Clarksville, Ark.-The Lady Eagles couldn't get anything going offensively as they shot only 27 percent from the field in a 66-48 loss to McMurry University Monday night in American Southwest Conference action.

Ozarks (3-8, 1-5) made seven field goals in the first half and McMurry (7-3, 4-2) forced 12 turnovers and had six steals to hold a 40-19 halftime lead. Kayla Quertermous came off the bench to spark Ozarks in the first half, hitting a pair of three’s, including one with 7:50 left to cut it to 25-12. However, McMurry finished out the half by going on a 15-7 run.

Neither team shot particularly well in the second half, but it was McMurry that built a 20-plus advantage for most of the second half. An Ally Goddard three-pointer in the opening minute of the half cut the deficit to 40-25, but Ozarks wouldn’t get any closer the rest of the way.

11 different players scored for Ozarks, with April Young leading the way with 9 points. Olivia Fisher snagged 7 rebounds.

Ozarks will host Schreiner University January 8 and Texas Lutheran University January 10.
