The Night Hawks retain a tie for third place in the Sun Conference standings with Saturday’s win, and host second place Southeastern next weekend in Thomasville.
“That’s why this game was big,” Lee said. “You’ve got to get at l east one. Getting swept at this point in the season is killer. We’d already lost the series yesterday and talked about it. I told them not to let one game or day define you or this team.
“It’s certainly not over by a long shot.”
Thomas (17-14, 12-6) has just 18 games remaining in 2014, of which 10 are against conference opponents. The top four finalists qualify for the postseason tournament.
