Zach Dugas' three-pointer with 20 seconds left and Chris Prescott's 24 points helped ignite the Connecticut Basketball Club to a thrilling 73-71 victory over Mount Vernon in a quarterfinal playoff game at IS8 this morning.

Dugas, who also shared team-high honors with points with 24, buried his big three-pointer after Sherrod Wright had hit his own three-pointer to temporarily give Mount Vernon a rare lead in this contest.

CBC led 18-15 after the first quarter of play. They expanded their advantage to 43-33 at the half. Heading into the fourth quarter, CBC led Mount Vernon, 59-48. And for most of the final quarter, CBC maintained a double digit lead.

However, terrific defensive pressure helped Mount Vernon surge right back into the game, mainly on the strength of Wright's offensive skills. Wright finished the game with 32 points and many of them came in the final quarter.

But the combination of Dugas and Prescott gave CBC the slight edge at the final buzzer. Prescott has already given a commitment to St. Joe's. Chris has had an excellent IS8 Fall League and continues to show he can hit the big shots too when needed.

Dugas attends St. Luke's in Connecticut while Wright is an outstanding and highly regarded underclassman who is in the process of polishing up his individual game. This morning at IS8, all three showed they are quite capable of playing college basketball.

For Mount Vernon, Bob Cimmino's program showed how deep they are. Mount Vernon played without top prospect Kevin Jones, a 6-foot-7 forward who is currently taking a visit to West Virginia.
