Clarksville, Ark.-A last second three-point attempt by the University of the Ozarks missed and Mississippi College escaped with a 80-77 win Saturday in American Southwest Conference play.

Trailing by three points and with nine seconds remaining in the game, Ozarks (6-16, 3-14 ASC) worked the clock and eventually got the ball in the hands of three-point extraordinaire Dustin Morett. Morett dribbled to the top of the key and then went to his left and launched a three-pointer with two seconds left that got rim.

It was a furious second half comeback for the Eagles, who trailed 74-61 with 5:41 left in the game. Morett hit a three-pointer to trim the deficit to 76-67 with 4:14 left. David Robertson fueled the rally with less than two minutes to play by hitting a three and making a layup. His layup with 1:19 got Ozarks within 78-75. Marcus Bobb then converted a pair of free throws to make it 78-77. Mississippi College (12-10, 9-8 ASC) answered with two clutch free throws from Marlon Easter with 11 seconds left.

Ozarks went into intermission with a 44-40 deficit even though it had the lead for most of the first half.

Bobb paced Ozarks with 23 points and seven rebounds. Morett hit five three-pointers and scored 20 points. Andre Williams added 14 points.

Ozarks will host Louisiana College in a rare Monday afternoon game starting a 3:00 p.m. The Eagles will then finish the season by hosting LeTourneau University February 17 and Texas-Tyler February 19.
