Southwestern led this one at the half over the Commodores 27-23, and took firm control of the contest by outscoring the visitors 19-12 in the third period, taking a double digit lead into the fourth quarter.
Cameron Pierce had a very nice game with seven points and four assists, and he led the Warriors with 10 boards.
Andrew Smith tallied six points in the win, while adding five rebounds and four assists.
The victory improved Southwestern to 13-15 on the season, and the game marked the Warriors final game this season in the friendly confines at The Wigwam.
Southwestern will close out the regular season on Thursday night at Cordia, before beginning play in the 48th District Tournament next Monday night, February 18th.
