Scouting Bethune-Cookman
The Wildcats of Bethune-Cookman College enter Tuesday's game with an overall record of 21-20 after last weekend's three-game sweep of Norfolk State in Daytona Beach.

B-CC has been playing well down the stretch after winning eight of its last 10 games.

The Wildcats have a solid .303 team batting average along with a 4.63 team ERA.
