EMMITSBURG, Md. (AP) — Rashad Whack scored 22 points and Julian Norfleet added 21 as Mount St. Mary’s defeated Central Connecticut State 89-80 Saturday to sweep their Northeast Conference season series.

The Blue Devils got to within 56-52 with 12:40 left, but Shivaughn Wiggins’ layup and Prescott’s 3-pointer restored a nine-point margin.

Brandon Peel had 13 points and 11 rebounds for CCSU. Matt Hunter also had 13 points.
