Clarksville, Ark.-In a college basketball rarity, Maryville University hit a free throw with no time on the clock in overtime to upend the Eagles 71-70 in Saint Louis on Friday.

Ozarks (1-1) will face Webster University Saturday in another non-conference tilt at 3:00 p.m. An Eagles foul with no time on the clock in overtime led to a Matt Baker free throw that sent Maryville to a one-point victory. Tony Daniels hit a three-pointer to cut Ozarks deficit to 69-68 late in overtime, and a Daniels free throw later tied it at 70-70 in the waning moments, and it appeared the game was headed into another overtime. However, with an Ozarks foul, Baker sank the game-clinching free throw to secure the win.

Ozarks held a 38-27 lead at the half behind a balanced scoring attack. Chris Williams had 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting from the field. Maryville slowly chiseled into the Eagles advantage in the second half and eventually took the lead at the 13:22 mark. The game went back-and-forth for the next three minutes before Maryville established a 56-50 lead with ten minutes remaining. The Eagles, however, fought back and took a 58-56 lead with 3:39 left on a pair of Williams free throws. Jerard McGinty nailed a three-pointer with 24 seconds left in regulation to put Ozarks ahead 65-63, but another costly Ozarks foul with six seconds left allowed Maryville to hit a pair of free throws and send the contest into overtime.

Williams finished with a team-high 17 points and 8 rebounds. Daniels added 14 points, Tony Brock contributed 13 points and Jeremy Clark had 10 points.
