SOUTH JAMAICA, NEW YORK -- Chris Prescott put on a shooting display in the second half to lift the Connecticut Basketball Club to a playoff victory over Starrett City, 66-60, in the IS8 Fall League.

The Connecticut Basketball Club advanced to next week's quarterfinals against a still to be determined opponent.

Prescott, who is already committed to St. Joe's, scored 11 second half points, many of them at key times in the final quarter. He finished the game with a game-high 22 points which included three three-pointers.

The first quarter ended at 16-16. Connecticut grabbed a two-point advantage to start the third quarter at 30-28. However, Starrett City regained the lead at 48-46 to start the fourth quarter.

Prescott wasn't the only member of the CBC that made a significant contribution to the playoff win. B.J. Montaro scored 14 and Stan Dulaire added 12 points in the victory.

For Starrett City, James Padgett scored 15 points while Lyloyd Antione added 14 points. Guard Devon Davis pitched in with 12 points for the very competitive Starrett City team.

But, in today's playoff game, the valuable perimeter game of Prescott was important in helping the Connecticut Basketball Club forge a victory.
