EMMITSBURG, Md. -- Sam Prescott scored 44 points, nearly five times more than his season average of 9.2 per game, to lead Mount St. Mary's past Bryant 84-70 Thursday night.

The junior guard, who transferred from Marist, where his high was 34 points, made 10 of 14 3-pointers, tying the school record for 3s in a game accomplished twice by Scott Murphy. Julian Norfleet added 11 assists.

Prescott's total was the most for the Mountaineers (11-13, 6-7 Northeast Conference) since they moved to Division I in the 1988-89 season, and their highest since Mike Tate scored 44 against Kutztown State the previous season. Jack Sullivan set the school record of 55 points in 1957.

Prescott had 28 first-half points as Mount St. Mary's took a 42-28 lead. He scored 16, his previous season-high, when the Mountaineers lost 79-78 to Bryant (16-7, 9-3) in overtime on Jan. 17.

Alex Francis' 25 points led Bryant.
