May breaks scoring mark

The 6-9 UNC signee scored 22 points in a 104-34 rout over Graceland Christian on Saturday and became Monroe County's career scoring leader in the process.

May, who now has 1,550 points, broke current Tar Heels player Jon Holmes' mark. Holmes scored 1,536 points in his career while at Bloomington South from 1996-99.

May also set the school mark last week, breaking Duany Duany's record of 1,532 points.

South had lost two consecutive games – the team's only losses of the season – prior to the rout over Graceland. The Cougars are now 19-2 this season.

May broke Holmes' mark late in the first quarter on a 10-footer in the paint.

"It was sometime during my sophomore year that I was made aware that I could set that record if I stayed healthy and kept playing at a certain level," May told the Bloomington Times. "so that became a goal of mine, but I would never elevate a personal goal over any of our team goals, and I'm glad we played better tonight.

"I felt it was very important that we bounce back well (from Friday's 60-50 loss at Columbus East). Errek (Suhr), John Allman and I felt really bad about last night, as captains, and we talked with the guys and it was good. I think it showed."
