It doesn’t get bigger than this. Tonight, high school powerhouses St. Patrick (Elizabeth, N.J.) and St. Anthony (Jersey City, N.J.) will go head-to-head at the Rutgers Athletic Center. No. 1 vs. No. 2 in New Jersey. No. 1 vs. No. 2 in the nation. Both teams are undefeated, 26-0 and 28-0 respectively, and many people are calling this a de-facto national championship. (As they should.)
