Clarksville, Ark.-The Lady Eagles had four players reach double figures and held Mary Hardin-Baylor to 30 percent shooting to pick up a 73-63 American Southwest Conference win Thursday.

Ozarks (6-5, 4-4 ASC) hit 13-of-21 (61%) from the floor in the first half and got 13 points from April Young to lead 36-25 at intermission. Young hit all five of her field goal attempts, three of which were from long-range, in the first half alone. Her layup at the 9:05 mark gave Ozarks a 20-11 lead, but the Crusaders (1-10, 0-7 ASC) fought back to pull within 26-25 with 4:55 remaining. Ozarks then closed out the half with a 10-0 run.

A three-point play from Lacey Phillips put the Lady Eagles ahead 43-31 with 13:23 remaining. Mary Hardin-Baylor made another run to bring it back to 47-44. With Ozarks leading 50-47 at the 6:09 mark, the Crusaders would score just two points over the next three minutes helping the Lady Eagles surge to a 63-49 advantage. Mary Hardin-Baylor held a 35-20 rebound advantage in the second half.

Young led the team with 23 points and hit four three-pointers. Sabrina Goddard followed with 16 points and eight rebounds. Ashley Barry added 11 points and Phillips finished with 10 points.

Ozarks will host Concordia University Texas January 7.
