SE Tripped up by #22 Harding

Southeastern saw its three game winning streak come to an end on Saturday afternoon to No. 22 Harding as the Savage Storm came out on the short end of a 76-67 score in Bloomer Sullivan Arena.

The Savage Storm dip to 12-3 overall on the year and 5-2 in Great American Conference play heading into a three-game conference road swing beginning with a Jan. 15 contest at nationally-ranked Arkansas Tech.

Shelby Hill led all scorers on the night with 21 points on a 7-of-12 shooting effort from behind the arc. She posted six of them in the first half.

Olivia Potter was the only Storm player to join her in double-figures, hitting three three-point buckets en route to 11 points on the night.

Southeastern was outrebounded 47-to-38, with Potter leading the team in boards with five.

Madison Thames dished out a team-best four assists, while Emily Williams added three.

The Storm struggled from the floor, hitting 32.4 percent for the game, including a 25.0 percent effort in the second half.

SE did have a strong showing from behind the arc in the first half, hitting 8-of-16, but that slipped to 5-of-20 in the second half.

Southeastern jumped out to a 9-4 lead early thanks to a pair of Hill threes and another by Williams.

Harding would respond and swipe the lead at the 13:01 mark and lead by as many as seven in the first half before a 6-0 run in the final 1:11 tied the game with 12 seconds left on an Emem David layup.

The Bisons would get a three just before the horn to take a 41-38 lead at halftime.

HU would score the first five points of the second half and the Storm would never regain the lead, falling 76-67.
