SUMMIT, NJ - Down just three points at the half, the Summit High School Girls Basketball Team was outscored 17-5 in the third quarter, a differential that proved decisive in a 50-32 defeat at the hands of Westfield at the Main Gym.

Freshman Kiran McCormick led the Hilltoppers with 10 points, but no other Summit player reached double figures. In addition, he Maroon and White were without Annabella Yorio, who missed the game due to illness.

The defeat snapped a four-game Hilltopper winning streak and sets their season record at 10-7.

Samantha Stravach and Molly Ryan paced the Blue Devils with 16 and 13 points, respectively.

A tight first quarter produced a baseball-like 4-3 score in favor of the visitors then, by comparison, the teams went points nutty in the second, with Summit scoring nearly half their nightly total output -- 15 -- only to be outdone by a bucket by the visitors in blue.

Down 21-18, Summit's offense couldn't produce and the Blue Devils just kept on keepin' on and, when the frame ended, the result was pretty much decided. A few minutes into the fourth quarter, both teams made multiple substitutions and the game rolled to its conclusion.

Summit stays home to face AL Johnson February 8. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.

Boys Get Solid Road Win Against The Rams

ROSELLE, NJ - After allowing 21 points and trailing by seven after eight minutes of play, the Summit High School Boys Varsity Basketball Team turned the tables and outscored Roselle 21-12 in the second quarter, then sustained the scoreboard flip over the final 16 minutes of hoop to edge the Rams, 63-60.

This win is the third in a row and another slow and steady step on Summit's march to a stellar season -- a campaign slate now improved to 14-3.

Junior captains Malcolm Sidebottom and Dom Yorio led Summit with 20 and 17 points, respectively, and sophomore Eric Baier added 13. Roselle was paced by Isaiah Chase's 22 and James Alderman's 18.

Summit returns home to play the opener of a rare afternoon / night home doubleheader of hoops, taking on AL Johnson February 8 at 4 p.m. The Hilltopper Girls then play the Crusaders -- also in the Main Gym -- at 7 p.m.

Mr. Market is convinced the FAANGs are impervious to a sell-off. “Its different this time” is ringing loud and clear, but will the outcome really be that ...
