Kerrville, Texas-Schreiner University won its first American Southwest Conference game of the season in a 56-49 upset against the Lady Eagles Saturday.
Schreiner (2-6, 1-4 ASC) made just one more field goal than the Lady Eagles (5-4, 3-3 ASC) in the first half but held a 25-15 halftime advantage. Ozarks hit 33 percent of their first half shots, while Schreiner made just 29 percent. Ozarks held the lead for the first 13 minutes of the game only to go scoreless the rest of the half.
