York High graduate Kelvin Parker enjoyed his best game of the season on Thursday night.
Unfortunately for Parker, his performance was overshadowed by a historic effort from a teammate.
Parker scored a season-high 19 points for Mount St. Mary's in an 84-70 victory over Northeast Conference leader Bryant in Emmitsburg, Md.
Sam Prescott was the star of the show, however, scoring 44 points, nearly five times more than his season average of 9.2 per game.
Prescott is a 6-foot, 3-inch junior guard who transferred to the Mount from Marist, where his high was 34 points. Thursday, he 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 for the Mount.
Prescott's total was the most for the Mountaineers (11-13, 6-7 NEC) since they moved to NCAA 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.
Parker, meanwhile, was 6-for-8 from the field and 5-for-7 from 3-point range off the bench. He also had six rebounds, two assists and a steal. For the season, the 6-3 sophomore is averaging 4.9 points per game.
Alex Francis' 25 points led Bryant.
