    Sophomore guard Corey Brister drained a three-point basket as time expired to send the Eagles into the win column with a 71-70 victory over Pearl River. MCC trailed PRCC 70-68 with just ten second remaining on the clock and MCC drove the length of the floor to try and set things up for the final shot.

    The Eagles were able to move the ball around to Brister in the far right corner with just under a second remaining in the game.

     Brister put the final shot of the game up in the air and the prayer was answered for the Eagles to defeat the Wildcats 71-70.
