DURANT — Southeastern’s men’s basketball team will open a three-game Division I exhibition tour beginning tonight when it heads to San Antonio for a 7 p.m. matchup against Texas-San Antonio.


The Savage Storm come into the season picked third in the Great American Conference preseason poll on the heels of a 15-12 finish that saw SOSU earn the No. 4 seed in the GAC postseason tournament.


The selection is in spite of Southeastern seeing its top five scorers from a season ago depart, but is based on the excitement of the return of players who had their 2012-13 seasons cut short.


The first is Urald King, who competed in just one contest a season ago, dropping 25 points in 27 minutes before deciding to spend the year on the sideline recovering from an injury.


The other is Travis Timmons, who missed games in the second half of the GAC season after posting top-10 in the nation assist numbers through the first half of the season, including setting a Southeastern record for assists in a game with 16.
