No. 23 Lions hold on for 70-67 win at Northeastern State

Updated:

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. -- A three pointer from Marquis Addison with 4:40 left in the second half put the No. 23 Missouri Southern men's basketball team on top for good as the Lions went on the road and defeated Northeastern State 70-67. 

The Lions (14-3) were led in scoring by Addison as the sophomore scored 20 points and added 10 rebounds, both career highs for him. He went just 2-9 from the field, but made 15-18 from the free-throw line. Keane Thomann had 19 points on 9-14 shooting, while Jason Adams added 11 points, seven assists and six rebounds. Christian Salecich and Jordan Talbert both scored seven points, while Salecich added six assists and Talbert pulled down seven boards. 

NSU (3-14) was led in scoring by John Schneider with 14 points, while Terance Reaves scored 12 points off the bench. 

Both teams started off the game scoring points at will. A three pointer from NSU's Reaves made the score 23-19, Riverhawks with 11:45 left in the first half. After a layup from Adams tied the score at 28 with 5:38 to go in the half, another three from Reaves put NSU back up 31-28 with 4:45 left. The Riverhawks led by three with 1:48 left in the half, but Thomann scored six-unanswered points for the Lions to send Southern into the locker room, up 39-36 at the half.

A three pointer from NSU's Ethan Anderson with 6:56 left to go in the game gave the Riverhawks a five-point lead (59-54), but Southern then went on a 10-0 run to take a five-point lead themselves (64-59) after a pair of free-throws from Salecich with 3:49 to go. NSU got as close as one down the stretch but the Lions held on for the win. 

The Lions shot 59 percent in the first half and 50 percent in the game from the field. They out rebounded NSU 33-22 and held the Riverhawks to just four field goals in the final 13 minutes of the game. 

Southern will be back in action on Wednesday evening, playing host to No. 24 Northwest Missouri with a share of first place in the MIAA on the line.
