SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit High School Boys Varsity Basketball Team, falling behind early, could not find a way back into the game, going on to lose at Morristown, 51-38, in a contest where the Hilltoppers did not attempt a free throw.
Summit, now 13-6 on the season, saw their seven-game win streak snapped by the Colonials. Chip Roriston led the Maroon & White with 10 points, while Michael Kaelin and Will Schaffer added eight each. Rohan Walker, one of three Morristown players in double figures, scored a game-high 15 points, with Josh Scott notching 13.
The Hilltoppers fell behind 17-11 in the first quarter and never got closer than seven points the rest of the way. They trailed by 11 at the half, at 30-19, and were behind by 13 heading to the fourth quarter, a stanza the teams played even on the scoreboard.
In addition to not earning a foul shot, Summit also had a rough night from Three Point Land, as they were as cold as the night air outdoors, going 2-14 from behind the arc.
The Hilltoppers have been given the number 10 seed in the Union County Tournament, and will host 15th seeded Hillside at the Main Gym February 13, with tip-off set for 3 p.m.

Despite 11 points from Jack Washburn and eight from Harry Kilkowski, the JV Basketball Team dropped a 54-40 decision to Morristown.
The Freshman Team improved to 16-0 on the season with a 48-42 win over the Colonials. Malcolm Sidebottom scored 19 points, David Axtell had eight, and Sam Cahill had six points for Summit, which was up big in the second half and then had to hold off a late charge by Morristown.
