more seasons. Missouri State’s other guard with starting experience is Desiree Phillips, who saw her role change dramatically last season when she was inserted into the starting lineup January 21, helping the Lady Bears go 11-1 with her as a starter. A strong defender with a good touch from beyond the arc, Phillips can be counted on to give her best effort every time she sets foot on the floor. The third of MSU’s set of junior guards is Hannah Wilkerson, a profilic high school scorer who Milleson thinks can be an X-factor for the Lady Bears. In addition to her scoring ability, the Miller, Mo., native is a great passer with the tools to produce on both ends and will be a key to MSU’s success this season now that she is an upperclassman. Kenzie Williams is another Southwest Missouri product who was sorely missed last season after going down with a knee injury in the second game of the year. An intelligent player whose game has drawn comparison’s to Garrison thanks to her variety of strengths, Williams is already a vocal leader for the Lady Bears and will only get better as she gets game experience. Nijay Gaines rounds out Missouri

Missouri State has a group of young guards poised to expand their roles and excited for the opportunity for more minutes this season. The most experienced returner, Karly Buer, is the one Milleson will lean on most heavily this season to keep the high-powered Lady Bear offense running smoothly. “I’ve been so pleased with Karly,” Milleson said of the junior guard. “She showed what she’s capable of coming down the stretch last year, and now she’s going to have to do that without those seniors around her.” Buer’s stretch run in 2012 was remarkable for a sophomore amongst a seniorladen backcourt. Over the season’s final 18 games, she scored in double figures 14 times, averaged 10.7 points in MVC play, and was perhaps the biggest key to MSU’s 11-game winning streak late in the year that secured the MVC championship. Buer’s work ethic, mid-range game, accurate free throw shooting (88-percent last year, sixth in school history) and superb ball-handling and passing ability (10th in MVC in assists, second in assist-to-turnover ratio), leave her well equipped to run the MSU offense for two

hen asked the most common question she heard entering her sixth season in charge of the Lady Bears, Nyla Milleson’s answer was easy: “Who’s going to replace Casey Garrison?” And while the loss of Garrison, along with her four classmates who also meant so much to the Lady Bears, may cause outsiders to doubt Missouri State’s ability to stay on top, the sentiment within the program remains the same. “Our goals haven’t changed,” Milleson said looking ahead to the season. “In fact, we’re still short a goal. We want to repeat as conference champions. This group is determined. They want to be the one that breaks through and gets to the NCAA Tournament.” And as for those outside expectations, Milleson welcomes the opportunity to enter a season under the radar after two consecutive years of being the league’s preseason favorite, citing that while most are not expecting Missouri State to repeat, the team’s offseason work and additional practices afforded by a summer trip to Costa Rica have allowed the Lady Bears to jell quickly as a team that will look much different than it did in 2012.

Tyonna Snow is a fast, athletic player with the tools to be a lock-down defender for the Lady Bears, who Milleson says will allow Missouri State more options on the defensive end than in recent years. Snow is also a proven winner, evidenced by her status as the only player in Kansas City girls basketball history to participate in four state championship games, qualifying with Blue Springs High from 2009-12. Nicole Smallwood is a sharp-shooter from the Dallas Metroplex who completes the list of MSU’s perimeter players.

State’s returning perimeter players and spent the offseason expanding her versatility and working on the details of her game. The sophomore’s approach to team success should net increased playing time from the 59 minutes, 12 points and six rebounds she logged as a freshman. The Lady Bears also have a trio of true freshman guards who each bring a different skill set to the table. Mikala McGhee, an all-state performer in both basketball and soccer as well as a standout softball player for Pattonville High in the St. Louis area, was praised by Milleson in the preseason for her “unbelievable daily effort” and “playing only one way: all out.” McGhee’s combination of athleticism and intangibles will likely make her an impact player early on.

taller. Senior Christiana Shorter headlines that group, bringing 100 career starts into her final season and drawing high praise from her coach along the way. “Chris has done a great job. She’s one of our hardest workers day in and day out, both on and off the floor,” Milleson said. “She’s done a lot of the dirty work and gone about it quietly, but at the end of the year she’s going to be in the top 10 in a lot of categories.” Eleven categories, in fact, ranging from points to rebounds to steals to personal fouls. Shorter is within shouting distance of MSU records for both games played and started, and could also become the second player in school history with 1,000 rebounds with what will also likely be a top-10 career point total. A two-time second-team all-conference player and the 2010 MVC Freshman of the Year, Shorter is poised to earn all-MVC honors for a fourth consecutive season. Whitney Edie and Aly Stock comprise the rest of MSU’s senior class and are two physical players at the block. Edie closed her junior campaign strong, with 9.0 points and 6.1 rebounds over the final 10 games, and parlayed that into solid offseason and preseason efforts ahead of her senior season. The Exeter, Mo., native shot 51.6-percent from the field last season while averaging a team-best 12 rebounds per 40 minutes and stuffing 22 shots, also tops on the squad. Stock, meanwhile, adds another shotblocking presence around the rim with her 6-foot-4 frame, while her shooting touch makes her a matchup problem for the opposition. Bry Snow completes the list of returning post players, and her sophomore season played out much like Phillips as she made her starting debut Jan. 21 and helped MSU go 14-3 with her in the lineup. Her rebounding ability and physical play will be pivotal to MSU’s success in 201213. The other half of Missouri State’s freshman class includes a trio of post players: Hillary Chvatal, Tori Henderson, and Alex Hillyer. Chvatal was a four-time all-state performer in Kansas, leading the state in rebounding twice and scoring once as a prep while more than doubling her high school’s record for career rebounds. She has a great nose for the ball and expects to be a contributor early in her career. Henderson is a good rebounder who is skilled on the block, while also maintaining the ability to step out on the floor

There are many unknowns heading into the Missouri Valley Conference this season, with several new coaches in the league and no clear-cut favorite. Illinois State, which finished second in 2012 and provided the biggest threat to the Lady Bears’ title hopes as the season progressed, loses one first-team all-MVC guard (Katie Broadway) and returns another (Jamie Russell) from last year’s WNIT squad. In all, the Redbirds return 10 letterwinners from a team that ranked among the nation’s best from 3-point land last season. Wichita State is similar to the Redbirds in that it remains relatively intact minus

The Lady Bears will once again face a challenging non-conference schedule that will both prepare them for the MVC schedule as well as build a resume for postseason consideration. The non-league schedule itself features the possibility of playing three teams with an RPI of 50 or better and four NCAA Tournament squads with seven of the 12 making the postseason a year ago. The Lady Bears take on BCS foes Oklahoma State, Missouri and Iowa, with the potential for two more in Louisville and either Oregon State or Mississippi State at the Hardwood Tournament of Hope in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (Nov. 20-22). Missouri State also takes on 2012 NCAA team Arkansas-Little Rock on the road, hosts 2012 WNIT squad Oral Roberts, plays a road game against intra-state rival Southeast Missouri State, and hosts Northern Kentucky and Coppin State. “Without question, our non-conference is going to prepare us for The Valley,” Milleson said. “Once that rolls around I think this group, with the freshmen mixed in, is going to be able to compete.” With the addition of the Missouri Valley Conference schedule, the Lady Bears will have a total of 19 games against 14 teams that participated in a postseason tournament in 2011-12. The Missouri Valley Conference Women’s Basketball Championship will once again be held at The Family Arena in St. Charles, Mo. from March 14-17, 2013.

The Schedule

the loss of MVC Defensive Player of the Year Haleigh Lankster. The Shockers bring back do-it-all guard Jessica Diamond as well as post players Chynna Turner and Jazimen Gordon to anchor a roster that will once again play a physical, grind-it-out style. WSU won 20 games last year and played in the WNIT. Creighton served as the MVC’s NCAA Tournament representative last season after winning the league tournament, and returns all but one letterwinner from that club. First-team all-Valley guard Carli Tritz will lead the Bluejays and teams up with all-conference forward Sarah Nelson to make arguably the league’s top insideoutside tandem. UNI could be the wild card in the conference race as it returns 2011 MVC Player of the Year Jacqui Kalin for a sixth season of eligibility after an ACL tear last year. The Panthers will be without three veterans starters from last year’s club that went 1915 and played in the finals of the Women’s Basketball Invitational. Indiana State, which finished sixth in last year’s MVC race and 15-16 overall, enters this year without three impact seniors in Shannon Thomas, Brittany Schoen and Deja Mattox. The Sycamores will be young, with just one senior and two juniors among the 12 players on the roster. Drake, which joined UNI and Indiana State in the league’s three-way tie for fifth last year, looks to build on the momentum of its MVC title game run last year, but will have to do so without the services of 2012 MVC Player of the Year Rachael Hackbarth. The Bulldogs return three starters for new coach Jennie Baranczyk. Like Drake, Bradley will also be under new leadership as Mike Brooks takes the reins of the BU program. Brooks will have four talented guards in Kelsey Budd, Shronda Butts, Catie O’Leary and Katie Yohn at his disposal, and all played key roles in the Braves winning 18 games last season and playing in the WBI despite finishing eighth in the regular season, a tribute to the MVC’s depth. Southern Illinois will rely heavily on sophomore guard Cartaesha Macklin, the reigning MVC Freshman of the Year after putting up 16.5 points, 5.9 rebounds and 3.6 assists as a rookie. The Salukis return four starters from a club that improved by six games in the win column from 2010-11 to last season. Evansville brings back three starters and eight letterwinner from last season’s 5-25 club as second-year head coach Oties Epps looks to ride the strength of four seniors to improve the Purple Aces’ standing in 201213.

and shoot. The Euless, Texas, native rated highly on ESPN’s national recruiting site Hoopgurlz.com. Hillyer was a prolific shot-blocker in high school with 359 career stuffs to her credit. She also possesses a good shooting touch, and her effort day in and day out serves as a valuable asset for the Lady Bears.

Milleson, who enters the 2012-13 season 276106 (.723) overall as a collegiate head coach, is 91-70 (.565) at MSU to rank second all-time among Lady Bear mentors for total victories through five seasons. Under Milleson’s leadership, the Lady Bears have won 70 games over the last three seasons, including a total of five postseason victories in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament. The Lady Bears topped the 20-win mark for the 17th time in school history in 2011-12, finishing 24-9 overall to match the ninthhighest single-season win total in the 43-year history of the program.

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.

Just before construction began in December of 2006 on JQH Arena, the Missouri State men’s and women’s basketball programs received a head start on their facility upgrades with the completion of a new practice area in the east gym of Hammons Student Center, the Turner Family Practice Court. 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. The east gym underwent extensive renovations, including the installation of new lighting, wall covering and side goals, as well as the addition of the hardwood floor that was in use in HSC’s main arena from 1985 until February of 2006. The Lady Bears of coaches Valerie Goodwin-Colbert, Cheryl Burnett and Katie Abrahamson-Henderson put 15 postseason teams on the old floor, including 13 NCAA teams and two WNIT squads, and compiled a cumulative record of 261-57 (.820) while it was in use in Hammons.

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.

Participate in Public Affairs

Missouri State is proud of its mission in public affairs. The components of the public affairs mission are ethical leadership, cultural competence and community engagement. Through this mission, students develop understanding of issues that affect the local community, the world at large and the environment. The courses they take challenge them to become informed and active citizens. On top of that, opportunities for volunteering and service-learning put students in real-world situations. Missouri State holds a Public Affairs Week and Public Affairs Conference each year to further express the components of the mission. Speakers address topics such as citizenship, democracy, diversity, the economy and sustainability.

Kyle Weems (basketball) and Chris Douglas (football) were two of 95 Missouri State student-athletes to complete their degrees during the 2011-12 academic year.

yla Milleson enters her sixth season as the head Lady Bear after returning Missouri State back to the top of the Missouri Valley Conference in year five. Milleson, who enters the 2012-13 season 276-106 (.723) overall as a collegiate head coach, is 91-70 (.565) at MSU to rank second all-time among Lady Bear mentors for total victories through five seasons. Milleson’s Lady Bears will have a new look entering the 2012-13 season, with the five seniors who were so instrumental in the program’s return to prominence being replaced by an exciting seven-player freshman class with loads of potential. Even with the loss of those seniors, MSU still returns four players who made at least 12 starts in 2011-12, including two-time all-MVC performer Christiana Shorter and junior guard Karly Buer, whose high level of play in the second half of her sophomore season was a catalyst for the Lady Bears’ regular-season conference championship. Under Milleson’s leadership, the Lady Bears have won 70 games over the last three seasons, including a total of five postseason victories in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament. The Lady Bears topped the 20-win mark for the 17th time in school history in 2011-12, finishing 24-9 overall to match the ninthhighest single-season win total in the 43-year history of the program. Additionally, MSU’s 12-win improvement from a 10-victory season in Milleson’s second year (200809) to a 22-11 record just one year later tied for the seventh-best turnaround in the nation in 2009-10 and propelled the Lady Bears to their first postseason tournament appearance in five seasons. The Lady Bears renaissance under Milleson has been keyed by an infusion of talented newcomers since her arrival on campus. Milleson’s recruiting haul has ultimately landed 10 all-conference honorees over the past three seasons alone, as well as either an MVC Freshman or Newcomer of the Year award in each of her first four seasons at MSU, including 2010 Jackie Stiles MVC Player of the Year Casey Garrison. Additionally, Christiana Shorter was named the league’s Freshman of the Year in 2010, becoming the second straight Lady Bear to earn the league’s top rookie honor after Garrison earned the same distinction in 2009. Highlighted by Garrison’s four consecutive First-Team All-MVC honors, just the sixth time in league history a player has accomplished that feat, last year’s haul hiked MSU’s total number of all-conference citations to 18 (by nine different players) during her five years on the Lady Bear bench. Milleson’s squad has excelled in the classroom as well, racking up a combined 30 MVC Honor Roll and Scholar-Athlete citations during her tenure. Most notably, Lacey Boshe became the sixth Lady Bear

in program history to earn Academic All-America distiction, earning a spot on the Capitol One Second Team in 2012 and being named the MVC Women’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Additionally, Tahnee Balerio and Tiff Terwelp were selected for MVC Scholar-Athlete recognition in 2006-07, and Karly Buer made the squad in 2012 alongside Boshe’s second selection. Milleson was named the sixth head coach in the history of the Missouri State women’s basketball program on April 9, 2007, after a remarkable seven-year run as head coach at Drury University. “We are fortunate to have found a coach that excels in all dimensions of the job,” said former MSU president Dr. Michael Nietzel. “Coach Milleson has a tremendous record, her teams have a history of high academic performance, she has a great appreciation for the Lady Bear program’s history and high expectations, and she knows and loves Springfield.” Milleson connected instantly with the Lady Bear faithful, rekindling the fire of one of the most loyal fan bases in women’s college basketball during a solid 2007-08 season that saw MSU finish .500 (9-9) in MVC play — good for fifth in the league race — for the first time in three years. After watching her squad drop 11 of its first 13 contests, Milleson and her staff engineered a remarkable turnaround that saw the Lady Bears win seven of their next 11 games and nine of their last 16 conference outings. Under Milleson’s guidance, four Lady Bears earned Valley postseason honors, including senior guard Tahnee Balerio, who was a second-team all-conference selection, and Maggie Dwyer, who was tabbed the league’s newcomer of the year after leading MSU in scoring, as well as finishing second on the squad in assists and third in rebounding. No stranger to the tradition of excellence that was a hallmark of the Missouri State program for much of the past two decades, Milleson immediately set her sights on recognizing and celebrating the Lady Bears’ storied past as a means of building toward the future. Missouri State welcomed back dozens of former players, coaches and support staffers for a reunion of MSU’s two Final Four squads from 1992 and 2001 at its Dec. 7 contest against Saint Louis, then brought the curtains down at Hammons Student Center with a memorable 79-73 victory over Creighton on March 8, as over 50 former Lady Bears came home one more time before the move to JQH Arena in 2008-09. Despite a 10-20 finish, the Lady Bears 2008-09 season provided plenty of reasons to be optimistic, including the collective performance of a talented and deep freshman class that accounted for more than twothirds of MSU’s offense while totaling 99 starts. Under Milleson’s tutelage, Garrison became just the fifth MSU freshman to earn first-team All-MVC distinction, while another Lady Bear rookie, Jaleshia Roberson, joined her teammate on the Valley’s all-freshman squad. The 2008-09 season also saw Milleson notch a personal milestone when she recorded her 200th career victory at the collegiate level with the Lady Bears’ 77-68 win over Chattanooga (Dec. 20) at the Caribbean Classic in Cancun, Mexico.

her third coaching assignment in the city of Springfield with her acceptance of the Missouri State job. The head coach at Springfield Glendale High School from 1992-99, she moved to Drury and spent the 1999-00 school year putting the building blocks in place for Drury’s first-ever women’s team. What happened over the next seven seasons is the stuff of story books. Chalking up a gaudy .837 winning percentage, her scratchbuilt program claimed six conference titles and made five multiple-round appearances in the NCAA Division II tournament, finishing as national runner-up in 2003-04. Drury had the top winning percentage among all Division II programs in the nation over Milleson’s last four years at the school, and her 185-36 record in seven Drury seasons resulted in an average of 26.4 wins a year. In 2006-07, Drury had a 14-5 regular season mark in conference play to win the GLVC West Division and knocked off Kentucky Wesleyan and Northern Kentucky in the first two rounds of the conference tournament before bowing to East Division champ Lewis in the tourney finals. Drury then drew an NCAA at-large bid, and, in the regional tournament at Lewis, beat SIU-Edwardsville in the first round before returning the favor against Lewis with a 67-62 win on the Flyers’ home court. That win moved Drury into the Sweet 16 where the Lady Panthers upended Ferris State before a loss to Southern Connecticut State in the Division II national quarterfinals capped a 25-9 campaign. The Lady Panthers, also among the top 12 schools in Division II average home attendance in each of Milleson’s seven seasons, claimed Heartland Conference titles four of the five seasons Drury competed in that league before the Lady Panthers joined the potent Great Lakes Valley Conference in 2005-06. Drury became the first team to go undefeated in GLVC history with a 19-0 mark in 2005-06 and the Lady Panthers’ 30-3 season record included a trip to the Division II Sweet 16. Drury caught the fancy of basketball-happy southwest Missouri in the Lady Panthers’ inaugural season that featured a 20-6 record and a Heartland title. Drury finished second in the Heartland in 2001-02 in an overall 18-9 season and then won 33 of 34 conference games over the next three seasons in chalking up three more league championships. The 2003 Lady Panthers were 27-5 and got to the Division II third round and the 2003-04 ballclub put together a 36-2 season record in which Drury got all the way to the national title game in St. Joseph, Mo. The Lady Panthers won their first three tournament games, knocked off Seattle Pacific in the national quarterfinals, downed Henderson State in the semifinal contest and dropped a 75-72 decision to California (Pa.) for the Division II title. Drury went 29-2 in 2004-05 and was again an NCAA automatic qualifier, but lost in the second round of the Division II tournament. Milleson was named Region 6 Coach of the Year by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association in both 2005 and 2006. She was Heartland Conference Coach of the Year in 2001 and 2004.

Milleson’s Career Coaching Record

OUTLOOK / MISSOURI STATE /

Under Milleson, the Lady Panthers’ on-court success was mirrored by exceptional classroom work. The team was ranked among the top 10 Division II women’s basketball programs in cumulative team grade point average in six of Milleson’s seven years as head coach, finishing first in both 2004 and 2005, and second in 2006. Milleson’s production of six 20-win teams in seven seasons at Drury came after she had guided the Springfield (Mo.) Glendale High Lady Falcons to six 20-win seasons in seven years at GHS, for an overall mark of 158-39 in that tenure. A two-time WBCA High School Coach of the Year nominee, she took her teams to four conference titles and three district championships with top 10 state rankings every year. The Lady Falcons collected a Missouri Class 4A state title in 1996 with a 27-3 record which earned Milleson selection as MBCA and Associated Press Missouri Coach of the Year.

rish Marsh returns to the sidelines for her sixth year as the Lady Bears’ associate head coach in 2012-13. Marsh made the move across town in April of 2007 after seven seasons as head coach Nyla Milleson’s top assistant at Drury. Marsh also spent seven years on Milleson’s staff at Springfield (Mo.) Glendale High School prior to making the jump to DU in 1999. As associate head coach, Marsh supervises the Lady Bears’ off-season strength and conditioning program, oversees the program’s compliance measures and assists with practice and game preparations. Marsh also helps oversee Lady Bear Basketball Camp operations during the summer months. Marsh’s recruiting efforts have helped land 10 all-conference honorees for MSU over the past three seasons alone, as well as either an MVC Freshman or Newcomer of the Year award in each of her first four seasons at MSU, including 2010 Jackie Stiles MVC Player of the Year Casey Garrison. Additionally, Christiana Shorter was named the league’s Freshman of the Year in 2010, becoming the second straight Lady Bear to earn the league’s top rookie honor after Garrison earned the same distinction in 2009. Highlighted by Garrison’s four consecutive First-Team All-MVC honors, just the sixth time in league history a player has accomplished that feat, last year’s haul hiked MSU’s total number of allconference citations to 18 (by nine different players) during her five years on the Lady Bear bench. While at Drury, Marsh helped construct a program that won five conference titles and made five straight NCAA Division II Tournament appearances. The Lady Panthers made four trips to the Sweet 16 in that period, highlighted by a national runner-up finish in 2003-04 when Drury finished 36-2. Over a three-year period between the 2003-04 and 200506 seasons, DU posted the top winning percentage in all of Division II women’s basketball, going 95-7 over that span. A native of Marshfield, Mo., the former Trish Van Diggelen was the Lady Jays’ basketball most valuable player in 1987 and 1988. As a senior in 1988, Marsh helped lead Marshfield High to a perfect 32-0 mark and Class 3A state title. Marsh went on to a standout four-year basketball career at Missouri University of Science and Technology (formerly University of Missouri-Rolla), where she broke virtually every three-point shooting record in school history and led the nation in Division II three-point percentage as a freshman. A 2011 inductee into the Missouri S&T Athletics Hall of Fame, she remains the Miners’ sixth all-time leading scorer with 1,125 points. Marsh, who overcame a year-long battle with

She was also honored by the Springfield Women’s Intersport Network as the organization’s 2009 Courage Award winner in recognition of her triumph over breast cancer and her continued influence as a role model in women’s athletics. Marsh and her husband, Marty, have two children, Mitchell and Madison.

ethany Creed begins her second season as an assistant coach and fifth season in the Lady Bear program in 2012-13. Creed spent three seasons as director of basketball operations before being promoted in June 2011. Creed became the third member of Milleson’s staff with ties to DU, joining associate head coach Trish Marsh and former assistant coach Carly Stubblefield, who both served on the Lady Panthers’ staff during Creed’s playing days at the Springfield school. In her role as assistant, Creed plays a key part in MSU’s recruiting efforts while also assisting with practice and game preparations. As director of operations, Creed oversaw Missouri State’s film exchange, academic monitoring and equipment operations, while coordinating team travel arrangements and overseeing Lady Bear Basketball Camp operations. Creed originally joined the Lady Bear staff in July 2008, after teaching physical education and coaching volleyball, track and girls basketball for her alma mater, the Ash Grove (Mo.) R-IV School District. Creed, who played for Milleson at Drury University from 2002-06, was a key figure in the DU’s rise to national prominence, helping the Lady Panthers amass 122 victories against just 12 defeats during her collegiate career. DU captured conference titles and appeared in postseason play in each of her four years, advancing all the way to the Division II national title game in 2004. DU also made Sweet 16 appearances in 2003 and 2006. Creed concluded her career among Drury’s all-time leaders in free throw percentage, rebounding, assists and steals. Creed’s record-breaking college career came on the heels of one of the most prolific prep careers in the history of Missouri high school girls basketball. She scored 2,760 points - the 11th highest total in Missouri history - at Ash Grove High, joining current Lady Bears Hannah Wilkerson (first) and Whitney Edie (10th) among the state’s all-time top scorers.

hristopher Lewis joined the Lady Bear staff in June 2012 following a four-year stint as an assistant coach at Morgan State University. “Chris is a great addition to our staff,” Nyla Milleson said upon his hire. “He has experience as both a head and assistant coach, and is a basketball junkie whose ability to recruit and develop players will serve as a strong asset to the Lady Bear program.” While at Morgan State, Lewis served as the program’s recruiting coordinator and helped the team to a pair of second-place finishes in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and a WNIT appearance in 2011. Prior to Morgan State, Lewis spent three seasons as the head women’s coach at Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis, turning a program that had lost 73 consecutive games into an NAIA National Tournament participant in his second season before going 23-10 overall in 2007-08 with a No. 20 national ranking and NAIA Round of 16 appearance in his final year, upsetting No. 4 Oklahoma City University in the process. Lewis spent the 2004-05 season as an assistant at Missouri Baptist University, where he recruited two players who earned NAIA All-America status during their careers. Before joining Missouri Baptist, Lewis was a student assistant coach in the women’s and men’s programs at his alma mater, Emporia State. The women’s program compiled a 93-27 mark in four seasons, winning two Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association championships, making three trips to the national tournament and earning a Division II ranking as high as No. 2 in the nation during the 2001-02 and 2003-04 seasons. A native of St. Louis, Mo., Lewis received his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Emporia in 2003. Lewis married the former Albany Blakemore in September 2012.

Moats Resume Summary

Y

Kyle Moats was introduced as Missouri State University’s 10th director of athletics on May 28, 2009.

D

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 All-Sports 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 for the Bears’ 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.

Louisiana Tech, where opponents had lost more than 90-percent of the time over the previous 30 seasons, and grabbed a 78-65 victory behind 25 points and nine rebounds from Christiana Shorter to lead four players in double figures. A showdown with No. 9 Louisville at JQH Arena followed two days later and the Lady Bears acquitted themselves very well, even taking a 33-32 lead into halftime before the Cardinals’ size helped the visitors claim a 7364 win. Casey Garrison grabbed a game-high 14 rebounds against the physical Big East club, and the MSU defense held U of L to 37.5-percent shooting. A slow first half cost MSU in its next game, a Nov. 18 visit to Kansas State. The Lady Bears trailed by 14 at the break and were still down 13 points with five minutes remaining before a furious rally made the score 65-63 KSU with Missouri State in possession of the ball in the final seconds.

The preseason favorites for a second consecutive year, the Lady Bears had their fair share of ups and downs, but played their best with their backs against wall, producing a remarkable winning streak during league play to hoist the MVC trophy at season’s end. While their NCAA dreams eluded them thanks to an off shooting night at the MVC Tournament, the Lady Bears still completed Missouri State’s best season since 2005, going 24-9 overall and playing in the WNIT for a third consecutive season.

Three days later, the Lady Bears blew out eventual Sun Belt Conference Tournament champion Arkansas-Little Rock by a 73-50 final at JQH with the help of a 17-for-19 showing at the free throw line. Missouri State pushed its winning streak to three games and its overall record to 4-2 with an 81-70 over East Tennessee State on Dec. 6 at the Q. Garrison poured in 26 points and added seven assists to help MSU top the 43-percent shooting mark for the thrd straight game. The Lady Bears faced a two-day turnaround for what turned out to be the first of two trips to Stillwater to face Oklahoma State. Despite 21 points on seven treys from Jasmine Malone, Missouri State was out-matched by the Big 12’s Cowgirls, making just over 30-precent of its shots from the floor, including 8-for-32 from beyond the arc, while OSU made half of its field goal attempts.

The Evansville win marked the first of 11 consecutive wins, MSU’s longest streak since 2004, that eventually ended in a Missouri Valley Conference title. Missouri State returned to JQH on Jan. 27 and earned win No. 2 in 84-70 fashion against Indiana State. Four Lady Bears scored in double figures and Shorter nabbed a career-high seven steals in the win. Up next was Illinois State in a precursor of a huge game between the teams just

Against the Shockers, MSU found itself behind by 12 points early in the second half before clawing back within a single point on four occasions. Missouri State had the ball down 53-51 with one final chance, but could not get a shot off. Shorter scored her 1,000 career point in the contest and finished with 14 points and 13 rebounds. The road trip continued Jan. 19 at Southern Illinois with a stunning loss that would turn out to shape the Lady Bears’ season. The Salukis used 20-3 second-half run to snap a lengthy conference losing streak with a 7872 victory. With two nights to recover, Missouri State took the floor at Evansville with a new look. Bry Snow and Desiree Phillips were in the starting lineup after playing a combined 89 minutes in the season’s first 16 games, and the move worked to the tune of a 74-49 victory over the Purple Aces.

Two days later on New Year’s Eve in Cedar Falls, the Lady Bears struggled shooting from all over the floor in a 62-54 loss to UNI. In spite of the poor shooting performance, Missouri State trailed 55-54 on a Garrison basket with 2:15 to go before the Panthers closed on a 7-0 run.

UNI and Missouri State hooked up on March 1 at JQH, and the Lady Bears held the visitors to 32.8-percent shooting and placed four scorers in double figures, all coming off the bench. With their regular season goals achieved and 11 consecutive wins under their belt, the Lady Bears had only Senior Night remaining to honor the five players who meant so much to the program since their arrival in the fall of 2008. With plenty of emotion to go around and perhaps even a letdown from going six weeks without a loss, Bradley took an 86-69 win from the Lady Bears.

four weeks later. In Springfield, Missouri State trailed 35-27 at half before erupting for 56 points in the second period for an 83-68 win. Karly Buer scored 25 points on 10-of-12 shooting in one of many notable performances the sophomore point guard put up during the season’s second half. The second half of the league schedule began Feb. 2 at Drake in a game that was much closer than the 32-point MSU blowout in Springfield. Missouri State erased an eightpoint deficit with an 11-0 run early in the second period and Drake led again at 59-57 before Garrison scored the tying basket and Shorter went on a personal 6-0 run to take the lead for good. The Lady Bears then headed to Creighton, where they used s 14-0 run in the first half to take the lead for good. Buer’s 20 points led the way as she scored in double figures for the sixth consecutive game, good for MVC Player of the Week honors. Missouri State avenged its previous loss to Wichita State with a 85-67 win over the Shockers on Feb. 10. Buer scored 27 points while going 15-of-16 from the charity stripe, and the Lady Bears held a 48-23 rebounding margin. MSU completed its season sweep of Evansville a week later, winning 76-62 on the strength of 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting from a left-handed Garrison, who was forced to use her non-shooting hand due to a thumb injury.

the Evansville win and the Lady Bears were prepared to avenge yet another loss from earlier in the year. Missouri State forced a season-high 31 turnovers in an 81-61 victory and four players scored in double figures, including 17 from Garrison to secure a Valley Player of the Week nod. The final road trip of the regular season followed with a visit to the ISUs, beginning with Indiana State. The Lady Bears shot 61-percent in the second half to help overcome 20 turnovers in the game, while the defense stifled the Sycamores to shooting below 30-percent both overall and from 3-point land. MSU’s Feb. 26 game at Illinois State amounted to the de facto regular season championship game, and lived up to the billing with the Lady Bears coming away with an 80-76 overtime victory to secure at least a share of the conference title, and the No. 1 seed in the MVC Tournament once tie-breakers were factored in. The game featured 14 ties and 12 lead changes in the second half alone, and the Redbirds forced overtime with a 3-pointer with 25 seconds left in regulation. Garrison scored MSU’s first seven points of the extra frame, twice giving Missouri State the lead and canning a 3-pointer for a 76-all tie. The Lady Bears came up with a pair of defensive stops from there and Roberson and Malone sank two free throws apiece for the final margin. Even though Missouri State had a share of

Missouri State got an immediate shot at redemption against Bradley in the quarterfinal round of the conference tournament, grinding out a 58-54 victory after trailing most of the game thanks to four Buer free throws in the last 61 seconds. The win advanced Missouri State to a showdown with Creighton in the semis, where the Bluejays held MSU to its worst offensive game of the season. CU’s 7-0 run early in the second half gave the Bluejays the lead for good in a 56-47 game.

With their win at Illinois State on Feb. 26, the Lady Bears recorded their 20th victory of the season, marking the third straight year they have reached the plateau.

MSU’s five-player senior class of 2012 certainly left its mark, leading the Lady Bears to 80 wins in four seasons, culminating with an MVC championship, and three WNIT appearances during their careers. Statistically, their contributions were remarkable. Over four seasons, the quintet combined for 362 of a possible 655 starts (55.3 percent), 14,748 of a possible 26,250 minutes (56.2 percent), 5,585 of the team’s 9,236 points (60.5 percent), 2,368 of MSU’s 5,233 total rebounds (45.3 percent), and nearly two-thirds of the team’s assists at 1,188 of 1,804 (65.9 percent). Their impact is seen all over Missouri State’s record book. All five rank in the top 10 in career games played, with Boshe leading the way with 131 games played. Garrison finished her career second at MSU and third in MVC history with 2,271 career points while placing in the top 10 of 15 categories. Roberson (15th) and Malone (23rd) both joined the 1,000-point club, with Malone’s entry coming right down to the wire in the waning minutes of the season finale. Roberson leaves MSU third in career 3-pointers and first in attempts, and Malone ranks as the No. 8 foul shooter after making 83.1-percent of her career attempts.

For the third straight year, the Lady Bears were honored numerous times for the success both on and off the court. Garrison’s fourth consecutive first-team all-MVC selection headlined the list, as she became the sixth player in league history to earn the distinction four times. Garrison added MVC all-tournament recognition, as well as spot on the Naismith Preseason Watch List and her 13th MVC Player of the Week award during her senior campaign. Lacey Boshe became Missouri State’s ninth Academic All-America selection with a spot on the Capitol One Second Team, adding to an impressive list of scholastic achievements for the senior that included an Academic AllDistrict First Team nod, MVC Scholar-Athlete First Team selection, and being honored as the MVC Women’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Shorter earned all-league honors for the third year in a row, making both the Second Team and the Defensive Team. Buer was an MVC Scholar-Athlete First Team choice as well as the league’s player of the week on Feb. 6, while Roberson earned the league’s top weekly award on Jan. 9.

wins list. Missouri State’s 20-win season was its 17th in 43 years of varsity competition. In the 15 seasons it has reached the 20-win mark since joining the Division I ranks in 1982-83, MSU has advanced to the postseason on each occasion.

Though their ultimate goal of an NCAA Tournament berth did not come to fruition, the Lady Bears did earn a spot in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament for a third straight year and had to be on their game in the first round with a hungry UMKC squad paying a visit to JQH Arena. The Lady Bears were without Garrison for the first time in her career after making 128 starts, but the team still shot 55.6-percent from the floor in holding off a significant challenge from the Kangaroos. UMKC held late leads of 69-67 and 7471, the last of which was met by an 8-0 Lady Bear run that held for an 81-79 win. Memphis came to Springfield for the second round, boasting a physical and tough team that Lady Bears matched in an 82-65 rout. Malone scored 20 points and 12 players registered at least two points for MSU. A trip to Stillwater followed for a thirdround rematch of a December game between MSU and Oklahoma State at Gallagher-Iba Arena. The Cowgirls once again proved too much in a 70-57 victory, holding MSU to 30.2-percent shooting on their way to an eventual WNIT championship.

RUSTON, La. — The Missouri State Lady Bears shot a blistering 61.5 percent in the second half and outscored Louisiana Tech 52-38 in the game’s final 22-plus minutes on the way to a seasonopening 78-65 victory over the defending Western Athletic Conference champions Friday in Ruston, La. Jaleshia Roberson knocked three-pointers with 3:56, 2:09 and 1:15 remaining in the first half, the first coming with Missouri State trailing 23-19, and Karly Buer added another at the 2:43 mark as the Lady Bears knocked down four treys in under three minutes to seize momentum with a 36-30 halftime lead after using a 10-0 run to go from down 27-26 to up 36-27. Missouri State opened the second period on a 5-0 run for an 11-point advantage that was erased in part to Shantale BrambleDonaldson scoring six straight points for a 48-48 tie. MSU’s Whitney Edie answered that with a personal 7-0 run of her own that was met with a 7-0 Lady Techster run for another deadlock at 5555. Christiana Shorter got the lead back with a layup and added a steal and fast-break layup 43 seconds later to put MSU back ahead 61-55 as part of a 13-0 run for the Lady Bears for a 68-55 advantage with 5:50 left in the contest. The Lady Techsters got as close as 72-63 with 2:21 left, but that was answered with a traditional three-point play from Shorter at the 2:01 mark as the junior finished with game-highs of 20 points, nine rebounds and four steals. Missouri State shot 50.9 percent (28-55) from the floor after a 1-for-8 start, compared to 44.3 percent for the home team that included a 3-for-13 showing from long range for the Lady Techsters. MSU out-rebounded La. Tech 35-34 while collecting 10 steals and making 17 free throws in 24 tries compared to 8-of-14 for the Lady Techsters. Roberson finished with 18 points, Casey Garrison had 13 along with four assists, and Edie added 11 points and seven boards.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Missouri State trailed ninth-ranked Louisville for only one possession in the game’s first 30 minutes before the Cardinals took the lead for good with 9:32 left in the contest on the way to a 73-64 victory over the Lady Bears Sunday afternoon at JQH Arena. Missouri State (1-1) led by as many as 10 points in the first half when Lacey Boshe hit two free throw with 3:54 remaining to make it a 31-21 score, and held a 33-32 lead at the break as the No. 9 Cardinals closed the half on an 8-0 run. Louisville opened the second half with a steal and layup and held that one-point lead for just 55 seconds before Christiana Shorter tied the game with a free throw and Casey Garrison and Hannah Wilkerson hit back-to-back shots for a 38-34 lead. The Lady Bears pulled back ahead by seven on a Garrison layup with 11:51 left in the game, but the Cardinals regained the lead at 50-49 with an 8-0 run. The lead held for just 14 seconds before Wilkerson knocked down two free throws, and Cierra Warren regained the advantage for the visitors at 52-51 with 9:32 to play. Missouri State remained within three points until Becky Burke, who drained consecutive threes in Louisville’s run to end the first, hit another trey for a 61-56 lead and 5:21 on the clock. The Cardinals stole the ensuing inbounds pass and scored to lead by seven, and Warren accounted for four consecutive Louisville buckets over the next four minutes to keep the lead at 72-64 with a minute to play. MSU’s Jaleshia Roberson scored six straight points for the Lady Bears during that span to keep it close, the last making it 7064 with 1:24 left. Garrison finished with 15 points and 14 rebounds and joined Boshe in playing their 100th career games at Missouri State. Roberson scored 13 points to pass Tiff Terwelp for 21st all-time at Missouri State with 993 career points. Both teams shot below 40 percent from the field, with Louisville finishing at 37.5 and the Lady Bears at 35.6 percent. The teams combined for eight three-pointers (four each) in 42 attempts and 44 total turnovers, while the Cardinals out-rebounded the Lady Bears 51-42, thanks in large part to seven players in the rotation standing 6-foot-1 or taller. Shorter and Wilkerson each finished with 10 points, while Warren led the Cardinals with 18 points on 8-for-8 shooting in 12 minutes.

MANHATTAN, Kan. — The Missouri State women’s basketball team nearly overcame a 13-point deficit with less than five minutes to play, but missed several shots as time wound down on the final possession in a 65-63 loss at Kansas State Friday at Bramlage Coliseum in Manhattan, Kan. After making a total of seven three-pointers in their first two games, the Wildcats (3-0) buried eight triples in the first half in just 13 attempts, including seven of their first eight, on the way to a 41-27 halftime advantage. KSU jumped ahead 7-0 in just over a minute of action, guard Brittany Chambers hit her fifth three-ball at the 9:25 mark on the way to 20 points in the period, and the Wildcats led by as many as 16 at 29-13 and 33-17. Missouri State cut the lead in half with an 8-0 run that began with layup and free throw from Lacey Boshe and ended with five straight points from Casey Garrison for a 33-25 score with 3:14 to play in the first. Kansas State bombed in its eighth three-pointer 20 seconds later and pulled away to the 14-point lead at intermission. The Lady Bears (1-2) chopped 10 points off the KSU lead to open the second half while holding the Wildcats scoreless for the first 6:29 of the period. Jasmine Malone opened with two quick buckets and added a free throw between two Garrison free throws and a Garrison three as the senior pair evenly split the 10-0 run that closed the KSU lead to 41-37. Kansas State regrouped with a 7-0 run to go back up by 11 at 48-37 with 11:41 remaining, and the margin hovered in the 10-point range until Chambers hit another trey at 8:04 to make it 55-43 in favor of the Wildcats. With KSU up by 13 nearly four minutes later, Boshe connected on her second conventional three-point play of the contest and Garrison followed with a jumper in the lane on the next possession to cut the gap to 60-52 with 3:39 on the game clock. Christiana Shorter made it 62-56 with a fast break layup and 2:13 remaining and Garrison followed with a jumper in the lane to pull the Lady Bears within four for the first time since early in the half, but the following MSU possession resulted in a jump ball with possession favoring the Wildcats and 44.7 seconds left. Kansas State hit two free throws on that possession and Jaleshia Roberson drained a three-ball with 37.8 remaining for a 64-61 score, and Karly Buer stole the ball from KSU and laid it in 11 seconds later for a one-point game. The Wildcats hit a free throw and the Lady Bears missed four shots in the game’s final 10 seconds before time ran out. Despite Chambers’ hot-shooting for KSU, Garrison scored a game-high 26 points to go with eight rebounds, four assists and three steals. Shorter had nine points and 10 rebounds as MSU outrebounded the Wildcats 41-31. The Lady Bears shot 39.6 percent from the floor compared to 40.7 for KSU.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Missouri State’s women’s basketball team overcame a slow start Tuesday to defeat visiting East Tennessee State by an 81-70 final and improve to 4-2 with its third consecutive victory at JQH Arena. A 10-0 run in response to ETSU’s opening three-pointer put the Lady Bears ahead 10-3, with Casey Garrison and Jaleshia Roberson hitting three-pointers on back-to-back possessions to spark the early lead as the Lady Bucs missed seven consecutive field goals. The Lady Bucs (0-9) regrouped and tied the game at 14, 16 and 18 before sophomore guard Shawn Randall took over, scoring 10 points in 1:45 of game time. Randall was fouled on a made three-pointer, knocked down the free throw and then drained two more treys to give the visitors a 30-22 advantage with 5:14 remaining in the first half. Then it was Missouri State’s turn to run, with two Whitney Edie free throws at 4:54 starting an 11-0 spurt over the next 2:17. Garrison followed with two jumpers, Aly Stock added a pair of free throws and Desiree Phillips capped it with a three from the right corner at the 2:37 mark for a 33-30 MSU lead. Stock added a 17-foot jumper, Karly Buer hit two free throws and Garrison scooped in a shot at the buzzer as the Lady Bears closed the half on a 17-4 run to take a 39-34 lead into the break. ETSU’s Tarita Gordon hit a three to open the second half and Destiny Mitchell banked in a jumper with 15:27 remaining to pull the visitors within one at 46-45. The teams exchanged two-point possessions to 50-49 when Iesha Robertson rattled in a short jumper for a 51-50 ETSU lead with 13:09 left in the game. A Stock free throw and Garrison jumper tied the game at 53-53 and Lacey Boshe got the lead back at 55-53 with a bucket at the 11:07 mark. The Lady Bucs tied again before Garrison and Stock hit long jumpers for a 59-55 lead at 9:45, with Stock’s serving as her sixth and seventh points to best her previous career high of six. Garrison hit a three and a long two on MSU’s next two possessions, each time putting the Lady Bears ahead by five, and Jasmine Malone drained a trey with 7:02 left for a 67-59 cushion. The Lady Bucs quickly cut the gap to three points in the next 90 seconds, and trailed by three again at 69-66 with 3:06 remaining before Boshe and Stock hit consecutive shots in the lane to lead 73-66 with 2:03 to play. ETSU followed with a steal and a bucket that was answered 14 seconds later by a Garrison layup, and the Lady Bucs got no closer than that five-point deficit. Garrison’s game-high 26 points moved her past former Lady Bear Jenni Lingor for fourth in school and 10th in Missouri Valley Conference history. Boshe posted season highs of 13 points, eight rebounds and four assists, Malone pulled down eight rebounds and Phillips had five points, four boards and two assists in a career-best 17 minutes. Missouri State shot 46 percent from the floor and had 14 assists on 15 made baskets in the second half and 23 helpers in the game. The Lady Bears shot 18-for-21 from the foul line compared to 3-for-3 for ETSU.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The Missouri State Lady Bears used a pair of key scoring runs and some stingy defense to take control early against UALR, then came up with a big finish to thwart the Trojans’ comeback bid in a 73-50 MSU victory Tuesday evening at JQH Arena. After UALR used a 24-7 second-half scoring run to cut a 30-point deficit down to 13 with just under five minutes to play, the Lady Bears (3-2) turned to their top three scorers to ice the contest. Casey Garrison, Jaleshia Roberson and Christiana Shorter combined for 12 points down the stretch, as MSU outscored the Trojans 14-4 in the final 4:42 to wrap up the win. Garrison finished with a game-high 18 points to go along with four assists and two steals, while Jasmine Malone added 13 points and game highs of nine rebounds and three steals. Roberson also posted a double-digit scoring effort, totaling 13 points and a gamehigh five assists. The 23-point decision came after one of Missouri State’s best halves of basketball to open the game. Led by a .486 (18-of-37) collective shooting effort from the field, the Lady Bear offense was clicking early, as five different Lady Bears accounted for a total of 14 assists on MSU’s 18 makes from the floor. Roberson tallied eight straight points during a 10-0 Lady Bear scoring run that handed the home team an early eight-point advantage just minutes into the contest. Garrison initiated the spurt with a runner in the lane 49 seconds into the game, and Roberson drained back-to-back treys before converting a layup off a steal to make it a 10-2 ballgame. After UALR’s Taylor Gault drew the Trojans to within five via a conventional three-point play, MSU reeled off a 24-6 run over an eight-minute span to push its lead to 23 points. Garrison powered the outburst by canning a pair of threes, and Malone followed with five straight points to cap the spurt, sinking the Lady Bears’ fifth three of the half at the 7:16 mark to stretch the margin to 34-11. The Lady Bears’ lead never dipped below 19 the rest of the half, with Malone’s steal and feed to Lacey Boshe for a layup with just eight seconds to go capping the scoring and handing MSU its biggest lead of the game. Missouri State expanded the gap to 30 points in the early stages of the second half, getting a Garrison layup and four Malone free throws to claim a 52-22 advantage with just over 16 minutes to play. The Trojans would score the next 11 points to cut the margin to 19 and Janette Merriex brought the Trojans to within 56-41 by hitting a pair of threes before Kursh added a three-point play, and Taylor Ford banked home a 19-footer with just under five minutes to play to pul the visitors to within 13. That’s when Shorter went to work, scoring the next five points over a one-minute, 13-second stretch that gave Missouri State all the breathing room it would need. Garrison added a short jumper and a pair of free throws, and Roberson put the final nail in UALR’s coffin with her third three-pointer of the night with 1:26 left to make it a 22-point game. The Lady Bears converted 17-of-19 (.895) free throw attempts, including 12-of-13 in the second half, and outscored UALR by a 34-14 margin in the paint.

TULSA, Okla. — Led by Christiana Shorter’s career-high 27-point afternoon, the Missouri State Lady Bears built a 19-point first-half lead, then survived a late Oral Roberts rally to notch an 85-79 victory over the Golden Eagles Saturday afternoon at the Mabee Center. In addition to Shorter’s career game, Casey Garrison chipped in 22 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in the win, which evened MSU’s season record at 2-2, while ORU suffered its first loss in six games. Missouri State shot a blistering .568 (21-of-37) from the floor in the first half and outscored ORU 31-11 over a 10-minute stretch to take command of a back-and-forth game. The Lady Bears, who led by as many as 19 points, connected on 7-of-13 attempts from threepoint range to overcome 13 first-half turnovers. Shorter converted 6-of-9 tries from the field, while Garrison went 5-of-7 to lead the MSU offense. Despite the large lead, the Lady Bears had to bear down late to clinch the victory. Missouri State led 63-44 with 15:42 to play when ORU kicked off a 14-4 run that made it a contest once again. Three-pointers from Kevi Luper and Christian Key pulled the Golden Eagles to within 11, and Jordan Pyle’s bucket with 10:20 left on the clock punctuated the run. MSU had an answer, as Garrison scored on back-to-back possessions for MSU, and Lacey Boshe and Christiana Shorter also converted in the paint to stretch the lead back to 13 points. The Golden Eagles had one final push in them, connecting from downtown four times in the final 5:19 to ultimately cut the margin to 83-79 with 37 ticks left on the clock. But the Lady Bears held on thanks to a pair of Shorter free throws and some solid defense that forced a pair of late misses by ORU to end the threat. Both teams came out of the gate firing, as Luper and MSU’s Jaleshia Roberson possessed the hot hand for their respective squads in the early stages of the game. Luper accounted for the Golden Eagles’ first seven points, including a three-pointer at the 17:21 mark that handed the home team a 7-6 advantage. But Roberson, who scored nine of MSU’s first 10 points over the first 3:17, heated up from long-range to give the Lady Bears an early advantage. The senior drained her first three attempts from beyond the three-point arc, becoming the 21st player in school history to top the 1,000 career point mark in the process. Shorter got into the act just before the first media timeout of the contest, as her bucket in the paint kicked off the Lady Bears key scoring run and began a stretch that would see the junior tally all 13 of her first-half points over the ensuing eight minutes. MSU extended its lead to 41-22 on a Garrison three with 5:44 left on the clock before the Golden Eagles would use an 8-0 run to draw to within 11. But the Lady Bears once again kicked their offense into high gear, responding with eight unanswered points of their own to re-establish a 19-point cushion. MSU (.508) shot better than 50 percent from the floor for the second time in three road games this season and outrebounded the Golden Eagles by a commanding 46-31 margin.

STILLWATER, Okla. — The Missouri State women’s basketball team got off to a fast start Thursday at Oklahoma State but sputtered over the game’s final 33 minutes in an 80-57 loss to the Cowgirls at Gallagher-Iba Arena. The game began at a furious pace with the Lady Bears (4-3) grabbing a quick six-point lead less than four minutes in. Jasmine Malone drained a pair of threes, the second for an 8-5 lead that was followed on the next possession by Jaleshia Roberson hitting a three-ball at the 16:16 mark. OSU (5-0) point guard Tiffany Bias capped a 6-0 run with a steal and layup with 13:19 left in the half to put the Cowgirls ahead 1514 before Malone hit her fourth triple, a career high, 10 seconds later for a 17-15 MSU advantage. The Lady Bears shot 6-of-11 from the field up to that point before falling off to make just 14 of their final 55 shots to finish at 30.3 percent for the game, including a final 8-for-32 figure from long range. The Cowgirls responded with 10-0 run while holding the Lady Bears scoreless over the next 7:05 before Malone hit a fifth trey to make it 25-20, but OSU extended the run to 14-3 to take a 29-20 lead with 4:16 until halftime. Oklahoma State outscored the Lady Bears 6-5 to close the half for a 34-24 lead as Missouri State hoisted 18 threes in the period, making six, while hold OSU to 0-for-12 from beyond the arc but 16-for-25 from two-point range. After a scoreless first half, Casey Garrison opened up the second with a basket, and the Cowgirls bucked their first period trend from long range by knocking in three-pointers 13 seconds apart to grow their lead to 40-26 with 18:39 left in the game. The teams traded two baskets and Christiana Shorter, who was also held scoreless in the first stanza, scored five straight points to pull the Lady Bears back within single digits at 42-33 with 17:35 to play. OSU answered with an 8-0 run to go ahead 50-33, and Shorter hit four more free throws to make it nine straight points before Regan Soldner hit from close range to make it 57-39 with 12:10 left. Oklahoma State kept the lead between 18 and 23 points from there until Garrison hit two free throws with 4:14 left to make it 71-55. Malone eventually hit seven three-balls (in 10 tries) on the night on the way to a game-high 21 points. While her three-point total fell four shy of the school record, it was just the 14th time in Missouri State history that a player made at least that many triples in a game. Shorter added 11 points and six rebounds, while Garrison had boards and four assists. Bias led the Cowgirls with 19 points and 11 assists to increase her NCAA-leading total.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The Missouri State Lady Bears led by 20 points early in the second half and visiting North Texas cut the lead to three points late in the game when senior Casey Garrison came up with a blocked shot before scoring eight consecutive points to help secure a 78-67 victory Sunday afternoon at JQH Arena. The Mean Green’s (7-4) furious rally pulled the visitors to 66-63 with 3:56 remaining and a steal put the ball in UNT’s hands when Garrison blocked Kasondra Foreman’s shot at 3:13 and scored the game’s next eight points on the way to a 74-63 lead and season-high 29 points on the afternoon. Missouri State (5-3) held North Texas scoreless on its first 11 possessions with the help of eight Mean Green turnovers on the way to a 10-0 lead. Jaleshia Roberson’s three at 17:44 made it 7-0 and Garrison added a three-point play with 15:24 left in the half before UNT finally scored with 14:36 on the clock to make it 10-2. The Lady Bears answered that bucket with a 6-1 run to lead 16-3, Christiana Shorter’s layup and free throw at the 11:51 mark kept the lead at 13 points, and Garrison knocked in a trey at 9:36 to make it 25-11 after UNT had closed the gap to single digits a minute earlier. North Texas responded with an 8-0 run that Whitney Edie ended with a pair of free throws for a 27-19 score at the 7:43 mark, and the Mean Green followed with a three-pointer 30 seconds later to close the gap to five points before Garrison hit a jumper, Hannah Wilkerson hit two free throws and Shorter had a steal and layup, all over a 29 second span, to put the Lady Bears up 33-22 with 5:13 left in the half. Another MSU fast break that Jasmine Malone ended with a layup extended the run to 8-0 before a UNT free throw stopped it with the score at 35-23 with 3:37 left. The Mean Green hit a three to close to nine points but added only a free throw from there as MSU closed the period on an 8-1 run to take their largest lead of the game into the break at 43-27 behind 16 points from Garrison. Edie and Shorter scored out of the break to make the run 12-1 over two halves and put MSU ahead by 20 at 47-27. Runs of 6-0 and 7-0 helped UNT close the MSU lead to 53-41 at 15:09 before Malone hit a long two-pointer and Wilkerson added two free throws for a 57-41 advantage and 12:35 left in the game. North Texas outscored the Lady Bears 8-2 over the next three minutes to cut the lead to 10 points when Garrison rattled in a three from the corner at 8:51 for 62-49 advantage, but the Mean Green scored two quick buckets in the next 45 seconds to get back within single digits for the first time since the 2:02 mark in the first half. Only a pair of Edie free throws at 7:48 broke up what would have been an 8-0 UNT run that cut the lead to 64-57 with seven minutes to go, and two more North Texas layups followed a Shorter bucket for a 66-61 score and 4:43 on the clock as the Mean Green’s full-court pressure continued to fluster the Lady Bears before Garrison took over. Garrison passed the 1,900 career point barrier, Malone became the fifth active player to see action in 100 career games, and Shorter added 15 points on 7-for-10 shooting,

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The Missouri State Lady Bears (6-3) set JQH Arena women’s basketball records for points in a half (64) and game (104) Sunday afternoon in a 104-74 victory over Morgan State (2-5) in the final non-conference home game of the regular season. Missouri State (6-3) topped the 100-point mark for the 16th time in school history and first since March 8, 2003, tying for the No. 9 single-game point total while also setting arena records for field goals (38), shooting percentage (.543, 38-70), three-pointers (12) and assists (28).

Missouri State shot 23-for-40 and had 19 assists on the way to a 64-37 halftime lead, and out-rebounded Morgan State 48-36 on the afternoon. Morgan State shot 33.8 percent on 74 field goal tries.

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — The Missouri State Lady Bears struggled shooting the ball from all areas of the floor and posted a season-low in points Saturday in a 62-54 loss at defending Missouri Valley Conference champion Northern Iowa at the McLeod Center in Cedar Falls. The Lady Bears (8-4, 1-1 MVC) mounted a furious rally in the second half, closing to one point after trailing by 14 with less than 10 minutes to play, but could not overcome 33.8 percent shooting from the field, 22.7 from three-point range and 35.7 from the foul line along with a 24-14 foul deficit. UNI (8-5, 1-1) shot 42 percent and hit 10 more free throws than MSU while four players scored in double figures. Missouri State opened the game 1-for-9 from the field with three turnovers that led to a 12-2 deficit 5:32 into the contest, and were never closer than 17-14 in the rest of the first period. UNI responded with a 9-0 run to open up its biggest lead at 26-14 before Malone stopped it with a trey and 5:52 on the clock, but Katelin Oney answered with a long ball of her own on the next possession to push UNI’s advantage back to 12 at 29-17. Regan Soldner and Casey Garrison scored two quick baskets to close the gap to 29-21 as MSU held the Panthers scoreless for three minutes before a free throw made it 30-21 with 2:33 left. Nearly three minutes elapsed before either team scored in the second half and Rachel Madrigal hit a three-pointer with 16:41 left to give UNI its largest lead at 41-27. The Panthers kept the lead in double figures until Jaleshia Roberson drained a three-pointer with 7:37 to play for a 49-40 score. UNI knocked down two free throws and Garrison hit back-to-back layups to pull MSU to 51-44 with 5:20 on the game clock. Another defensive stop led to Wilkerson’s running bank shot for a five-point deficit and two Garrison free throws did the same for a 53-48 score and 4:11 remaining. Wilkerson then hit two free throws at 2:51 to get MSU within one possession at 55-52 and Garrison banked in a runner at 2:15 for a 55-54 score before UNI hit a layup and then a jumper following an ill-timed MSU turnover to go back up 59-54 with 1:22 left. The Lady Bears came up empty on their next three possessions and UNI hit three more free throws to close the game on a 7-0 run. Garrison scored 18 points to go with eight rebounds, seven assists and four blocks to finish the game one point shy of 2,000 for her career. Wilkerson hit a career-high 12 points, Shorter pulled down nine rebounds and Soldner had seven boards, though UNI held a 44-38 lead in that category.

PEORIA, Ill. — Missouri State closed the first half on a 12-0 run and got 14 points from Christiana Shorter in the second period Thursday to open Missouri Valley Conference play with a 79-70 victory over Bradley at Renaissance Coliseum in Peoria, Ill. Shorter scored 24 points and pulled down nine rebounds, making 10 free throws and 7-of-14 shots from the field as the Lady Bears improved to 8-3 and 1-0 in league. Bradley fell to 9-4 and 0-1 after entering the contest with the MVC’s best overall record. The Lady Bears controlled much of the first half minus a six-minute stretch in the middle portion, closing the first period on a 12-0 run over the final 2:43 to lead 42-26. A three-point play by Whitney Edie followed by consecutive Jasmine Malone layups made for a 7-0 run over 31 seconds and an early 9-3 lead for the Lady Bears, and after Malone’s third steal and a Jaleshia Roberson three-pointer at the 16:53 mark Missouri State led 14-5. Bradley cut the gap to six points on two occasions after that, but MSU answered with a Roberson three the first time and Shorter and Lacey Boshe hit consecutive layups the second for a 23-13 score and 12:06 on the clock. Only a turnaround jumper from Boshe broke up two Bradley three-pointers and five free throws from the Braves as the home team cut the lead to 25-24 with an 11-2 run that ended at the 5:53 mark. Roberson stopped the run with two free throws and added a threepointer on the next possession for a 30-24 advantage, and Bradley hit a layup with 3:35 left before going scoreless for the remainder of the period as Missouri State got four more points from Shorter, four from Casey Garrison and two each from Roberson and Hannah Wilkerson to close on a 12-0 run. Bradley opened the second half on a 7-2 run and shaved 11 points off the lead by the 12:24 mark at 47-42 as MSU picked up its seventh team foul in less than six minutes of action. Shorter answered with a free throw and a layup for a 50-42 lead at 11:04, as she scored MSU’s first eight points of the period and added her ninth and 10th with another layup at 9:57 for a 54-44 advantage. Two Karly Buer free throws and another from Shorter made it a 7-0 run and 14-point lead before Bradley cut it to single digits at 63-54 at 5:22 thanks to a pair of putbacks by Leah Kassing. Garrison scored for the Lady Bears before Kassing hit another jumper and two free throws to close the MSU lead to 65-58 with 4:24 to play, but Roberson answered with four free throws to get the lead back in double figures at 69-58 with 3:33 on the clock, and Malone threw in a turnaround three-pointer as the shot clock went off on the next possession for a 72-60 advantage. Shorter hit another free throw and Garrison added two over the next minute for a 13-point lead that salted the game away.

JONESBORO, Ark. — Missouri State (7-3) overcame significant second-half foul trouble and a late rally from Arkansas State (57) Tuesday to come away with a 77-68 road victory over the Red Wolves at the Convocation Center in Jonesboro, Ark. Missouri State picked up its 10th team foul with 9:18 to play and a 61-55 lead and after ASU knocked down both free throws to close the gap to four, Lacey Boshe hit a jumper and Jaleshia Roberson converted a four-point play with her seventh three of the game for a 67-57 lead and 8:02 to play. Jasmine Malone then picked up her fourth foul with 7:09 left, joining Shorter on the bench with four fouls, and ASU quickly cut the lead to six points at 67-61. Roberson then picked up her fourth personal foul on an ASU basket that made it 69-65 with 4:19 left, and Boshe snagged a steal on an ASU fast break a minute later to set up Garrison’s jumper for a 71-65 lead with 2:46 left. The Red Wolves countered with a layup and then a free throw as Roberson fouled out for a 71-68 score and 1:24 remaining before Garrison found a wide open Malone under the basket for a layup and 73-68 lead with 1:02 left. MSU sealed it from there, as Boshe made one of two free throws with MSU getting the offensive rebound and a layup from Stock before ASU missed shots on consecutive possessions and Hannah Wilkerson hit a free throw for the nine-point win. Roberson hit a pair of early three-pointers for leads of 6-5 and 9-7, while six lead changes and a trio of 5-0 runs followed over the next 2:31 that resulted in a 21-17 lead on Aly Stock’s layup at the 11:21 mark. The Red Wolves grabbed the momentum from there as turnovers plagued the Lady Bears during a 9-0 ASU run that Casey Garrison stopped with a long two-pointer for her 10th point and a 26-23 score with 8:01 on the clock. Arkansas State extended its run to 17-4 when Jane Morrill hit a contested three-pointer at the 5:51 mark for her 17th point of the half to make the score 34-25 before Boshe hit a free throw and Roberson drained consecutive treys from each corner to make it 34-32 less than two minutes later on the way to a 41-40 halftime lead for the home team. The Lady Bears shot 57.7 percent in the first half, going 15for-26 overall and 8-for-14 from long range while assisting on 14 buckets. Missouri State also committed 13 turnovers in a period in which there were two ties and 10 lead changes. Buer and Christiana Shorter hit consecutive baskets for a seven-point lead at 57-50 and some breathing room for MSU with 13:42 remaining. Garrison missed a three to end her streak of nine straight makes and the Red Wolves rattled off four quick points before Garrison hit a layup but then missed the free throw to end a streak of 27 makes at the charity stripe, leaving the score 59-54 MSU with 11:55 to play. Roberson finished with 22 points and her seven threes tied for the No. 7 single-game total in MSU history. Garrison scored 18 with six assists as MSU shot over 50 percent for the second straight game (52.5, 31-59) and hit 10 triples. The MSU defense held ASU to 25.8 percent from the field in the second half and 36.5 for the game.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Missouri State (9-4, 2-1 Missouri Valley Conference) outscored visiting Creighton (6-7, 0-2) by five points in each half and picked up its second league win in three tries with a 70-60 victory over the Bluejays Thursday evening at JQH Arena. A tight game early was highlighted by Casey Garrison’s 2,000th career point on a layup with 13:50 on the clock, and neither team led by as many as three points until Jaleshia Roberson’s second three-pointer made it 17-13 with 9:13 left, as three ties and six lead changes marked a back-and-forth game up to that point. Garrison, who finished the game with 14 points, six rebounds and seven assists, became the fifth player in MVC history and third at Missouri State to reach the 2,000-point plateau. Roberson canned another trey on the next possession after a Creighton basket for a 20-15 lead, her 1,100th career point, Christiana Shorter added a layup at 8:20, and Casey Garrison hit two free throws to extend MSU’s run to 13-2 before a CU bucket at 6:59 made the score 24-17 Lady Bears. The Bluejays then got a steal and hit a triple to cut the gap to four points, and Carli Tritz hit a three at 3:51 to close the visitors within 28-25. Roberson answered with a fourth three-ball to lead 33-26 with 2:07 to play, and the Lady Bears went into half with a 33-28 advantage despite making two fewer field goals than CU. Missouri State out-rebounded the Jays 18-14 and held a 9-1 advantage from the foul line in the first period. Creighton’s Jordan Garrison hit back-to-back threes out of the break to quickly put the Jays ahead 34-33 as they eventually pushed their run to 10-0 over both halves and led 36-33 with 18:16 to play. Two Shorter layups and another from Roberson got the lead back for MSU at 39-38 with 15:30 to play, and Casey Garrison and Shorter hit two more shots in the next minute to make for a 10-2 MSU run and 43-38 lead for the Lady Bears. The Lady Bears went scoreless over the next 3:55 but CU was only able to score two points in the interim as Roberson’s runner at 10:24 got the lead back to five at 45-40. The teams traded baskets to 49-44 before Lacey Boshe rolled a short jumper over the rim at 7:54 for a 51-44 advantage, and Aly Stock’s layup at 6:53 gave MSU its largest lead of the game at 54-46. Creighton cut the lead in half with two quick buckets in the next minute, but the Lady Bears responded by making six consecutive free throws to push make the score 60-50 with 4:17 to play. Taylor Johnson’s trey with 1:16 left brought CU to within six points at 6256, and the Jays cut the lead to five on two occasions before the Lady Bears broke the press for a Boshe layup with 25 seconds left and Roberson intercepted a pass on CU’s next possession before making three free throws in the final 17 seconds to cap a seasonhigh 25-point night. Roberson connected on 7-of-9 shots from the floor, including 4-of-6 from three-point land, and made 7-of-8 free throws. Shorter had 14 points and eight boards, and Boshe made four of her five field goals for eight points.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Missouri State (10-4, 3-1 Missouri Valley Conference) scored the first 15 points of the game and limited Drake (7-7, 1-2) to 21.8 percent shooting in a 78-46 victory Saturday evening at JQH Arena. The Lady Bears tied an arena record by allowing 46 points, which was also an opponent season low along with DU’s shooting percentage (.218), field goals made (12), three-pointers made (2), three-point percentage (.143) and assists (5). Christiana Shorter had four points and four rebounds in the game’s first two minutes and Jaleshia Roberson drained a pair of threes to propel to Lady Bears to a 15-0 lead as Drake began the game 0-for-8 from the field with four turnovers before scoring with 13:53 on the clock to make the score 15-2. Roberson’s third trey made it 18-2 out of the ensuing media timeout, and the lead grew to 20 points at 28-8 when Aly Stock put in a jumper with 6:13 remaining in the period. The Lady Bears pushed the advantage to as many as 22 points on two occasions before an 11-2 Drake run took the score from 32-10 at 4:57 to 34-21 with 38 seconds left. Casey Garrison hit a trey with 20 seconds left for a 37-21 halftime lead. Eight Lady Bears scored in the first period and the team shot 16of-29 (55.2 percent) while holding Drake to 7-of-31 (22.6 percent). Missouri State began the second half on a 7-2 run to lead 44-23 and Lacey Boshe gave the Lady Bears their largest lead yet at 51-28 with a layup at the 13:33 mark after the Bulldogs had closed the gap to 18 points. Garrison’s third trey in as many tries made it 56-32 10:57 left and MSU held Drake scoreless for over three minutes before a three-pointer made it 58-35 with 8:10 to go. Roberson’s fifth three-pointer of the night came with 6:15 to play and tied her with Jackie Stiles for fourth-place at MSU with 221 threes while making the score 61-37, and the senior added two free throws on MSU’s next possession for a 26-point lead. Roberson then passed Stiles with a sixth three-ball minutes later and finished the game with 22 points on 7-of-11 shooting, including 6-for-10 from deep with five assists. In all, 12 Lady Bears scored, including Bry Snow’s first MSU points with two late baskets. Garrison added 16 on 6-for-10 shooting, and Shorter had eight to go with nine rebounds. Jasmine Malone hauled in eight boards as MSU trailed the league’s top rebounding club by a 39-37 margin. Missouri State shot 54.1 percent overall (33-61) and made nine of its 18 three-point attempts. Drake did outscore MSU 20-3 from the foul line, an odd statistic considering the final score.

WICHITA, Kan. — Missouri State battled back from a 12-point second-half deficit at Wichita State Saturday before missing two shots for the tie and the win in the final seconds of a 53-51 setback in Missouri Valley Conference play at Koch Arena in Wichita, Kan. The Lady Bears had the final possession and missed their first try for the tie, but the rebound went out of bounds of the Shockers with 3.6 seconds on the clock. The ensuing inbounds pass rolled through everyone on the floor untouched and went out of bounds next to the MSU bench for Wichita State’s possession. WSU inbounded, was fouled and missed its first free throw and Casey Garrison’s half-court heave was on line but came up short, grazing the bottom of the net as it went by. The Lady Bears committed 15 turnovers in the first period, including six before the first media timeout on the way to a 7-3 deficit. Lacey Boshe’s free throw at the 14:05 mark capped a 5-0 MSU run and gave the Lady Bears their first lead at 8-7, and the teams exchanged baskets before an 8-0 Shocker run made it 17-10 in favor of the home team. Whitney Edie’s layup with 7:24 remaining in the half broke a 5:54 scoreless streak for the Lady Bears, and Boshe and Bry Snow hit shots in the final three minutes of the period to pull Missouri State within one point each time before WSU scored for a 23-20 halftime margin. Missouri State shot 40.9 percent in the first half compared to 39.3 for WSU and held a 19-13 rebounding advantage, but trailed by six in turnovers, leading to the three-point deficit. The Lady Bears cut WSU’s lead to a single point twice early in the second half, including Christiana Shorter’s 1,000th career point on a layup at the 18:54 mark for a 25-24 score. The Shockers answered that with a 15-4 run over the next 5:24 to open up a 40-28 advantage before Desiree Phillips stopped it with a free throw. Shorter scored four more points from there to make the score 40-33, and, after the Shockers got a layup to lead by nine again, the Lady Bears ripped off an 8-0 run capped by Shorter’s driving layup that made the score 42-41 WSU with 7:01 to play. Another Shorter bucket made it 44-43 as the Lady Bears got within one point for a fourth time in the second period, but the Shockers answered with a 6-0 run to over two minutes to lead 50-43 with 3:58 to play. Garrison hit a pair of free throws and a long jumper to make it 50-47 and drained another in response to WSU’s make for a 52-49 score and 1:28 to go. The senior made it eight straight MSU points with a shot for 53-51 and 49 seconds left, and Shorter’s 12th rebound gave the Lady Bears the final possession down two points. Shorter notched her 19th career double-double with 14 points and 13 rebounds as MSU led the Shockers by a 39-25 margin on the boards. Garrison finished with 12 points and Edie had six points and six boards. The Lady Bears ended the game with 24 turnovers.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Missouri State had four players score in double figures and two more finish with nine points Friday in an 84-70 victory over Missouri Valley Conference rival Indiana State at JQH Arena. The Lady Bears forced 21 turnovers and out-rebounded the Sycamores by a 46-36 margin to improve to 7-1 at home. Missouri State made eight of its first 12 shots from the field in building a 20-9 lead over the Sycamores. Deja Mattox kept ISU close, hitting her first six tries from threepoint range, scoring ISU’s first 11 points and totaling 20 by the time she tied the game at 25-25 with a triple with 9:28 left in the half. The Lady Bears scored five quick points on a Regan Soldner jumper and Jaleshia Roberson’s second three-pointer to lead 3025, but then went cold, scoring no points over the next 3:27 until Karly Buer converted a three-point play for a 33-29 advantage and 5:06 left. Casey Garrison scored MSU’s next four points to make it a 37-29 lead and a 7-0 run for the home team, and Roberson hit a third trey followed by two Christiana Shorter free throws for a 42-31 lead with 3:07 on the clock. Indiana State whittled the MSU lead down to 45-41 by halftime, connecting on 9-of-15 from beyond the arc in the first period. The Lady Bears overcame ISU’s long range shooting by making 16-of35 field goals and holding a 21-17 rebounding edge. Six Lady Bears scored at least four points in the first half. Missouri State’s lead remained at four points with 16:54 to go when the Lady Bears went on a 6-0 run with three different players scoring to open up a 10-point advantage at 56-46 and 15:44 remaining in the game. Indiana State cut the lead to seven on two occasions before Desiree Phillips hit a three with 10:36 left to provide MSU with its largest lead of the second half at 63-51 while establishing her career high with nine points. The MSU lead was halved just 90 seconds later and Mattox drained a seventh triple with 6:58 on the clock to make it 63-60. Buer stopped the 9-0 run with a jumper in the lane on the Lady Bears’ next possession and Shorter came up with a steal and layup 21 seconds later to get the score back to 67-60. A Bry Snow free throw and Garrison layup completed a 7-0 run that ended with MSU leading 70-60 and 4:34 remaining. Indiana State scored the next four points to close to six, but the Lady Bears quickly went back ahead by 10 and then got four straight points from Shorter for a 78-66 lead with 1:59 to play. The Sycamores failed to get closer than 10 from there as Roberson knocked four free throws in the final 24 seconds for the 14-point win. Roberson led MSU with 19 points, Shorter added 18 along with seven rebounds and a career-high seven steals. Mattox scored 31 for the Sycamores, who made just 2-of-12 from distance in the second half.

Making her first career start, Bry Snow powered the Lady Bears early, scoring the team’s first four points, hitting a three-pointer at the 16:19 mark and then scoring a layup with 14:55 to play that sparked a 9-0 MSU run for a 20-9 lead after Karly Buer’s jumper with 13:05 to play. Snow easily surpassed her previous career high of four points with nine in the game. The run extended to 13-2 when the Lady Bears went ahead 2411, and UE went through a 3:34 scoreless drought after a basket for 24-13 as Missouri State extended its lead to 15 points before an Evansville score made it 28-15 with 7:27 left. The Purple Aces then hit a trey to close to 10 points, but the Lady Bears ripped off 5-0 run in 37 seconds to lead 33-18 and closed the period on another 5-0 run for a 38-22 halftime margin. Seven players scored in the first half as MSU held Evansville to 27.3 percent shooting and grabbed 30 rebounds to UE’s 20. Buer scored to open the second half for MSU, extending the Lady Bears’ run to 7-0 over two halves while UE’s scoreless drought climbed to 5:11 before the Aces scored to make it 40-24 with 17:46 to play. That basket would prove to be Evansville’s only points in nearly nine minutes of game time as the Lady Bears went on a 9-0 to lead 49-24 before UE stopped with two free throws and 14:24 left in the game. Two minutes later, Casey Garrison drained a mid-range jumper to pass Kari Koch for second on Missouri State’s all-time scoring list and fourth in MVC history, making the score 53-26 with 12:30 to play. Garrison finished the contest with 15 points for 2,076 in her career, and is now 63 behind Kristi Cirone for third in MVC history, where she will likely finish as No. 2 Wanda Ford scored 2,636 career points and leader Jackie Stiles netted 3,393. Missouri State led by 27 three times before Jaleshia Roberson hit back-to-back three-pointers for a 63-35 advantage and 8:07 to play. Evansville’s 7-0 run pulled the home team within 21 points at 63-42, the Lady Bears responded with a 6-0 run to go back ahead 69-42, and NiJay Gaines recorded her first points in a Lady Bear uniform with a layup at the 2:37 mark for a 72-44 lead. The Lady Bears corralled a season-high 50 rebounds, including 21 offensive, to 39 for UE as nine players pulled down at least three boards. Buer netted a season-high 12 points along with a careerbest five assists, and Desiree Phillips scored four points in her first career start.

CARBONDALE, Ill. — Southern Illinois used a 20-3 second-half run to turn an eight-point deficit into a nine-point lead and held off Missouri State late to earn a 78-72 victory over the Lady Bears and snap a 24-game Missouri Valley Conference losing streak Thursday at SIU Arena. Missouri State’s (10-6, 3-3) three-point halftime lead had been cut to one at 48-47 when Christiana Shorter converted a three-point play, Jaleshia Roberson hit two free throws and Lacey Boshe scored a putback layup for a 7-0 run and 55-47 lead with 12:07 remaining. The Salukis (4-13, 1-6) took over from there, going on an 11-0 run in just 2:07 of game time to lead 58-55 and extending the run to 20-3 and their lead to 67-58 with 5:18 left to play. Shorter hit four consecutive free throws to pull MSU within 67-62 and Teri Oliver answered with her school-record seventh three-pointer to make it 70-62. Missouri State scratched and clawed, eventually closing to within one possession on Karly Buer’s bucket with 56 seconds left that made it 75-72, but SIU was bailed out by an MSU foul to end the next possession and made two free throws that sealed it. The Lady Bears shot just 9-of-31 in the second half and 39 percent in the game, losing for the first time this season when scoring 70 points. SIU shot 48 percent for the game and buried 11 three-pointers while MSU went 0-for-11 from beyond the arc. Oliver led all scorers with 28 points, going 7-for-8 from threepoint land. Shorter scored 22 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for her second consecutive double-double, while Casey Garrison scored 20 with eight rebounds and Buer added a season-best 10 points. Missouri State led the rebounding battle 44-41, including 21 offensive boards, and committed 16 turnovers to 23 for the Salukis. Shorter and Oliver battled to the first media timeout, each scoring six points with Shorter adding five early rebounds as the Salukis led 9-7. Southern Illinois scored four straight out of the timeout to lead 13-7 and Garrison hit a long two-pointer at the 11:54 mark for a 15-15 tie. Oliver drained her third and fourth treys of the half to help SIU lead 21-17, and Garrison again scored for the tie at 23-all before Karly Buer gave the Lady Bears their first lead since 4-3 with a bucket for a 25-23 advantage. The Salukis briefly regained the lead with a triple before Shorter’s layup sparked a 10-0 Missouri State run that saw four different players score over the next 2:43 for a 35-26 advantage. SIU responded with a 7-1 run to close the gap to 36-33 with 1:34 left in the half, and Oliver buried a fifth three-pointer with 1:13 on the clock for a 38-36 score in favor of the Lady Bears. MSU hit two free throw to one for SIU in the final minute for a 40-37 halftime lead. The Lady Bears withstood 7-of-11 three-point shooting by the Salukis in the first half compared to 0-for-4 themselves by forcing 13 turnovers and shooting 18-of-38 overall.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The Missouri State Lady Bears shot 59.4 percent and outscored visiting Illinois State 56-33 after halftime for an 83-68 Missouri Valley Conference victory Sunday afternoon at JQH Arena. The Lady Bears (13-6, 6-3) had 15 assists against two turnovers in the second stanza and overcame a 21-0 first-half ISU (11-9, 6-3) run to move into a tie with the Redbirds and UNI for second in the league standings halfway through the MVC season. Karly Buer scored a career-high 25 points (16 in the second half) on 10-of-12 shooting, Casey Garrison had 14 of her 20 points and eight of her 10 assists in the second period, while Christiana Shorter and Jaleshia Roberson each scored 14 points to put four Lady Bears in double figures for the second straight game. After trailing 35-27 at half, back-to-back Roberson threes with 15:10 left in the game got the Lady Bears within one possession at 42-41 before the Redbirds scored seven points on their next two possessions to steal the momentum back with a 49-43 advantage. Buer accounted for six straight MSU points to get the Lady Bears back to 49-47, and Garrison and Lacey Boshe scored on MSU’s next two possessions to keep the Lady Bears within two points before consecutive ISU turnovers set up three-pointers from Garrison and Buer for a 57-53 Missouri State lead. Boshe then connected on a three-point play for an 11-0 run and 60-53 lead, and after ISU responded with its own three-point play, Roberson fired back with her fourth triple and Buer added a driving bank shot at 8:43 for the Lady Bears’ largest lead of the game at 65-56. Garrison hit two free throws for a 67-56 score, and the Redbirds pulled within eight points and were behind by 10 when Garrison hit a long jumper and Roberson got a steal and layup 15 seconds later for a 75-61 lead and 3:39 on the clock. The Redbirds got no closer than 11 points from there, shooting just 36.7 percent and committing 11 turnovers in the second half. The Lady Bears made five of the their first six shots from the field and held an 11-3 lead just 3:18 in behind seven points from Shorter, but went cold from there as the Redbirds went on a 21-0 run and MSU came up empty on 16 straight trips down the floor. Missouri State’s scoreless drought mounted to 9:25 when Shorter stopped it with a layup for a 24-13 score, and Roberson’s three-pointer at the 4:28 mark cut ISU’s lead to single digits at 29-20. Buer converted a three-point play with 2:07 left for a 2923 score, and MSU made it a six-point game once more before the Redbirds hit a shot at the buzzer for a 35-27 halftime lead. Missouri State made just seven of its final 28 shots to finish 12for-34 for the half compared to 13-of-27 for ISU. The Redbirds also hit four treys in six tries and both teams committed 13 turnovers. MSU finished 31-of-66 (47 percent) from the floor and 8-for-18 from three-point range. ISU shot 42.1 percent overall and 7-for-15 from three. Each team made 13 free throws in 20 tries.

DES MOINES, Iowa — Missouri State overcame an eight-point second-half deficit at Drake Thursday evening to escape the Knapp Center in Des Moines with a 69-66 victory over the Bulldogs in Missouri Valley Conference action. Both teams struggled offensively in the game’s opening minutes as Missouri State held just a 9-8 lead at the second media timeout before Casey Garrison hit a jumper and Christiana Shorter nabbed a steal and layup 18 seconds later for a 13-8 advantage with 11:25 left in the half. Drake’s Rachael Hackbarth, the MVC’s leader in scoring and rebounding, took over from there, scoring 15 straight Drake points while forcing three separate ties of Lady Bear leads of at least four points. From 21-21, MSU scored five straight, capped by Jaleshia Roberson’s three-pointer at the 3:23 mark to lead 26-21, but Drake reeled off an 8-0 run from there to grab its first lead since 3-2 and go into half ahead 31-28. Hackbarth netted 19 points on 7-of-9 shooting in the first period, though the rest of the Bulldogs went 3-for-14. Drake did shoot 13 free throws to MSU’s four to counteract a 10-7 deficit in turnovers. Missouri State got eight points from Karly Buer and shot 39 percent (11-28) from the floor. Two early treys by the Bulldogs in the second half put the home team ahead 37-29 before Lacey Boshe started a Missouri State run by converting a three-point play that included Hackbarth’s third personal foul for a 39-34 score. Boshe scored a fast-break layup on the next possession, Garrison followed with a jumper, and the Lady Bears netted four free throws their next time down the floor, two thanks to an intentional foul committed against Jasmine Malone and two more by Garrison to finish an 11-0 run in just 2:07 of game time. A free throw was Drake’s only point in what ended as a 15-1 run for the Lady Bears with a 46-40 lead and 12:36 to play before Hackbarth’s fourth personal came with MSU leading 46-42 and 11:19 remaining. Missouri State led for the next six minutes until Kyndal Clark nailed a deep three for a 54-54 deadlock and 5:28 remaining. Buer responded with a three-point play just 10 seconds later, Carly Grenfell hit a tying three on Drake’s next possession and Hackbarth hit a pair of free throws with 4:01 left to give the Bulldogs a 59-57 lead. Garrison tied the game at 59 with a mid-range jumper before Shorter took control with a steal and layup for the lead, drew a charge for Hackbarth’s fifth foul, and then scored MSU’s next two baskets for a 65-59 lead and 1:08 left to play. Drake hit a triple with 60 seconds left and then sank two free throws after MSU came up empty to pull within 65-64 with 25.8 seconds to go. Malone calmly sank two free throws and Garrison hit two more around a Drake basket for a 69-66 lead and 10.7 seconds left, and Shorter kept Clark from getting a clean look at a triple as time expired to preserve the win. Shorter and Garrison led MSU with 16 points while Shorter had five steals for the third consecutive game. Buer added 15 for her fifth consecutive game in double figures to go with a career-high eight rebounds.

OMAHA, Neb. — The Missouri State Lady Bears (15-6, 8-3 Missouri Valley Conference) extended their winning streak to five games and stayed within a game of the league lead Saturday afternoon with a 63-55 victory over Creighton (12-10, 6-5) at D.J. Sokol Arena in Omaha. The Lady Bears shot 83 percent (15-18) from the free throw line and held Creighton to 35.5 percent shooting while out-rebounding the Bluejays 43-39, becoming the first visiting team to win twice at CU since its new arena opened in 2009. The teams traded three buckets apiece to a 7-7 tie and Creighton gained its third three-point lead at 12-9 before the Lady Bears ripped off a 14-0 run over four minutes of game time. Karly Buer gave MSU the lead with a jumper, Jaleshia Roberson followed with a deep three-pointer that came after three offensive rebounds for the Lady Bears, and Buer added a three-pointer after baskets by Casey Garrison and Bry Snow to finish off the run with a 23-12 lead and 11:05 on the clock. Creighton answered with a 6-0 run to bring it to 23-18 with 9:08 left, but the Lady Bears quickly had the lead back in double figures after Roberson found Garrison for a fast-break layup that forced CU to use its third timeout with 7:26 left in the half and MSU ahead 31-19. The Lady Bears went cold from there, going without a point for nearly six minutes until Garrison hit a pair of free throws to stop an 8-0 Creighton run and make the score 33-27 with 1:41 to go in the half. Garrison added one more free throw and Missouri State got a steal from Jasmine Malone that led to a Lacey Boshe layup in the final seconds to lead 36-27 at intermission. Missouri State went nearly three minutes before scoring in the second half, but Creighton was able to shave just three points off the lead with a three-point play nine seconds into the period. The Jays missed their next seven field goal attempts and Buer broke the MSU scoreless drought with a jumper at the 17:24 mark before Garrison scored for a 40-30 lead at 15:50. The MSU lead remained between six and 10 points for the next nine minutes until a Buer jumper in the lane gave the Lady Bears a 51-40 advantage with 6:55 to play. The Jays scored the next four points but Boshe answered with four of her own and Buer drained a triple as the shot clock wound down to give the Lady Bears their largest lead of the afternoon at 58-44 with 4:16 remaining. The teams exchanged baskets to 60-46 with 3:32 left and the Lady Bears mustered only a free throw before Jordan Garrison hit a trey for CU for a 61-55 score and 13.6 seconds remaining. MSU was fouled and missed the front end of a one-and-one, then fouled CU on the rebound with 6.4 seconds left, but the Jays returned the favor and Buer knocked down two free throws to seal the win and cap a 20-point afternoon for the sophomore. Buer scored in double figures for the sixth straight game, Garrison added 13 and Boshe scored 11 while going 5-for-5 from the charity stripe. Malone grabbed eight rebounds and Garrison dished out five assists.

A slow start for both teams led to a combined 3-for-22 shooting performance and a 4-4 tie seven minutes in before the Lady Bears got hot from the field. Trailing 9-6 with 12:25 on the clock, Missouri State went on a 13-3 run over the next 3:55 to grab a 19-12 lead. Casey Garrison’s second three-pointer put the Lady Bears ahead by double digits at 24-14 with 7:43 to play, and Evansville cut the lead to five points on three occasions before breaking through with a three-point play for a 32-30 score and 1:37 left in the half. After an MSU free throw, UE scored a layup and turned the Lady Bears over before missing to close the half with a 33-32 score in favor of Missouri State. Four different players scored in an 8-0 MSU run to start the second half for a 41-32 lead. UE closed to five points before Christiana Shorter’s layup at the 13:09 mark put MSU ahead by 10 points again at 50-40, and Karly Buer hit consecutive short jumpers on MSU’s next two possessions for the team’s largest lead yet at 54-42 with 12 minutes to go. Buer made it six straight points and Garrison made two shots around a Jasmine Malone layup to extend the run to 12-2 with a 62-44 lead, and the teams exchanged treys with Garrison canning her third of the night for a 65-47 score and 8:21 remaining. The Lady Bears led by as many as 19 points twice and used all 13 available players, with 10 of those scoring and 11 grabbing at least one rebound. Garrison finished with 20 points on 8-for-10 shooting, including 3-for-4 from beyond the arc, all while relying exclusively on her left hand for the normally right-handed shooter thanks to a thumb sprain. Buer added 15 points, 11 coming in the second half, while Roberson and Malone scored nine each. Garrison also led MSU with eight rebounds and four assists, and the team dished out 19 assists against 14 turnovers while forcing 19 Evansville turnovers. Bry Snow added seven rebounds and Whitney Edie and Malone pulled down five boards each. Shorter had four steals for the fifth time in her last six games. Missouri State shot 47 percent in the second half and 41.4 percent for the game while holding UE to 35.5 percent. The Lady Bears held a 47-38 rebounding margin.

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — Missouri State (19-6, 12-3 Missouri Valley Conference) had five players score at least nine points and held Indiana State (12-15, 6-9) to 27 percent shooting Friday evening to extend its winning streak to nine games with a 68-58 victory over the Sycamores at the Hulman Center in Terre Haute, Ind. The Lady Bears shot 48 percent (24-50) for the game, including 60.9 percent (14-23) in the second half to overcome 20 turnovers and a 40-35 rebounding deficit. The defense smothered ISU to the tune of 23 percent shooting in the second period and 6-for-25 from three-point range in the game. Indiana State’s first three field goals came from beyond the three-point arc and erased Missouri State leads of 3-0 and 9-3 with a tying trey coming at the 15:58 mark. From there, Whitney Edie scored five straight points and Karly Buer, Christiana Shorter and Jaleshia Roberson followed with baskets for an 11-0 run and 20-9 lead with 12:36 left in the half. The Lady Bears went through a four-minute scoreless drought from there, but the Sycamores shaved just four points off MSU’s lead, and Hannah Wilkerson’s layup between two Edie free throws had the advantage back at 11 points at 24-13. Two free throws from Roberson followed for a 6-0 run and MSU’s largest lead yet at 26-13 with 6:36 on the clock. A Roberson three-pointer served as Missouri State’s only points during a 9-3 ISU run that made the score 29-22, and a three-point play from Shannon Thomas followed by another free throw made it a 31-26 game with 3:16 to go in the first half. Thomas led ISU with 18 points and 13 rebounds. Buer hit a short jumper to answer and score MSU’s only points in the final four minutes of the period, but it was good enough for a 33-26 halftime lead as the Lady Bears forced 15 ISU turnovers and shot 10-of-12 at the foul line. Indiana State cut the lead to four out of the intermission and the Lady Bears continued to struggle offensively until Edie scored a layup with 18:10 to play and Jasmine Malone and Roberson added five points for a 7-0 run and 40-29 advantage with 15:59 to play. The Sycamores scored for 40-31 and then went cold from the floor themselves, going nearly five minutes without scoring while the Lady Bears went on a 7-0 run to lead 47-31 before two ISU free throws at the 11:04 mark. The lead hovered between 13 and 17 points over the next four minutes until a Malone layup with 7:10 left gave the Lady Bears a 59-40 advantage. Shorter’s layup on the next possession pushed the lead to 61-41, and it got up to 21 at 67-46 on Lacey Boshe’s jumper with 4:57 left before the Sycamores staged a late run. Indiana State scored the game’s next seven points in just 74 seconds to close to 67-53, and ultimately closed on a 12-1 run for the final 10-point margin. Buer led the team with 13 points, Roberson had 12 and Malone chipped in 11 as 10 players recorded double-figure minutes. Edie and Malone shared high rebounding honors with five each, and Buer had five assists. MSU held a 41-5 advantage in bench scoring.

NORMAL, Ill. — The Missouri State Lady Bears clinched at least a share of their first Missouri Valley Conference regular-season championship since 2005 Sunday with an 80-76 overtime victory over second-place Illinois State at Redbird Arena in Normal, Ill. The Lady Bears (20-6, 13-3 MVC) snapped Illinois State’s (1611, 11-5) 24-game home win streak against league opponents while winning their 10th consecutive game overall. MSU sits two games ahead of the Redbirds and Wichita State with two games to play thanks to Indiana State’s upset of WSU Sunday afternoon. Overtime was befitting of a game that featured 14 ties and 12 lead changes in the second half alone as the contest was knotted 69-69 after a wild regulation finish. Casey Garrison hit a go-ahead three-pointer with 2:31 left and Karly Buer hit two free throws 44 seconds later for a 69-66 lead before ISU’s Chloe Nelson canned a tying trey with 25 seconds left. MSU came up empty on its last second try, then stole the Illinois State inbounds pass and Jaleshia Roberson’s 70-foot heave at the buzzer hit the front of the rim. Garrison was then the hero of the overtime period with the first seven of MSU’s 11 points. She made shots for leads of 72-71 and 73-72 before ISU’s Katie Broadway drained a triple for a 75-73 score and 2:10 left. The Redbirds then missed three free throws after an initial make before Garrison hit a three for a 76-76 tie and 47 seconds to go. The Lady Bears followed with two defensive stops, each time getting fouled with Roberson and Jasmine Malone sinking two free throws each to secure the four-point win. Malone’s foul shots came with 3.7 seconds left and made for the largest lead either team enjoyed after halftime. Garrison finished with 19 points, Roberson had 16 and Shorter added 13 as six players scored at least seven points for MSU. Missouri State held a 54-38 rebounding margin and grabbed 20 offensive boards. Malone had nine to go with nine points, Whitney Edie had a season-high eight and Shorter and Karly Buer got seven apiece. Malone added a team-high five assists as well. Illinois State shot 41.8 percent compared to 37.3 for the Lady Bears, though ISU made just 8-of-26 (30.8 percent) from threepoint range after entering the game ranked third nationally at 39 percent. Missouri State held a 22-12 margin at the free throw line.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The Missouri State Lady Bears defeated Northern Iowa 80-68 Thursday evening at JQH Arena to claim the ninth Missouri Valley Conference regular-season championship in program history. Already assured of at least a share of the championship entering the contest, the Lady Bears (21-6, 14-3 MVC) had four players score in double figures off the bench and held UNI (16-12, 9-8) to 32.8 percent shooting to win the title outright with their 11th consecutive victory. Seniors Jaleshia Roberson (22), Jasmine Malone (17) and Lacey Boshe (11) joined junior Whitney Edie (12) in double figures as MSU made 28 of 64 shots overall (43.8 percent) and held a 45-41 rebounding edge. The Lady Bears had 18 assists against 13 turnovers against one of the MVC’s premiere defenses. Roberson went 6-for-10 from beyond the three-point arc and grabbed seven rebounds, Malone added 11 rebounds, five steals and three assists for her third career double-double, and Edie shot 6-for-10 for a season-high 12 points as the MSU bench outscored UNI’s 62-9. Senior Casey Garrison added nine points with five assists, no turnovers and a career-high four blocks. The Lady Bears overcame a fast start by UNI to take a 46-40 lead into halftime. The Panthers led 14-8 less than four minutes into the game before Roberson unleashed four three-pointers to spark the MSU offense. He first two made for a 14-14 tie, and she was fouled on her fourth to start a four-point play and 10-1 run that put the Lady Bears up 37-25 with 5:24 to go in the period before UNI closed within five points at 39-34. Edie began the second period with a basket 10 seconds in, but the Lady Bears went without a point for the next 3:15 until Malone hit two free throws for a 50-44 lead. UNI scored to get back within four points and Malone scored consecutive buckets for a 54-46 lead with 14:48 to play. Roberson drained another trey for a 58-48 lead with 13:05 to play, but the Panthers reeled off a 7-0 run over the next four minutes until Boshe converted a three-point play for a 61-55 lead. Malone added another 30 seconds later, and Boshe scored again on the next possession to get the lead back in double figures at 66-55 with 8:01 to play. A Malone steal led to an Edie bucket after that, Roberson scored a layup and in just over two minutes the Lady Bears had ripped off a 12-0 run to lead 70-55 with 7:10 remaining. The Panthers continued to have an answer to each Missouri State run, this time draining three consecutive three-pointers to get back to 70-64 with 5:15 still on the clock. The Lady Bears weathered that storm, getting a Christiana Shorter free throw, two scores from Edie and a Boshe jumper to pull back ahead 77-64 with 2:24 to play. Roberson’s sixth triple finished off the MSU scoring with 1:44 left.

ST. CHARLES, Mo. — The Missouri State Lady Bears (22-8) finished with season lows in points (47), shooting percentage (.299) and three-pointers (0) as Creighton’s (19-12) defense stifled MSU after a quick start in a 56-47 loss in the semifinals of the State Farm MVC Tournament Saturday afternoon at The Family Arena in St. Charles, Mo. The first half was characterized by long dry spells for each team that resulted in a combined 18-for-57 overall shooting performance and 2-for-20 from beyond the three-point arc. Missouri State held Creighton scoreless until the 16:25 mark and led 12-2 eight minutes in. The Lady Bears extended the lead to 12 at 16-4 with 10:35 to play before the Bluejays erased all of the lead with a 12-0 run to tie at 16-16 with 7:18 left. The Lady Bears then scored just one basket themselves for nearly eight minutes as the Jays grabbed a 20-18 lead, and Casey Garrison tied the game with a jumper before Jaleshia Roberson converted a three-point play with 2:09 left to end the scoring at 23-20 at intermission as CU closed with one bucket in the final six minutes. Missouri State maintained its three-point lead in the early minutes of the second half before Creighton kept the Lady Bears off the scoreboard for nearly five minutes while using a 7-0 run to lead 32-28 with 12:17 to play. Roberson was fouled on a three-pointer and made all three free throws for a 32-31 deficit with 11:55 to play, but the Bluejays again had the answer with a 7-0 run lead 38-31. Garrison’s basket at the 9:04 mark served as MSU’s first field since 16:31 and made it 3833. Creighton went back up by seven at 40-33, and Garrison brought the Lady Bears to 41-39 at the 3:08 mark and 44-41 with 2:21 left, but Carli Tritz answered with three-pointers each time, the second on a fallaway at the shot clock buzzer that included a foul and made free throw for a 48-41 score and 1:47 to play. Tritz’s four-point play proved to be the dagger as the Lady Bears remained cold from beyond the arc in their last-ditch comeback bid to finish the game 0-for-14. Garrison led MSU with 18 points as the only player in double figures. Christiana Shorter grabbed nine rebounds as MSU held a 43-40 edge on the boards. Tritz scored 29 for the Bluejays, who shot 36.7 percent for the game.

ST. CHARLES, Mo. — Missouri State’s Karly Buer hit four free throws in the game’s final 61 seconds to break a 54-54 tie and hand the top-seeded Lady Bears (22-7) a 58-54 victory over No. 8 seed Bradley (17-15) in the quarterfinals of the State Farm MVC Tournament Friday afternoon at The Family Arena in St. Charles, Mo. Missouri State trailed for most the of the game in what was nearly a statistical deadlock. Each club shot 18-of-54 from the field, each made just a trio of three-pointers with MSU attempting one more, and the Lady Bears committed 21 turnovers to Bradley’s 20. Missouri State shot 19-of-27 at the free throw line to 15-of-21 for BU, accounting for the four-point difference in the final score. The Lady Bears trailed 26-24 at half thanks in part to a five-plus minute scoreless drought as the teams combined for 24 turnovers and 31 percent shooting. Out of the break, Missouri State tied the game three times and took a 32-30 lead with 16:47 to play, but it turned out to be MSU’s last until Buer’s free throws in the waning seconds. MSU again found itself in a long scoring drought as the Braves went on a 9-0 run before Whitney Edie stopped it with a free throw at the 10:59 mark of a 39-33 score. The Bradley lead stayed at six or better until Jasmine Malone swished a three-pointer from the right wing to pull MSU to 45-42 with 7:27 to play, and Casey Garrison added two free throws on the next possession for a 7-0 run. Buer followed with a short jumper with 6:37 to play made it a new game at 46-46. The Braves regained the lead three times after MSU ties, including a three-pointer with 3:45 left for a 53-50 score, before Lacey Boshe hit a driving layup with 1:41 left for another tie, this time at 54-54. Buer hit her first pair of free throws with 1:01 on the clock, the Lady Bears forced a Bradley turnover, and Buer added two more charity tosses with 13.4 seconds remaining before BU missed its final shot attempt and the buzzer sounded. Buer led the Lady Bears with 17 points, and Garrison added 15 with a 9-for-10 showing at the foul line. She added five assists, and Christiana Shorter’s nine rebounds helped MSU top the Braves 4135 in that category.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Missouri State’s winning streak of 11 games overall and 12 wins at JQH Arena ended Saturday evening with a 86-69 setback at the hands of visiting Bradley in the regular-season finale for both teams. The Lady Bears fell to 21-7 overall and 14-4 in Missouri Valley Conference play. Bradley never trailed in the game, beginning 4-for-5 from the field for a 9-2 lead, and led by at least eight points, aside from one possession late in the first half, for the duration of the game after reaching that point at 22-14 with 12:30 remaining in the first stanza. A 10-1 run early in the second half gave the Braves a 57-40 lead with 13:05 to play, and consecutive three-point plays from Casey Garrison and Christiana Shorter made it an 11-point game less than a minute later. The Lady Bears fought back to a single-digit deficit four separate times over the next several minutes, but each time the Braves responded, recovering all of their 17-point lead at 80-63 with 3:45 left to play. Bradley’s totals of 86 points and 52.2 percent shooting represented season-highs for a Lady Bear opponent, while MSU’s 33.3 percent shooting threatened its season-low of 30.3. BU held a 44-42 rebounding advantage and converted 17 offensive rebounds into 20 points. Karly Buer led MSU with 15 points, Shorter added 13 on 6-of-9 shooting, and Whitney Edie posted season-highs of 13 points and nine rebounds. Lacey Boshe scored 11 points and Garrison had seven assists on Senior Night.

MSU moves on to play Memphis (25-7) on Saturday (March 17) at 7 p.m. at JQH. The Tigers defeated Chattanooga 60-59 on Thursday. UMKC’s 11-2 run early in the second half put the Kangaroos ahead 51-42 with 14:51 to play and forced the Lady Bears to play comeback until Jaleshia Roberson canned a three-pointer for a 6261 lead with 6:25 remaining. It was a new game at 64-64 with 5:46 to go, and Roberson gave the Lady Bears two-point leads with free throws and then a trey for a 69-67 advantage with 4:52 left. The ‘Roos converted a threepoint play to go ahead 74-71 with 3:35 left, and Edie countered with three free throws over the next two possessions for a 74-74 deadlock and 2:40 to play.

The Kangaroos hit a bucket as time expired for the final margin. The Lady Bears shot a blistering 62.1 percent in the first half but still trailed 40-38 at the break thanks to 12 turnovers. MSU made its first three shots but only led 6-5 when the Kangaroos rolled off a 10-2 run to lead 15-8 at the 15:13 mark. Edie hit two layups to begin an 8-0 run in response, and UMKC regained momentum to go ahead 26-22. Another 8-0 Lady Bear run made for a 30-26 lead with 5:21 left, UMKC answered with a 5-0 run to regain the advantage, and the lead switched four more times with two ties heading into half as UMKC scored just before the buzzer to gain the upper hand. The Lady Bears made 30 of 54 shots from the floor for a season-high .556 shooting percentage. Buer led MSU in points (22), rebounds (7) and assists (7) while playing all 40 minutes.

UMKC shot 43.1 percent and nabbed 10 steals while forcing 19 MSU turnovers. The game featured 10 ties and 20 lead changes. The Lady Bears played without senior Casey Garrison, whose streak of 128 consecutive starts, the third-longest nationally, came to an end due to illness. Boshe, meanwhile, played in her 129th career game, tying Jackie Stiles for the MSU record.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The Missouri State Lady Bears (24-8) shot 10-for-20 from three-point land for their highest total since Dec. 20 in an 82-65 win over Memphis (25-8) Saturday evening in the second round of the Women’s National Invitation Tournament at JQH Arena. The Lady Bears closed the first half on a 7-0 run to lead 32-25 after six ties and four lead changes. Missouri State led 7-1 just over three minutes in thanks to an 0-for-6 start for Memphis, and kept the six-point lead to 12-6 with 11:48 remaining before the Tigers fought back for a 14-all tie less than two minutes later. Memphis gained its largest advantage of the period at 19-17 before committing a flagrant foul that resulted in two Jasmine Malone free throws followed by a Jaleshia Roberson three-pointer at the 5:54 mark for a 22-19 MSU advantage. The Tigers tied at 22, 24 and 25, but didn’t score in the final 3:11 while the Lady Bears ran 7-0, the last five points coming from Malone. The second half was a completely different story for the Lady Bears as they shot 53.1 percent overall and 58.3 percent from three-point land while pushing the lead up to 25 points. As the half began, Bry Snow and Karly Buer scored for MSU to extend the run to 11-0 as the Memphis scoreless drought reached 5 minutes and 43 seconds before the Tigers made a jumper at the 17:28 mark to make it 36-27. Buer drained a three-pointer off an offensive rebound to put the Lady Bears up 12 at 41-29 with 15:52 to play, and Malone followed with another with 15:07 left to extend the lead to 44-29. Buer then banked in a jumper and Roberson converted a three-point play as the Lady Bears completed an 11-0 run in just 2:27 of game time to lead 49-29. Memphis cut the MSU lead to 15 points on two occasions before the Lady Bears swished three-pointers on four straight possessions with Roberson, Buer, Malone and Memphis native Desiree Phillips hitting from long range in exchange for Tiger two-pointers to make the score 67-44 with 7:51 to play. Aly Stock followed with a jumper for a 25-point lead, and the Tigers got no closer than 15 the rest of the way. Twelve players scored and 11 grabbed a rebound for the Lady Bears, led by Malone’s 20 points on 5-for-10 shooting. Buer added 16 and Roberson scored 14, while Christiana Shorter had eight points and eight rebounds. The Lady Bears shot 45.3 percent for the game and held a 4942 rebounding edge. Memphis made just 37.3 percent of its shots from the field, including 3-for-17 on threes and 12-for-30 at the free throw line. Conference USA Player of the Year Jasmine Lee had 16 points and 13 rebounds for Memphis, while Nicole Dickson threatened a triple-double with 29 points, nine rebounds and eight steals.

STILLWATER, Okla. — Oklahoma State used a 15-0 second-half and a stiff defense to defeat the Missouri State Lady Bears by a 7057 tally Thursday evening in a third-round Women’s National Invitation Tournament game at Gallagher-Iba Arena in Stillwater, Okla. The Cowgirls, who entered the game 16th nationally with a .349 field goal percentage defense, held the Lady Bears to 19-of-63 from the field for 30.2 percent shooting. The Lady Bears end their season at 24-9, while OSU improves to 19-12 as it advanced to the quarterfinal round. The Lady Bears forced Oklahoma State into two turnovers and two missed shots in the early going to build a 7-0 lead on Jasmine Malone’s three-pointer at the 17:49 mark. The Cowgirls quickly responded with an 8-0 run to take the lead as MSU went exactly five minutes without a point until Whitney Edie’s free throws tied the game at 8-8. The Cowgirls continued to hold Missouri State in check for the next 10 minutes, building their lead to as many as 10 at 27-17 with 5:44 to go until the Lady Bears made a late push to go into half down 31-29. Edie scored five straight points and Jaleshia Roberson followed with a trey to make it 27-25 with 3:50 left, and then added two free throws with 54 seconds to go for a 29-all tie before the Cowgirls hit a two-pointer at the halftime buzzer. The Cowgirls built the lead back to six to begin the second half until Edie broke the drought with a basket for a 35-31 score at the 17:01 mark. Oklahoma State answered that with a 7-0 run for its largest lead yet at 42-31 with 15:40 to play before Karly Buer stopped it with a three-pointer. Roberson added another trey on the next possession to make it 42-37 with nearly 15 minutes still on the clock, but Big 12 Freshman of the Year Liz Donohoe followed with her fourth triple of the game and added five more points for a personal 8-0 run, and the Cowgirls added seven more points to that before it was all said and done to complete a 15-0 spurt with a 57-37 lead and 11:05 left to play. The Lady Bears were not able to get closer than 12 points the rest of they way and subbed out the five-player senior class en masse with 1:08 on the clock.
