Already responsible for the biggest shot in school history with the game-winning 3-pointer in last season’s NJSIAA Group IV final, Jackson Memorial senior guard Hannah Missry became the school’s most prolific scorer on Saturday afternoon.

She finished with a game-high 26 points and the Jaguars (13-3) downed Colts Neck, 48-33, in a nondivisional game.
Jackson Memorial outscored the Cougars (8-8), 26-11, during the second and third quarters to take control.

After the trey, Iozzia stole the ball on the other end, was fouled and hit one of two free throws to ice the game and finish with a team-high 16 points.
