his second outstanding game of the tournament scoring 17 points and controlling the ball for the Barons. It was the late heroics from GCC that stole the show though. Jeff Lewis (19) and Juwan Alford (13) led a second half comeback that kept the Roadrunners close and then Nick Lawson heated up at just the right time. Lawson had hit seven 3-pointers on Friday night but struggled to find his shot today until the final four minutes when he would collect four more 3's, the final of which was the game winner. Shawn Lett set up the play and found Lawson on the right wing for a deep shot that hit nothing but net, gave the Roadrunners their first lead of the game, and sealed the teams first Roadrunner Classic Championship since 2007. Lawson was named the tournaments Most Valuable Player.

2009 Recap:

The 2009 Roadrunner Classic Champions - Burlington County College

The Barons came from behind in both games to claim their first ever Classic title. They attempted only one three point shot in the championship game and used the strong inside play of 6'5 Rashon Bellinger, 6'5 Leland Tate and 6'6 Dominique Conner to claim the title.

The Barons came into the tournament with an 0-4 record and were thought to have very little chance of claiming the title.

The Barons are an NJCAA Division II program and members of the Garden State Athletic Conference and Region XIX

The GCC Roadunners led most of the first half but went into the half tied at 30-30. In the second half, Essex CC guard Allen Weathers caught fire and scored 11 of his game-high 17 points. Weathers and Essex held off a late GCC charge to win the game and Weathers took home the tournament MVP award. Coach Tarik Brown praised his teams effort, “We are a deep team, we run a lot of players in and out and they all work hard.”

For the Roadrunners, sophomore Alonzo Gailliard (Washington Township) scored 12 of his 15 points in the second half. “Alonzo stepped up and kept us in the game and had a chance at the end but we could not convert,” Steve Gangloff. “We played better than we did last night. We have a lot to be proud of from our effort this weekend.”
