On Thursday, November 15, former McIntosh guard and current Furman basketball star Jordan Lyons tied the NCAA record having made 15 three-pointers as part of a 54-point performance in a 107-67 victory for the Paladins.

Lyons was renowned at McIntosh for his natural scoring ability, averaging nearly 20 points in his senior season in 2015-16. At Furman, he is currently averaging 25 points per game on the season, a number no doubt boosted by his incredible performance Thursday.

Lyons, whose brother Cam currently plays on the McIntosh varsity squad, also set an NCAA record in three-point attempts with 34 during the shooting clinic. It was by far his college career high and garnered recognition from well-known sports news shows such as SportsCenter.

“It’s an unbelievable night,” Lyons said, per Greenville Online. “It’s an unbelievable feeling.”

Lyons will follow up his legendary performance as the Paladins hit the road on Saturday, November 17 for a tough matchup against the defending national champion Villanova Wildcats.
