Hilltoppers fall to Ridge, 65-54

Summit traveled to Ridge for a 1pm tip on Saturday. From a fan perspective, Ridge has one of the nicest gyms I’ve traveled to all year – spacious with great natural light. Rhett Grieco and Joaquin Russell suited up for this one – great to see them back in the lineup after being sidelined for […]

Sparta edges Summit in defensive battle, 38-33

I wasn’t able to make the drive up to Sparta – all of this is speculation based on the stats (https://highschoolsports.nj.com/game/696369). If you went to the game and are willing to contribute, please get in touch with me! Points were tough to come by in this one. The teams barely broke into double figures by […]

Hilltoppers edge Rahway, 50-45

Summit traveled to Rahway for an earlier-than-usual 4pm tipoff. I arrived slightly late and the Hilltoppers had already built a solid 8-2 lead. But Summit shooting went cold, letting Rahway mount a 7-1 run to take a 9-8 lead into the second quarter. Throughout the season, Summit has struggled with teams that can generate lots […]

Hilltoppers fight but fall to SPF, 67-61

Summit won’t want to watch the game tape from the first quarter. Scotch Plains-Fanwood jumped all over the Hilltoppers from the opening tip and didn’t let them breathe. Within 2 minutes, the Raiders opened up an 8-0 lead. Their aggressive half court defense and fast breaking offense created easy bucket after easy bucket. Summit wasn’t […]

Hilltoppers take rematch over Pioneers, 61-47

In their initial matchup, New Providence jumped all over Summit and never let up – resulting in a 20-point loss. But Coach Simo has the Hilltoppers looking much better as of late – and a rematch felt like it would be a good barometer of how far the team has come. With Joaquin Russell and […]

Hillside gets revenge, beats Hilltoppers 64-44

Summit met Hillside in its season opener, an affair that ended in a buzzer beater and court storming. That game must have left a bad taste in the Comets mouth because Hillside took the rematch by 20, beating Summit 64-44. I was unable to attend this game – see https://highschoolsports.nj.com/game/696547 for full game stats. Myles […]

Summit takes down Cranford, 58-45

On paper, it looked like this game could go either way. The teams had faced common opponents in New Providence and Chatham. Chatham, which Summit recently beat convincingly, whooped Cranford. New Providence, which Cranford beat twice convincingly, routed Summit. This was a parents-only game, so I wasn’t able to attend! I’m relying on data from […]
