DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Mikel Trapp scored a career-high 33 points to lead Bethune-Cookman’s record shooting night in Monday’s 91-59 victory over South Carolina State.

The Wildcats set school records in shooting 70.7 from the field (29-41) and hitting 15 of 18 from three-point range, putting them alongside BYU and Manhattan for the nation’s best single-game three-point shooting percentage. BYU went 10-12 against Texas on November 25, and Manhattan was 10-12 against Columbia on November 12.

Trapp, who was scoreless when the teams met January 20,  was nearly perfect shooting, making 9 of 10 from the field, 7 of 7 from 3-point range and 8 of 9 from the free throw line.

Trapp’s perfect night from three-point range was also a school record, and tied him with UNC’s Nicholas Paulos (9-9) and Texas Tech’s Dusty Hannah (7-7) for best three-point shooting night in the nation this year.

Bethune-Cookman (5-20, 3-7 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) used a 22-4 run, during which the team hit four 3-pointers, to open up a 24-9 lead with about 9 minutes to play in the first half.

A 3-pointer by Trapp nearly 2 1/2 minutes later sparked 13-0 spurt, extending the Bethune-Cookman advantage to 26 with just fewer than 4 minutes before the break.

BCU took a 48-22 lead into halftime and led by 36 twice in the second half, 74-38 on two Tony Kynard free throws with 9:11 and 77-41 on a Clemmye Owens three-pointer with 8:23 left.

Trapp was nearly perfect shooting, making 9 of 10 from the field, 7 of 7 from 3-point range and 8 of 9 from the free throw line.

Malik Jackson added 19 points and Kynard finished with 10 points and five assists. All eight Wildcats scored.

Jordan Smith paced SCSU (8-14, 4-5) with 10 points.

B-CU travels to North Carolina Central Saturday.

 

NOTES: Trapp's 33 points tied him with Syracuse's Trevor Cooney for the national high Monday night ... The team's 70.7 field goal percentage was the nation's fifth-best of the season ... The seven three-pointers puts Trapp with Antonio Webb and Clifford Reed at sixth on the single-game three-pointer list ... The 32 point margin of victory was the largest in a MEAC game in the Gravelle Craig era ... B-CU has now won three of its last four ... Jackson has been in double figures five straight games.
