The Patritha Chapter #317 of Wyckoff, NJ completed a perfect sweep to win their second straight Jersey basketball tournament championship. In a repeat of last year’s final, Wyckoff matched up against the Karpathos team of Jersey City. Wyckoff relied on the scoring duo of Kirk Likakis (28) and C.J. Tahinos (14) to out-score their opponents 55-37. In addition, Wyckoff’s strong interior defense swatted away several attempts by Karpathos to mount a comeback, despite Levanes Bertos’ 14 points for Karpathos.  Patritha led right from the start to claim their championship.
