Clarksville, Ark.-Erica Eneks' three-pointer with 2:33 remaining broke a 63-63 tie and enabled the University of the Ozarks women's basketball team to earn a 72-66 win over North Central College and gave head coach Christina Jost her first win as a collegiate head coach.
Eneks only three on Saturday came at the most opportune time as her bucket gave Ozarks (1-1, 0-0) a 66-63 advantage and a lead they would never relinquish. Ozarks biggest lead of the night came when Randall hit a pair of free throws with 5:25 remaining in the game.

Eneks finished with 17 points and Jeanne Randall and Lindsey Nietert had 14 and 12 points, respectively. Randall collected a team-best 8 rebounds.
