LeTourneau got off to a hot start Saturday afternoon. The Yellow Jackets started the game off on a 12-0 run and carried their hot shooting throughout the rest of the half. They boasted a 61 percent shooting percentage from the floor and rode that to a 62-39 halftime lead. Dylan Gray and Reno Dupor combined for 19 of the 39 first half points for the Eagles. Ozarks was able to collect themselves and came out ready to play in the second half. Gray spearheaded the charge with 22 of his 32 points coming in the final frame. The Eagles were never quite able to pull themselves out of the hole after the first half. They were however, able to trim the lead to as little as 10 with 3:12 to play off a Joey Hall and-one layup. The comeback fell just a little short as LeTourneau pulled out the win, 107-96.
LeTourneau made 30 of 36 attempts from the free throw line while Ozarks made just 17 of 21.
The Eagles made 13 of 26 three point attempts and finished with an impressive 57 points off the bench.
On Monday, the Eagles will travel to Texas to take on UT-Tyler at 7:30 p.m.
