No Southeastern Louisiana player had more than seven points.

The Lions, who had their three-game winning streak snapped, scored 13 straight points in the first half to turn an 18-12 deficit into a 25-18 lead with 2:51 left before the half.

Stephen F. Austin pulled within 25-23 at the break, and opened the second half with a 20-3 run to take a 43-28 lead with 10:04 remaining.
