SAVANNAH, Ga. - Kevin Dukes goes for his 1,000th career point as Bethune-Cookman faces defending Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference regular season champ Savannah State Monday in an ESPNU televised contest.

The senior scored 15 points Saturday against South Carolina State, giving him 998 for his career. His next field goal, or two free throws, will make him B-CU's 26th 1,000 point scorer.

TV TIME: B-CU will make its third ESPN platform in the past eight months when it faces Savannah State. The Wildcats' game at Pittsburgh on 12/15/12 was an ESPN3 offering, and B-CU appeared on ESPN2 when it faced Norfolk State in the 2012 MEAC tourna-ment championship game. B-CU's last regular season appearance on ESPNU - and televised victory for that matter - was January 10, 2011 at North Carolina A&T, where B-CU won 72-69. B-CU also appeared on ESPN2 when it faced Virginia Tech in the 2011 NIT.


Series: B-CU leads 25-17

Last Year: Split. B-CU won at home 68-62 on January 16 while the Tigers took a 67-44 decision on February 20 in Savannah.

REUNION: SSU Coach Horace Broadnax coached at B-CU from 1997-2002. In three seasons, the Wildcats went from 1-26 overall to 14-15 overall and 12-6 in MEAC play with a berth in the 2000 semifinals.
