Clarksville, Ark.-The Texas-Dallas women took advantage of a slow start by the Lady Eagles to pull out a 73-63 win in their American Southwest Conference opener Saturday.

Texas-Dallas (3-0, 1-0 ASC) opened the game on a 20-4 run and then extended its lead to 17 points before Ozarks (1-3, 0-1 ASC) finally climbed within single digits to close out the half. The Lady Eagles hit only eight field goals in the first half to trail 33-24.

It was a different story in the second half. The Lady Eagles would hit 15-of-33 from the field to assist in a comeback. Ozarks opened the second half with a layup by Tamara Wilkett to cut the deficit to 33-26. But Texas-Dallas responded with a run of its own to move ahead 47-32 with 13:37 remaining in the game. Ozarks came back to get within 56-49 after Taylor Farmer converted a three-point play at the 4:28 mark. The Lady Eagles had one more push as Wilkett hit another jumper with under three minutes to play, trimming the deficit to 62-56. But that would be as close as Ozarks could get.

Video Highlights:

Wilkett finished with 14 points. Jordyn Ferrell added 11 points. Chelsea Glasscock had a team-best 10 rebounds.
