For the second straight night, Chester had its hands full against a team from the Public League.

And for the second straight night, Karon Burton willed the Clippers to victory.

The senior point guard recorded a double-double, as Chester defeated Strawberry Mansion, 82-76, in last night's Pete Nelson Classic at Widener University's Swartz Center.

The 5-foot-9 point guard shot 8 of 10 from the field to finish with a team high 25 points. He also collected a team-high 10 assists en route to being named Chester's team MVP of the classic.

"I just tried to come out, run the club, run my offense," Burton said.

Strawberry Mansion 17 18 16 25 - 76
