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).
  
Lyons’ 54 points was eighth most in program history and the most since Darrell Floyd scored 62 against The Citadel on Jan. 14, 1956.
  
Furman (4-0) led 55-38 at halftime and extended to its largest lead at 97-55 with 4:44 left.
  
Roderick Howell had 17 points for North Greenville.
