BSC Men's Basketball is 12 and 6 overall this season-- 3 and 0 in conference play.
The Mystics come off a trip to nationals last season-- and this year-- Coach Jason Harris says they are even better.
That's with the help of one of the nations best in points per game-- Jon Schaeffer has the story.
(Jon) In 2011 Malik Wood came to Bismarck State College after not getting any offers to play college basketball until his tape got into the hands of head coach Jason Harris--knowing that the Mystics run and gun style was something Malik could work with.
(Malik)"At BSC here we like to run and gun as they had been doing previous years and in my high school we were more of a pass first pass at least three times before you do something and so when I got here it was perfect ya know it was my style of play and everything just work fine."
(Jon) Well it's working a little better then fine-- The 5'10" point guard has found himself in the top of the Junior College list for average points per game with 22 point 7 putting him in a tie for second in the Nation. For Malik it's a pretty simple formula for success.
(Malik) "My success has just been going hard every play, playing the same going to every single game the same way not getting too excited about each game I just go there and try to play hard and just play my game."
(Jason Harris-BSC Head Coach) "Well you know Malik is one of the premier guards around he does a lot of things for us he scores baskets he gets assists, he gets defensive stops you know he's just a good all around player we are very fortunate to have him come up and play basketball for us at Bismarck State."
His play has helped lead Bismarck State to their 12 and 6 record-- but the goal for the end of the season is to return to the national tournament taking it game by game
(Harris)"The biggest thing is to make sure we come out to compete every game we wanna get better like every team does going into tournament time We feel we're doing that."
(Jon) Harris says his team has all 10 guys contributing and that will be key down the stretch.
Malik Wood has signed a letter of intent to attend Minnesota State Moorhead to play next season.
BSC is on the Road this weekend at Lake Region.
