Southeast Boys Basketball Wrap [VIDEO]
The Southeast boys basketball program has gone through some lean years but this season, they wracked up 18 wins and a 4th place finish at the 2A State Tournament. In the quarterfinal round, the Cyclones matched up with Tongue River with Southeast prevailing 50-47. This was a game that the Cyclones led at one point 22-5 but hung right in there in the 4th quarter to advance to the semi-final round. Sawyer Anderson was their leading scorer with 13 points. Brant Fuller had 11 while Bodie Herring contributed 8 points with 13 rebounds.
In the 2A semi-finals, Southeast met Sundance in a tremendous game, only to lose 46-44 in double overtime. The Cyclones shot 50% from the field in the first half and led at one point 14-3. But Southeast shot only 25% in the 2nd half and 37% in the overtime sessions. Sawyer Anderson was the only Cyclone player in double figures with 15.
In the 3rd and 4th place contest, Southeast lost to Big Horn 49-36 to finish the year 18-9. The Cyclones were down by as many as 22 and got 14 points in that game from Bodie Herring. For the season, Hayden Anderson earned all-state honors averaging 12 points a game. Sawyer Anderson, Bodie Herring, and Patrick Swank were named to the all-conference team. Both of the Anderson boys, as well as Herring, will return next year as seniors, so Southeast looks to be in pretty good shape.
