East Brunswick, No. 11 in The Star-Ledger Top 20, was awarded the top seed for the Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament, which gets under way Monday with six games in the Play-In Round at the higher seed.
Monroe, which needs a win on Saturday over North Brunswick to clinch the White Division title, was a surprise No. 2 pick over Edison, which is ranked No. 8 in the state. An Edison win over Old Bridge yesterday would have clinched a tie with East Brunswick for the Red Division title. East Brunswick and Edison split this season.
