Clarksville, Ark.-LeTourneau University held off an Ozarks second half rally to earn a 73-70 win over the Lady Eagles in American Southwest Conference play on Thursday night.

Trailing 69-58 with 2:34 left in the game, Ozarks (1-13, 1-8) fought back to within 70-66 after Erica Eneks hit a jumper at the 1:07 mark. LeTourneau (4-10, 2-8) then went 2-of-4 from the free throw line to push their lead to 72-66 with 21 seconds. Eneks nailed a pair of free throws to cut it to 72-68, but it was too late as Ozarks got only one more offensive possession in the game.

The YellowJackets led 39-26 at the half, and had a double-digit lead with less than ten minutes left in the second half until the Lady Eagles made a run. LeTourneau went up 63-47 with 6:26 remaining in the game before Ozarks went on a 16-6 run capped by a pair of free throws from Olivia Fisher with 2:19 left. The game was marred by a combined 65 fouls. LeTourneau went to the free throw line 53 times and hit 34 of their attempts. Ozarks went 21-of-34 from the free throw line.

Eneks paced Ozarks with 28 points, the fourth straight game she has led the team in scoring. Fisher had 11 points and a team-best 11 rebounds. Kristen Baskin led LeTourneau with 21 points, including hitting 16-of-20 from the free throw line.

Ozarks will host East Texas Baptist University on January 19. The game is designated as “Hall of Fame” day. Members of the U of O Sports Hall of Fame will be recognized following the women’s game. The game can be heard on the web at www.kxio-fmradio.com.
