MONTICELLO, Ark. — A tough afternoon shooting and an even tougher night with the whistles left Southeastern on the wrong end of a 65-57 score against Arkansas-Monticello on Saturday afternoon.


The loss is the fifth-straight for the Storm who slip to 4-5 overall on the season and 2-2 in Great American Conference play.


SOSU shot 34.4 percent in the game, but still held UAM to just 38.1 percent in the contest.


The real difference came at the free throw line where the Storm did capitalize on its 16 free throws by making 12, but that paled in comparison to the 45 freebies the Boll Weevils were given, making 28 of them.


Those free shots came at the misfortune of a pair of SOSU players who fouled out of the contest, with five others in foul trouble when the game ended. The foul differential when the dust settled was 32 on the Storm to just 14 for UAM.


Despite fouling out with 5:59 to play Urald King led the scoring for SOSU with a game-high 16 points on 8-of-10 shooting.


Daichi Tanuguchi and Anton Cook each added nine points in the game, while Darius Harris chipped in eight.


Harris led all players on the board before he too took an early seat due to fouls, pulling down 10 rebounds as the Storm held a 40-to-37 edge on the glass.
