Clarksville, Ark.-The Eagles shot just 29 percent from the field in the second half as Texas Lutheran took a 69-64 American Southwest Conference win on Monday night.

The Eagles (4-4, 1-3) had a narrow 33-32 advantage at the half, but couldn’t find their rhythm in the second half making only 10-of-34 field goals. They made just three of their 16 second half three-point attempts.

Ozarks stormed out of the gate early, holding a13-1 lead with 16:02 remaining in the first half. Texas Lutheran (1-7, 1-3) slowly climbed back into the contest, and tied the back-and-forth affair at 21-21 with 6:26 left.

The Bulldogs opened the second half with only their second lead of the game when J.C. Herebia hit a jumper one minute into the contest. Texas Lutheran then built a 51-41 advantage over the next eight minutes before the Eagles staged a comeback. With the Bulldogs leading 53-43 at the 10:05 mark of the second half, Ozarks went on a 7-0 run to cut it to 53-50. With 5:31 left, Texas Lutheran still held a slight 59-52 lead, but Ozarks once again ripped off four straight points to make it a three-point game. However, the Bulldogs hit back-to-back baskets to maintain control of the final minutes.

Chris Clark was the only Eagle in double figures with 11 points. Clark, Chris Williams and Tony Daniels all had 6 rebounds.

Ozarks will travel to Abilene, Texas, to face Hardin-Simmons University on January 3 and McMurry University on December 5.
