ADA, Okla. - Caitlin Kobiske led all scorers and Kenzli Warden logged a double-double as Southeastern picked up its second-straight victory, downing rival East Central 59-46 on Thursday night in Ada, Okla.

The win lifts the Savage Storm to 6-11 overall on the season and 2-9 in Great American Conference play heading into a Saturday afternoon matchup with Southern Nazarene set for 1 p.m. in Bethany, Okla.

Kobiske finished the contest hitting 6-of-8 from the field and going 3-for-3 at the free throw line to post a game-high 15 points.

Warden was right on her heels offensively, putting up 14 points while adding a game-high 10 rebounds to turn in her second double-double of the season.

Holli Lindley just missed double-digits with nine points, while Aimee Alverson would chip in seven points off the bench and Ashton Hackler finished with six.

Alverson would also hand out a game-high four assists.

The Storm defense was solid, holding the Tigers to 34.0 percent shooting overall from the field and just 14.8 percent fom three-point range, while the SE offense hit 42.6 percent overall.

The teams would trade buckets out of the gate and Southeastern would hold a pair of early leads, but an 8-0 Tiger run would give ECU a 12-6 lead by the 5:14 mark of the first quarter.

A Warden three would end that run and a pair of Beason free throws would close the gap to just one point, but the Storm was unable to regain the lead and ended the first quarter down 18-15.

The second quarter slowed to a crawl, but SE would eventually knot the contest at 22-22 on an Alverson floater with 4:10 to play in the half.

The Tigers would connect on a jumper with 1:37 to play in the second frame but that would end the scoring with ECU leading 24-22.

East Central would push its lead to four points early in the second half, but SE would score the next five points to take a 27-26 lead on a Warden bucket.

ECU would regain the lead briefly and the Storm would respond with its biggest run of the day, scoring the next 12 points with a Kobiske layup with 26 seconds to play to take 39-29 lead.

The Tigers would score the final points of the third quarter and the first two points of the fourth to close the gap to six points, and would get as close as 42-38 with 6:26 to play in the game.

SE would answer with a pair of threes to offset a Tiger layup to see its lead stretch back to 48-40 with 5:06 remaining.

One more push by ECU would cut the Storm lead to six points, but a pair of Alverson free throws would kick off an 11-4 run to end the game with the Storm picking up the 59-46 win.
