The winners of the first session meet in the semifinals at South Brunswick High School Tuesday evening at 5:30 pm, while the second session winners will play at 7.  Both games can be heard on WCTC. WCTC also will broadcast the GMC Finals, starting at 7 pm when we joing the girls' final in progress.  Then at 8, it's the boys' final, though we'll cut away for Rutgers-Purdue in Big Ten action live from West Lafayette, Indiana, with updates through the conclusion of the boys' final, and a recap complete with postgame reaction at halftime of the Rutgers game.
