The Summit boys basketball team saw its season come to an end on Friday night, as the Jaguars lost to Dallas Kimball by a score of 69-60 at the Curtis Culwell Center.

The Jaguars advanced four rounds in the postseason before losing in the regional semifinals, after a 9-5 district mark and third place finish in 15-4A competition.

In the game against Kimball, the Jags were led in scoring by Terrance Hubby, who finished the game with 21 points, while Keilyn Nance added 14 points in the game for Summit.

Corinthian Ramsey scored 11 points in the game for the Jaguars and Lovell Cabbil added 10 points.

Phillip Hollis and Vernon Scott combined for four points in the game for Summit.

“I’m proud of them for hanging in there,” Summit coach Jason Mutterer told the Star-Telegram. “We cut the lead twice to seven, and six points a couple of times but just didn’t have the staying power.

“We just weren’t able to play as aggressively on defense because of the foul trouble, but we also allowed them too many lob chances at the basket, and that led to a lot of dunks,” Mutterer said.

Things did not look that promising as the postseason started for Summit, having dropped two of its final three regular season games.

Summit would square off with Lindale in the opening round of the playoffs and quickly silence any doubters, cruising to a 71-43 victory in Kaufman.

Ramsey led the team in scoring that night with 23 points in the game for Summit.

The Jaguars would travel to Longview for the area round game against Texarkana High School, where it would pick up another double-digit victory, defeating Texarkana by a score of 75-65 to qualify for the regional quarterfinals.

Hubby led the team in scoring with 25 points, and Ramsey added 22 points in the area round victory.

In the regional quarterfinals, Summit would take on its old district and school district rival Lake Ridge in an all Mansfield playoff contest, and the teams’ third meeting of the season.

Summit would earn a 60-49 victory against the Eagles, this time with Cabbil leading the way with 22 points in the game for the Jaguars.

Summit wrapped up the season with a record of 20-11.
