Size could mean the difference for Prospect
The one thing the Prospect Mountain boys basketball team has had in almost every contest this season is size.
And that valuable asset could be the difference in its quarterfinal game Saturday.
The sixth-seeded T'wolves hit the road to play No. 3 Campbell in Litchfield at 2 p.m. Campbell won both matchups against Prospect this season, but the Cougars had to work a bit harder in the rematch — a 58-53 overtime win at home on Valentine's Day.
If Prospect is to win Saturday, it will need to make sure its big three — Logan Roberts, Austin Perrin and Jay Mousseau — play like they did Wednesday.
Roberts, Perrin and Mousseau — all junior forwards — combined for 37 points against No. 11 Franklin in the first round of the Division III playoffs. Senior guard Zach Drouin tossed in his run-of-the-mill 24 points to cruise past the Golden Tornadoes, 70-46.
Prospect coach Tom Bourdeau said Wednesday's win was pretty much perfect.
"Just what we did tonight," Bourdeau said of how to beat Campbell. "Don’t change a thing."
