THOMASVILLE, Ga.—Another lock-down effort helped the Southeastern women’s basketball team secure its 51st consecutive regular season victory.
The Fire (25-0) held the Night Hawks to just 23% from the field and 3-of-16 from 3-point range in a 76-37 win on Saturday.
This marked the 39th consecutive victory over a Sun Conference opponent for SEU.
The defense has been the key as of late for the top-ranked Fire, holding its last three opponents under 50 points, and six of its last seven.
Leading the offense was Ana Richter, who scored a game-high 22 points, hauled in nine rebounds, dished out two assists, and picked up a block and five steals.
Jaycee Coe got things started for SEU, knocking down two of her six 3-pointers on the day in the first 52 seconds of the contest. Coe finished with 20 points, six rebounds, and four steals.
The Fire scored the first nine points of the game, and led by 15 after 10 minutes, thanks to another 3-poiner from Coe with 1:28 left in the first.
Halee Printz helped guide the offense to a 47% shooting night, scoring nine points and dishing out eight assists.
Southeastern also held Thomas to single digits in the fourth quarter, outscoring TU 16-7 over the final 10 minutes.
The Fire return to action on Thursday in Miami Gardens against Florida Memorial.
