Senior Claire Keaton led Southeast with 17 kills and 14 digs. Freshman setter Julie Shives also had a double-double with 41 assists and 15 digs.

Senior Emily Hughes and junior Paige Dossey both reached double-figure kills with 13 and 10, respectively.

Southeast is back in action tonight at sixth-place Murray State (7-12, 3-5).
