NCAA Tournament: UNC Wilmington lost, but Devontae Cacok set incredible record

Devontae Cacok had another impressive performance, and set an NCAA record Thursday.

No. 12 seed UNC Wilmington just missed an upset victory over fifth-seeded Virginia on Thursday, and in the processDevontae Cacok set an NCAA record.

He came into the game making 79.9 percent of his shots, and finished the game going 5 of 6 from the field making his season total a clean80.0 percent. This sets theDivision I record for best field goal percentage in a single season.

The sophomore forward averaged 12.3 points per game and did all of his damage from within the 3-point line. He didn't have a single 3-point attempt as he relied heavily on dunks, which he showed off in Thursday's game.

Cacok's record took over the previous spot of 74.6 percent held by Oregon State's Steve Johnson in 1980-81.

While Cacok wasn't a prolific scorer, his 80 percent from the field is still a pretty impressive mark.
