Summit Boys Basketball Overwhelms David Brearley 67-27

February 1, 2014 at 3:40 PM

SUMMIT, NJ - In a game that was decided midway through the first quarter, the Summit Boys Varsity Basketball team easily defeated David Brearley 67-27 at the High School gym.

Kyle Crotty, one of 13 Hilltoppers to get on the score sheet, led Summit with 10 points.  Head Coach Jim Davidson went to his bench early and often in a contest that saw Summit lead after the first quarter 33-2.
The lopsided margin held throughout as Summit, now 12-1 on the season, lead at the half 46-11, and 57-22 at the end of the third quarter.  The Hilltoppers combination of swarming defense and transitional offense were too much for the Bears, whom Summit had defeated 63-38 earlier this week on the road.
Afterwards, Davidson reflected on his team's development and the road ahead.  "We have some tough games coming up," he said, citing away games versus New Providence, Roselle Park, and a home matchup against Oratory Prep.  "We also have some tough non-division opponents on the schedule like Cranford, Hanover Park and West Essex."

"Give credit to the kids," Davidson noted.  "We have been able to get a couple of offensive sets into our system, we do good job defensively, and our rebounding has improved.  In particular, our first eight players have a good understanding of what we are trying to do."
Next up for Summit is a road trip to Roselle Park February 3, followed by away games versus Cranford and A.L. Johnson February 4 and 7, respectively.  The Hilltoppers next home game is February 11 against Oratory Prep, a 7 p.m. tip.
In the JV game, Paul Flanagan had 10 points to pace the Hilltoppers to a 51-20 win, improving the JV's record to 10-2.
