SUMMIT, NJ - A week ago, Chip Roriston accidentally sliced his finger, the wound requiring stitches and taking him out of the lineup for a few games. Now back on the floor for the Hilltoppers, the senior captain sliced through Governor Livingston for a career-high 24 points as Summit dismantled the Highlanders on their own floor, winning 72-43.

Sophomores Finbar McCormick and Malcolm Sidebottom added 13 and 11 points, respectively, as The Maroon & White built a commanding 41-23 first-half advantage and cruised home from there.

The victory levels Summit's record at 9-9 on the season.

The Hilltopers claimed both the first and second quarters by nine-point margins, scoring 42 points in the half, and then put up 31 more for good measure in the final 16 minutes. The 72 points are a season-high for Summit, eclipsing by a single-point the 71 they totaled in defeating Koinonia Academy on January 7.

Roriston was 11-for-12 from the charity stripe and grabbed nine rebounds, barely missing a double-double. His previous career-high of 22 also came in the January win against Koinonia.

Summit stays on the road next traveling to AL Johnson February 4 for a 1 p.m. tip-off.
