Clarksville, Ark.-Four Lady Eagles reached double figures in their 79-67 win over UT-Tyler Saturday in American Southwest Conference play in Tyler, Texas.
Ozarks (6-16, 4-13 ASC) rolled out to a 43-29 lead at the half behind 12 points from Sabrina Goddard and 11 points from Alison Villines. Goddard sank two of her eight free throws in the first half at the 6:36 mark to give Ozarks its first double-digit lead. The Lady Eagles kept that momentum the remainder of the half, and held a 38-23 advantage with 2:32 to go. Villines drilled one of her three three-pointers in the first half with 13 seconds left to help the Lady Eagles to their 14-point halftime lead.
UT-Tyler (10-12, 8-9 ASC) cut the deficit to five points twice in the second half, but that would be as close as they could get. The Patriots cut it to 52-47 at the 11:24 mark, but Villines drained a shot from behind the arc to quickly erase a Patriot comeback. The Patriots made another run later that put the score at 62-57 with 6:53 remaining, however, Ozarks answered with a 9-0 run, capped by an April Young three-pointer with 4:15 left.
Goddard finished with 22 points. Villines followed with 16 points, and Ashley Teague had 14 points. Chelsea Glasscock added 13 points.
