Lauren Ramey recorded new season-highs with 19 points and seven rebounds while Makyra Tramble poured in 20 points to help the SWOSU Women's Basketball team move to 6-0 on the year and 2-0 against Southeastern with a 77-67 win at the Bloomer Sullivan Arena in Durant.

The Lady Bulldogs went into half trailing for the first time this season, 34-31 despite a 9-0 run in the second where SWOSU held Southeastern scoreless for nearly four minutes. SWOSU pulled away in the second half with the help of Tramble who scored 17 of her 20 points after half.

Tramble extended her double-digit scoring streak to 26 with 20 points and four steals and Karly Gore notched her second double-double of the season, both against Southeastern, with 15 points and 10 rebounds.

"We came out strong in the second half and a lot of that is due to Taber Beer and her defensive presence," Head Coach Kelsi Musick said. "She really created pressure and forced turnovers in the backcourt that helped us regain control of the game."

Beer continued to wreak havoc on opposing offenses with her fifth straight game of at least 3 steals while also scoring six points and dishing out four assists off the bench.

The Lady Bulldogs move to 6-0 on the season with a win, kicking off the second round of GAC play, which continues back at the Pioneer Cellular Event Center against East Central (3-1) on Saturday. The Tigers only loss on the season came from SWOSU to open the season.
