With both teams finishing 3-2 in pool play, the head-to-head result proved to be the decisive tie-breaker.
Lawrenceville combo guard Craig Moore led a balanced New Jersey attack with 13 points and four assists. Guard Paul Gause and forward Maurice Thomas each chipped in 12 points, while Rutgers bound Jaron Griffin tallied 10.
Taylor Griffin, the undersized yet strong 6-6 power forward from Athletes First, tied for team high scoring honors with nine points.
