Clarksville, Ark.-Four players reached double figures as the Lady Eagles cruised to a 75-61 American Southwest Conference win over East Texas Baptist University Thursday night.
The Lady Eagles (10-10, 7-9 ASC) built a big first half lead and never turned back. East Texas Baptist (6-14, 4-11 ASC) held the lead briefly in the opening minutes, but Ozarks established control of the game at the mid-way point of the first half and led 40-23 at intermission. An April Young three-pointer with 9:08 left gave Ozarks a 22-10 lead. Another three by Young put Ozarks in front by 21 points near the end of the half.
In the second half, the Lady Tigers never really got back into the game as Ozarks continued its balanced offensive play. Five players had at least six points apiece in the second half. The Lady Eagles pushed the lead to 48-27 after a Sabrina Goddard shot at the 15:51 mark. The Lady Eagles had another 20-point advantage with less than five minutes left behind another Goddard basket.
Goddard and Young each had 16 points. Lacey Phillips added 13 points and Alison Villines contributed 10 points.
Ozarks will host Centenary College this Saturday.
