With the Summit gym filled with pink, from the players pre-game warmups to the referee's whistles, the event, sponsored by the girls' basketball program, was a success on the floor for the Hilltoppers.

"This is an important game for both programs because its our 'Hoops 4 Hope.'" Summit boys' head coach David White said. "Coach [Girls' head coach Brian] Erickson kindly asked us to join and it and we're bald to be part of it."

Summit led the game wire-to-wire, dominating Roselle Park in every facet of the game.

"We played really well tonight, moved the ball around," Mickens said. "They tried to make us pick up the tempo, but we stayed calm and poised and just played our game."

The Hilltoppers scored the first eight points of the game, capped by an "and-one" conversion from center Robbie Walsh.

Walsh towered over the whole Roselle Park team, converting all three of his baskets after an offensive rebound, leading Summit to a 17-11 lead after the first quarter.

"We're almost always bigger than everybody we play," White said. "One of the things we talk about is making sure we take advantage of that. Our guards did a good job of looking to get the ball inside and our bigs were able to capitalize on the block."

In the second period, Mickens controlled the floor, sparking an 11-2 run to open the frame.

The senior scored 14 points in the second quarter, including eight of the first 10 points Summit put on the board in the quarter.

The third quarter continued to be the "Mickens Show," scoring the first five Hilltopper points to jump Summit out to a 41-23 lead before giving way to the team's bench.

"Ba'Shawn did what he always does," White said."I think he had scoring 27 points which is basically his average."

Even with the second team on the floor, Summit controlled the pace of the game. In the fourth quarter, Michael Knight put up seven points, including a put-back layup and a free throw, as the Hilltoppers closed out Roselle Park 67-48.

"We're 11-1 and hopefully we can just keep up doing what we're doing," White said.

Summit returns to the floor next Friday when they host Hillside.
