    The Blues are going dancing again.  
    The Brookdale men’s basketball team capped off one of their best seasons in school history Saturday night with a victory in the NJCAA Region XIX Division III Championship Game at Collins Arena. 
   The victory marks the second consecutive season that Brookdale has won the Regional Championship.
   The team capped off the season finishing with a 30-1 record by defeating the top seeded Northampton Spartans of the Eastern Pennsylvania Athletic Conference by a score of 89-59. 
  Brookdale head coach Paul Cisek, who was named coach of the year for the second consecutive season, could not have been more proud of his team.
   “To win back-to-back championships is an unbelievable feeling,” Cisek said after the game. “It can’t get any better than this. We’re going to enjoy this one.”
   The Blues had a halftime lead of 46-36, but pulled away by outscoring the WORTH ATTENDINGNJCU at BROOKDALE OPEN HOUSE Tuesday, March 26, 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. Worth It.Application fee is waived for open house attendees. See all that NJCU at Brookdale has to offer.

 Freshman David Rosado was named the MVP, finishing with 22 points, while freshman Joe Nickerson led the team with 23 points. 
   But coach Cisek was particularly satisfied with the performance of another player.
  “Definitely (sophomore) Neil Thompson,” Cisek said when asked if he could pick one player that was the key to this team. “He was the player of the year, and he played sick all week. But he’s our leader, and he came up big for us.”
   By winning the championship, Brookdale has earned a spot in the NJCAA National Tournament at Sullivan County Community College in Loch Sheldrake, NY, which begins on  March 14.
