The Redhawks started the game on a 23-5 run. Wilford made three consecutive 3-pointers during the stretch.
In the first half, Wilford made 6 of 7 3-pointers and had 20 points as Southeast Missouri led 65-30 at halftime.
Southeast Missouri shot 73.5 percent (25 of 34) while holding Austin Peay to 33.3 percent (9 of 27) in the first half.
The Redhawks led by as many as 40 points in the second half.
Travis Betran scored 26 points for the Governors (7-23, 3-12), who have lost three straight.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
