NUTLEY, NJ – Matt Schettino scored his 1,000th career point off a floater in the first quarter to lead the Nutley High School boys’ varsity basketball team to a 65-50 victory against Cedar Grove, Tuesday, Feb. 13, at NHS.
A senior, Schettino became the fifth NHS boys’ basketball player to score 1,000 career points. Schettino finished with four points.
“Matt really became a leader this year,” head coach Robert Harbison said of his captain and three-year starter. “He matured a lot in the off-season and really worked hard to change his game to become a more complete player. He’s going to be a very difficult player to replace.”
Junior guard Marty Higgins had 19 points; junior center Elijah Acosta had 17; senior guard Anthony Fabiano had 10 and junior guard Jordan Swann had seven for the Raiders, who won their fourth straight game to improve to a 12-8 record.
