Furman is on the radar of some college basketball fans, not only for being undefeated and 4–0 but for what Jordan Lyons did earlier this week in a game against DII North Greenville.
Lyons tied an NCAA record with fifteen three-pointers on thirty-four attempts, which is a new record. He finished with fifty-four points in that game. He entered the game shooting nearly thirty-nine percent from three and finished it with a 41.5 percent mark.
He is not Furman’s number-one option on offense, though. Matt Rafftery is a 6’8″ senior forward who averages twenty-two a game with eight rebounds and five assists. Unlike Lyons, he isn’t a threat from outside but he can do it all from a little closer, with good handles for a guy his size and scoring savvy. Clearly, he isn’t averse to share the ball, either.
Furman’s most impressive win came at Loyola-Chicago, last year’s NCAA Tournament darlings. The Paladins won that game on a last-second backdoor cut and dunk.
Meanwhile, Villanova, after rolling its first two opponents, was squashed at home by Michigan in a rematch of last year’s NCAA Tournament championship game, 73–46.
Eric Paschall was the only Wildcat in double-figures and it took him a bevy of shots to get there. He was horrendously inefficient from the field.
Michigan simply beat ‘Nova one-on-one by playing man-to-man defense and consistently getting to the hole on the other end with drives and dishes for wide-open shots. It looked nothing like a Villanova team we’ve seen anytime lately.
