The Reddies ran into a large roadblock in the form of the Savage Storm from Southeastern Oklahoma State University. HSU fell 83-61 in their penultimate game of the regular season.

As of late, the Reddies have been in a shooting slump from the floor, averaging just 36 percent in the last two games, which is significantly lower than their 57 percent shooting over the course of the season.

It appeared that Southeastern could do no wrong on the floor, using no-look passes and hitting 11 3-pointers on the night, the Savage Storm dominated the game from the opening tip.

On a night in which you lose by 21 points it would seem that the night was all bad, but that wasn’t the case in this game. The Reddies forced eight turnovers, and shot 75 percent from the free-throw line.

While the Reddies were good from the line the Savage storm was even better, shooting 82 percent, they also won the rebound battle 38-30.They also had four players in double – digit scoring figures, while the Reddies only had one, Tanner Hamilton, whom had 13 points on the night.

The loss does not affect the the Reddies’ standings in the GAC rankings, and they currently place 6th. They next take the court on Saturday, March 2nd in Duke Wells Gym, against East Central Oklahoma.
