* Sam Prescott poured in a career high 44 points to lead the Mount to an 84-70 win over Northeast Conference leader Bryant on Thursday night at Knott Arena.  Prescott scored 28 of his 44 points in the first half as the Mount led 42-28 at the break.  He was 10-of-14 from three-point range, matching the school record for three-pointers made in a game.  Kelvin Parker added 19 points and six rebounds in the victory while Julian Norfleet dished out a career-high 11 assists.  The Mountaineers shot 50.9 percent overall and had 22 assists with just six turnovers in the game.

* Prescott's 44 points were the most by a Mount player since Mike Tate scored 44 against Kutztown State on Nov. 24, 1987.  The 44-point effort set a school mark for most points by a Mount player during the Division I era (since 1988-89).  He is just the fourth player in school history to score 44 or more in a game, joining Jack Sullivan (7 times), Dave Maloney and Tate.

* Mount St. Mary's made a school-record 17 three-pointers in the win over Bryant.  Over the past two home games, the Mount is 30-for-59 (.508) from three-point range.

* Sophomore Kelvin Parker scored a season-high 19 points in the Mount's win against Bryant.  Parker hit 5-of-7 from three-point range in the game while adding six rebounds.  Parker is averaging 12.0 points over the past three games.
