The first round of the 20th annual Roundball Classic Tournament was not kind to Summerville.
Two Summerville teams were unable to hang with a pair of out-of-state teams Thursday.
The Green Wave boys fell 66-48 to Roswell High out of Georgia. Roswell jumped out to a 45-22 lead in the first half and Summerville wasn’t able to cut into the lead much.
“We started out ok and made a little run but then they made a run and I think we panicked a bit and got tight,” Summerville coach Greg Elliott said. “They are a very good team and they were able to beat every defense we threw at them. We turned the ball over 20 times and they outrebounded us by 14.”
Two players accounted for more than half of Summerville’s points. Junior Christian Kalacanic led the Wave with 20 points and senior Brandon Wilkerson finished with 11 points. Summerville’s record dropped to 7-3 with the loss.
The Pinewood boys (6-5) didn’t fare any better as they fell 80-34 to Charlotte Christian School (8-4) in the first round. The North Carolina team dominated the first half to take a 51-11 lead and never took its foot off the gas.
Charlotte Christian hit 13 of 20 shots from three-point range and made 58.5 percent of its other shots from the floor. Pinewood did a good job rebounding, but was only 4-of-20 from three-point range and 13-of-47 from two-point range.
Charlotte Christian’s Matthew Fisher-Davis hit five of his six shots from behind the arc and finished with a game-high 26 points. Teammate Patrick Rooks made seven three-pointers and finished with 25 points.
Ryan Felder led the Panthers in scoring with 13 points and rebounding with seven. Corbin Landers finished with seven points. He, Reid Radebaugh, JD Waite and Jimmy Thomas all sank a 3 for Pinewood.
Play for the prestigious tournament continued Friday after press time.
