SE Men Hit the Road to Face SNU

With three games remaining in the season, Southeastern will set out to face Southern Nazarene at 4 p.m. on Feb. 23, looking to move up in the Great American Conference standings.

The Savage Storm come into Saturday's meeting with a 13-10 record overall and a 9-8 mark in league play, currently in sixth place. With Northwestern Oklahoma State and Southern Nazarene not eligible for postseason play, SE is currently holding the No. 5 seed.

The standings are incredibly jumbled with heading into the second-to-last weekend of the season, with Harding and Arkansas Tech holding the top spot with an 11-6 record, just 1.5 games ahead of the Storm.

While SE has locked up a position in the postseason tournament, their seeding could range from No. 1 through No. 7 depending upon how things shake out down the stretch.

Saturday's game will be a rematch of a Jan. 19 meeting in Durant which SE took by an 82-78 decision.

In that meeting, SNU closed the Storm lead to one point with five seconds to play, but free throws in the final seconds would solidify the win for SE.

Mateus Oliveira added 15 points, while Steven Kohli chipped in 14 and eight rebounds.

Kohli is also averaging in double-figures with 12.3 ppg, while also leading the team in rebounds at 8.0 per outing.

Roussell and Oliveira are each averaging better than seven rebounds per game as well.
