GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) Jordan Lyons became the second player in two nights to tie an NCAA record with 15 3-pointers and scored a career-high 54 points to help Furman beat Division II North Greenville 107-67 on Thursday night.

Lyons' 3-pointer with 3:09 left matched the nearly 22-year-old record set by Keith Veney of Marshall on Dec. 14, 1996. Josh Williams also hit 15 3-pointers in Robert Morris' 104-57 win over Mount Aloysius on Wednesday night.

Lyons tied the record on his 29th attempt and missed his final five 3-point shots to set the record for 3-point attempts (34), passing Bruce Seals of Manhattan (27; Jan. 31, 2000).
