Stone is the second-leading scorer on the roster, averaging 17.9 ppg and a team-best 9.4 rpg. Southeast Missouri averages 82.6 ppg while permitting 74.3 ppg.

Chris Horton blocked an Austin Peay-record eight shots to go with his 16 points and 12 rebounds, as the Governors posted an 81-68 victory on Thursday night against UT Martin in their league lid lifter.

Zavion Williams contributed 16 points and Will Triggs and Travis Betran each scored 15 for APSU, which has won two in a row.

Horton and Betran lead the Governors in scoring, with the former putting up 13.9 to go with an outstanding 10.1 rebounds and 3.2 blocks per game, while the latter accounts for 13.5 ppg. Triggs rounds out the double-digit scorers with 11.1, as Austin Peay lights up the scoreboard for 76.6 ppg.
