Clarksville, Ark.-Senior guard Erica Eneks tied her career-high of 29 points, but it wasn't enough as the Lady Eagles were handed a 90-68 loss against Concordia University Texas in American Southwest Conference play on Thursday night.
The 5-foot-7 shooting guard from Mountainburg, Ark., hit 13-of-14 (92%) from the free throw line, and connected on 4-of-9 (44%) from the three-point line. The visitors from Austin, Texas, out scored Ozarks 49-32 in the second half after holding just a 41-36 halftime lead. Concordia shot 57 percent from the field in the final twenty minutes of play, while Ozarks hit 43 percent of their shots. After Concordia held a 54-41 lead with 13:50 left, Ozarks would eventually cut it to 54-47 when Karen Garcia hit a pair of free throws. Concordia then built a 21-point lead four minutes later. Eneks hit back-to-back three-pointers to get Ozarks within 71-56 with 7:52 remaining. The Tornados, however, wouldn’t let go of their lead, answering each Ozarks’ run.
