Hardin-Simmons went on a 18-11 run in the final five minutes of game and doomed the Eagles as the Cowboys pulled away for a 82-71 win Wednesday night. Just after the Eagles had cut the deficit to 64-60, Hardin-Simmons reeled off a trio of three-point shots to end the hopes of Ozarks. The Cowboys led 39-33 at the half and never let the Eagles grab the lead although Ozarks did tie it early in the second half. Lance Gardner led the Eagles with 15 points.
The Eagles gave up three three-pointers and 18 points in the final five minutes.
The Eagles will travel to Texas to take on Mary Hardin-Baylor December 15 and Concordia University Texas December 17.
