Summit Boys' Basketball Team Falls To Dayton, 49-48

Hilltoppers winning streak comes to an end after a close game with Jonathan Dayton in Springfield Thursday night.

The Summit and Jonathan Dayton boys’ basketball teams collided in Springfield Thursday night and unfortunately, the Hilltoppers did not come out on top.

After a heartbreaking 49-48 loss at the buzzer, Dayton advances to 8-0, while Summit is now 7-1.

“We didn’t shoot very well tonight. We usually shoot better than that, make the most of our opportunities,” said Summit Head Coach David White. “We had foul trouble and that hurt us.”

Despite the loss, #3 Ba’Shawn Mickens racked up 26 points, the most for the Hilltoppers, while #25 Ryan Sweeney scored 11 points.

Both teams were neck-and-neck for most of the game. The outcome came down to the difference of 3 points during the last six seconds of the fourth period. The Hilltoppers answered with a 2-point shot as the clock ran out. 

“No coach is comfortable playing in that position; I’d rather be playing up,” White said. “But to their credit, they made their free throws when they needed to, missed a few down the end. We had way too many turnovers in the first quarter. Hopefully it’s the kind of game where we don’t play like this again and we play how we’re used to playing.”

The Hilltoppers won’t catch a break today either, as they head to A.L. Johnson for a 7 p.m. game.
