EAU CLAIRE - Elk Mound proved to be too long and too tough for Prescott High School's boys basketball team to handle. The Mounders won the WIAA Division 3 Eau Claire North Sectional Tournament Saturday afternoon by a 47-36 score.

PHS used outside shooting from Michael Brookshaw to go in front after the first quarter 12-9. But the No. 3 ranked Mounders, 24-1 overall, went on a 7-0 run to take a 16-12 lead. Prescott tied the game at 16-16 and that was as close as they would come again. EM took a 20-16 lead at hafltime and led by over 11 points in the second half.

Prescott concludes its season with a regional title, a school-first Middle Border Conference title in boys basketball and a 21-4 overall record. Elk Mound will play No. 2 Lodi (24-1) in the state semifinals Friday at 10:45 a.m. at the Kohl Center in Madison. The Blue Devils beat Marshall 44-43 to win their sectional.
