Southeastern holds the No. 2 spot, and looks to present the toughest challenge Thomas has faced since facing Embry-Riddle, the current first place team, earlier this month.
“They’re very solid on the mound,” Lee said of Southeastern. “Probably the best pitching we’ve seen since Riddle.”
Lee will send Kurt Gens and Ben Overman to the mound for Sunday’s doubleheader, and the emerging Justin Hicks will assume duties for Monday’s game.
“He’s really come along. He’s been our bullpen guy for weekend series, not getting a whole lot of innings, but we’ve been using him a lot more.”
