Niles North tops Prospect; last-second bucket sinks Chargers

By

Niles North, runner-up in the recent Hardwood Classic at Wheeling, was too much for visiting Prospect in nonconference play Tuesday.

Prospect (11-6) was led by 13 points from Mike Houghton.

Harvest Christian 49, Christian Liberty 48: Wesley Swiderek scored a game-high 20 points but the Chargers came up 1 point short against visiting Harvest Christian on Tuesday.
