SEASON OUTLOOK All construction projects start with a solid foundation and continue building upward until the job is complete. For second-year head coach Paul Lusk, the task of building the Missouri State men’s basketball program into a contender once again in the Missouri Valley Conference begins this winter with a sturdy foundation of returners and a promising cast of six up-and-coming freshmen. Lusk’s squad was dealt a mighty blow in July when returning starter Jarmar Gulley (Sr., F, Beaumont, Texas) suffered an ACL tear during a summer league game. At 10.4 points and 5.8 rebounds per game, Gulley would have been the club’s top returning rebounder and second-best returning scorer. However, his injury will force him to sit out this year, and the Bears will hold his 25 starts as a trump card for next season’s phase of the project. That leaves Anthony Downing (Sr., G, Atchison, Kan.) as the club’s lone active senior this winter, putting the 2012 MVC All-Newcomer selection in a unique leadership capacity. “We expect him to have a big season for us,” Lusk said of Downing, who averaged 11.5 points and knocked down 41 3-pointers as a junior. “He’s very consistent offensively and defensively, and he is embracing his leadership role on our team.” Downing was a four-time MVC Newcomer of the Week in 2011-12 after transferring from Independence (Kan.) Community College. His calm presence and clutch shooting will be pivotal this season as the biggest piece in the club’s foundation. Marcus Marshall Also return2

ing are juniors Nathan Scheer (Jr., G/F, Washington, Mo.) and Keith Pickens (Jr., F, St. Louis, Mo.). The pair have combined for 42 starts in their MSU careers, including Gavin Thurman 14 by Scheer last season. Both are solid defenders who will be counted on to increase their scoring production, and both can defend multiple positions which only adds to their value. The rest of the team is comprised of freshmen and sophomores, including returning starter Christian Kirk (So., F/C, Springfield, Mo.) who came into his own late in his freshman season to start 13 Valley games. He has added size, confidence and experience since last March and will be the anchor for the Bears in the low post. Kirk and returning squadman Tomie Aromona (So., G, Kansas City, Mo.), who is an athletic defender and reserve point, comprise the sophomore class. The six freshmen represent the future of the program, and Lusk knows this crop of athletic, high-impact players will be pivotal to reaching the program’s long-term goals. Gavin Thurman (F, Wichita, Kan.) is a 6-foot-6 wing who is wired for scoring with great range and size. Marcus Marshall (G, St. Paul, Minn.) is capable of playing point guard, but looks to score and is arguably the top perimeter defender in this class. Redshirt freshmen Dorrian Williams (G, Oklahoma City, Okla.) and Drew Wilson (F, Tulsa, Okla.) will both push for starting roles as well. Williams can score, but takes care of the basketball well and is an efficient distributor. Wilson is long, athletic and is a capable defender who has a good basketball motor on both ends. Michael Simpson (G, Spring, Texas) is a 6-foot-5 sharp shooter who can also mix it up on the boards, while Bruce Marshall (C, Fayette, Mo.) is a 6-foot-10 post who is known for his range and ability to face up and score. Marshall averaged 28.9 points and 12 rebounds per game as a prep senior and comes to the program with confidence and experience to be a consistent play maker. A solid foundation. Talented freshmen. A proud program. The 2012-13 Bears hope the tools to success lie in that combination of pieces in building a Valley contender.

POINT BLANK With the loss of senior point guard Michael Bizoukas, who led the MVC in assists and assist-to-turnover ratio, the Bears will reload with Dorrian Williams getting the majority of the minutes at point this winter. Williams, who is also a solid defender, redshirted as a true freshman after preseason surgery kept him sidelined early. He brings an added dimension to the position with his ability to score points, and Lusk says that will be a welcome addition to the team’s arsenal. “I feel like he’s got a bright future,” said Lusk. “He needs to gain experience, and he’ll get that this year. But, he can handle the ball, make good decisions and make shots.” Marcus Marshall will likely provide relief minutes when necessary at the point, while Tomie Aromona has proven his ability to play and contribute in big-game situations by logging minutes last season against Nevada, St. Mary’s and Wichita State.

THREE IS THE KEY At the small forward position, the Bears will use a combination of players to make up for not having a healthy Jarmar Gulley this season. Scheer’s defense and shooting range will earn him ample playing time at the 3 spot, while Keith Pickens also looks to fill a greater role this year. Pickens started seven of the last Nathan Scheer eight games in

S

SHOOTER ON THE LOOSE The Bears will once again have outside shooting threats at guard with Anthony Downing anchoring a solid cast of performers ready to knock down outside shots. Downing was second on the club in 3-pointers (41) and assists (74) a year ago and finished sixth in the league in free throw percentage (.821). His versatility on the perimeter, rebounding skills and ability to defend opposing shooters make Downing a real triple threat. Before he plays his first college game, Marcus Marshall already has earned the respect of the Bears’ coaching staff. The combo guard will get some minutes at point guard, but he’s a natural scorer, and MSU fans will love his intensity and play-making ability. Nathan Scheer is a combo 2-3 player who has worked hard on his 3-point shot in the offseason to give the Bears an additional scoring threat. He looks to return to the performance level of his freshman season when he earned MVC All-Freshman Team honors, knocked down 27 threes, made 88 percent of his free throws and contributed 40 assists. “(Scheer) brings value on the defensive end and understands what we’re doing defensively,” said Lusk. “But he takes charges, dives for loose balls and does the little things right. We also expect him to show consistency as an offensive threat for us this season.”

2011-12 and brings impressive rebounding skills and the potential to be a lock-down defender. “He helps the team with his overall competitiveness, and he is as healthy as he has been with us,” Lusk said of Pickens. “He can guard multiple positions, and we need him to be a scoring threat.” Freshman Michael Simpson will provide valuable minutes as well. His quick-release shot and overall size make him a great candidate to come off the bench for a key 3-pointer or a big rebound when the Bears need him the most. Walk-on Ryan Carmichael (Jr., G, Aurora, Mo.) joined the squad in late October and is also known for his shooting stroke and basketball IQ. He’ll fight for minutes and give the Bears another threat. www.MissouriStateBears.com

ATHLETES IN OUR MIDST Teams don’t replace legendary players easily, so the Bears don’t have any illusions of one guy stepping into the role of Kyle Weems, the graduated three-time All-MVC forward who earned the league’s 2011 Player of the Year honor. A pair of athletic freshman power forwards, however, will start building their own legacies this season. Drew Wilson is an athletic redshirt freshman who can jump, rebound and defend while steadily improving on the offensive end. He’ll provide the Bears with a great inside defender, and Gavin Thurman will provide the squad with a major scoring threat from all areas on the floor. “Drew has a good motor and is probably our best overall athlete,” said Lusk. “He plays hard, and we need him to be our best rebounder. He’s still learning the game in many ways, but he’s a very coachable kid. “Gavin is really good on the offensive end. He can score in a variety of ways. He continues to improve physically and is a face-up forward who can facilitate and score the ball.” Thurman can shoot the three and finish around the rim, while Wilson’s ability to get to the rim and rebound make them an ideal one-two punch.

The NAIA Panthers were 15-15 last winter and posted an 8-6 conference mark in the GCAC. But, the season kicks into gear the following weekend with a visit from preseason top 25 San Diego State in the annual Mountain West-Missouri Valley Conference Challenge. The Aztecs were an NCAA Tournament team in 2012 and posted a 26-8 record after bowing out to North Carolina State in the second round. Two days later, the Bears continue a four-game home stand with two home contests in the Hoops for Hope Classic. MSU will host Jacksonville on Nov. 19 and Malone on Nov. 21 in the opening rounds of the event, which continues in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Coach Lusk’s troops will battle SEC foe South Carolina in the semifinals of the Hoops for Hope event on Sat., Nov. 24 in Mexico. The next day, the Bears will take on either Southern Methodist or Arkansas-Little Rock for first or third place. MSU is the only team in the Mexico portion of the event that finished .500 or better last season. South Carolina was 10-21 a year ago, including a 1-12 mark away from home, while SMU was 13-19, and UALR was 15-16. December gets underway with a visit from Oral Roberts on Dec.

IN A NUTSHELL Behind Navy (0.78) and UC Santa Barbara (0.78), the Bears (0.83) have the least college experience per player than any other Division I program this season. But despite the question marks, the foundation is solid for MSU this winter, and Coach Lusk says his troops are hungry and eager to prove themselves. “Starting the year, we have a lot of unknowns,” said Lusk. “The summer tour (of Costa Rica) was very good for us. Anthony Downing is the only guy who has produced consistently at a high level in this league, so he will have to lead by example, and other guys are going to have to step up. Our team is very coachable, they are hungry, and they have worked very hard to get ready for this season.”

  The future of Missouri State basketball continues to look bright as Paul Lusk enters his second year as Bears’ head coach.   During his Missouri State debut season in 2011-12, he guided MSU to a third-place finish in the Missouri Valley Conference, tied a school record for most road wins and finished 16-16 overall with arguably the toughest non-conference schedule in the program’s history.   His first priorities when he was announced as Missouri State’s 17th men’s basketball head coach on April 1, 2011 were to reaffirm commitments from the four players already signed to attend Missouri State and begin finalizing the roster for his debut season. He was successful in both ventures. The three incoming freshmen -- Christian Kirk, Drew Wilson and Dorrian Williams -- all honored their National Letters of Intent, along with juco transfer Jarmar Gulley. He then filled the remaining scholarships with

2012-13 Men’s Basketball Guide

Paul Lusk juco standout Anthony Downing, who went on to earn a spot on the 2012 MVC All-Newcomer Team, Michael Bizoukas, a one-year senior transfer from DePaul who led The Valley in assists and assist-to-turnover ratio, and juco big man Corbin Thomas.   Likewise, Lusk helped maximize the performance of the team’s six returning lettermen. Kyle Weems closed out his career with All-MVC first team honors and was a finalist for the Lou Henson Mid-Major National Player of the Year Award. Fellow senior Caleb Patterson earned MVC MostImproved Team honors, and the team placed two veteran players -- Isaiah Rhine and Nathan Scheer -- on the MVC Scholar-Athlete second team. Keith Pickens established himself as one of the MVC’s top defensive players in his return to the MSU rotation and finished fourth on the team in rebounding. Between, Downing, Gulley and Bizoukas, the Bears claimed MVC Newcomer of the Week honors eight times, the second-highest total by one school in league history.   Close calls and tight finishes became the team’s calling card in 201112 with five overtime games and 17 games decided by single digits. MSU’s 12 single-digit losses were the most in the MVC and program’s most since 2002.   Lusk’s inaugural campaign was also highlighted by a 4-0 start that included one-sided road wins at Nevada and Arkansas State. The Bears began league play with a 12-point win at No. 19 Creighton, the team’s first Top 25 win since 2008 and first-ever road win over a ranked opponent. The Bears came within an eyelash of beating Big East power West Virginia in the Las Vegas Classic and also had No. 18 Creighton on the ropes in the final seconds of a home game at JQH Arena on Jan. 18 in two

potential season-changing decisions.   The 40-year-old coach came to Missouri State after seven seasons as an assistant coach at Purdue. When Cuonzo Martin accepted the MSU job in 2008, Lusk was promoted to Boilermakers’ associate head coach under Matt Painter, a position he held until coming to MSU.   He was named by FoxSports.com as one of the nation’s top 25 high-major assistant coaches in the summer of 2010. In April 2011, Lusk was inducted into the Illinois Basketall Hall of Fame, and after his first year at MSU, CollegeSportsMadness.com named Lusk its 2012 MVC coach of the year after taking the Bears from a predicted sixth-place finish to tie for third.   During his tenure on the Purdue coaching staff, Lusk helped guide the Boilermakers to five consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances with a collective 129-45 ledger during that span. He first came to West Lafayette in 2004-05 as an assistant under then-coach Gene Keady and stayed on board at Purdue when Painter took the coaching reigns in 2005-06.   Before moving to Purdue, he spent one season on Painter’s staff at Southern Illinois in 2003-04, a campaign that also culminated in an NCAA Tournament berth, a No. 15 national ranking and a 25-5 overall record.   Prior to that, he spent one season as head coach at (Division III) University of Dubuque in Iowa. His head coaching debut came on the heels of three seasons at Division II Missouri Southern State in Joplin where he was an assistant under coach Robert Corn. The Lions were 71-21 in that span (1999-2002) with an NCAA Tournament appearance in 1999-2000. His coaching career started with a one-year stint as an assistant at Southwestern Illinois College in Belleville where coach Jay Harrington’s Blue Storm finished 19-12.   The native of New Baden, Ill., began his playing career at Iowa in 1990 where he spent two years before he found a home at SIU under coach Rich Herrin. He helped guide the Salukis to three straight NCAA Tournament trips (1993-95), earning AllMVC second-team honors in 1994 with a 15.2 scoring average as a junior. As a senior, he earned a spot on the Valley ScholarAthlete and All-Tournament teams and finished his career with 1,666 points.   He went on to play professionally both in the United States and Argentina and earned two different invitations to the Phoenix Suns’ training camp.   A 1995 graduate of SIU-Carbondale, Lusk and his wife Melanie have a daughter, Maddie, and a son, Jack. The couple both earned their Masters of Science in Education from Missouri State in December 2000.

He was promoted to associate head coach at Loyola for the 2010-11 season after six seasons as an assistant for coach Jim Whitesell. Prior to his arrival at Loyola Chicago, he had successful assistant coaching stints at Green Bay (2002-04) and Lincoln University in Jefferson City (2001-02).   Originally from Leavenworth, Kan., Baldwin has worked with both post and perimeter players at Loyola. During the 2009-10 season, the Ramblers were one of 24 Division I programs to receive public recognition from the NCAA for an Academic Progress Rate (APR) in the top 10 percent nationally. Loyola had milestone wins over Georgia (2008-09) and Butler (2006-07) during his tenure with the Horizon League program, highlighted by an impressive 21-11 season in 2006-07.   His two seasons at Green Bay yielded a school-record nine-game winning streak in 2003-04, along with a third-place league finish and a 17-11 overall ledger. The Phoenix improved by seven games in his two seasons there.   Baldwin’s one season at Division II Lincoln saw the Blue Tigers lead the conference in defensive field goal percentage while boasting the league player of the year.   Baldwin played collegiately at Northwestern where he graduated in 1994. He started four seasons for the Wildcats, leading the team in steals every year and earning Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year honors as a senior in 1994.

Jermaine Henderson

a s k e t b a l l

  A cornerstone of the men’s basketball program at Miami University for the past 19 years, Jermaine Henderson joined the Missouri State staff on April 20, 2012.   A highly-regarded tactician, recruiter and motivator, Henderson was a 15-year assistant with the RedHawks, including the last seven as associate head coach. He began his playing career with Miami in 1993 and had been a mainstay on the Oxford, Ohio, campus ever since.   After a four-year stint as a player, he worked as a volunteer assistant for coach Charlie Coles in 1997-98 and then moved into a full-time assistant role the following summer. He was promoted from assistant coach to associate head coach in 2005 and was an intricate part of the program’s daily operations, including scouting, administration, budgeting, development, academics and recruiting.   During his tenure as a player and coach, Henderson helped the RedHawks go 329-252 overall and 207-123 in the Mid-American Conference. He has been part of 10 postseason tournament runs, four conference titles and two MAC Tournament championships. MU played in four NCAA Tournaments (1995, 1997, 1999 and 2007) and made one Sweet 16 run in addition to being selected to the NIT in 1994, 1996, 2005 and 2006. Miami was also part of the CBI in 2008 and 2011.   The 37-year-old native of Columbus, Ohio, went 3-3 as interim head coach at Miami during brief stints during the 2007-08 and 2011-12 seasons.   Henderson was a senior on Coles’ first Miami team in 1996-97, which advanced to the NCAA Tournament after winning the MAC Tournament title. He served as team co-captain that year and averaged 8.3 points and 3.4 rebounds with 16 starts. He completed his 89-game playing career with 86 three-pointers which ranked No. 8 in school history at the time. He also was a two-time recipient of the program’s Jamie Mercurio Award, the team’s most meaningful postseason award which is presented annually to the RedHawks player who best demonstrates courage and perseverance.   Henderson coached 33 All-MAC players, including 11 first-team picks, and ten 1,000-point scorers. He also helped mentor two MAC Players of the Year and All-Americans Michael Bramos (2009) and Wally Szczerbiak (1999).   Henderson earned Street & Smith’s All-America recognition over his final two seasons and averaged 22.4 points, 9.6 rebounds and 8.1 assists as a prep senior. He was also a two-time all-state, all-conference, all-district and all-city selection.

The Screaming Eagles won the 2012 GLVC Tournament title and advanced to the NCAA Division II Tournament. USI was 72-16 during Tilmon’s three seasons at the Evansville school with 24 wins in all three campaigns while producing nine all-conference picks and three All-Americans.   Tilmon started his collegiate career as a player at Hiawassee Junior College in Madisonville, Tenn., before three seasons at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. At 6-foot-7, he was a three-year starting forward and center for the Salukis, ending his career as SIU’s 13th all-time leading shot blocker with 58. He ranked among the MVC’s top five shot blockers each of his last two seasons.   He played 82 games in his career in Carbondale and scored 605 points. The Salukis were 20-13 and advanced to the second round of the 2000 NIT during Tilmon’s senior year where he played alongside former MSU assistant Kent Williams that season.   After his playing days at SIU, Tilmon spent five years playing professionally in Europe with stops in Austria, and the Netherlands.

Sam McMahon

a s k e t b a l l

  Sam McMahon was named the program’s director of basketball operations on June 11, 2012 after serving the previous two years as the Bears’ video coordinator. He replaced Trevyor Fisher who stepped down from the position on April 16, 2012 after seven years.   A standout prep player at Jefferson City (Mo.) High, McMahon spent a year at Bridgton (Maine) Academy and then played four years at the University of Delaware (2004-08).   During his time at Delaware, McMahon earned four letters, was team captain his senior season (2007-08) and earned Colonial Athletic Association All-Academic second team honors twice. He earned a spot on the CAA Commissioner’s Honor Roll and averaged 10.4 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists his junior season. He ranked second in the CAA in free-throw percentage (.840) his senior campaign and was third in three-point shooting (.444). He scored 20 or more points five times during his collegiate career, reeled off a streak of 16 straight double-figure scoring games, and earned his team’s Most-Improved Award his junior year.   On his way to earning a degree in Sports Management (May 2008), McMahon was also on the Dean’s List at Delaware and played in over 100 games. After his tenure with the Blue Hens, he spent three months interning at Wilmington University in New Castle, Del., working on scouting, fundraising and video coordination.   He later landed an assistant coaching spot at Central Methodist University in Fayette, Mo., and spent two years at CMU, helping the team to a combined 52-15 record in that span. Central Methodist made a pair of NAIA National Tournament appearances, claimed a Heart of America Conference regular-season title in 2009-10 and led the nation in three-point accuracy (.423) in 2009-10. CMU was 24-8 in 2009-10, finished with a No. 13 national ranking, and gave up just 60.7 points per game.   McMahon earned his Master of Education from MSU in May 2010 (4.0 GPA).   The 28-year-old joined the MSU staff in 2010-11 for coach Cuonzo Martin and was part of the Bears’ 26-9 season that culminated in a 15-3 MVC record and the school’s first-ever Valley regular-season title for the Bears.   He has worked more than a dozen basketball camps and clinics since 2008, and his duties include academic monitoring of players, directing team travel, practice coordination, game equipment and budgeting.   McMahon and the former Holly Wade were married on Sept. 8, 2012.

video coordinator

  After four years as a permanent fixture at Missouri State games as a team manager, Cody Seidel joined the Bears’ full-time ranks in June as the squad’s video coordinator.   Seidel replaced Sam McMahon in that role when McMahon accepted Missouri State’s position as director of basketball operations. As video coordinator, he coordinates the Bears’ video exchange, breaks down MSU and opponents’ game film, produces highlight and motivational reels for the team, and assists with summer camps. He also works closely with the coaches and team academic counselors, assists with team academic oversight, and provides team support during both office hours and practices.   A native of Jefferson City, Mo., Seidel joined Missouri State in September of 2008 as team manager. He spent four seasons with the club and was named head manager for first-year head coach Paul Lusk for the 2011-12 season. His efforts in that capacity helped make him an easy choice to fill the video coordinator role after helping coordinate practice and travel needs, equipment, film breakdown and mentoring the Bears’ staff of student managers.   He earned his B.S. Ed. in secondary mathematics from Missouri State in May 2012 after completing student-teaching requirements at Ozark (Mo.) High School and Springfield’s Parkview High. He is also a product of the rigorous MSU Honors College, placing him in distinct company among Missouri State alumni.   He attended Helias High School in Jefferson City where he was a varsity football standout for the Crusaders and Coach Chris Hentges. He also was active within the Jefferson City sports community, working as a baseball umpire, field maintenance coordinator and summer camp counselor for various Jeff City Parks and Recreation programs.   The 22-year-old is also active in a number of local charity and service organizations, including work with Habitat for Humanity, the MSU Lutheran Student Center, Kappa Mu Epsilon and Maroon Madness, among others.

Moats Resume Summary

l

issouri State University’s search for its new director of athletics concluded May 28, 2009, with the introduction of Kyle Moats as the University’s 10th A.D. Moats came to the University after serving as associate athletics director for national marketing at the University of Louisville since 2005.   Moats began his duties at Missouri State in July 2009, replacing Bill Rowe, who retired after spending 27 years as Missouri State’s top athletics administrator and more than a half century at the university as a student, coach and administrator.   In a busy first year on the job, Moats wasted little time in laying groundwork for the future of Missouri State Athletics. From day one he emphasized the importance of fostering a strategic vision in the current landscape of intercollegiate athletics by involving all corners of the campus community in developing a long-range plan for the MSU Athletics. Moats played a key role in Missouri State’s new partnership with Nelligan Sports Marketing (NSM), announced in February 2010. The agreement will result in the outsourcing of the departments’ marketing and corporate sales operations while maximizing revenue potential for MSU Athletics. Additionally, Moats was instrumental in MSU’s negotiations for a new multi-year television contract with KY3, Inc.   Year two for Moats in Springfield saw Missouri State finish second in the 2010-11 MVC All-Sports Trophy standings--its best finish in five years. Conference titles by men’s basketball, women’s swimming and softball, as well as postseason tournament berths for both MSU basketball programs highighted the Bears’ year. In 2011-12, Moats’ third year at the helm, Missouri State enjoyed its finest campaign in nearly a decade, capturing the Missouri Valley Conference AllSports Trophy for just the fourth time. The Bears won Valley titles in women’s swimming and diving, women’s indoor track and field, women’s basketball and women’s golf this year along with a co-championship in men’s soccer. Additionally, four MSU teams advanced to postseason play, including NCAA Tournament appearances in volleyball, women’s golf and baseball programs. Prior to his arrival in Springfield, Moats spent four years as associate athletics director for national marketing at Louisville. In that capacity, he coordinated the Cardinals’ efforts in national awareness, marketing, branding and group ticket sales. He also worked closely with Nelligan, which manages the exclusive marketing rights for Cardinal Athletics. Moats oversaw the Louisville band and spirit squads as the liaison with student government and student spirit groups.   Prior to joining the Louisville staff, Moats served as senior associate athletic director for two years at Marquette University, where he oversaw the Golden Eagles’ Blue and Gold Fund, media relations, ticket operations, special events, licensing, radio, television, marketing and promotions and sponsorships with NSM.   He also worked 14 years in the University of Kentucky athletics department, including his last three there as associate athletics director for marketing (2000-02).   A native of Dixon, Ill., Moats is a 1988 graduate of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville with a bachelor’s degree in physical education. Moats was a three-year letterwinner in golf and a student assistant basketball coach for the Cougars from 1985-88. He earned a master’s degree in sports management from the University of Kentucky in 2001.   Moats and his wife, Leeann, have two children, Kirk and Lauren.

ith a $30 million gift from Missouri State alumnus and Springfield, Mo.-based hotel developer John Q Hammons, the long-time dream of a new home for the Missouri State Bears and Lady Bears and an iconic tribute to MSU intercollegiate athletics has become a reality. JQH Arena features a seating capacity of 11,000 - including 50 courtside seats - the Grand Entrance, 24 suites, PRIME Overtime Club and other amenities. The design also includes shell space for home locker rooms, offices and a training room, which can be completed at a later date. For now, the current Hammons Student Center facilities will be used for these functions, with a connecting corridor to JQH Arena. JQH Arena has already had a profound impact on the Bears’ and Lady Bears’ recruiting efforts, putting the MSU basketball facilities on par with the top Division I schools in the country. The arena is a premier basketball facility that will continue to give Missouri State an overwhelming home-court advantage, making the Bears’ and Lady Bears’ games the place to be in Springfield.

Turner Court has long been on the wish list of the MSU coaching staffs to ease the tight practice schedule for the two basketball teams and MSU volleyball in the main arena of HSC.

Physical development of more than 350 student-athletes to increase athletic performance, decrease the chance or severity of injury and enhance sport-specific athletics development are the goals of Missouri State Strength and Conditioning. Head strength coach Terry Sauerbry supervises the 7,200-squarefoot Plaster Strength Center that is utilized by all 16 sports. Sauerbry and his staff guide the student-athletes through programs designed to improve individual skills and overall team performance. The programs integrate all phases of development, including free weights, multi-joint exercises, plyometrics, conditioning, flexibility, speed and nutrition. The strength and conditioning staff works with coaches and Athletic Medical and Rehabilitation Services to develop programs suited for each sport and its student-athletes. Areas of concern in each participant are identified and a strength program is put in place to address all items with the ultimate goal of improving competitive performance. Located adjacent to the Turner Family Practice Court inside Hammons Student Center, the Jim D. Morris Family Strength and Conditioning Center is the primary strength and conditioning facility of both Missouri State basketball programs. Under the direction of Prevention, Rehabilitation and Physical Performance Coordinator Mitch Hauschildt, the Bears and Lady Bears have access to state-of-the-art training programs and equipment.

A NEW ERA BEGINS   A new era of Missouri State basketball dawned in 2011-12 as first-year head coach Paul Lusk was introduced to MSU faithful at a press conference on April 1, 2011. The Bears’ 17th head coach spent the previous seven years at Purdue, but he was no stranger to the Missouri Valley Conference basketball or MSU fans. Lusk played three seasons at Southern Illinois and later served as an assistant coach just down I-44 at Missouri Southern State University.   His first priorities upon his arrival in Springfield were to reaffirm commitments from the four players already signed to attend Missouri State and begin finalizing the roster for his debut season. He was successful in both ventures. The three incoming freshmen -- Christian Kirk, Drew Wilson and Dorrian Williams -- all honored their National Letters of Intent, along with juco transfer Jarmar Gulley. He then filled the remaining scholarships with juco standout Anthony Downing, who went on to earn a spot on the 2012 MVC All-Newcomer Team, Michael Bizoukas, a one-year senior transfer from DePaul who led The Valley in assists and assist-to-turnover ratio, and juco big man Corbin Thomas.   Despite losing four starters from the 2010-11 MVC championship squad and being picked a distant sixth in the MVC preseason poll, Lusk guided the 2011-12 Bears to a third-place finish in the Missouri Valley Conference. He also helped the Bears tie a school record for most road wins and finished 16-16 overall with arguably the toughest non-conference schedule in the program’s history.   Likewise, Lusk helped motivate and maximize the performance of the team’s Caleb Patterson earned a spot on the MVC’s Most-Improved Team. The 6-foot-11 senior was second on the team in scoring (12.2) and shot 81.3 percent from the FT line.

Two veteran players -- Isaiah Rhine and Nathan Scheer -- were honored with MVC Scholar-Athlete second team distinction, while Keith Pickens established himself as one of the MVC’s top defensive players in his return to the MSU rotation and finished fourth on the team in rebounding.   Newcomers Downing, Gulley and Bizoukas claimed MVC Newcomer of the Week honors eight times in 16 weeks, the secondhighest total by one school in league history. Downing was named to the MVC AllNewcomer squad and was in the running for the league’s top newcomer honor after he scored 13.1 points per game in conference play -One-year transfer Michael Bizoukas led the MVC in asthe most by an MVC rookie. sists and assist-to-turnover ratio for his senior year.

Major All-America Team. He was ranked in the preseason as the No. 27 player by BasketballProspectus.com, No. 38 by CBSSports. com; and No. 20 by YahooSports.com. He was also No. 3 on Jeff Isenberg’s list of Wooden Award List snubs. n  Missouri State received a special NCAA waiver to play a benefit exhibition game at Division II Missouri Southern on Nov. 5 in Joplin. The double-header with the women’s teams from the two schools raised more than $40,000 to assist the tornado recovery efforts in Joplin and provide support for the Missouri Southern Foundation’s Tornado Emergency Relief Fund. n  The Bears were picked sixth in the MVC Preseason Poll, the lowest prediction for a defending Valley champion since Creighton (picked ninth) in 1991-92. Like CU, which finished sixth in 1991-92, the Bears wound up three spots higher than projected, going 9-9 in league play to finish in a five-way tie for third place. n  Weems was the only player in the nation to enter the 201112 season as his league’s active leader in scoring, rebounding, 3-pointers and blocked shots.

Bizoukas became the first MSU player to lead the league in both assists (5.4) and assist-to-turnover ratio (2.95) and became the first Bear since Arnold Bernard (1991) to lead The Valley in assists.   Lusk’s inaugural campaign was highlighted by a 4-0 start that included one-sided road wins at Nevada and Arkansas State, both preseason favorites in their respective leagues. The Bears’ 77-46 win at Arkansas State on Nov. 15 was the school’s first 30-point road win since Charlie Spoonhour’s squad defeated Valparaiso 8046 on Feb. 23, 1987.   The Bears came within an eyelash of beating Big East power and eventual NCAA Tournament qualifier West Virginia in the Las Vegas Classic on Dec. 22. The Mountaineers got away with a double dribble in the deciding seconds of regulation and took advantage of the oversight by draining a desperation 3-pointer from the left wing to force overtime. An 18-point outing by Patterson was spoiled in the 70-68 loss to the Mountaineers. Patterson was back in top form the next night against fellow NCAA participant St. Mary’s to score 18 more en route to earning Vegas Classic All-Tournament honors.   The defending MVC champs then opened conference play with a 12-point win at No. 19 Creighton on Dec. 18, the team’s first Top 25 win since 2008 and first-ever road win over a ranked opponent. The 77-65 decision saw Weems score a career-high 31 points, including 25 points in the second half, while Downing scored 26 to shock the 17,665 fans at Omaha’s Century Link Center.   The Bears rode that momentum into a 4-1 start in the league before a last-second loss at UNI on Jan. 13 started a three-game MVC skid. The losing streak included a home overtime loss to Evansville and a 66-65 near-miss against No. 18 Creighton at JQH Arena. MSU would later avenge the Northern Iowa loss on Jan. 28 with its first-ever win over the Panthers at JQH. MSU then won three of its first four games in February to sit at an enviable 9-6 in conference play with three Valley games remaining.   However, a visit from eventual conference champion and No. 24-ranked Wichita State on Feb. 15 started a five-game losing streak to close out the season. The fateful stretch included a 73-67 loss to Old Dominion on ESPNU in the BracketBusters series and a third loss of the season to Evansville in the MVC Tournament quarterfinals in St. Louis.   Close calls and tight finishes became the team’s calling card in 2011-12. The Bears matched a school-record five overtime games and had 17 games decided by single digits. MSU’s 12 single-digit losses were the program’s most since 2002. Likewise, 13 MSU opponents played in postseason tournaments, including five in the NCAA Tournament and four that played in the NIT.   The Bears finished with an RPI of 128 and a non-conference strength of schedule of 93, while finishing fourth in the MVC in home attendance average (7,050). And despite parting with four memorable seniors, including the program’s No. 2 all-time scorer in Weems, MSU’s future looks promising.

2012-13 Men’s Basketball Guide

STATISTICALLY SPEAKING n  Michael Bizoukas became the first MSU player since 1991 (Arnold Bernard) to lead the MVC in assists. The senior transfer from DePaul distributed 174 scoring passes (5.44), the eighth-highest season total in MSU history. His 2.95 assist-to-turnover ratio also led the league and ranked No. 5 nationally. He was the second MSU player to lead the MVC in assist-to-turnover ratio (Justin Fuehrmeyer in 2008). n  Bizoukas finished 5th in the nation in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.95) and was 34th among all Division I players in assists (5.44) per game. n  Kyle Weems ranked among the nation’s top 250 players in four statistical categories: 149th in scoring (15.6), 170th in rebounding (7.2), 202nd in field goal percentage (.414) and 236th in threepointers per game (1.91). n  MSU topped 100,000 in home attendance for the fourth straight season and seventh time in eight seasons. The Bears’ home average of 7,050 was down 545 a game from the previous season, but ranked fourth in the MVC. n  Coach Paul Lusk’s 16 wins in his first season at MSU matched the sixth-best victory total by a Bears’ sideline boss in his inaugural campaign. n  Kyle Weems became the first player in MVC history to eclipse 1,800 career points, 800 rebounds and 200 three-pointers. He finished 19th on The Valley career scoring list (1,868), 36th in rebounding (844) and 17th in 3-pointers (240). n  The Bears ranked 128th in the final 2011-12 RPI, but had the 93rd-best non-conference strength of schedule. n  Over the last two seasons, the Bears have committed just 700 turnovers in 67 games (10.45 per game), which ranks 7th among all Division I programs. Only Wisconsin (8.27), Purdue (9.55), Northwestern (9.98), Northern Iowa (10.08), South Dakota State (10.23) and Notre Dame (10.37) have had fewer turnovers in that span. NOTEWORTHY n  Missouri State won half of the MVC’s Newcomer of the Week awards this season, claiming the honor eight times in 16 weeks. Anthony Downing (4), Jarmar Gulley (2) and Michael Bizoukas (2) accounted for the Bears’ honors, the second-highest total by a single team ever (Creighton had 10 in 2007-08). Since the inception of the weekly award in 2003-04, MSU had earned the honor just eight total times prior to this season. n  By December, all four MSU seniors -- Kyle Weems, Caleb Patterson, Isaiah Rhine and Michael Bizoukas -- had earned their undergraduate degrees. n  With a season-opening 68-46 win at Nevada, the Bears improved to 7-0 all-time in Sears BracketBusters return games. n  A year after finishing 7th in the nation out of 336 Division I programs in fewest turnovers per game (10.3), MSU ranked 9th (10.6) out of 338 teams this season. The Bears turned the ball over 10 times or less in 17 games and led the MVC in fewest turnovers. n  Missouri State’s bench matched or out-scored 23 of the Bears’ 32 opponents this season and accounted for 32.1 percent of the team’s scoring. n  MSU was 1-2 against Top 25 opponents this season, but faced three ranked foes for just the third time in school history (198889 and 1998-99). MSU picked up its first-ever road win against a ranked team on Dec. 28 with a 77-65 victory at No. 19 Creighton.

  Rhine racked up 105 career games for the Maroon and White, threw down the first-ever dunk at JQH Arena, and was an academic all-conference second-team pick his senior season. His consistent presence in the paint and reputation as a reliable teammate will be missed, while his commitment to the program through two coaching changes is a lasting testament to his character.

  A transfer point guard from DePaul, Bizoukas became the first Bear to lead the MVC in assists since 1991 when he averaged 5.44 per game. He was also The Valley leader in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.95) and finished 5th nationally in that category. Likewise, his 174 assists in 2011-12 were the 8th-most in a season ever for the Bears who were 9th in the nation in fewest turnovers per game.

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES GAME 1

GAME 2

  Led by a career-high 17 points by Caleb Patterson, the Bears beat Nevada, 68-46, in Paul Lusk’s premier as MSU head coach.   Anthony Downing scored 12 off the bench for the defending Missouri Valley Conference champions, while Nathan Scheer added 11. Kyle Weems, who sat most of the first half in foul trouble, scored four points, but was picked up by nine points from Jarmar Gulley and eight by Michael Bizoukas.   The Bears forced 14 turnovers, drew six charges and matched the bigger Wolf Pack on the boards, 42-42.   MSU turned a seven-point halftime lead into double figures right out of the second-half gates. Gulley scored on a put-back 30 seconds into the second stanza, and Bizoukas stole the in-bound pass and converted it into two points to give the Bears a 35-24 advantage.   The Bears would only extend their lead from there, pushing the lead to 4927 on a Downing three-pointer at the 13:45 mark and then by 26 points on a Scheer three – his third of the night – with 9:23 remaining.   Nevada (0-1), the WAC preseason favorite, was held to just 13 field goals.   In the first half, MSU had two starters on the bench most of the half in foul trouble and led 31-24 at the intermission. Bailing the Bears out of their early foul issues was Patterson who scored 14 points in the first 20 minutes.   MSU led in the first two minutes, 22 seconds as the Bears knocked down their first four field goal attempts. Nevada made the first shot of the game, a three-pointer from the right wing by Malik Story, but missed its next seven shots to fall behind to the visitors from the Missouri Valley Conference.   The tides turned briefly at the 15:43 mark when MSU standout Weems picked up his second foul and rode out the remainder of the half on the bench along with fellow starter Jarmar Gulley who picked up his second with 12:31 left.   Nevada responded with a 7-0 run to take a 10-9 lead. Patterson broke a Missouri State dry spell of more than four minutes with a jumper at the 13:15 mark to put the Bears back ahead briefly. However, Nevada jumped back ahead 13-11 on a three from Panzer 30 seconds later.   The Bears responded with three straight three-pointers as Keith Pickens, Scheer and Patterson all drained long-range bombs against the Nevada zone over a 90-second span to build a 20-13 lead and later 31-24 at the half.

  Missouri State had four players score in double figures and forced 19 Arkansas State turnovers to turn back the Red Wolves, 77-46, before a small drawing of 2,353 at the Convocation Center.   The Bears got 15 points off the bench from Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week Anthony Downing behind three three-pointers, while Caleb Patterson scored 14 and helped MSU to a 34-12 advantage in points in the paint. Kyle Weems (10) and Michael Bizoukas (11) were also in double figures for MSU (2-0). It was just the third career double-figure scoring effort for the senior Bizoukas, a transfer from DePaul.   After Arkansas State (0-2) cut into a 15-point halftime deficit with a 7-2 run to start the second half, the visitors responded with a 10-2 run of their own and never looked back. Bizoukas and Nathan Scheer hit key three-pointers during that stretch and helped the Bears push ahead 48-30 at the 13:11 mark.   MSU’s biggest lead of the night came on a last-second layup by walk-on Tomie Aromona to make the final margin of 31.   The visitors were led on the boards by Weems and Bizoukas with six rebounds apiece. Bizoukas also had a game-high 5 assists.   A-State, the preseason favorite in the Sun Belt West Division, was led by Malcoln Kirkland with 14 points and Trey Finn with 13.   The Bears’ bench outscored the ASU reserves by a 31-6 margin and MSU out-rebounded the home club by a 41-36 margin.   Missouri State’s 36-21 halftime lead was paced by eight first-half points from Patterson and Bizoukas, while the Bears have out-rebounded the Red Wolves by a 25-18 margin.   The Bears, who never trailed in the contest, hopped out to a 12-5 lead in the first five minutes after a three-pointer by Bizoukas in transition.   Arkansas State climbed back within 20-16 at the 9:34 mark, the Bears responded with a 12-0 outburst over the next four minutes to regain a doublefigure advantage, 32-16.   It was MSU’s ninth straight win in the series against the Red Wolves.

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES  GAME 3

GAME 4

  Missouri State got 11 points and 8 rebounds from both starting forwards and overcame a slow start to overtake visiting Emporia State, 71-45, as the Bears improved to 3-0 on the season.   Kyle Weems and Jarmar Gulley led the home team in scoring and rebounding, while Caleb Patterson and Michael Bizoukas scored 9 apiece to help the MSU cause.   The Bears stormed out of the locker room running to start the second half. After clinging to a 33-28 advantage at the intermission, the Bears extended their lead to 43-32 just over two minutes into the second stanza on a driving layup from Bizoukas. The DePaul transfer finished 3-for-4 from the field, had 7 assists and committed no turnovers for MSU which committed just 9 mishaps on the evening.   After a three by Emporia State’s Antonio DiMaria at the 17:32 mark made it a 43-35 game, the Bears went on a 19-3 run over the next 11 minutes, 17 seconds to ice the win. A jumper by Isaiah Rhine finished off the Bears’ outburst and put the game out of reach for the Division II visitors who made things interesting in the early going.   In the first half, ESU held its own against the defending Missouri Valley Conference champions. A layup by Troy Pierce with just over five minutes left in the opening period gave the Hornets a 28-22 lead at the end of a 10-3 run by the visitors.   The Bears, however, closed out the first half on an 11-0 run to go into the break with a 33-28 lead.   MSU shot 54 percent from the field in the second half and was 24-for-52 (.462) for the game. Seven different Bears hit three-pointers to help them go 9-for-23 (.391) for the game. Paul Lusk’s team was also 14-for-21 (.667) at the line, overcoming a 6-for-11 first half at the charity stripe with solid free-throw shooting down the stretch. MSU also held a 37-26 rebounding advantage and forced 12 turnovers.   Ten different Bears showed up in the scoring column on the night the 2010-11 MVC Championship rings and banner were presented. MSU’s bench outscored Emporia’s, 28-12.

  Kyle Weems had 17 points and 12 rebounds to lead Missouri State as the Bears improved to 4-0 with a 69-64 overtime win over visiting Tulsa.   Weems’ biggest shot of the night came with 1:29 left in the extra period, a three-pointer on the heels of a Tulsa put-back by Joe Richard that put the Golden Hurricane up 64-62. Weems’ shot brought the lead back to the home club, which hit three of its six three-pointers in overtime. MSU would score the final seven points of the game and extend its non-conference home winning streak to 22 games.   It was Weems’ 11th career double-double.   Joining him in double figures for MSU was Caleb Patterson with a team-high 19 points and newcomer Jarmar Gulley with 16. Michael Bizoukas also contributed 8 points and 7 assists, while Anthony Downing poured in 9 points.   Downing was the unsung hero of the night, collecting 8 points in crunch time, including the game-tying three-pointer with four seconds left in regulation. In overtime, he put the Bears ahead 62-58 with another three-point bomb, and then sealed the win with a driving layup off a Tulsa turnover in the final minute.   The Bears forced 21 Tulsa turnovers and held the visitors to 21-for-52 (.400) from the field.   For its part, Tulsa out-rebounded MSU 43-37, forced 11 turnovers and turned to standout Jordan Clarkson for its clutch plays. Clarkson finished with a game-high 23 points, including 15 in the second half, as one of three Golden Hurricane players in double-figures.   Scottie Haralson had 15 behind five three-pointers, while Kodi Maduka had 11 points and a game-high 13 rebounds for the visitors.   After Downing’s three-pointer tied the game with four ticks left in the game, Clarkson launched a three at the horn that caromed off the rim to force extra time. Patterson made the first basket of the extra period on a 23-foot threepointer just over 30 seconds in. Downing made it 62-58 with his second three of the run, before Tulsa reeled off six straight points.   With the game tied and 1:44 on the clock, D.J. Magley stepped to the line for Tulsa and missed a pair of free throws. His second miss was dunked back by Richard to put Tulsa up for the last time.   Weems responded with the clutch three, and the Bears added a pair of free throws and Downing’s driving layup down the stretch to seal the win..

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES GAME 5

GAME 6

  A late rally by the Missouri State Bears fell short in a 68-63 road loss to Oral Roberts here in MSU’s first defeat of the 2011-12 campaign.   Down 62-52 with 1:24 remaining, the Bears (4-1) knocked down three threepointers in the final 39 seconds to make things close down the stretch. ORU (5-2), however, had 12 free throw attempts in that span, making eight, including a pair of key makes by Warren Niles with 4.7 ticks left after MSU had trimmed its deficit to 66-63 on a trey by Anthony Downing.   MSU whittled a 14-point halftime deficit to eight five minutes into the second period after a layup by Christian Kirk made it 40-32. However, the Bears managed just two field goals over the next five minutes, while ORU built its advantage to 15 points after a three by Roderick Pearson made it 49-34.   Kyle Weems, who scored a game-high 22 points, brought the Bears back from there as he reeled off four field goals over a span of three-and-a-half minutes to begin the MSU rally. Weems’ trey at the 3:47 mark made it 57-50.   ORU stretched its lead back to 10 before Weems made it an eight-point game with 72 seconds left. Weems’s left-wing jumper before a three by Michael Bizoukas 33 seconds later made it a six-point contest, 63-57.   When Weems made it 65-60 on his fourth trey of the night, ORU opened the door by missing three of its next four charity shots, which Downing took advantage of with 5.3 ticks left. The juco transfer from Atchison, Kan., made it 66-63 on a clutch trey from the left side.   Despite heavy pressure on the in-bound pass, the Bears could not come up with a steal and had to send Niles back to the line where he sealed it for ORU.   The Bears held ORU to 8-for-25 (.320) shooting in the second half after surrendering 14 field goals in the first 20 minutes. The difference came at the foul line where the Golden Eagles had 16 more attempts and 12 more makes than MSU in a contest where the home team was whistled for just 12 fouls.   Caleb Patterson scored 14 points to join Weems in double figures, and Keith Pickens tabbed a team-high 8 rebounds off the bench.   Niles led four ORU players in double figures with 19 points.   The slow start in the first half saw the Bears in a 36-22 hole at the intermission after matching the Golden Eagles punch for punch in the first seven minutes. MSU took an 11-9 lead on a layup by Christian Kirk at the 13:34 mark to keep the early momentum going. However, from there, ORU reeled off 13 straight points over a five-and-a-half minute span to build 22-11 advantage and never trailed again.

  Missouri State spotted New Mexico the first 10 points of the game and tried to dig their way out of the early hole the rest of the way in a 76-60 loss here in the Mountain West-Missouri Valley Conference Challenge.   MSU fell behind by as many as 24 points in a first half that saw the Bears commit 10 turnovers and give up seven three-pointers to the Lobos (6-2). The Bears trimmed their deficit to 16 at the intermission thanks to a nice late run that included a three-pointer and jumper by Caleb Patterson who finished with 9 points.   The Bears were led by Jarmar Gulley who was 8-for-9 from the field and notched 17 points and a game-high 8 rebounds off the bench. Kyle Weems added 11, and Anthony Downing scored 10 with 7 assists. Nathan Scheer also added 8 points for Missouri State.   Kendall Williams scored a game-high 19 for the Lobos who had four players in double figures.   MSU climbed back within 45-33 on a Gulley dunk at the 14:35 mark of the second half after the Bears came out of the locker room with a renewed sense of urgency. Later in the half, the Bears held New Mexico without a field goal for more than six minutes to stay close, and a Weems’ three-pointer with 3:16 to go made it a a 67-56 contest.   But with a 35-5 free throw deficit, the Bears could climb not climb the mountain any closer the rest of the way, despite a hard-nosed effort in the second stanza.   The Bears finished 26-for-62 (.419) from the field, scoring five more field goals than New Mexico, which was 21-for-55 (.382).   For their part, the Lobos knocked down 10-of-22 (.455) three-pointers, compared to 5-of-25 (.200) from the visitors who were just 3-of-5 at the foul line.   MSU finished with 12 turnovers and was out-rebounded 44-34 by New Mexico which was 24-for-35 (.686) at the foul line..

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES  GAME 7

GAME 8

  Oklahoma State (6-2) made 24 second-half free throws and erased a doublefigure deficit to pull off a stunning 72-67 win over Missouri State here Wednesday, snapping the Bears’ 22-game non-conference home win streak.   LeBryan Nash led four Cowboys in double figures with 19 points and 8 rebounds, while Keiton Page scored 15.   Missouri State (4-3) dropped its third straight game and let a 12-point lead slip away in the second half. A Jarmar Gulley three-pointer with 17:26 left made it a 42-30 contest to extend a 14-point halftime advantage.   But, OSU stormed back with a 17-5 run over the next five minutes to tie the game, 47-47. During that span, Nash scored seven points, and the Cowboys converted a pair of and-one opportunities.   From there, the lead changed hands five times with Jarmar Gulley mounting the Bears’ attack and accounting for nine of his 19 points during a solid fourminute surge by the home club. With 8:18 on the clock, Gulley got to the line for a potential three-point opportunity that put MSU on top 58-54. He missed the bonus opportunity, and Page hit one of the game’s most-important shots with a three-point dagger under duress to trip the Bears’ lead to 58-57.   There were four ties over the next five minutes, but the Bears never surrendered the lead. And, when Michael Bizoukas made one of two free throws at the 4:08 mark, it gave Missouri State a 67-65 lead. Unfortunately, the Bears would never score again, and OSU was the beneficiary of five crunch-time fouls, making 7-of-10 at the line, to steal the victory.   MSU was led by Kyle Weems who had game highs 24 points and 12 rebounds. Gulley added 19 points in his return to the MSU starting lineup.   The Bears scored two more field goals than Oklahoma State, going 21-for-51 (.412) from the field with six three-pointers. OSU had 15 more FT chances.   In the first half, Weems, scored 15 points on 4-for-6 from the field with a pair of three-pointers and six rebounds. There were five ties and three lead changes in the opening stanza, none more significant than a Weems-generated spark with just over five minutes to go in the half.   After OSU jumped ahead 21-18 on a bucket by Reger Dewell at the 5:40 mark, Weems was fouled on the way to the bucket, then shoved after the play by Markel Brown, resulting in a technical. Weems made all four free throws, then stole the ball from OSU on its next possession for a coast-to-coast dunk. The Bears led by as many as nine after that and went into the break up seven.

  Behind the efforts of Anthony Downing, who scored a game-high 20 points, Missouri State (5-3) snapped a three-game losing streak with a 68-60 road win at Arkansas-Little Rock here Saturday.   Downing led three Bears in double figures, as Caleb Patterson added 18 points, and Kyle Weems notched 14 points and a game-high 8 rebounds. MSU shot a season-high 54.1 percent (20-for-37) and knocked down 22-of-28 (.786) free throws to pick up its third road win of the season.   After leading 29-22 at the break, MSU built its advantage to double figures with 15:34 to go on a layup by Patterson that made it a 37-26 game.   However, starting at the 15-minute mark, UALR reeled off seven straight points to make it 37-33. MSU then responded to the Trojan run with a short jumper by Weems to end the threat for the time being.   Jarmar Gulley and Downing handled the pressure down the stretch, including a three-minute stretch where Downing reeled off nine straight points for Missouri State.   Weems brought the dagger with his only three of the night with 1:51 to go. That bucket made it a 63-53 game, and the Trojans never threatened again.   Downing finished 10-for-10 at the line, while Michael Bizoukas added 9 assists with just one turnover. The Bears had 11 turnovers as a team.   UALR was led by Will Neighbour who scored 15, while Chuck Guy scored 13 off the bench. The Trojans were 23-for-54 (.426) from the field, but just 9-of-14 (.643) at the line.   In the first half, the Bears scored the game’s first bucket on a pull-up by Weems, but then went five minutes without a field goal, falling behind 10-2 before a Downing floater at the 13:01 mark.   A three-pointer by UALR’s Neighbour with 12:30 remaining in the first period put the Trojans up 13-4 before MSU began mounting a solid comeback midway through the half. A traditional three-point play by Isaiah Rhine got the Bears rolling on an 18-5 run that included three-pointers by Patterson, Downing and Gulley to put MSU ahead 22-18 with just under seven minutes to go in the period, and the Bears would never trail again the rest of the night.   Patterson scored four of MSU’s next eight points before the intermission as the Bears pushed ahead 29-22 at the break.

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES GAME 9

GAME 10

  Missouri State shot 60 percent from the field and used a timely 17-0 run in the first half to cruise to a 78-55 win over visiting Kennesaw State in the first round of the Continental Tire Las Vegas classic.   Kyle Weems was 9-for-11 from the field to lead the Bears with 22 points and game-high 8 rebounds. It was his 16th career 20-point effort and third in the last five ball games. Caleb Patterson pitched in 12 points for the home club, while Michael Bizoukas set a JQH Arena record at the time with 11 assists.   The Bears took control early in the game, going ahead 7-5 on a layup by Corey Copeland at the 15-minute mark. However, the visiting Owls came to play and reeled off eight straight points in a three-minute span capped by a Delbert Love three-pointer to put MSU on its heels, 13-7.   But Missouri State, which defeated its 23rd non-conference foe at JQH Arena in 24 tries, then reeled off the game’s next 17 points. Six different MSU players scored during the nearly-six-minute run, and MSU was never threatened again.   Kennesaw State, which is in the middle of a five-game road trip over 10 days, broke the scoreless streak with a Markeith Cummings trey at the 5:46 mark that made it a 24-16 contest. Anthony Downing then scored MSU’s next nine points, and Weems closed out the half with five straight points to make it a 40-22 contest at the break.   Coach Paul Lusk’s squad came out of the locker room with the first six points of the second half to push the lead to 24, and then doubled up the Owls, 52-26, on a Patterson three-pointer at the 16-minute mark. The Bears were able to maintain a 20-point margin the rest of the way.   Downing finished with 9 points and 4 rebounds to lead the MSU reserves, who outscored Kennesaw’s bench 28-6. Copeland added 7, while Christian Kirk and Isaiah Rhine contributed 6 apiece from reserve roles.   The Bears knocked down 31 field goals and finished 31-for-52 (.596), including a 7-for-17 (.412) effort from beyond the arc. MSU was 9-of-10 at the free throw line and out-rebounded KSU by a 36-22 margin, holding the visitors to just 9 total boards in the second stanza.   Cummings scored a game-high 24 points for Kennesaw State, which dropped its fifth straight. Spencer Dixon added 17 points for the Owls behind three threepointers, pushing the senior past 1,000 points for his career.   The Owls turned the ball over just 7 times, compared to 9 by the Bears..

  Missouri State built its lead over visiting Texas A&M-Corpus Christi to as many as 26 points in the second half and forced 18 turnovers in a 66-53 victory in the second round of the Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic.   Using a lineup comprised primarily of reserves in the second half, the Bears added to a 41-19 intermission lead midway through the half. Corey Copeland and Christian Kirk accounted for 13 straight MSU points over a five-minute span. An impressive drive through the lane by Copeland at the 5:49 mark made it a 61-35 game to give the home squad its biggest lead of the night.   MSU scored just one field goal the rest of the way, and the Islanders had a dunk and four threes in the final 5:15 to make the final count respectable.   Terence Jones scored a game-high 19 points behind five treys for TAMU-CC, which dropped its sixth straight since a Nov. 22 overtime win over Utah State.   The Bears were led by Kirk, a true freshman, with 13 points, and Caleb Patterson who matched Kirk’s 13 points in just 14 minutes of action. Kyle Weems tallied 11 points and 7 rebounds, and Copeland scored 11. Isaiah Rhine posted a game-high 8 rebounds off the bench, while notching 7 points.   In the first 20 minutes, Missouri State forced 13 turnovers and shot an even 50 percent from the field. Patterson was 5-of-7 from the field in the opening stanza to tally 13 points early.   Missouri State put together a 17-2 run over an eight-minute stretch in the first half to lead by as many as 23 before the break. The Bears, who never trailed in the game, turned a 15-8 advantage into a 32-10 lead with the starters hitting on all cylinders on both ends of the floor.   Texas A&M-Corpus Christi finished with 18 mishaps in all. The Islanders were 17-for-50 (.340) from the field, including 10-of-23 (.435) from long distance, but were a substandard 9-of-17 (.529) at the line.   Missouri State out-rebounded the Islanders from the Southland Conference by a 43-32 margin. The Bears finished 25-for-62 (.403) from the field, despite making half of their 34 shots in the first stanza. MSU was just 4-of-17 (.235) from three-point range with Copeland knocking down a pair of threes. The home squad, which has won three straight, was also 12-for-19 (.632) at the line.

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES  GAME 11

GAME 12

  West Virginia knocked down 10 three pointers and out-rebounded Missouri State by 13 to sneak away with a 70-68 overtime victory over the Bears in the third round of the Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic.   No WVU three was bigger than Gary Browne’s desperation shot at the end of regulation that found nothing but net to tie the game and force extra time. That desperation shot after a brief scramble and a controversial pass from Browne to himself without a whistle, brought the Mountaineers (9-2) all the way back from a 10-point deficit in the final 8:40.   In overtime, both teams were just 2-for-7 from the field, but the Mountaineers held MSU scoreless over the final 3:06 and pulled away with a key offensive board and put-back by Aaron Brown with 69 seconds left in extra time. That basket put West Virginia up 69-68. Another offensive rebound by WVU in the final minute forced MSU to foul with 22.3 seconds left. Darryl Bryant missed the second of two opportunities at the line, giving the Bears new life a chance to win or tie on the final possession of overtime.   On the final possession, Michael Bizoukas missed a three from the left wing, but the Bears battled for the offensive rebound -- just their third of the game -- and called timeout to set up a potential game-tying play. After the timeout, Nathan Scheer ripped to the basket for the potential game-tying layup. He found a seam, but the ball rimmed out just as the horn sounded and leaving the Bears two points short of an upset win over the Big East foe.   Missouri State (7-4), which shot 53.8 percent from the field, was led by Caleb Patterson with 18 points on 8-of-11 shooting, while Kyle Weems added 15 and a team-high 6 rebounds.   The game featured six ties and 12 lead changes.   After a 32-32 tie at the half, the Bears pulled ahead and never trailed in the second stanza, building a 55-45 lead on a three-pointer by Weems from the right wing with 8:40 to play. A Weems’ dunk with 3:44 to play ended a short WVU run and made it a 61-55 game.   And when Scheer grabbed a steal and went coast-to-coast for a clutch layup with 1:02 left, it appeared as if MSU’s 63-58 lead would be enough. However, a leaner by WV’s Browne with 44 ticks left and a Weems’ miss with eight seconds left for the Bears opened the door for Browne’s miracle trey at the horn.   Jarmar Gulley joined Weems and Patterson in double figures with 11 points and 5 rebounds, while Bizoukas dished out 10 assists.

  St. Mary’s out of the West Coast Conference scored 42 points in the paint and got 17 points apiece from Brad Waldow and Matthew Dellavedova to turn back Missouri State, 77-61, in the final round of the Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic.   The Bears were led by Caleb Patterson with 18 points on 8-of-12 shooting, while Jarmar Gulley scored 14, and Kyle Weems added 11 points and a team-high 7 rebounds. MSU dropped its second straight game to wrap its nonconference schedule.   After trailing 33-29 at the half, MSU got a quick layup from Gulley to start the second half to cut the MSU deficit to two. A pair of free throws from Stephen Holt pushed the Gaels’ lead back to four, but a pair of foul shots by Anthony Downing, and a trey by Weems gave the Bears a 36-35 advantage with 18:23 left in the game.   That brief lead would be MSU’s first and only advantage of the contest, as SMC reeled off nine straight points over the span of the next two minutes to pull ahead for good. The Bears would climb back within six points of the lead on six occasions later in the half, including a late run led by a Patterson hook shot with 6:54 to go. But with every MSU run, the Gaels had an answer, and a dunk by Waldow with just under six-and-a-half minutes remaining sealed the deal.   The Bears finished 24-for-54 (.444) from the field, but just 3-of-13 (.231) from long range. MSU was 10-of-11 (.909) at the line and committed just eight turnovers, but were out-rebounded by a 40-32 margin, surrendering 17 secondchance points.   St. Mary’s shot 30-of-66 (.455) from the field and 7-of-22 (.318) from bonus distance, while converting just 10-of-15 (.667) foul shots. Rob Jones had a game-high 10 boards for SMC, while Holt and Jorden Page contributed 16 and 10 points, respectively.   MSU’s bench managed just 18 points on the night, but Downing scored eight, and Tomie Aromona contributed three along with Kirk.

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES GAME 13

GAME 14

  Missouri State got a career-high 31 points from Kyle Weems and topped No. 19 Creighton, 77-65, in the MVC opener for both clubs   Anthony Downing, who was 11-for-14 from the field, also contributed a careerbest 26 for the Bears in his first career start. It was MSU’s sixth straight win over Creighton and the club’s first-ever road win against a ranked opponent.   Doug McDermott posted 19 points and 12 rebounds for CU, which was ranked No. 21 in the AP poll.   The game featured four ties and eight lead changes, but it was a driving layup by Michael Bizoukas with 6:16 to go that gave the Bears the lead for good. From there, Weems knocked down a leaner and a three-pointer over the span of the next minute to push the visitors’ lead to 64-57.   The Bluejays battled back within three after a trey by Josh Jones, his third of the night, and a free throw by McDermott made it 66-63 with 2:18 on the clock.   But the Bears were game down the stretch, and Jarmar Gulley finished at the rim 17 seconds later to push the lead back to five. Downing’s fourth three-pointer of the night with 1:10 remaining proved to be the dagger. Weems went 6-for6 at the line in the final 43 seconds, and the defending MVC champions ended a brief two-game losing streak in style with a solid start to conference play.   Gulley added 12 points for MSU, which shot 55 percent in the second half and finished 29-for-60 (.483) for the game. The Bears were 7-for-17 (.412) from bonus distance -- with six threes in the second half -- and were a sensational 12-for-14 (.857) from the charity stripe.   The Bears were out-rebounded by a 35-34 margin, but got 20 of the 36 total caroms in the second stanza. MSU also turned the ball over just seven times.   The crowd of 17,665 at the Century Link Center -- the third-largest in Creighton history at the time -- saw the home team’s 16-game win streak stopped.   The Bears jumped out to a 14-8 lead in the first five-and-a-half minutes, but Creighton responded with four treys in the span of two-and-a-half minutes after the under-12 media timeout to climb ahead 20-16. Creighton continued the pressure with a bucket by Young and a dunk by Gregory Echenique that ultimately prompted a timeout by the Bears with a 24-16 deficit and 8:19 to play.   Gulley stormed the Bears back with a traditional three-point play, to cut the Bluejays lead to five. In the final four minutes of the opening half, MSU used four steals to climb back within 34-32 at the intermission.

  Missouri State shot a season-best 60.4 percent from the field and got 22 points from a red-hot Kyle Weems to turn back Drake, 72-61.   It was a league-best eighth straight conference win for the Bears who also got 14 points from Jarmar Gulley and 11 from Anthony Downing. Weems, who scored 31 points in Wednesday’s win at No. 19 Creighton, was 10-for-12 from the field with a game-high 9 rebounds.   Drake (8-5, 1-1) got 16 points from Rayvonte Rice, 14 in the first half.   MSU turned its five-point halftime lead into a 41-32 advantage just three-anda-half minutes into the second half. With 16:32 left in the game, a jumper by Downing in transition created a nine-point lead and some breathing room for the Bears. The visitors continued to scrap, and crept back within one point of the lead three more times midway through the second stanza. However, after the under-12-minute media timeout, MSU used a 17-4 run during a seven-minute stretch to pull away for good.   Gulley scored seven points during that run, while Keith Pickens provided key defense and three-points to make it 64-50 with 3:40 to go. Downing and Michael Bizoukas made clutch free throws down the stretch, and the Bears improved to 20-1 all-time at home against Drake.   Pickens finished with 7 points, 8 rebounds and 2 steals to go with a teamhigh 3 assists for MSU, which was 29-for-48 (.604) from the field. Coach Paul Lusk’s team shot an impressive 15-for-23 (.652) in the second half to make the difference. The Bears were also an efficient 5-for-8 (.625) from beyond the arc, a season high, but missed eight free throws in the second half to finish 9-for-17 (.529) for the game. MSU also out-rebounded the Bulldogs by a 32-23 margin, and both sides committed just eight turnovers.   Drake finished 23-for-50 (.460) from the field and 4-of-11 (.364) from bonus distance. Like the Bears, the Bulldogs struggled at the charity stripe with an 11-for-21 (.524) afternoon.   Ben Simons added 14 points for the Bulldogs, while Jordan Clarke tallied 10 points and a team-high six rebounds for the visitors.   In the first half, Weems scored 14 points to help the Bears build a 34-29 advantage. MSU fell behind 16-8 in the first six-and-a-half minutes before reserve Corey Copeland got things going for the home club. Copeland knocked down a three-pointer to cut the Bears’ deficit to five before making it a 16-13 game on a spin move to the basket on the next MSU possession.

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES  GAME 15

GAME 16

  Illinois State put an end to Missouri State’s eight-game Valley winning streak, out-rebounding the first-place Bears by 11 and prevailing 68-60 at JQH Arena.   John Wilkins led three Redbirds in double figures with 15 points, while Tyler Brown and Bryant Allen added 14 apiece. ISU was 10-for-28 (.357) from threepoint range and held snagged 14 offensive boards.   MSU, which had a chance to move into first place by itself after Evansville’s one-point home loss to Wichita State, dropped into a six-way log jam atop the Missouri Valley Conference standings with their first defeat of the year.   Kyle Weems scored a game-high 18 points for the Bears who lost a home league game for the first time since Jan. 30, 2011. Jarmar Gulley added 16 points and 9 rebounds for the home club.   Illinois State, which never trailed, used a steady stream of three-pointers to win its first conference road game of the campaign. After MSU cut a 30-25 halftime deficit to three points on a pair of free throws by Gulley just 11 seconds into the second half, the Redbirds got three-pointers from Brown and Wilkins over the next 78 seconds to push their lead to nine.   Later in the half, the Bears trimmed the deficit to 45-40 after Weems reeled off 12 straight points, and Gulley made one of two free throws at the 8:58 mark. But on ISU’s next possession, the Redbirds snagged three offensive rebounds off missed three-point attempts before Jon Ekey knocked down a dagger of a trey from the right wing to make it 48-40. Less than a minute later, Wilkins dropped in a three from the left corner to make it an 11-point game again.   Still, MSU was able to climb back within 52-47 after a Michael Bizoukas free throw with just 2:42 to go. But, it was simply Illinois State’s night as the Redbirds made 12-of-14 free throws from there to counter three Missouri State three-pointers in the final 40 seconds and close out the win.   The Bears shot a better percentage from the field than the Redbirds, making good on 21-of-57 (.368) attempts, compared to 20-of-57 (.351) by the visitors. But MSU was just 5-of-18 (.278) from three-point range, while Illinois State made 10-of-28 (.357) with five bombs in each half.   Ekey and Jackie Carmichael accounted for 12 and 10 rebounds, respectively, for ISU, including four offensive caroms by Ekey.   The Bears also collected 9 points from reserve Christian Kirk in the post who played 24 minutes in the absence of Caleb Patterson who was recovering from a concussion. Keith Pickens added 8 off the bench, while Bizoukas contributed 8 assists with one turnover.

  Missouri State shot 54 percent and committed just one turnover in the second half to post a solid 69-63, come-from-behind win at Indiana State.   Anthony Downing scored 17, and Kyle Weems notched 14 to lead four Bears in double figures.   It was MSU’s first win in Terre Haute since March 1, 2008, and the improvement to 3-1 in the MVC was not easy for the Bears who trailed 33-26 at the half.   Indiana State lost at the Hulman Center for the first time this season, but led 43-34 with 13:39 to go. The Bears began to make their move shortly thereafter as Weems, Downing and Jarmar Gulley scored baskets on a 6-0 Bears’ run over the next 45 seconds.   Gulley, who finished with 13, gave MSU its first lead of the second half on a layup in transition at the 10:38 mark. A reverse layup by Michael Bizoukas with 8:36 to go gave MSU a three-point lead, before a transition three-pointer by Jordan Printy pulled the Sycamores even, 47-47, with just over eight minutes left.   Bizoukas scored another layup immediately out of the under-eight media timeout to give the Bears a two-point lead again. Over the next five minutes, three-pointers by Downing and Bizoukas pushed the Bears’ edge to 59-50.   On the next ISU possession, Carl Richard threw down a solid, driving dunk for Indiana State to end a three-minute scoring drought. He was fouled on the play to keep the score at 59-52, and MSU was solid down the stretch to hold off a late surge from there. Downing and Gulley combined to go 8-for-10 at the line in the final 43 seconds to seal the win and help the Bears improve to 5-2 on the road this season.   Bizoukas matched a career high with 12 points, and finished with 6 assists and no turnovers. The Bears were 24-for-47 (.511) from the field and 5-of-9 (.556) from bonus distance. MSU finished 16-for-25 (.640) at the line and matched the Sycamores 33-33 on the boards. Perhaps most impressive for MSU was just one second-half turnover, despite 10 in the first stanza.   ISU got 17 points from Dwayne Lathan and 16 from Richard. The Sycamores were 21-for-56 (.375) from the field, 8-of-26 (.308) from three-point range, and 13-for-24 (.542) at the line.   In the first half, a full-court shot at the buzzer by Anthony Downing gave new life to MSU headed into the intermission down 33-26. The desperation shot from beyond Indiana State’s free throw line came just moments after Jake Odum put the Sycamores up by 10 on a drive through the lane.

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES GAME 17

GAME 18

  Missouri State used impressive free throw shooting and solid rebounding to hold off visiting Southern Illinois here, 77-65, as the Bears held on to a share of the Missouri Valley Conference lead.   Jarmar Gulley scored a game-high 18 points to lead four MSU players in double figures. Kyle Weems added 16 points for the Bears, while Caleb Patterson posted 15 in his return to the floor after missing two games with a concussion. Anthony Downing also added 13 off the bench behind an 11-for-12 free-throw effort to help MSU overcome a season-high 20 turnovers.   Coach Paul Lusk’s squad finished 25-for-27 (.926) at the line, including 19for-20 in the second half, and out-rebounded the Salukis by a 33-26 margin. The team’s free throw accuracy was a season-best, while its 10 offensive rebounds was the Bears’ most in seven games.   Starting in his second straight contest, Christian Kirk snagged a game-high 10 boards for Missouri State.   The Salukis were led by Kendal Brown-Surles with 14 points, while the league’s top rebounder Mamadou Seck was held to just 6 boards but tacked on 12 points.   After MSU led by as many as 21 in the first half, the Salukis whittled their deficit to 42-31 at the break. The SIU resurgence continued in the second half with an 11-2 run in the first three minutes and change. Southern trimmed the MSU lead to 44-42 on a steal and layup by Brown-Surles at the 16:52 mark.   The Bears drew up a pick-and-pop three-pointer by Patterson on the ensuing possession to stretch their lead back to five. Just over two minutes later, the home team extended its lead back to double figures as Gulley scored in transition, and Patterson completed a tradtional three-point play at the 13:18 mark.   From there, Missouri State’s lead grew to as many as 14 as Gulley closed out a stretch of seven straight Bears’ points with a three-point play with 7:45 remaining that made it a 61-47 contest.   Coach Chris Lowery, who was roommates with Lusk while the pair were players at Southern Illinois, kept his team in the game with solid defense. The Salukis got three points from Seck and a dunk by Jeff Early with five minutes left to make it a 63-57 contest. But, the Bears were determined and Weems’ trey with 3:37 on the clock extended the home team advantage to 68-57 and seemed to seal the win. January 10, 2012, JQH Arena, Springfield, Mo.

  One can usually count on strange things happening on Friday the 13th, but the fourth straight one-point decision between the Bears and Panthers took the cake for odd endings in a 61-60 UNI win at the McLeod Center.   Caleb Patterson posted a career-high 24 points for MSU on 7-of-8 shooting, with a 3-of-3 from night from three-point range and 7-for-7 effort at the line. Kyle Weems notched a game-high 9 rebounds for the visitors and scored 16.   In a game with 19 lead changes and nine ties, the final two minutes should have been memorable ones for Missouri State, which took a 60-57 lead with 1:49 left on a tough-angle layup by Michael Bizoukas. UNI’s Anthony James missed a short jumper on the Panthers’ next possession, and the Bears took over with 90 seconds left.   After running the shot clock down, a wide-open Jarmar Gulley misfired on a three from the left corner for MSU, and UNI gathered in the rebound and quickly turned to James, who finished with 23 points. He converted a quick scoop shoot on the other end to make it a 60-59 game with 53 ticks to go.   The Bears called a timeout with 44.1 seconds left. On the next play, MSU got the ball to Weems who drove the lane and dished to Patterson with 22.6 seconds remaining. Johnny Moran stepped into Weems’ path after he passed it, but sold the charge call to the officials, giving UNI the ball with a chance to win.   On the final possession of the night, UNI faced a lock-down MSU defense that stopped Jake Koch as he drove through the lane. The Bears appeared to force Koch into a travel, but his pass got through to Chip Rank. Rank also faced a wall of Bears and worked his way through the defense without dribbling, threw up a contested shot in traffic, and got the ball to fall with 2.2 seconds left.   Coach Paul Lusk signalled for a timeout, but it was not recognized, and the game clock was allowed to expire to ruin another solid Bears’ road effort.   MSU was held to just 40.7 percent shooting (22-for-54) but made 8-of-21 (.381) from long distance and 8-of-9 (.889) at the line. The team’s only missed charity shot was a crucial Weems miss with 2:19 to play on the front end of a one-and-one. The Bears were out-rebounded 33-32, but gave up only 8 second-chance points and committed just 12 turnovers.   UNI was 23-for-53 (.434) from the field, 7-of-19 (.368) from bonus distance and 8-of-10 (.800) at the line. James was the only Panther in double figures and also led his club in rebounding with 8.   Bizoukas had a game-high 7 assists for MSU to go with just one turnover and 6 rebounds.

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES  GAME 19

GAME 20

  Visiting Evansville got the hot hand in the final 32 seconds of regulation and rode that momentum into an 87-82 overtime win.   Lewis Jones had a game-high 24 points off the bench for UE, which won in Springfield for the first time since 2004. Troy Taylor added 14 points and a game-high 14 rebounds, while Colt Ryan scored 22 for the visitors.   Kyle Weems led five Missouri State players in double figures with 17 points.   With the Bears building a 74-69 lead with 40 seconds left in regulation on a pair of free throws by Keith Pickens, the Purple Aces turned to Denver Holmes who knocked down a clutch three-pointer with 31.6 seconds left to make it a two-point game. Evansville fouled Anthony Downing with 27.9 to go, and Downing made the back end of a two-shot opportunity to make it a three-point game. Holmes then responded again with 16.1 ticks left with the shot of the night from the right wing to tie the game, 75-75. Holmes finished with 16 points.   The Bears, who led by as many as 12 in the second half, got a good look on the final possession of the second half, but Downing’s three-pointer in the final seconds did not find its mark to force the extra period.   The Bears managed just one field goal in overtime and made 5-of-6 free throws to keep it close. Christian Kirk, who posted a team-high 9 rebounds for MSU, made it a one-point game with two-and-a-half minutes left with a free throw. However, a put-back by Jones on the next Evansville possession -- after the Bears forced Ned Cox into a missed long-range shot -- pushed UE’s back to three. Ryan knocked down a a clutch jumper with 67 seconds on the clock and then iced a pair of free throws with 6.3 ticks remaining to put the game out of reach. The Bears were 1-for-8 from the field and 0-4 from three in overtime.   The late-game rally by Evansville squelched an otherwise-solid outing by MSU, which led 66-54 with 9:11 to go. Downing scored nine straight Bears’ points during a two-minute stretch in the second half after Evansville had climbed back within six. Downing’s back-to-back three-pointers during the run built up a 12-point lead for Missouri State, its biggest of the afternoon.   Ryan hit two baskets during the ensuing 9-0 run for Evansville that made it 65-62 with 5:02 to go. But a traditional three-point play by Caleb Patterson in heavy traffic on MSU’s next drive seemed to settle things down. Weems sank a pair of free throws 27 seconds later to stretch the home lead back to 72-65 at the 4:13 mark before the rally in the final minute by Marty Simmons’ squad.   Michael Bizoukas finished with JQH Arena records 12 assists and 44 minutes.

  MSU took No. 18 Creighton down to the wire, but could not get the potential game-winning shot to fall in the deciding moments in a 66-65 JQH Arena loss.   With Creighton ahead 66-65 in the final minute, the Bears forced the Jays into their 14th turnover of the night with 22.6 seconds left. An errant pass by Grant Gibbs gave the ball back to MSU with a chance to complete the upset. MSU quickly called a timeout, and set up a play for Kyle Weems who found resistence along the right baseline but still got off a partially-blocked jumper. CU’s Doug McDermott snagged the rebound and was fouled with 6.4 ticks left.   McDermott missed the front end of the one-and-one, and the Bears -- who were out of timeouts -- put their fate in the hands of Anthony Downing who dribbled to the elbow, pulled up and narrowly missed the potential game-winner, which bounced off the rim as the horn sounded.   Gregory Echenique had game-highs 16 points and 7 rebounds for Creighton, which won its seventh game in a row since a Dec. 28 loss to MSU in Omaha.   The Bears had four scorers in double figures, including Downing with 14, Weems with 13, and 11 apiece from Jarmar Gulley and Caleb Patterson. Weems matched Echenique’s game-high with 7 rebounds, and Michael Bizoukas posted 8 assists with a single turnover.   The Bears lost their second one-point decision in less than a week.   Coming out of the locker room with a 34-30 lead, it looked like the late tension would not be necessary in this battle. MSU got jumpers from Christian Kirk and Gulley in the first minute of the second half to move ahead 38-30. But the Jays used their drive-and-pitch offense to get three layups, a put-back and a three over an 11-2 run in under three minutes to take a 45-42 lead with 13:56 to play.   MSU would tie the game three times over the next couple of minutes before a Keith Pickens free throw and a Downing steal and layup got the crowd of 9,124 back in the game and put the Bears ahead 52-49 at the 10:28 mark.   Over the next five minutes, the lead would change hands three more times. Downing’s two free throws with 2:56 remaining tied the game 63-63. Gibbs tacked on a free throw 13 seconds later to put CU ahead by one, and then he split the MSU defense for a layup with just 67 ticks left gave CU a 66-63 lead.   Gulley knocked down a clutch jumper in traffic to make it a 66-65 contest with 55 seconds left to play, but the Bears missed the two potential game-winners in the final 6.4 seconds to lose their fourth home game of the season.   MSU committed just three turnovers on the night , a JQH Arena record.

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES GAME 21

GAME 22

  Missouri State got 16 points from Caleb Patterson and 15 from Kyle Weems, but it was defense that made the difference late as the Bears snapped a threegame Missouri Valley Conference losing streak with a 51-48 win over Bradley.   Freshman Christian Kirk drew a charge with 6.7 seconds left on the heels of an Anthony Downing drawn charge with 3:12 to go to provide the Bears with a pair of monumental defensive stops in the game’s defining moments.   The contest saw 9 lead changes and 8 ties, but MSU took the lead for good with a Downing layup at the 3:39 mark. Bradley (6-15, 1-8) tied the game, 4545, at the 2:27 mark on a jumper by Taylor Brown who scored a game-high 17.   However, Patterson’s put-back with 1:10 to go was the last field goal of the night for MSU and put the visitors up 47-45. MSU was 4-for-4 at the line down the stretch with Weems and Nathan Scheer icing the game from the stripe   Bradley hit a desperation three by Walt Lemon, who finished with 13, that made it a 49-48 game with 1.3 seconds to go before Scheer’s charity efforts.   MSU improved to 6-3 on the road and 3-1 in MVC road games.   The low-scoring affair saw both teams shoot under 40 percent, including a 17-for-49 (.347) effort by the Bears who had just four second-half turnovers. MSU was also 4-for-12 (.333) from three-point range and 13-of-17 (.765) from the line. Weems registered his 100th career double-figure scoring game (20th straight), while the Bears had their lowest offensve output in a win since a 51-50 win at Drake on Jan. 25, 2004.   BU missed its only second-half free throw and out-rebounded MSU 38-32.   The Braves had 11 offensive rebounds in the game, but only two in the second period after Bradley led 20-19 at the half.   In the first half, Jarmar Gulley had 9 points to lead Missouri State. The Bears and Braves both got out of the gates trying to find their shooting touches. Missouri State went 6-for-16 and Bradley was 4-for-21 in the first 12 minutes of the first half. The Bears snapped out of an early 5-2 deficit with a layup by Downing and a three-pointer by Jarmar Gulley to push ahead 7-5 at the 13:41 mark.   Bradley tied the game, 9-9, with 10:20 left in the first stanza on a leaner by Jordan Prosser, but the Bears answered immediately with a trey by Weems.   Bradley would pull within one point of the lead four more times before the intermission, but the Bears had an answer for nearly every run, with Gulley doing most of the damage on three first-half field goals.   With 1:33 left in the period, BU took a 20-19 lead with a pair of foul shots by Lemon. Weems missed a jumper that would have given the lead back to the visiting side just before the halftime horn sounded to keep it a one-point deficit.

  Missouri State lost in overtime for the third time this season as the Bears let a nine-point second-half lead slip through their hands at Illinois State, 76-69.   The Redbirds were led by Jackie Carmichael with a career-high 26 points.   Kyle Weems led three MSU players in double figures, while Christian Kirk added 11 points and 9 rebounds. MSU, which fell to 1-3 in overtime this season, finished a season-low .357 (5-of-14) at the free throw line.   In overtime, a Keith Pickens layup just 34 seconds in put MSU back ahead 67-65, before Tyler Brown knotted the score just 23 seconds later on a layup.   The score remained tied until Carmichael broke free for a layup with 1:09 to go. MSU’s Kirk was fouled on an attempted put-back with 43.3 to play in the extra period and made the front end to keep pull MSU within one point of the lead.   The Bears fouled quickly, and Nic Moore went to the foul line with 40.1 to go and made both shots to make it 71-68. After the second make, Michael Bizoukas missed a quick jumper, and the Redbirds pulled away with foul shots down the stretch to steal one from the Bears.   Missouri State, which led 34-25 at the intermission, saw the ISU go on a 10-2 run to start the second half and make it a one-point game. However, Missouri State reeled off eight unanswered points over the next two-and-a-half minutes to retake a nine-point advantage at 44-35. Gulley sparked the rally with a pair of buckets, while Bizoukas knocked down a right-corner jumper, and Caleb Patterson who left the game with a second-half ankle injury, scored in traffic.   Corey Copeland provided a needed spark off the bench midway through the final stanza with a pair of three-pointers that ended a brief Redbirds’ run.   The Bears made just two field goals over the next seven minutes, while the Redbirds climbed back in the game by going 5-for-7 from the stripe during that span and made it a 58-55 game with just over five to play.   Kirk ended the cold stretch with a solid move through traffic at the 4:09 mark to make it 60-55. Later, a pull-up jumper by ISU junior Tyler Brown made it a two-point game with 3:15 to go, but Anthony Downing drained a clutch three from the right wing to put the Bears back on top 63-58 at the 2:45 mark.   Carmichael scored on back-to-back ISU possessions to make it a one-point game with 90 seconds to go, and then the Redbirds took their first lead of the night on a trey by Anthony Cousin just 38.2 ticks remaining.   Weems was clutch down the stretch, getting to the line with 20.2 showing. He made both charity shots to tie the game, and ISU missed a short jumper at the end of regulation that pushed the game into overtime.

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES  GAME 23

GAME 24

  In a rivalry that had featured four straight one-point decisions, Missouri State left nothing to chance as the Bears rolled to a 63-51 win over visiting Northern Iowa in a key Missouri Valley Conference game.   MSU got 20 points and 10 rebounds from senior Kyle Weems who notched his 13th career double-double, while Anthony Downing scored 16. Jarmar Gulley also contributed 9 points and 10 boards for the home club which beat the Panthers at JQH Arena for the first time in four tries.   Weems scored 18 of his points in the first half to help Coach Paul Lusk’s team overcome an early 9-3 deficit. A Marc Sonnen trey three-and-a-half minutes into the contest put UNI ahead by six in the early going.   However, the Bears took over from there and never looked back. Weems scored six points during the ensuing 20-3 run by Missouri State that pushed the Bears ahead 23-12. Making his eighth straight start, freshman Christian Kirk capped the MSU run with a short jumper with 8:27 left in the opening stanza.   The Panthers rallied within six after scoring on three straight possessions with five-and-a-half minutes left. But, once again the Bears responded by reeling off six straight of their own and led 34-24 at the break.   The Bears’ defense held UNI without a point for more than four minutes to start the second half and climb ahead 39-24. MSU started the second half with a dunk by Isaiah Rhine and a three-pointer by Downing to move ahead by 15.   Once again, the visitors kept their poise and rallied midway through the half as Seth Tuttle scored a layup and Deon Mitchell knocked down a trey and a free throw to pull the Panthers within 39-30. But a pair of MSU three-pointers over a two-minute span -- one by Downing and one by Gulley -- pushed the home club lead back to 15 and never dipped below 12 the rest of the contest.   The play of the afternoon came with just under five minutes to go. With the Bears’ leading 54-39, UNI put together a solid defensive stand on a key possession. A UNI defender deflected the ball into the backcourt, sending Downing sprinting down the floor to retrieve it near the UNI basket with just 5 seconds left on the shot clock. The junior from Atchison, Kan., then sprinted back up the floor and knocked down a 25 footer as the shot clock expired to give MSU its biggest lead of the game, 57-39 with 4:52 to play.   The Bears went 4-for-5 from the line in the final two minutes to seal the win.   The JQH Arena crowd of 9,376 was the biggest of the season for Missouri State and sixth-largest all-time. MSU snapped a two-game home losing streak.

  Garrett Stutz scored 25 points, and Ben Smith added 21 more to help Wichita State erase a two-point halftime deficit and escape JQH Arena with a 74-67 win.   The Bears shot 65.2 percent from the field in the first half to build a 36-34 advantage at the intermission, but WSU tallied 40 second-half points to hand MSU its sixth blown halftime lead of the season.   Kyle Weems scored 21 points behind five three-pointers to lead for Bears in double figures. Jarmar Gulley added 14, Anthony Downing scored 13, and Keith Pickens contributed a career-high 12 points for MSU which fell to 3-4 at home in league play and 6-6 overall.   With the loss, MSU is now in a four-way tie for third place in the MVC with Illinois State, Evansville and Drake -- a team the Bears play in DesMoines on Saturday night. Wichita remained one game behind first-place Creighton in the league standings.   Gregg Marshall’s squad scored 12 of the first 15 points in the second half to move ahead 46-39 just five minutes into the second stanza. Smith knocked down a pair of three-pointers in the first three-plus minutes of the second period and finished with five treys overall.   Stutz dominated in the low post for the visitors, knocking down 10-of-14 field goals, including a momentum-breaking dunk-bank with 10:03 left in the contest that came on the heels of an athletic move to the basket and finish by Gulley. Stutz’s basket made it a 57-48 game, and less than a minute later, Joe Ragland hit his second bonus ball of the contest to give the Shockers a 12-point advantage -- their biggest of the night.   The home team was game for a fight and continued to battle over the last nine minutes. Weems cut a nine-point deficit to 66-60 with 4:39 remaining and cut the WSU lead to five a couple minutes later with his fifth and final three ball of the contest.   At the two-minute mark Downing scored on a quick jumper from the elbow to make it a 68-65 game. On Wichita’s next trip down the floor, the Bears came up with a stop and had the ball back with around a minute to play with a chance to tie. With 65 seconds left, Weems squared up for a potential game-tying threepointer, but narrowly missed the long-range jumper, and the Shockers went 6-for-6 at the foul line down the stretch to seal the Wichita win.   Wichita State was 10-for-10 at the line in the second half and made 27-of-55 (.491) field goals.

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES GAME 25

GAME 26

  Missouri State got 17 points from Kyle Weems aned 12 from Anthony Downing to pick up a 57-39 road win over Drake in a key MVC matchup.   It was the Bears’ seventh road win of the season as they remained tied with Illinois State for third place in the MVC standings.   MSU shot 44.7 percent from the field and out-rebounded the Bulldogs by a 36-27 margin to secure the season sweep over DU.   Drake finished 12-for-44 (.273) from the field and went eight-and-a-half minutes before it made its first field goal of the second half. DU, which played without starter Ben Simons, was just 5-for-20 from the field in the second stanza.   After leading 33-20 at the break and holding Drake without a bucket in the early part of the second period, the visitors kept coming and climbed ahead 4423 at the 13:16 mark on a layup by Christian Kirk.   Drake’s Aaron Hawley broke the ice at the 11:34 mark with a three-pointer from the right corner to trim the Bears’ lead to 18 and give his club its first basket of the second period.   DU’s 1-for-12 start from the field to begin the final half was too much to overcome. And, when Weems knocked down a three-pointer as the shot clock expired at the 7:43 mark, the Bears increased their lead to 24.   The Bears were able to hold the 20-point lead until the final two-and-a-half minutes when they went into game management mode to run out the clock.   Jarmar Gulley led MSU with 8 rebounds, and Downing distributed 4 assists.   Hawley scored 12 points, all from three-point range, to lead the Bulldogs.   In the first half, Michael Bizoukas started the game with a quick layup before the Bears fell behind 5-2 two-and-a-half minutes into the contest. The Knapp Center faithful were soon quieted when Weems dropped in a pair of quick baseline left jumpers to start a 6-0 MSU run, and the Bears never trailed again.   Weems and Gulley helped give the Bears some breathing room with under five minutes left in the opening half. Weems knocked down a pair of free throws at the 4:49 mark, and Gulley converted a close-range layup at 3:26 to give the Bears their first double-figure lead of the night, 28-17.   Hawley later dropped in a right-wing three-pointer for the Bulldogs to make it 28-20 with three minutes remaining. But the Bears scored the last five points of the half, including a traditional three-point play by Kirk and a long-range two by Downing just four seconds before the halftime horn sounded.

  Missouri State picked up its eighth road victory of the season with a 56-54 win at Southern Illinois, holding off a late surge by the Salukis to win for the second straight year at SIU Arena.   The Bears got 18 points from Caleb Patterson and 14 from Kyle Weems while firing at a 51.2 percent clip to overcome a 17-turnover night.   The Bears took a 56-52 lead on a tip-in by Weems with 43.6 seconds left. The Salukis then rallied behind a baseline drive by Jeff Early who converted a layup with 27.3 to go. SIU fouled Jarmar Gulley with 25 ticks remaining, but Gulley missed the front end of a one-and-one to open the door for the home club.   The Salukis called a timeout with 16.3 to go, and Mamadou Seck missed a 12-foot jumper with Weems in his face, and Early had a chance for a put-back but missed. Gulley then grabbed the rebound as time expired to seal the win.   Keith Pickens finished with 9 points and a career-high 9 rebounds for MSU, which out-rebounded SIU 33-23.   Seck led SIU with 14 points and 5 rebounds.   After MSU led 31-25 at the intermission, it took Southern just under three minutes to erase the six-point halftime deficit as back-to-back three-pointers by T.J. Lindsay pushed the home club on top 33-32 at the 17:12 mark.   With just under 16 minutes to go, a three-pointer by Patterson, MSU’s first of the night, gave the Bears a 37-35 advantage, and the Bears pushed ahead by six over the next five minutes. Christian Kirk scored a layup at the 11:19 mark to make it a 45-39 game.   A 6-1 run by the home team followed and brought the Salukis back within 46-45 with eight-and-a-half remaining. But, Patterson came to the rescue again with a pair of free throws with just over eight minutes on the clock to push the Bears’ lead back to three.   Lindsay tied the game again at the 5:32 mark with his third and final trey of the night, but Weems answered the bell moments later to put the Bears back up for good on his only long ball of the night.   MSU finished 21-for-41 (.512) from the field and 3-of-12 (.250) from bonus distance while going 11-for-16 (.688) at the line.   The Salukis were 23-for-51 (.451) and 5-of-16 (.313) from three. SIU was a dismal 3-of-10 (.300) at the line and had just 9 turnovers.

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES  GAME 27

GAME 28

  Missouri State earned its third straight Missouri Valley Conference win, turning back visiting Bradley, 64-53, behind 16 points and 9 rebounds from Anthony Downing.   Downing, who also had a game-high 6 assists, was 6-for-11 from the field and 4-for-4 at the line. His scoring exploits led three Bears in double figures as Caleb Patterson added 14 points off the bench, and Kyle Weems scored 11. Keith Pickens also tacked on a game-high and career-high 12 rebounds and 4 blocks in a starting role.   The double-digit victory was not an easy one, however, as Bradley stayed close for the first 35 minutes. The Braves, who were led by Dyricus SimmsEdwards with 18 points, led as late as the 12:44 mark of the second half when Walt Lemon, Jr., knocked down a three-pointer to give the visitors a 40-39 lead.   However, from there Missouri State put together a 14-4 run over the next nine minutes to lead 53-44. Transition buckets by Downing and Jarmar Gulley and a pair of free throws by Gulley helped cap the run and give the home club some breathing room.   MSU stretched the lead to double figures in the final minute by going 6-for-6 at the foul line as Pickens and Nathan Scheer helped ice the win.   Scheer posted 8 points and 4 rebounds in a team-high 29 minutes for MSU which moved into sole possession of third place in the MVC with the victory.   The game featured four ties and 12 lead changes, including eight changes in the second half. MSU out-rebounded Bradley by a 23-11 margin in the final 20 minutes and 43-33 for the game.   Bradley, which also got double-digits in the scoring column from Lemon with 13 and Jordan Prosser with 10 points, committed six turnovers.   In the first half, the Bears overcame early foul trouble by Downing, Weems and Gulley who all played 10 minutes or less before going to the pine with two fouls before the break. MSU led 29-25 at the intermission, despite leading 29-17 with just under four minutes to go before the break.   MSU closed out a 12-0 run at the 3:53 mark of the opening stanza with a three-pointer by Gulley that made it a 29-17 game. The Braves, however, finished the opening period with eight unanswered points to make a game of it. Bradley accounted for five offensive rebounds down the stretch, one of which led to a critical three-pointer by Simms-Edwards with a minute to go.

  No. 24 Wichita State used 11 three-pointers and a double-double from Garrett Stutz to turn back visiting Missouri State, 73-58.   Stutz scored 21 points and had 10 rebounds to lift the Shockers to a fifth straight win and clinch a share of the MVC regular-season title. MSU got 17 points from Anthony Downing, 14 from Caleb Patterson and 10 by Kyle Weems.   The Bears allowed the Shockers just two offensive rebounds and committed just six turnovers to keep things close for most of the contest. But, the Shockers went 11-for-19 (.579) from three-point range to elevate the sellout crowd.   After the Bears went into halftime trailing just 34-32, the second half started with a series of runs. First, the Shockers reeled off seven unanswered points to begin the period , sparked by a Stutz dunk and a three-pointer by Toure Murry that extend WSU’s two-point lead to 41-32 just over 90 seconds into the period.   The Bears responded with a 7-0 run of their own to climb back within 39-41 after a jumper by Patterson, a three by Weems, and a jumper by Isaiah Rhine over the next three-and-a-half minutes.   But WSU kept the pressure on and reeled off eight straight from there, taking less than two minutes to knock down a pair of threes and a layup to make it 49-39 with 12:45 to play.   WSU went up by 14 after David Kyles knocked down a three and then responded moments later with a layup off a press and steal to make it a 56-42 contest at the 10:17 mark.   Weems responded with a trey of his own at the 10 minute mark, but the home club got three-happy again and knocked down two more bombs from the right wing to increase its advantage to 17 and later 19 points.   The Shockers kept full-court pressure for the remainder of the contest to squelch and potential Bears’ comeback, and WSU handed the Bears a 15-point defeat, their third-worst of the season.   The Bears overcame a pair of double-figure deficits in the first half and tied the game late in the opening period. Stutz was called for carrying the ball at the 56-second mark, and the Bears took advantage of the momentum shift to tie the game up just before the break. Weems drew a double team on the left block and hit a wide open Michael Bizoukas for a reverse layup to tie the game 32-32 at the 37-second mark. The Shockers capitalized of a late foul on the final possession of the half, and David Kyles knocked down a pair of true charity shots with 6 ticks to go. The free throws put WSU on top 34-32 at the intermission.

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES GAME 29

GAME 30

  Old Dominion knocked down 12 three-pointers and got 28 points from Kent Bazemore to turn back MSU, 73-67, in a nationally-televised BracketBusters tilt.   Trian Iliadis also buried four three-pointers to finish with 14 points for ODU.   Kyle Weems led four MSU players in double figures with 15 points and 6 rebounds, while Anthony Downing and Jarmar Gulley pitched in 13 points apiece.   The game was a statistical dead heat with MSU out-rebounding the visitors 30-29, while both teams hit 25 field goals, 11 free throws and committed 9 turnovers. It was ODU’s long-range efforts, however that consistently stood out.   A 10-0 run by ODU in the last three minutes of the first half put the visitors ahead 30-27 at the break. However, the Bears came out storming and collected a dunk by Christian Kirk and transition layup by Downing to move on top 31-30.   A Pickens layup just under three minutes into the second half put the Bears ahead 36-33, but a trey from Iliadis a minute later helped spark another 10-0 Monarchs’ run. By the time the run peaked at the 15:24 mark, ODU led 43-36.   ODU later made it 51-42 with just under 12 minutes to go on a Donte Hill trey.   The Bears continued to battle and cut their deficit to five later in the half. A transition bucket by Downing, and a Gulley field goal made it 53-48 at the 9:34 mark. However, a soft foul on Downing sent Bazemore to the line on ODU’s next possession, and sparked him to score 9 straight over the next five minutes.   With three-and-a-half minutes left, Pickens stripped the ball from Bazemore near mid-court and raced down the floor for a layup. Bazemore fouled the sophomore on the play, giving Pickens a chance to pull the Bears back within five points. Pickens missed the ensuing and-one free throw, and then Iliadis dropped in his final trey of the night to push the visitors’ lead to 65-56.   The Bears rallied in the final two minutes when Caleb Patterson scored a short jumper, and Downing knocked down a clutch three over a 21-second span to make it a 67-62 game. Bazemore made a pair of free throws with 1:32 to play, but Weems responded with a trey nine seconds later to make it 69-65.   Hill made one-of-two free throws with 1:19 left, and Patterson responded with a pair of foul shots for the Bears to gain ground and make it 70-67 with 1:08 left.   The Bears got a timely stop on ODU’s next possession, forcing Bazemore into a missed jumper. Gulley tracked down the long rebound, and MSU quickly got the ball down the floor to Patterson who missed from point-blank range in traffic. MSU then had to foul and sent Nick Wright to the line where he made 1-of-2 free throws to keep the Bears within four. MSU missed two threes on their next trip before Bazemore iced the game with two more free throws.

  Missouri State shot a season-low 31.3 percent from the field and never led in a 59-46 senior night setback to visiting Indiana State.   The Sycamores spoiled MSU’s chance to lock up the No. 3 seed for the MVC Tournament in St. Louis and handed the Bears just their third senior-night defeat since they moved to Division I in 1982-83.   Dwayne Lathan led three ISU players in double figures with 12 points. Indiana State finished 21-for-49 from the field and out-rebounded the home club 41-34.   After Indiana State expanded its 10-point halftime lead to 12 on the first bucket of the second half, MSU got the offense rolling and put together a 9-0 run to pull within 30-27 at the 14:42 mark. A three-point play by Kyle Weems and a hook shot by Christian Kirk saprked the run and got the Bears back in the hunt.   Indiana State ended a five-minute scoring drought at the 12:57 mark when Lathan dropped in a three-pointer from the left wing to stretch the ISU advantage back to six. A fast-break layup by Steve McWhorter followed on the next Sycamores’ possession to stretch the game back to 35-27.   The Bears got a layup by Jarmar Gulley and a quick jumper by Caleb Patterson on their next two possessions to make it a 37-31 game with 10:39 remaining. But, Indiana State had an answer for every run after that.   After a jumper off an in-bound play by Kyle Weems with 6:38 to go made it 44-36, the Bears got their final 10 points from Anthony Downing. Indiana State, meanwhile stretched out the clock, got the breaks it needed down the stretch to hand MSU just its third double-figure loss ever at JQH Arena.   Downing finished with a game-high 14 points, while Gulley tacked on 13 points and 10 rebounds for his first double-double at Missouri State.   The Bears’ four seniors all scored, but combined for just 14 points, including 7 by Weems who had a 28-game double-figure scoring streak snapped. Michael Bizoukas scored three, while Patterson and Isaiah Rhine added two points.   Late in the first half, a 12-0 run by the visitors put ISU ahead, 28-18, at the intermission. The Bears got a tip-in from Gulley at the 8:38 mark to pull MSU within 13-12. After a Printy trey pushed ISU back ahead by four, Rhine knocked down a short jumper from the left baseline to make it a 16-14 game.   It was all Indiana State over the last five minutes of the first half. ISU reeled off 12 straight before Gulley closed out the half with four unanswered points. During the ISU’ run, it led by as many as 14 before the late rally by Gulley.

2011-12 GAME SUMMARIES  GAME 31

GAME 32

  A desperation three by Evansville at the end of regulation forced overtime, and the Aces held on to win the regular-season finale 75-70.   The Bears got a career-high 20 points from Jarmar Gulley, 17 from Anthony Downing and 13 from Kyle Weems in a valiant effort. MSU out-rebounded Evansville by a 50-31 margin, but committed an uncharacteristic 24 turnovers and missed 11 free throws that proved to be the difference down the stretch.   In OT, the Bears got UE stars Colt Ryan and Denver Holmes to foul out in the first two minutes, but Gulley and Keith Pickens were only able to convert one of four free throw opportunities those fouls created. Weems then fouled out with 2:41 to go, and Kenny Harris dropped in both free throws to put UE up 66-63.   The Bears kept it close, but Evansville finished 11-for-12 at the line in overtime to put the game away.   After leading 34-26 at the half, MSU extended its lead to double digits with a Gulley layup 28 seconds into the second period. But the Aces were game and got five points from Ryan as part of a 9-0 run to make it 36-35 with 17:13 to go.   The Bears retaliated with back-to-back baskets by Gulley to stretch their lead back to five at the 15:25 mark, but a Ryan three and four straight free throws over the next two minutes tied the game 42-42.   Downing broke the tie at 11:09 with a three to make it a 45-42 contest, but Ned Cox drained a trey on Evansville’s next trip to knot score again, and EU got a layup by Ryan Sawvell 30 seconds later to take the lead for the first time.   UE led by as many as four from there before the Bears tied the game again at the 5:31 mark with Weems scoring a layup and a pair of charity shots over a 38-second span. Gulley ended a 6-0 Bears’ run with just under five minutes to go with a put-back on MSU’s fourth chance of the rally to make it 55-53.   The Aces scored the next six points to go up 59-55 with 2:22 remaining before the Bears turned it up. A jumper by Caleb Patterson, a Weems free throw and a Weems jumper brought the lead back to MSU 60-59 with 36.9 seconds left.   With 20 seconds to go, UE put its fate in the hands of Colt Ryan who drove left, but Christian Kirk stepped in for a game-saving charge to give MSU the ball and the lead. However, Evansville stole the in-bound pass when Gulley lost the handle in the corner, and missed from short range. Keith Pickens tracked down the carom and the Aces eventually fouled Downing who made both, making it a 62-59 game with just 8.8 seconds showing on the clock.   Evansville had one last prayer, and Denver Holmes answered it with a desperation three from the right wing with a second remaining to force overtime.

  Third-seeded Evansville had an answer for every Missouri State run and out-rebounded the Bears by a 37-22 margin to secure a 72-64 Missouri Valley Conference quarterfinal-round victory that ended MSU’s season.   The Bears were led by seniors Kyle Weems and Caleb Patterson with 23 and 11 points, respectively. Weems also had a team-high 10 rebounds for his 14th double-double. It was his 21st career 20-point game. Anthony Downing also added 10 points for MSU, which dropped its fifth straight to close out the year.   Evansville, which topped MSU for the third time this season, got 20 points and 8 rebounds from Kenny Harris, while Colt Ryan scored 19.   The Aces jumped out to an 8-3 lead and took control out of the gates. Midway through the opening half, MSU got back-to-back three-pointers by Patterson and Weems to start an 11-2 run. Patterson’s jumper at the 10:08 mark capped the run and put MSU on top for the only time in the game, 22-21.   From there, Evansville got to the foul line three straight trips to stretch its advantage back to five before a Troy Taylor steal and layup was an exclamation mark on an 8-0 run by UE that made it a 29-22 game.   MSU went on another mini run just before the half when Michael Bizoukas made a free throw, and Weems nailed a long-range three to trim an 11-point deficit to seven. But a driving layup by Harris with four seconds left on the firststanza clock pushed Evansville’s lead to 43-34 at the intermission.   The Bears cut their nine-point halftime deficit to two at the 17:37 mark after MSU scored the first seven points in the second half. A traditional three-point play by Weems made it 43-41 to end a 7-0 run. But as they did all night, the Aces had an answer and subsequently reeled off eight unanswered points of their own to regain control 53-43 at the 12:04 mark.   The closest the Bears would bet the rest of the way was seven on three occasions. A free throw by Jarmar Gulley with just over seven minutes left made it 55-48 as UE went over six minutes without a point to help the Bears inch back in it. Later, Christian Kirk and Anthony Downing helped get the Bears within 6356 and 65-58, respectively, with baskets inside a minute-and-a-half to go. But Evansville went 11-for-12 from the free throw line in the final 2:22 to ice the win.   Just six days after out-rebounding Evansville 50-31 in the regular-season finale, MSU collected a season-low 22 caroms and only seven on the offensive end. The Bears also committed just eight turnovers.   The eight-point defeat was MSU’s 12th single-digit loss of the campaign.
