Clarksville, Ark.-Mississippi College powered their way behind Bryan Johnson and Richard Worthy to a 95-80 American Southwest Conference win against the Eagles Thursday night.

The Choctaw (14-5, 10-5) inside duo combined for 52 points on 23-of-35 shooting from the floor. Johnson was especially strong in the second half, scoring 23 of his game-high 31 points. It was Jeremy Clark though that helped Ozarks (10-10, 8-7) to a quick start. Clark scored seven straight points to open the game, helping the Eagles maintain a steady lead through the first ten minutes. The senior guard from Houston, Texas, nailed a pair of first half three-pointers, including one at the 15-minute mark to put Ozarks ahead 16-8. Ozarks held a 11-point advantage three minutes later, but the Choctaws eventually took the lead on a Worthy three-pointer with 6:22 left, and Mississippi College went into the half with a 38-33 advantage.

The Choctaws shot 65 percent from the field in the second half, but had trouble pulling away from the Eagles early on. With Mississippi College holding a 52-45 advantage at the 14:03 mark, Chris Williams hit a three to get within four points. Ozarks then got stuck on 48 points while the Choctaws scored ten straight, and then they maintained a double-digit lead for the next four minutes before Ozarks cut it to 75-67 on Tony Brock’s layup with 6:02 left. The Choctaws then outscored Ozarks 20-13 the rest of the way.

Clark, who scored 12 points in the first half, finished with a team-high 16. Williams and Tony Daniels each turned in 15 point performances. Andre Williams, Jerard McGinty and Brock each scored 10 points.

Ozarks will host Louisiana College this Saturday at 3:00 pm. The game can be heard locally on KXIO 106.9 FM and on the web at
