After suffering its first defeat of the season last week, Summit Academy bounced back Tuesday night in resounding fashion.

The host Dragons (7-1, 2-1 Charter School League) took on Dearborn Heights Star International Academy and hammered the Falcons (2-4, 0-3 CSL) 62-23 in a league battle.

Leavohn Lewis played point guard in the absence of standout Cory Hicks and scored a team-high 17 points for Summit and grabbed one rebound.

Lewis said he knew exactly how big it was for him to take on the leadership role on the floor Tuesday night.

“It was pretty important,” he said. “We need that guard to step up and make plays.”

Also hitting double figures for the Dragons was Christian Flannigan, who came away with 14 points.

Randle Micheaux led the hosts in rebounds, as pulled down 14 and both Blake Horvath and Donavan Presbery had six boards each in the game. Micheaux also scored nine points and teammate Abu Hamilton put up six.

Summit jumped on the visitors right away and after one quarter the home team was already up 15-3, which was helped out by six points from Lewis and four from Flannigan.

In the second quarter, the Dragons continued to dominate and it was a 28-10 game going into the break.

To put it away in the second half, Summit outscored the visitors 17-6 in the third quarter and 17-7 in the final eight minutes.

Flannigan netted eight second-half points, while Lewis scored seven and Hamilton picked up all six of his points in the second half.

Also scoring points in the contest were London Carrington, Craig Sharp and Jesse Brown.

One thing Summit Coach Craig Lewis was not happy with Tuesday night was that his squad missed several easy shots right after making big plays on defense.

“I think they played good, just in transition we didn’t make the layups like we should have,” he said. “We missed like 30 layups which is kind of bad. When we play a better team it’s going to hurt us.”

Once that issue is corrected, however, Lewis said the Dragons could be unstoppable.

“We steal the ball, we play good defense. If we capitalize on those steals nobody’s going to be able to touch us.”

Next up for Summit is a makeup game tomorrow night at home against Southfield Bradford Academy.
