Jan 04, 2012
Summit Academy pulled away from Shenango in the second half of a showdown between the top two teams in Section 2-AA.

The visiting Wildcats, who led by four after one quarter, endured a rough second and third quarters. They trailed 36-33 at halftime and were outscored 21-12 in the third period.

“I thought we did a real nice job in the first half of taking care of the basketball and making plays,” Shenango coach Bob McQuiston said. “They went on a run in the second quarter, and we got in a track meet with them, and we didn’t want to run with them.

“In the second half, we had a lot of turnovers, and once they extended the lead, we had to get away from our game plan.”

The Knights (2-0, 4-3) finished off Shenango (2-1, 7-3) with a 22-17 advantage in the final frame. Elijah Minnie contributed a game-high 27 points for Summit Academy, while Omar Johnson provided 18.
