VIDEO: Highlights and reaction to Mount's win at Salesianum.
Mount Pleasant defeated Salesianum 48-27 before a packed house Saturday night in a battle of top contenders.

With standout freshman KVonn Cramer out with an illness, Mount's offense struggled to a slow start. The Green Knight defense kept the game close, and senior Raheim Burnett buried a 3-pointer to close out the first to give the visitors a 9-7 lead.

The score remained close early in the second until Mount's offense erupted for a 9-0 run. Their lead would stretch to as many as 8 in the first half.

Just as it appeared Mount (14-3) had full control, Salesianum guard Mike Kempski hit back-to-back 3-pointers to cut the Mount lead to 1.

With time running down in the half, a 3 from Keon Taylor gave the Green Knights a 7-point lead and all of the momentum going into the break.

After a slow third quarter, Mount's defense clamped down in the fourth. Salesianum (7-6) struggled to get off any uncontested shots, and went 0-for-5 from the foul line in the final period. Mount would outscore the Sals 14-0 in the fourth quarter leading to their fifth 20-point win of the season.

Salesianum struggled from the foul line, converting just 5-of-18 from the charity stripe.

Burnett led all scorers for Mount with 17 points, Sharif Holland joined Burnett in double-figures with 10. Mike Kempski led Salesianum with 8 points.

Mount Pleasant's next test will be 13-2 William Penn at home Tuesday at 5:30pm. Salesianum will stay at home for a big match-up with number 1 ranked Sanford Monday at 7:30pm - that game will be broadcast live on WDEL.
