Liam Connors had 14 points and 10 rebounds to lead Wayne Valley (3-1) past Mendham for the JP Flynn Holiday Tournament championship. Kyle Greve added 12 point, while Nick Guiliano accounted for 9 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists. Nick Goodwin had 4 assists.

"We didn't start the season off very well," head coach Joe Leicht said in reference to an opening night 22 point loss to West Milford. "But we were fortunate the way the schedule broke. We didn't have another game for six days. That gave us a lot of time to get things right. To come down here (Delbarton/Morris County) and to beat two outstanding teams like Delbarton and Mendham says a lot."
