LORETTO, Pa. -- Sam Prescott had a season-high 25 points with a big 3-pointer in the final minute to lift Mount St. Mary's over St. Francis (Pa.) 83-77 on Thursday night.
The Mount (7-11, 3-2 Northeast Conference) was leading 74-71 when Prescott nailed a 3 as the shot clock expired to extend the Mountaineers lead to six with 40 seconds left.
The Red Flash cut the deficit to four on three separate occasions, but the Mount answered each time by making both of its free throws.
DeSean Murray, who averaged 20.2 points as a sophomore at Presbyterian, will transfer to Auburn to play for coach Bruce Pearl.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
