While senior captain Chip Roriston returned to the lineup, Summit was still without classmate and fellow captain Will Schaffer due to injury, and was unable to get the 'W' in regulation. Tied at 50, Hillside edged the overtime session by a bucket.

Ta'kier Hill led the Comets with 13 points, and Hillside claimed the rebounding battle 28-20.
