NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) Sam Prescott scored 19 points and Mount St. Mary's overcame a 15-point deficit at the half to beat Central Connecticut State 87-76 on Thursday.

Mount St. Mary's (11-14, 7-5 Northeast) went 23 of 25 at the line and outscored Central Connecticut (9-17, 5-8) 57-31 in the second half.
