Ozarks, which won its second straight game, improves to 9-7 overall and 5-6 in the ASC. The Lady Eagles controlled the first half and built a 25-11 lead with 8:50 left on Goddard’s jumper. But Texas-Tyler (7-8, 5-5 ASC) shaved the deficit to 25-20 just two minutes later. Chelsea Glasscock drilled a three-pointer on Ozarks next possession and Lacey Phillips made a pair of free throws to make it 30-20 with five minutes left in the half.
