The Lady Eagles (3-3, 0-2 ASC) trailed by only four points with less than five minutes to go in the first half before Texas-Dallas (5-1, 2-1 ASC) went into intermission with a 28-16 lead. Ozarks made an uncharacteristic 1-of-9 from the three-point line in the first half. Oddly enough Texas-Dallas shot only 28 percent from the field in the first half, one percent less than Ozarks.
In the second half, Texas-Dallas extended its lead to 39-20 in the first seven minutes. Bryanna Moltz then hit back-to-back three-pointers to trim the deficit to 41-26. A shot from Brittanie Gragg made it 43-30 with less than ten minutes to play, but the Lady Eagles would score just eight more points the rest of the game. Taylor Famer had nine points and seven rebounds in the second half alone to finish with 15 points and 15 rebounds. She also had four blocks. Moltz recorded six blocks and 11 points.
Ozarks will host Hardin-Simmons University December 6.
