The Lions have opened up a five-point lead thanks to the efforts of Brett Younger, who hit two crucial baskets for Archbishop Mitty. However, Aaron Gordon has picked up his fourth foul and is on the bench, so perhaps this is the time for Summit to strike.
The SkyHawks’ senior leaders are doing their thing, with Montigo Alford and Dorian Cason scoring 14 points each thus far.
