Savage Storm rolls to fourth-straight win


Kevin Buckingham led all scorers with 25 points and Southeastern pushed its winning streak to four games with a 102-59 victory over Ecclesia on Saturday night in Bloomer Sullivan Arena.

The win lifts the Savage Storm to 7-1 on the year heading into a 2 p.m. matchup with Great American Conference rival Henderson State in Bloomer Sullivan Arena on Dec. 18.

Buckingham finished with a game-high 25, his fourth 20-point outing of the season, shooting 11-of-15 from the floor in 23 minutes of work.

Four others joined him in double-figures, with Jett Jobe adding 14 and DJ Henderson finishing with 12.

Kellen Manek and Ziga Zatezic each finished with 11 points.

SE shot 52.6 percent in the first half and finished the night hitting 47.4 percent from the field overall and knocking down 11 threes.

The Storm finished with 29 assists on the night, led by seven from Manek, while Adam Dworsky dished out six.

Defensively, Manek added three steals and a pair of blocks, while the team as a while finished with 10 steals and four blocks.

Buckingham rounded out a double-double with a game-high 11 rebounds, while the Storm held a 62-to-30 edge on the glass.

SE got off to a slow start and trailed 6-5 early and was tied 9-9 with 17:34 to play before a Jobe three pointer kicked off a 13-0 run to open up a 22-9 lead with 12:20 to go in the first half.

The Storm would slowly keep up the push and took its first 20 point lead on a Buckingham layup with 8:54 to go in the half at 33-13.

Another Buckingham layup with 2:49 to play in the first half would make that lead 30 points at 47-17 before EC answered and the Storm would take a 53-26 lead to the locker room at halftime.

The lead would grow past 30 points early in the second half and never look back, with the lead growing as large as 43 points which is where it would settle in the final score of 102-59.
