Clarksville, Ark.- University of the Ozarks senior guard Erica Eneks became the school's all-time three-point leader in a 81-60 loss to Louisiana College on Saturday in American Southwest Conference action.
Eneks ended the game shooting 6-of-8 from the three-point line, with her final and record-breaking shot coming with 3:25 remaining in the game. Eneks came into the game needing five to tie the record, but was able to break the mark on Ozarks “Senior Day” in front of the home crowd. Eneks has hit 176-of-565 (31%) three-pointers in her career, one more than former Ozarks’ standouts Penni Peppas (1990-94) and Paige Dean (1994-98). The Lady Eagles (1-22, 1-17), however, had trouble keeping up with the fast-paced Lady Wildcats (15-8, 11-7) from the opening tip. Louisiana College had the lead the entire game, including a 46-30 halftime advantage. Eneks, the ASC’s leading scorer, kept Ozarks in the game with 14 first half points.
Louisiana College hit 51 percent from the field in the second half to make it difficult for the Lady Eagles to get the deficit under double-digits. Five Louisiana College players reached double figures, with Taylor Henderson scoring a team-best 24 points.
Eneks finished with 26 points. Molly Patterson added 10, and grabbed 10 rebounds for her first double-double of the season.
Ozarks will finish the season with a pair of road games. The Lady Eagles will play at LeTourneau on February 21 and East Texas Baptist on February 23.
