Seward County Community College sophomore, Michael Tyree, broke the men's basketball all-time record for three-point field goals in a single game in the Saints 114-83 victory, over Clarendon College on Saturday night at the Green House. The Saints cruised in their 31 point blowout over the Bulldogs, in the second day of competition at the SCCC Wendy's Classic. Seward County led from the beginning of the game with their largest lead coming in the second half with 10:08 remaining in the game (88-48). Seward County improves to 5-1 overall this season.


Tyree broke the all-time single-game record for three-point field goals which was previously set at seven by four former SCCC players. Tyree scored 24 points on 8-of-12 shooting from three-point range with two steals and two assists. The 5-foot-11-inch long range specialists from Somerset, New Jersey, just about tied the all-time record in the first-half hitting six three-point field goals on 6-of-7 shooting from three-point land.

The four Saints who previously shared the single-game three-point record with seven in a game were Keoni Watson (2003-2004), Donell Allick (2002-2003, twice), Rashon Mickens (1995-1996) and James Sutton (1992-1993). Tyree will make a push this season to become the all-time single-season and career three-point leader. This season, Tyree has made 25 three-point field goals (4.17 per game), and for his SCCC career, Tyree improves his total to 78. The all-time single-season record is 97 by Rashon Mickens (1996-1997) and the career record is 159, by Carol Walton (1993-1995).
