EMMITSBURG, Md. (AP) -- Rashad Whack scored 20 points and Mount St. Mary's overcame a slight halftime deficit to beat Hartford 70-63 Tuesday night in non-conference action.

The Mountaineers (1-1), who lost to Pitt 80-48 in their season opener, trailed Hartford (0-2) 35-32 at halftime. But behind the shooting of Whack (7 of 10, 4 of 6 on 3-pointers), Julian Norfleet (10) and Sam Prescott off the bench, Mount St. Mary's outscored Hartford 38-28 in the second half.

Trailing 53-48, the Mountaineers scored 12 points in a row down the stretch, including 3-pointers by Shivaughn Wiggins and Whack. Prescott, who scored 12 points, including two 3-pointers, also scored four straight points in that critical 12-point run.

Hartford got as close as 62-60 with 1:59 left, but Josh Castellanos went 4-for-4 from the foul line down the stretch.

Mark Nwakamma led Hartford with 21 points. Yolonzo Moore II added 15 and Evan Cooper 14.
