Clarksville, Ark.-The Lady Eagles made just three field goals in the first half and never recovered as UT-Dallas handed Ozarks a 81-48 setback in American Southwest Conference play Monday night.
The Comets (14-2, 11-0) raced out to a 44-12 halftime advantage and never let Ozarks get going offensively, holding the Lady Eagles (5-11, 3-8) to a 3-for-20 performance from the field. Meanwhile, the Comets made five three-pointers and forced 13 turnovers in the first half. Ozarks shot nearly 50 percent in the second half, but UT-Dallas hit just as many shots to keep the Lady Eagles from rallying.
Ironically, the Lady Eagles hit 16-of-17 (94%) from the free throw line in the game.
Nine different players scored for Ozarks, with Olivia Fisher scoring a team-high 9 points.
Ozarks will travel to Tyler, Texas, to face UT-Tyler January 24.
