Southeastern Ready for SNU Matchup

Southeastern will set out to snap its current losing streak when it makes its way to Bethany, Okla., for a 4 p.m. contest against Southern Nazarene on Jan. 18.

The Savage Storm come into the contest amidst an eight-game losing skid that has dropped the team's record to 4-8 and 2-5 in Great American Conference play.

The last loss was especially rough against Harding as SE had forced overtime on the road and held a lead in the extra frame only to be denied the elusive victory in an 88-86 loss.

The Storm is paced by a trio of double-digit scorers that are led by the 16.5 ppg from Urald King.

He is followed by Taylor Smaller at 11.2 ppg and John Balwigaire at 10.1.

Smaller leads the offense with 3.5 assists per game.

King leads the charge on the glass as well with 8.4 rebounds per outing as the Storm holds a 33.5-to-32.3 edge on the boards.

Southeastern is also shooting 47.2 percent from the field which ranks very near the top of the conference, while also ranking in the top third in field goal percentage defense as foes hit 42.0 percent from the field.

SNU comes into the game off its own overtime loss, theirs coming at the hands of East Central at 62-61.

Overall the team is 7-7 on the year and 5-3 in GAC play.

The Crimson Storm still top the GAC in scoring at 78/9 ppg, led by CJ Smith who is scoring 21.0 ppg, while Quan Conner is right behind at 19.4 per outing.

Conner also dishes out as team-best 3.1 assists per game, while Antwone Jackson is pulling down a team-high 6.2 rebounds per game.
