Bulldogs bitten by big performance

Friday, February 15, 2013

 

Every once in awhile, you have to hand it to the other guy.

In this case, Mt. St. Mary's Sam Prescott was the other guy.  And he deserves a big hand.  Prescott scored a career high 44 points Thursday night to lead his team to an 84-70 win over Bryant in Emmitsburg, MD.

The defeat snaps a three game winning streak for Bryant, now 16-7 overall and 9-3 in the Northeast Conference.  

Prescott was the story throughout, as the junior poured in 28 first-half points to give The Mount a first-half lead it would not relinquish. He followed that with a 16-point second half to help the Mountaineers finally pull away from a pesky Bulldog side. Kelvin Parker was the only other Mountaineer in double-figures, as he finished with 19 points. Prescott finished 16-of-24 from the field and 10-of-14 from beyond the arc. Backed by his 10 "3s", the Mountaineers shot 17-of-33 from beyond the arc.

Alex Francis led the Bulldogs with his sixth double-double effort of the season, scoring 25 points and pulling down 10 rebounds.  Despite the loss, Bryant remains in a first-place tie with Robert Morris in the NEC.  The Bulldogs will travel to Staten Island, NY on Saturday to face Wagner in a 4:00 pm tip-off.
