As the game clock ticked away Tuesday night, Sayreville High School girls basketball star Jackie Rodriguez took over.

Trailing for the first time all night, Rodriguez calmly knocked down a game-tying 3-pointer and then made 3-4 free throws inside in the final minute, helping Sayreville edge Colonia 44-40.

The rescuing act has become standard for Rodriguez this season, as the senior point guard has averaged 22.6 points per game, helping the Bombers to a 10-3 record.

“We haven’t had a point guard like her in a long time,” Sayreville head coach Tara Currie said. “To have a player like her a huge for our team; she handles the ball so well and it helps us be successful. She’s grown a lot for us this year, dishing to teammates and learning not to do everything by herself. But I’m sure glad to have her on the team.”

Rodriguez, who eclipsed the 1,000-point mark against J.P. Stevens last week, and Sayreville have made the Greater Middlesex Conference’s White Division a four-team race with six games to play, as South Plainfield, Sayreville, Monroe and Bishop Ahr are all mathematically alive to win the division.

Kadijah Mathews, Kyra Fox, Alex Walker Not Enough For North Brunswick

Kadijah Mathews (16 points, Senior), Kyra Fox (16 points, Junior), Alexzandra Walker (5 points, Freshman) combined for 37 of the total 42 points scored for North Brunswick as they battled South Plainfield. North Brunswick went to South Plainfield needing a total team effort on the offensive and defensive side of the ball in order to return home victorious last night. Although the boxscore does not reflect all the individual contributions the team played hard but fell short of a victory. The Raiders will try to get back to 500 tonight as they take on Monroe at home. Click Here for more details…

Jackie Rodriguez scored 28 points, including the 1,000th of her career on a 3-pointer in the first quarter, to lead Sayreville to a 59-32 victory against J.P. Stevens in Sayreville. Rodriguez also grabbed 10 rebounds. With family, friends, and college coaches in attendance it did not take Jackie long to break into the history books. Flaring off of a screen she stepped back into one of her patented threes and history was made. However, Jackie decided to give everyone in attendance something to remember so with time winding down in the first half she took the inbound pass from a teammate and casually drained a three quarter court shot at the buzzer! Congratulations, the FBC Defenders are very proud of you!
