Three in A Row; Mount over 500
The Mount made 14 three-pointers in a 72-65 win over Navy at a raucous Knott Arena Friday. Rashad Whack knocked down 6 of the troikas and Sam Prescott had 4.
The Mount built a 17-point lead over Navy, which had beaten NEC foe Monmouth on Wednesday. But saw just about all of the advantage slip away. But with a two-point lead Whack buried a three, the Mayhem pressure forced a turnover, and Prescott hit his final three of the night. Good Morning. Good Afternoon. Good Night.
Whack led the Mounties with 18.
The Mount had won three straight non-conference games only twice since 2003. The 2003 streak started with a win over an A-10 school, Duquesne when Jamion Christian tossed in 20.
I'll have more thoughts tomorrow as Loyola Week begins.
