Webb moves to 2nd on all-time scoring list in Storm win

DURANT, Okla. - Katie Webb dropped 19 points to power Southeastern to an 86-52 victory over Oklahoma Baptist and in the process moved into the number two spot on the Savage Storm career scoring list on Thursday night in Shawnee, Okla.

Webb lifts her career scoring total to 1,461 points, passing Jessica Hocker's mark of 1,448 which had ranked second since the 2007-08 season. Webb now trails SE Hall of Famer Crystal Robinson's career total of 3,023 points.

The win lifts the Savage Storm to 14-5 overall on the season and 11-4 in Great American Conference play while also snapping a three-game losing skid.

"She has been fantastic for her five years here," said head coach Darin Grover of Webb. "Not only a fantastic player, but a fantastic person. And then as far as being a student goes, everybody on campus knows who Katie Webb is and she's going to go on and be a huge success in life, not because she's a good basketball player. I don't thin k there's any correlation there. I think she's going to be a huge success in life because of the things she's done to become a great basketball player."

Webb's 19 points came on an 8-of-16 shooting effort with a pair of threes which paced four Storm players to reach double-figures.

Briley Moon connected on four threes and finished with 16 points, while Neely Noel came off the bench to drain five threes on six tries and finish with 15.

Kamryn Cantwell rounded out the double-digit scoring with 13 on the strength of a trio of threes.

In all, the Storm connected on 17 threes and shot 51.5 percent from beyond the arc while shooting 48.5 percent from the field overall.

SE dished out 25 assists on the night as a team, with Cantwell handing out a team-high six, while Tracy Johnson added five and Jordan Benson four.

Logan Oestreich pulled down a team-best seven rebounds, while Moon, Webb, Benson, and Hailey Belvin pulled down five board each.

A Webb three opened the game as the Storm jumped ahead 5-0 before an OBU 8-0 run left SE trailing 8-5 by the 6:04 mark of the first quarter.

Webb would score nine of the next 12 points as the Storm reeled off a 12-2 run to regain control.

In the midst of that run she would connect on a jumper with 4:03 to go in the quarter which would be the points to move her into second on the all-time scoring list at Southeastern.

The teams would trade threes to end the first quarter and SE would lead 20-13 after one.

OBU would cut the Storm lead to 23-18 at the 6:24 mark of the second quarter, but a 16-2 run capped by a Haiden Williams layup would put SE in front 39-20 with 2:43 to go in the half.

Southeastern would go on to finish the half with the final eight points to take a 47-23 lead at the break.

The Storm lead would crack 30 points on a pair of Oestreich free throws at the 6:04 mark of the third quarter.

Overall SE would win the quarter 23-21 and take a 70-44 lead into the fourth.

The Bison would get no closer than 24 points in the quarter and the Storm would score the final seven points to pull away for the 86-52 win.
