Clarksville, Ark.-Olivia Fisher's 17 points and 11 rebounds were not enough for the Lady Eagles as East Texas Baptist University ended Ozarks season with a 73-59 setback in American Southwest Conference play Saturday.

The Tigers (9-16, 8-12) jumped out to a 32-19 halftime lead and never let Ozarks (5-20, 3-17) get closer than nine points the rest of the way. Ally Goddard’s three-pointer at the 18:24 mark of the second half cut the deficit to 34-25. Over the next three minutes, East Texas Baptist would score twice and Fisher would hit a pair of jumpers, the final cutting it to single digits. But the Tigers quickly built a 15-point advantage to hold Ozarks from any kind of comeback.

Fisher scored 15 of her 17 points in the second half. She recorded her fourth double-double of the season. Sabrina Goddard posted 13 points and 8 rebounds.
