SUMMIT, NJ - Slow out of the blocks, the Summit High School Boys Varsity basketball team fell behind by double digits early, and never recovered, falling 64-49 at Governor Livingston.  Rob Imbalzano had 18 points for Governor Livingston (GL), while Jordan Gonzalez led Summit with 12, and Will Schaffer added eight.

The Hilltoppers were unable to find the basket in the opening eight minutes, scoring a scant five points in the quarter while allowing GL to find success underneath the hoop and from the perimeter.  Summit was down 17-5 at the end of the first quarter.
Summit brought increased tempo and intensity in the second quarter and was rewarded.  A steal by Dan Montgomery that led to a Gonzalez lay-up just before the half ended got the lead under 10 at 33-24.
The Hilltoppers came out swarming and flying around the court at the onset of the second half, and cut the lead to 33-29 just two minutes into the third quarter.  The Highlanders, however, broke the game wide open again, going on an 18-4 run over the next eight minutes to essentially settle the outcome.

Trailing 51-33 in the fourth, Summit's aggressive defense began to yield turnovers, and the lead dipped to 10 points at 52-42.   But just two minutes remained, and the Highlanders hit their free  throws and saw the game out.
"We dug a hole early -- and GL helped put us there -- and you never want to begin a journey uphill," said Summit Head Coach Dan Healy.  "We knew GL was a great half-court team, and we knew their sets, but we had some lapses and allowed them to take the game to us."
JV Win, Freshman Defeated
The Hilltopper JV Basketball Team won a thriller, defeating GL 43-37 in in Double Overtime behind 20 points from Jaden Jackson.  The Freshman lost to the Highlanders 44-30.
