The Redhawks also weren't able to keep up with the Colonels on the glass as the team was out rebounded 48-40. Patricia Mack accounted for a team-leading 10 rebounds, all coming in the first half.

EKU was led by Marie Carpenter's 15 points and Jade Barber's 14 rebounds. Alex Jones had a double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds.

Southeast is now 8-14 and 2-7 in the OVC. The Redhawks will head on the road to play Austin Peay on Monday at 7 p.m.
