He currently leads the nation in scoring with 2.35 points per game (40 points/17 games), a position he has held since the first week of NCAA reporting. Eight of Bulls’ 15 goals this season are game-winning scores and the 15 goals scored is tied for the sixth-most in school history and the most since Derek McElligott tallied 15 in 2003.

Houapeu produced a pair of three-goal games this season in wins over Drexel and Albany and the 11 helpers are tied for the fourth-most in school history.
