DURANT, Okla. - Four players scored in double figures as Southeastern held off a second-half charge by Oklahoma Baptist and pulled away late for a 90-82 win on senior night Thursday evening in Bloomer Sullivan Arena.

The contest was the final home game of the season for the Savage Storm and the final home game ever for the team's lone senior Al Ervin.

Ervin would finish the night with four points, hitting both shots he took.

It was the duo of Kyle Leslie and Jett Sternberger who led the scoring for SE as each player dropped a game-high 22 points, with Leslie going 8-of-15 overall and 5-of-11 from long range, while Sternberger hit 8-of-16 overall and 6-of-8 from beyond the arc.

Brennen Burns followed with 16 points and nearly turned in a double-double as he handed out a game-best nine assists.

Kody Clouet rounded out the double-digit scoring with 13 points on the strength of a trio of threes.

RJ Weeks nearly made it five in double-digits as he went 4-of-8 from the field and finished with nine points.

Leslie and Weeks each added five assists and Sternberger dished out four as Southeastern posted 25 as a team.

Leslie led the way on the boards as well with six rebounds, while Clouet hauled in five.

The teams traded buckets early with the Storm pushing its lead to 11-6 early on a Leslie three just over five minutes into the contest.

The edge would hover between one and four points until the 9:56 mark when a pair of Aaron Jacob free throws extended the lead to 23-17.

OBU would bounce back and tie the game at 27-27, but a 15-3 run over the next four and a half minutes would give Southeastern a 42-30 lead with 1:43 to play in the half.

The lead would peak at 13 points before a Bison three late would trim the Storm lead to 45-35 at halftime.

SE would open the second half on a flurry, outscoring OBU 19-9 over the first 6:27 to extend its lead to a game-high 20 points on a Burns layup that made the score 64-44.

OBU would respond, however, using a 25-8 run of its own to whittle the Storm advantage to 73-69 with 8:21 to play.

A Sternberger three would help stem the tide, and back-to-back buckets from Burns and Clouet would see the SE lead back beyond 10 points at 80-69 with 6:06 to play.

The Bison would close the gap to five points with 4:12 remaining, but that was as close as they would get as a Leslie three provided the Storm answer and Southeastern would hold on for the 90-82 victory.
