The majority of Missouri State’s experience resides in the backcourt, with plenty of depth that Harper believes will allow the Lady Bears to play at a high level for extended periods throughout the season. With three seniors and two experienced sophomores on the roster, Missouri State seems well equipped to play the up tempo style that Harper calls “a fun brand of basketball.” Leading the cast of senior guards is Karly Buer (Concordia, Kan.), a tireless worker who has appeared in all 99 MSU games since arriving on campus. Buer’s leadership by example continues to serve as a behind-the-scenes spark for the Lady Bears, and her extra hours in the gym paid off to the tune of a school-record .907 free throw percentage last season. Buer is also on pace to become the 24th 1,000-point scorer at Missouri State, thanks in large part to a consistent midrange jump shot and improving 3-point game. Hannah Wilkerson (Miller, Mo.) has shown glimpses the last three seasons of the scoring prowess that netted her Mis-

The Backcourt

souri’s career high school scoring record, and possesses good loor vision for both scoring and passing. Like many seniors, Wilkerson’s role has increased each year, culminating in 22 starting assignments during a junior season in which she averaged 6.9 points per game and dished out 71 assists. Like Buer, Wilkerson is also strong from the charity stripe, making better than 87 percent of her free throws in the inal 26 games of her junior year and 79.8 percent for her career. The theme of work ethic continues with MSU’s third senior guard, Desiree Phillips (Memphis, Tenn.). A sharp-shooter who made 34 percent of her 3-point tries as a junior, Phillips has cracked the starting lineup 15 times as a Lady Bear, with MSU winning 13 of those contests. Phillips’s minutes played have increased dramatically each season and the senior is prepared to be one of MSU’s primary long-range threats this year. Kenzie Williams (Mt. Vernon, Mo.) returned from a knee injury that prematurely ended her true freshman season to post one of the top rookie seasons in Missouri State history in 2012-13. A multi-talented guard with good size, Williams ranked second on the Lady

new era in Lady Bear basketball began April 10, 2013, when Missouri State introduced Kellie Harper as its seventh head women’s basketball coach, and the excitement level for the 2013-14 season has been high ever since. “I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about being here with you today,” Harper said to open her introductory press conference. “There are few women’s basketball programs that are supported as much as this program is.” That support was evident in the following weeks as season ticket sales doubled from the previous year, an amazing fact considering the Lady Bears annually lead the Missouri Valley Conference in attendance and are just two seasons removed from a conference championship. As for what those supporters can expect from Harper’s irst team, the coach characterizes her approach as wanting to be “relentlessly aggressive on both ends of the court,” while adding, “We want to be a gritty, tough, hard-nosed basketball team with fundamentally sound players that have a high basketball IQ that love playing the game.” Those ingredients look to be in place this year with nine returning players and

Kari Koch among freshmen. Snow’s relentless on-ball defense makes her a stopper every game, while her athleticism and aggressiveness make her a consistent offensive threat as well, evidenced by 10 double- igure scoring efforts last season and school single-game records for free throw makes (18) and attempts (26) against Southern Illinois. Joining the veteran guards are freshmen Lexi Hughes (Kansas City, Kan.) and Katie Palmer (Wichita, Kan.). A four-time all-conference performer at Bishop Miege High School in Kansas City, Hughes is poised with the ball in her hands and a good shooter with the skills to excel as a point guard or shooting guard. Palmer, meanwhile, was a two-time allstate performer in Kansas and a member of two unbeaten championship teams

Bears with an 11.3 point scoring average while leading the team in minutes (1,048) assists (88) and 3-point makes (43). Her 351 points last season ranked ninth all-time among MSU freshman, while the 88 assists ranked sixth and her 58 steals rated eighth. Another hard worker and leader by example, Williams will continue to be one of Missouri State’s top players on both ends of the loor for three more seasons. Fellow sophomore Tyonna Snow (Blue Springs, Mo.) left her mark on the program from the opening tip last season, swiping eight steals and scoring 19 points in her irst career game. An MVC all-freshman selection, Snow’s 264 total points ranked 14th among MSU rookies all-time, and her 71 steals led the team and trail only MSU Hall of Famer

at Heights High in Wichita. A quick and athletic scorer, she can put the ball in the basket anywhere from the drive to the 3-point arc.

The Frontcourt While the Lady Bears lost three post players to graduation, six remain on the roster ready to seize the opporunity for increased playing time this year. Senior Bry Snow (Blue Springs, Mo.) is the most experienced of the group. Like younger sister Tyonna, Snow is a great athlete with strong rebounding skills and a good shooting touch to go with her 6-foot1 frame. Snow logged the third-most minutes of MSU’s post players as a junior, averaging 15.4 per game. She scored 5.0 points and grabbed 2.8 rebounds while shooting 44.9 percent from the ield. Over the season’s inal ive contests, Snow twice scored in double igures while playing at least 20 minutes and hauling in at least six rebounds in each contest to foreshadow her role this season. NiJay Gaines (Des Moines, Iowa) came to Missouri State as a guard but embraced the switch to forward as a sophomore and earned her way on to the loor as the year progressed. By season’s end, Gaines had appeared in 28 games with ive starting assignments, making great strides in all aspects of her game and setting herself up for a break-out junior season. Sophomores Mikala McGhee (Bridgeton, Mo.) and Hillary Chvatal (Atwood, Kan.) also look to increase their minutes this season. McGhee’s athletic versatility and high effort level have helped her expand her game to play both inside and outside, and those traits should translate into more contributions for her this season. Chvatal’s size and strength give her the ability to be a dominant rebounder, as evidenced by her average of 11.1 boards per 40 minutes as a true freshman. Chvatal led the state of Kansas in rebounding twice as a prep, and will be counted on to ill the void left by the graduation of MSU’s top two rebounders from the 2012-13 club. Freshmen Onye Osemenam (Brooklyn Park, Minn.) and Rachel Swartz (Stanwood, Wash.) round out Missouri State’s group of post players. Osemenam was a proli ic shot-blocker in high school who also averaged a doubledouble for her prep career. She is a strong rebounder and savvy defender who always seems to be in the right spot on the loor. Swartz’s work ethic and skills as a quick learner should help her contribute as the season goes on. A feisty rebounder accord-


ing to Coach Harper, Swartz set her high school’s record with 20 boards in a game as a senior.

MISSOURI STATE

The Missouri Valley Conference race appears to be wide open this season, with only one team that inished in the top half of the 2013 standings returning more than three starters, and just six of the 16 all-MVC performers from last year coming back. Preseason favorite Indiana State brings back four starters from last year’s 18-13 team that inished fourth in the MVC. Senior Anna Munn is the league’s active leader by a wide margin with 165 career 3-point makes, and junior forward Rachel Mahan joined Munn with MVC postseason honors last year after scoring 13.0 points per game with 7.9 rebounds per contest. Defending champion Wichita State lost four starters from its 24-10 team, but

The Lady Bears will once again face a challenging schedule in 2013-14 built to prepare the team for MVC play. Missouri State will play a total of 16 games against 12 teams that participated in a postseason tournament in 2012-13. The non-conference schedule itself features eight games against 2013 postseason clubs, with the 11 teams on that portion schedule combining for a 217-136 (.615) record a season ago. The MVC sent ive teams to the postseason in 2013, including two NCAA Tournament bids, meaning the Lady Bears will have eight league games against postseason clubs after Creighton’s departure from the league. The Lady Bears open league play Jan. 5 at Wichita State and play nine of the irst 15 games at JQH Arena. In conference play, Missouri State has four home dates in January and ive in February before closing the regular season at Wichita State on March 9. The home opener takes place Nov. 13 at JQH Arena against Arkansas-Little Rock, with additional non-conference home games against Quinnipiac (Nov. 26), Lamar (Dec. 15), Missouri (Dec. 19) and Southeast Missouri State (Dec. 21). The remainder of the pre-MVC road schedule includes visits to IUPUI (Nov. 17), Arkansas (Nov. 22), 2013 NCAA runnerup Louisville (Dec. 3), Eastern Kentucky (Dec. 5) and North Texas (Dec. 29). The Missouri Valley Conference Women’s Basketball Championship will once again be held at The Family Arena in St. Charles, Mo. from March 13-16, 2013.

returns preseason MVC Player of the Year Alex Harden. The Shockers bring back just four letterwinners, but will still be dangerous after qualifying for postseason play in four consecutive seasons. UNI has been a consistent top-half team for several seasons, but will have to overcome the loss of two-time MVC Player of the Year Jacqui Kalin. The Panthers tied Indiana State for fourth in the league standings last season, but do not return a player who scored more than 7.3 points per game last year. Drake brings back the bulk of its roster from last year’s 11-20 club. The Bulldogs will be led again by junior guard Kyndal Clark, who scored 14.6 points per game a season ago and buried 57 3-pointers in addition to piling up 111 assists and 77 steals. Morgan Reid (11.3 points, 8.2 rebounds) gives Drake a solid presence in the post as well. Loyola University Chicago, led by women’s basketball legend and irst-year head coach Sheryl Swoopes, joins the MVC this season after going 17-15 overall last year and inishing third in the Horizon League. The Ramblers return four starters, including Simone Law (17.8 points, 8.7 rebounds) and Taylor Johnson (14.3 points, 6.0 boards). Bradley posted a strong inish to the 2012-13 campaign to earn a sixth-place inish in the MVC standings, but the unexpected departure of guard Shronda Butts leaves the Braves with two returning starters this year. Nevertheless, Bradley returns four players that scored at least 6.4 points per game last year, including senior guards Kelsey Budd and Catie O’Leary. Illinois State may have suffered the most loss of any roster with three all-MVC performers not returning for the 2013-14 campaign. The Redbirds also experienced a shake-up in the coaching staff, with Barb Smith taking over for a club that inished 24-11 overall and 13-5 in the MVC last season. Evansville was the surprise team of MVC’s irst several weeks last year, jumping out to a 5-1 start in conference play before losing guard Khristian Hart to a knee injury. Hart and forward Mallory Ladd provide the Aces with a skilled 1-2 punch, though the team returns only four players who appeared in at least 15 games last year. Southern Illinois returns all 10 letterwinners and will be once again led by junior guard Cartaesha Macklin, the MVC’s active career scoring leader with 958 points in her irst two seasons. The Salukis also have a new sideline boss this year, with Cindy Stein taking over a club that won just ive games in 2012-13.

TRADITION Going to the Big Dance Since moving to NCAA Division I in 1982-83, MSU teams have made 52 NCAA championship appearances. In addition, numerous individuals have represented the University at NCAA championship events. MSU Division I team appearances: Women’s Basketball (13) 1991 ▪ 1992 (Final Four) 1993 (Sweet 16) ▪ 1994 1995 ▪ 1996 ▪ 1998 ▪ 1999 2000 ▪ 2001 (Final Four) 2003 ▪ 2004 ▪ 2006 Volleyball (10) 1982 ▪ 1990 ▪ 1993 ▪ 2003 2005 ▪ 2006 ▪ 2007 ▪ 2008 2010 ▪ 2011 Baseball (8) 1987 ▪ 1995 ▪ 1996 ▪ 1997 1999 ▪ 2002 ▪ 2003 (CWS) ▪ 2012

The Missouri State Lady Bears have been one of the nation’s most-successful women’s basketball programs over the last two decades, racking up 21 Missouri Valley Conference titles, seventeen 20+ win seasons, and 13 NCAA Tournament berths, including three Sweet 16 appearances and trips to the Final Four in 1992 (above) and 2001.

ith a $30 million gift from Missouri State alumnus and Springield, 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, of ices 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 Spring ield.

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 loor that was in use in HSC’s main arena from 1985 until February of 2006.

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.

This program has great tradition, fantastic facilities and a solid fan base,” said Harper. “It’s a fresh start for Lady Bears Basketball. The future is very bright, and we’re going to have high expectations to do something really special here.” “We are very excited for Kellie to join the Missouri State family” said Director of Athletics Kyle Moats. “She was a tremendous college basketball player, she comes from a great basketball pedigree, and she is widely regarded as a great tactician.

year. Prior to her time in Chattanooga, Harper spent two seasons at Auburn, the irst as an administrative assistant before being promoted to assistant coach under Joe Ciampi for the 2000-01 campaign. She was part of the Auburn staff that squared off with the Lady Bears in the irst round of the 2000 NCAA Tournament in State College, Pa. The former Kellie Jolly played on three national championship clubs at Tennessee for the legendary Pat Summitt and earned honorable mention all-America honors as a senior in 1999. As a junior, she guided the Lady Vols to a 39-0 record and national championship, averaging 7.6 points and 3.8 assists for the season and scoring a career-high 20 points in the national title game against Louisiana Tech. She went 4-of-5 from beyond the arc in that contest and was named to the 1998 All-Final Four Team. “As a player at the University of Tennessee, Kellie showed great leadership, poise and dedication,” said Summitt. “She knows the game of basketball. She is an excellent teacher, and her passion for the game is infectious. She will bring all this to Missouri State. I wish Kellie and the staff she assembles all the very best as they take responsibility for the Missouri State Lady Bears basketball program.” Harper set an NCAA championship game record with 11 assists and dished out 20 helpers in two games for All-Final Four honors in 1997 after returning from injury midway through her sophomore season. That year, the National Strength and Conditioning Association named her its Strength and Conditioning Female Student-Athlete of the Year. For her Tennessee career, Harper scored 894 points and had 450 assists, leaving UT on the school’s career top 10 lists for assists, assist average, 3-point attempts and 3-point percentage. She was drafted by the Cleveland Rockers in the fourth round of the 1999 WNBA draft and earned her degree in mathematics that same year. She was a three-time Academic All-SEC recipient as well. She played for her father at White County High School in Sparta, Tenn., and was a ive-time AllAmerican during her AAU playing career. She was inducted into the Lady Vols Hall of Fame in 2009 and White County High Hall of Fame in 2012. “I am very excited Kellie Harper has joined the Lady Bears family,” said Missouri State President Clifton M. Smart III. “She has shown she is an outstanding coach and recruiter who also wants to be deeply involved in our community. I am expecting great things from this program in the years ahead as we work to reclaim our rightful position in the Missouri Valley Conference.” “My irst priorities are the team, the staff and our recruits,” said Harper. “We’ll get started on those things right away. I met our players this morning, and we’ll get the chance to work out tomorrow for the irst time. I’ll start contacting our signees today and then start working toward getting our coaching staff in place.” Harper, 36, is married to Jon Harper, who has served on her coaching staff at Western Carolina, NC State, and now at Missouri State.

The Lady Bears began the season with a 74-71 home loss to 22nd-ranked Oklahoma State - a team that had handed MSU a pair of double-digit defeats the season before - in a competitive game that prompted coaches from both sides to speak highly of the Lady Bears and their prospects for another successful campaign.

Promising Start

MSU continued to play well against tough competition the next two times out, beating an eventual 24-win Arkansas-Little Rock club on its home loor Nov. 15 by a 78-68 inal thanks to 20 points from Kenzie Williams and a career-high 15 from Bry Snow, and going toe-to-toe with Gonzaga for 36 minutes in an 80-66 loss in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, on Nov. 20. The Lady Bears inished up their Mexico trip with victories over Central Florida and UC Santa Barbara over the next two days, and returned home to extend their winning streak to four games with wins over Oral Roberts and Northern Kentucky at JQH Arena. MSU dispatched ORU with a 73-72 overtime win Nov. 29, with Christiana Shorter’s 10-for-11 shooting effort helping MSU overcome Kevi Luper’s 40-point performance.

Finishing a Winning Non-Conference Missouri State lost to a pair of BCS schools in the remainder of its non-conference schedule but picked up three more wins to enter league play at 8-4. On Dec. 6, Missouri pulled away from a 51-49 halftime lead to beat MSU 9177, and the Lady Bears returned to the court after inals week for an 83-60 win over Arkansas State. MSU shot 9-for-17 from 3-point land in that game against an ASU team that inished the year fourth nationally in 3-point defense. A disappointing showing at Iowa on Dec. 19 ended with a 97-43 loss, but the Lady Bears showed resilience by bouncing back to defeat SEMO two days later, using Shorter’s 15 points and 14 boards to corral a 69-55 win. Edie posted another big game in the non-conference inale Dec. 30 with 26 points and nine boards to lead the Lady Bears to an 88-75 victory over Coppin State. Missouri State had the unenviable task of playing three road games to start the MVC season, beginning with eventual league co-champion Wichita State. The Shockers won the opener 76-64 on Jan. 3 and Missouri State had a week off before its next game at UNI, a 75-52 loss to the Panthers. The Lady Bears were stunned by Bradley’s last-second 3-pointer two days later in an 80-79 loss to the Braves, but came home Jan. 19 to earn their irst league win by a similar 80-77 margin over Drake. Bry Snow hit a pair of goahead baskets in that game’s inal 46.3 seconds to help push MSU past the Bulldogs. Creighton, which joined Wichita State atop the league standings at season’s end, dropped MSU to 1-4 in conference

The next game saw Missouri State set a Missouri Valley Conference record with 68 total rebounds, including 35 on the offensive glass, to beat UNK 70-67 on Dec. 1. Whitney Edie inished with 22 points and 16 rebounds on the way to an MVC Player of the Week award as the Lady Bears improved to 5-2 at the season’s quarter pole.

he 2012-13 Lady Bears began the season with high hopes of defending their 2012 Missouri Valley Conference title, and looked very much the part early on. Missouri State made it to Dec. 1 with a 5-2 record against a solid schedule, and even inished non-conference play at 8-4, but lost 15 of their inal 24 games overall to end the year with a 14-17 record and eighth-place MVC inish at 6-12.

Williams and Snow made their marks on several freshman lists. Williams scored 351 points to rank ninth, and Snow tallied 264 to rank 14th.

The Lady Bears used 25 points and ive 3-pointers from Karly Buer to win at Southern Illinois on Jan. 27, out-lasting the Salukis 79-72 before returning home for the next four games. Missouri State began the homestand with a 71-67 loss to Indiana State, losing the rebounding battle for one of the few times on the season, but responded Feb. 3 with a big 91-76 victory over Illinois State. Edie’s 20 points and 13 rebounds led the way as the Lady Bears placed ive players in double igures in the scoring column against the Redbirds. Williams buried six 3-pointers and scored a career-high 23 points Feb. 8 as the Lady Bears topped Bradley 91-86, and MSU came just short of extending its winning streak to three games Feb. 10 against UNI despite shooting 35for-47 from the foul line and getting 18 points and 10 rebounds from Tyonna Snow. Missouri State lost both games of its road trip to Creighton and Drake the following weekend, losing 67-51 to CU and 75-64 to DU, before returning home Feb. 21 and 23 to defeat Southern Illinois and Evansville. The Lady Bears topped SIU 81-74 thanks in part to Tyonna Snow’s school records for free throw makes (18) and attempts (26) in a game. A 66-63 victory over Evansville followed as Williams poured in 17 points, but it would be the last win of the season as the Lady Bears closed with four straight losses. MSU’s return trip to Indiana State on March 1 resulted in a 71-63 defeat, and Illinois State topped the Lady Bears 8160 on March 3. The Lady Bears pushed Wichita State to the limit on Senior Night before falling 74-69 to the Shockers to inish eighth in the league with a 6-12 record. That set up a Thursday contest with ninth-seeded Drake on the MVC Tournament. Missouri State led the Bulldogs 59-54 with 10 minutes to go in that game, but was out-scored by DU 27-7 from there in an 81-66 loss.

SPRINGFIELD -- The Missouri State Lady Bears pushed 22ndranked Oklahoma State to the inal seconds Tuesday in their season opener at JQH Arena before falling 74-71 to the Cowgirls (2-0). Freshman Tyonna Snow put together one of the most memorable debuts in Lady Bear history and played a huge role at the end of the contest. Snow converted a three-point play with 13.8 to go to pull MSU within 72-71, capping a 19-point night that featured eight steals, the fourth-highest total in school history and the most in a debut. After closing to a single point, Missouri State fouled the Cowgirls and Snow appeared to have forced a jump ball with the possession arrow in MSU’s favor after the second free throw, only to see a foul whistled on the home team to send OSU to the line again. The Cowgirls missed the free throw, MSU rebounded and sprinted down the court before an untimely turnover sealed the game for OSU. The Lady Bears were hot from beyond the arc early, getting treys from Kenzie Williams and Hannah Wilkerson in the irst 75 seconds and another from Bry Snow for a 10-9 lead. OSU went ahead by four points before Whitney Edie hit MSU’s ifth trey of the half for a 16-16 tie at the 13:17 mark and accounted for eight straight MSU points that made for a 21-20 lead with 9:01 left in the irst period. Tyonna Snow played a major role over the next four minutes as she grabbed two steals, hit two layups and made a free throw for a 26-26 deadlock with 4:55 remaining. Freshman Hillary Chvatal followed with ive points and Williams added a free throw for an 8-0 run that ended with the Lady Bears leading 32-26 with 2:33 to play. Tyonna Snow hit and elbow jumper and Wilkerson hit two free throws for a 36-27 lead before OSU made a jumper for the 36-29 halftime margin as MSU closed on a 12-3 run over the inal 6:15. Oklahoma State opened the second half on a 10-0 run and held the Lady Bears scoreless for more than ive minutes before Karly Buer hit the tying 3-pointer for a 39-39 score with 14:42 to play. The Cowgirls built their lead to 54-46 with 9:51 remaining thanks to six straight points from reigning Big 12 Freshman of the Year Liz Donohoe, and led by double digits at 61-50 with 7:23 to play before a 7-0 MSU run. Tyonna Snow started things off with a steal and a layup before Desiree Phillips hit a 3-pointer 30 seconds later to make it 61-55. Bry Snow hit two free throws with 4:58 left to make it 61-57 before Donohoe quieted the crowd with her fourth 3-pointer. MSU pulled within four points twice more and OSU scored twice for a 70-62 lead and 2:09 to play. Missouri State answered with a Buer jumper, two Tyonna Snow free throws and a Bry Snow layup for a 70-68 game with 1:02 left. The Lady Bears shot 46-percent from the loor (23-50) and 8-for13 from 3-point land. Bry Snow scored a career-high 12 points and Edie had 10 points and eight rebounds in a career-high 34 minutes.

PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico -- Missouri State got double-doubles from seniors Christiana Shorter and Whitney Edie to pace an 83-75 win over Central Florida in the consolation round of the Hardwood Tournament of Hope Wednesday (Nov. 21). Shorter tallied 24 points and 10 rebounds, while Edie also snagged 10 boards and tallied 16 points in the winning effort. Kenzie Williams added 13 points for the Lady Bears, while Hannah Wilkerson contributed 12. The victory looked like a sure thing in the early going as Shorter scored 18 in the irst half to lead MSU to a 39-22 advantage at the break. A put-back by Williams just four-and-a-half minutes into the second half extended the Lady Bears’ lead to 50-28, the team’s largest of the night. With less than 12 minutes left in the game, Williams knocked down a 3-pointer and then scored a quick layup 35 seconds later to put Nyla Milleson’s squad ahead 61-41 at the 11:04 mark, but the Knights seemed to ind a spark in the inal 10 minutes. Sara Djassi hit a pair of free throws and a jumper, while Erike Jones knocked down a short jumper to spark a 6-0 UCF run and cut the Missouri State advantage to 14. Later, a trey by Jackson ended the Knights’ 9-2 run and made it a 63-50 game with 9:52 remaining. The Lady Bears would eventually push their lead back to 17 as Edie scored ive points in a stretch of two minutes. Tyonna Snow’s charity shot at the 7:43 mark helped MSU lead 69-52 with order seemingly restored for the moment. But Missouri State went nearly ive minutes without a ield goal while UCF chewed away at the de icit. Jackson scored nine straight points for the Knights, including a pair of 3-pointers that made it a seven-point game with 4:49 left. Later, Gevenia Carter knocked down a trey with just over three minutes on the clock that pulled the Conference USA squad within 75-69. But the Lady Bears were game, and turned to veterans Shorter and Karly Buer down the stretch for key buckets. A put-back by Shorter gave MSU some breathing room at 77-69, and then an 18-footer by Buer at the 2:09 mark extended the Lady Bears’ advantage to double igures again, 79-69. A pair of Bry Snow free throws with 73 ticks to go put MSU on top by 11 before a traditional three-point play by Jackson in the inal seconds provided the inal eight-point margin of victory. The effort by Shorter was her 22nd career double-double and ninth 20-point scoring performance. She was 12-for-20 from the ield and helped MSU ire at a 53.8-percent (35-for-65) clip for the game. MSU was just 1-for-8 (.125) from bonus distance and 12-for-20 (.600) from the line. However, the Lady Bears overcame 27 turnovers with a commanding 53-43 rebounding advantage while blocking six shots. UCF was 26-for-81 (.321) overall from the ield after iring at a 15.8-percent clip in the irst half. The Knights knocked down seven 3-pointers (7-for-20) and were 16-for-26 (.615) at the charity stripe. Carter added 14 points as the only other UCF player to score in double igures, while Jones joined Edie and Shorter with a game-high 10 rebounds, including eight offensive boards.

PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico -- Missouri State played an even second half with undefeated Gonzaga Tuesday night, but a 16-0 run by the Bulldogs midway through the game was the difference in an 80-66 setback in the opening round of the Hardwood Tournament of Hope. Keani Albanez scored a game-high 19 points for Gonzaga (5-0), which knocked down nine 3-pointers and shot 46.8 percent (29for-62) from the ield. Missouri State (1-2) was led by Whitney Edie with 16 points on a 7-for-13 shooting performance, while Christiana Shorter scored 12, and Karly Buer tallied 11 points. The Lady Bears committed 20 turnovers and overcame a slow start with a 50-percent shooting effort in the second half. A Hannah Wilkerson coast-to-coast layup with four-and-a-half minutes left in the irst half tied the game, 27-27 and ended a 6-2 Lady Bears’ run at the time. But Gonzaga responded with a 14-0 outburst before the half to lead 41-27 at the break, and then extended its advantage to 16 points with the irst bucket of the second stanza. Midway through the half, the Bulldogs extended their advantage to 21 points on a turn-around jumper by Stephanie Golden that made it a 62-41 game with 10:41 to go. But the Lady Bears never surrendered and trimmed their de icit to 10 on a Shorter layup at the 6:57 mark as part of an 18-point surge over the next four minutes. But Gonzaga had too much irepower down the stretch and scored eight of the game’s next 10 points to put it out of reach. The Lady Bears inished 26-for-58 (.448) from the ield, 4-for-12 (.333) from bonus distance and 10-for-17 from the line (.588). MSU owned a 36-35 rebounding edge and snagged 10 steals, including four by Kenzie Williams.

LADY BEARS

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Missouri State outscored Arkansas-Little Rock by 10 points in the second half Thursday to earn a 78-68 victory over the Trojans in non-conference women’s basketball play at the Jack Stephens Center in Little Rock. The Lady Bears ripped off runs of 7-0 and 10-0 after the game was tied at 49-49 early in the second period to distance themselves from the home team and placed four scorers in double igures as both teams moved to 1-1 on the season. Kenzie Williams (20), Bry Snow (15) and Hannah Wilkerson (13) all produced career-high scoring efforts and Whitney Edie notched her irst career double-double with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Missouri State got off to a slow start with ive turnovers on its irst eight possessions, but still took a 9-7 lead on the ninth possession thanks to a Williams 3-pointer. In fact, the Lady Bears did not miss a shot of any kind for nearly six minutes to start the game, going 3-for-3 from the ield and 6-for-6 from the free throw line for a 13-11 advantage before inally missing at the 14:12 mark. The Trojans came back and took a four-point lead before the Lady Bears answered with an 8-0 run on four layups for a 23-19 lead with 8:51 left in the period. That advantage would be the largest for either club until halftime as four ties and nine lead changes followed on the way to a 42-42 deadlock at the break. Missouri State used a three-point play from Edie and a Bry Snow layup to lead 47-44 with 18:48 to go in the game, then fended off a pair of UALR tying scores with a 7-0 run by Williams and Wilkerson to lead 56-49 at the 14:38 mark. UALR scored two quick buckets to cut the gap to three points when the Lady Bears asserted themselves again, this time with a 10-0 run to lead 66-53 with just under 11 minutes to play. Missouri State pushed the lead to as many as 17 at 74-57 before UALR’s Janette Merriex nailed three consecutive 3-pointers as part of an 11-0 run that inally ended when Edie hit a pair of free throws for a 76-68 score with 2:46 on the clock. The Lady Bears kept the home team from scoring again to account for the inal margin. Missouri State shot 42.9-percent (27-63) from the loor and held a 13-point margin at the foul line, shooting 22-for-27 compared to 9-for-14 for UALR. MSU held a 46-34 rebounding margin, including 16 offensive boards, overcoming 21 turnovers in the process.

PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico -- Clutch play by Desiree Phillips and Christiana Shorter in the game’s deciding moments helped lead Missouri State past UC Santa Barbara, 68-61, in the consolation inals of the Hardwood Tournament of Hope women’s basketball event Thursday (Nov. 22). After the Gauchos came all the way back from a double- igure de icit with 8:10 to play, Phillips broke the 46-46 tie with a baseline left jumper to put MSU (3-2) on top for good. But Phillips didn’t stop there, feeding Shorter for a quick bucket less than a minute later and then draining back-to-back 3-pointers that pushed the Lady Bears’ advantage back to 10 points, 59-49, with just under ive minutes to play. Phillips inished with a career-high 10 points as part of a crew of ive MSU players to score in double igures. Whitney Edie had team-highs of 17 points and 10 rebounds, while Shorter tacked on 16 points. Hannah Wilkerson and Kenzie Williams each added 11 points in the victory that led MSU to a 2-1 record and ifth-place inish in Mexico. In the game’s inal four minutes, UCSB’s Nicole Nesbit caught ire to keep the Big West Conference foes in the game. Nesbit made four free throws, and Sweets Underwood knocked down a pair of jumpers, the latter with 81 seconds remaining, to make it a 60-57 game. But just as they did the entire afternoon, the Lady Bears responded with a key play. With the ball loose on the loor in front of their own bench and less than a minute to play, the Lady Bears’ Kenzie Williams found the handle and fed a laser-strike pass to a wide-open Shorter. Shorter converted the wide-open layup, was fouled, and completed the 3-point play to end the Gauchos’ threat and push MSU back ahead by six. Shorter, Edie and Williams combined to go 4-for-6 at the foul line in the inal minute to ice the win and give MSU its second victory in as many days. In the irst half, Edie scored 13 points, including Missouri State’s last 11 of the opening period, to help the Lady Bears to a narrow 27-23 lead at the break. The Lady Bears jumped out to a 5-2 lead in the irst three minutes of the game with a 3-pointer by Hannah Wilkerson. After UCSB tied the game with an ensuing 5-2 run, Williams had the play of the half by gathering in a long offensive rebound, driving to the bucket and converting in traf ic while being fouled. Williams tacked on the bonus free throw to put MSU ahead 10-7 at the 12:17 mark, and the defending MVC champions never relinquished their lead the rest of the half. The Lady Bears’ largest lead of the irst stanza was 18-9 after a Phillips baseline left jumper and an Edie layup in transition put the cap on an 11-2 outburst at the 8:05 mark. UCSB put together a brief 8-2 run to pull within 20-17 with 4:45 to go in the opening half when Mason dropped in her fourth ield goal of the period, but MSU quickly responded with an Edie 3-pointer and ran its lead to eight twice more before the intermission.

SPRINGFIELD -- Missouri State overcame a ive-point de icit with less than a minute to play in regulation and a JQH Arena-record 40 points by Oral Roberts senior guard Kevi Luper to grab a 73-72 overtime victory over the Golden Eagles Thursday evening. Facing a 65-60 de icit as time wound down, MSU’s Kenzie Williams drained a 3-pointer from the right wing with 53.8 left to spark a dramatic sequence for the Lady Bears. Christiana Shorter blocked ORU’s shot with 26 seconds to play and MSU raced to the other end where Whitney Edie’s runner in the lane tied the game at 65 with 17 seconds left before the Missouri State defense held again to send the contest to overtime. In the extra period, Edie scored MSU’s irst four points, putting the team ahead by two each time, before Luper nailed a trey for her 40th point and a 72-71 ORU lead with 2:45 to play. Williams answered with a layup on the other end 12 seconds later for what proved to be the game-winning basket as neither team scored the rest of the way. ORU’s inal possession began with 17 seconds to play and included a missed shot, jump ball with possession, and a inal missed shot to end the game. Missouri State led for much of the irst half before surrendering a late 7-0 ORU run that helped make the halftime score 30-29 in favor of the Golden Eagles. Oral Roberts carried that momentum into the second half, forcing turnovers on Missouri State’s irst seven possessions and converting ive into layups for a 40-29 advantage with 16:54 remaining. Missouri State responded with a 9-1 run over the next three minutes and ORU countered with back-to-back 3-pointers for a 47-38 lead and 12:30 to go, then pushed it to double-digits at 54-44 with 8:17 remaining. The Lady Bears halved the de icit over the next 68 seconds and Edie cut to the hoop and scored off a great pass from Hannah Wilkerson for a 54-51 score with 6:43 to play. The Lady Bear run continued to 10-0 on Shorter’s tying free throw with 5:50 on the clock and ORU ripped off a 7-0 run over the next two minutes to lead 61-54 and set the stage for MSU’s late-game heroics. Shorter’s big night ended with 21 points and nine rebounds on 10-for-11 shooting from the ield, which trails former Lady Bear Kelly Mago’s NCAA-record 16-for-16 performance in the MSU record book. Edie added 15 points and 12 boards for her fourth double-double in ive games, while Williams (15 on 6-for-8 shooting) and Wilkerson (10) scored in double igures as well. Missouri State (4-2) shot 48.3 percent compared to 37.0 for the Golden Eagles (2-3), including a 54.8 showing after halftime while holding ORU to 2-for-8 in the extra period. The Lady Bears also held a 46-35 rebounding advantage.

SPRINGFIELD -- Missouri State grabbed a Missouri Valley Conference-record 68 rebounds and used career highs of 22 points, 16 rebounds and ive steals from senior Whitney Edie to escape JQH Arena with a 70-67 victory over visiting Northern Kentucky Saturday afternoon in Spring ield. The Lady Bears (5-2) pulled down 35 offensive boards to help negate 31.6 percent shooting, and trailed by nine points with under eight minutes to play before scratching out their fourth consecutive victory, all by less than 10 points. Northern Kentucky fell to 1-5. Missouri State jumped out to a 14-6 lead less than six minutes into the game and looked poised for a runaway until going cold from the ield. Northern Kentucky cut MSU’s lead to three or fewer on six separate occasions as the Lady Bears dropped to 9-for-42 from the loor in the irst half, their only saving grace being a 40-17 rebounding advantage for a 30-28 lead at the break. The Lady Bears went without a point for nearly four minutes to begin the second half and NKU brie ly gained the lead until a 6-0 run capped by a Hannah Wilkerson jumper and two Mikala McGhee free throws made it 38-34 MSU with 13:36 to play. The Norse went on a 15-4 run over the next four minutes to go ahead 49-42 with 9:50 to play, then hit back-to-back 3-pointers after MSU cut the de icit to three points to make it 55-46 with 7:46 on the clock. Edie tallied ive points in the next 39 seconds for a 55-51 score and McGhee added a free throw at 6:03 for a 55-52 margin. NKU then converted a three-point play its next trip down the loor before Kenzie Williams, Wilkerson and Bry Snow made baskets for a new ball game at 58-58 with 4:33 to play, and great ball movement from Wilkerson to Williams to Edie brie ly gave MSU a 60-58 lead at the 3:58 mark before an NKU trey gave the visitors the lead back 15 seconds later. Williams drained a trey off another Wilkerson assist at the 3:04 mark, the Norse answered on their next possession before Bry Snow, Edie and Christiana Shorter combined for a 6-0 run and 70-64 lead with 70 seconds to play. NKU hit a 3-pointer with 55 seconds left and neither team scored after that in a chaotic inal minute. Missouri State’s rebounding total broke a 28-year-old school record that stood since a 66-board performance against Harding on Nov. 26, 1984, while also topping the MVC record of 67 set by Evansville in March 2005. MSU inished with a plus-30 margin on the glass. Edie scored 16 points and grabbed nine boards after halftime on the way to her fourth consecutive double-double. Williams added 14 points, and McGhee’s six points, seven rebounds and three assists all went for career highs.

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- Missouri State used a 24-5 second-half run and a 62-35 rebounding margin to earn a 69-55 road victory over Southeast Missouri State Friday evening at the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau, Mo.

In a matter of three minutes and 31 seconds, Williams netted 16 points, beginning with back-to-back 3-pointers and a layup for a 30-20 lead at the 6:54 mark, then adding two more treys around a pair of free throws to put MSU ahead 38-26 with 4:29 left in the irst half.

WICHITA, Kan. -- The Missouri State Lady Bears opened the Missouri Valley Conference season Thursday with a 76-64 loss to Wichita State inside Charles Koch Arena in Wichita. Missouri State fell to 8-5 overall with the setback, while the Shockers improved to 7-6. Wichita State made its irst three shots and built its lead to 3926 by halftime on the strength of 17-for-34 shooting and 14 MSU turnovers. The Shockers already had their lead at 13 just over nine minutes into the game at 21-8 and a 3-pointer from Lady Bear junior Desiree Phillips made it 23-15 with 8:14 to play and seemingly gave the visitors a bit of momentum. The Shockers answered with a basket from all-conference guard Jessica Diamond, two of her 17 irst-half points, and Missouri State cut the lead to single digits three more times but got no closer than eight points as WSU went back ahead by 13 at 35-22 with 2:23 to play and kept the lead to intermission. Missouri State began the second half with two quick buckets to close to within 39-30, but the Shockers again responded and went up by 14 points 49-35 with just under 15 minutes to play. Karly Buer’s 3-pointer keyed a 6-0 Lady Bear run that made it 49-41 with 13:20 to go, and Whitney Edie hit back-to-back layups for a 51-45 de icit with 10:51 to play, MSU’s closest margin since a 14-8 score early on. Bry Snow’s jumper in the lane made it a six-point game again at 53-47 with 8:49 to go, but the Shockers countered with a 7-0 run to lead 60-47 with six minutes left. The Lady Bears had it back to an eight-point game at 61-53 with 4:18 left and Bry Snow’s layup with 88 seconds remaining cut WSU’s advantage to 65-58 after a frustrating series of possessions that often resulted in WSU running the shot clock down before either an MSU foul or an offensive rebound kept the ball out of Missouri State’s hands. The Shockers spent the rest of the game thwarting Missouri State’s attempts to foul and extend the game, inishing 22-for-26 from the free throw line, including 18-for-22 in the second half, after entering the game at 65.9 percent on the season. Missouri State shot 56 percent in the second half to improve to 46.8 percent for the game, while WSU ended at 42.4 percent overall. The Lady Bears committed 22 turnovers and trailed by nine in that category, and the Shockers won the rebounding battle by a 33-32 margin that included 17 offensive boards. Edie led Missouri State with 14 points and Williams added 11. Christiana Shorter grabbed eight rebounds and Hannah Wilkerson dished out a team-high four assists. Diamond inished with 22 points for WSU.

SPRINGFIELD -- Missouri State junior Bry Snow hit two go-ahead baskets in the game’s inal 46.3 seconds Saturday afternoon to help the Lady Bears to a thrilling 80-77 victory over Drake at JQH Arena in Spring ield. MSU improved to 9-7 overall and 1-3 in the Missouri Valley Conference with head coach Nyla Milleson’s 100th win at Missouri State, making her the third coach in school history to reach that milestone while doing so in the second-fewest number of games, 177. Drake fell to 5-11 and 0-5 in league play. The Lady Bears held a double-digit lead early in the second half and led 68-60 with 8:16 to go before Drake ripped off a 15-1 run to lead 75-69 with 3:06 left. In fact, the Bulldogs shot 51.6 percent in the second half, including 7-of-11 from beyond the 3-point line, but Missouri State was able to hold on by committing just three turnovers after intermission and making 12-of-16 from the foul line in the period. Whitney Edie began the comeback with two free throws with 2:19 to play for a 75-71 score, and Hannah Wilkerson drained a 3-pointer on an in-bounds play with 1:18 to go before Snow’s irst go-ahead score at the 46.3 second mark gave the Lady Bears a 76-75 advantage. Drake took the lead back 16 seconds later when Webb City native Kyndal Clark hit two free throws as part of her game-high 26 points, and Edie then missed two free throws with 16.3 seconds to go, but Snow again came up big, grabbing the rebound and laying it in for the game-winning basket. The defense got a stop and Edie made amends with two made free throws for the 80-77 inal, as Kenzie Williams de lected Clark’s last-second 3-point attempt. Missouri State led by as many as six in the irst half and went into intermission up 36-33. The Bulldogs scored the irst four points of the second period for a brief lead before the Lady Bears used a 9-0 run to lead 45-37 on the way to their 50-40 advantage with 14:56 to play. The Bulldogs chipped away at the MSU lead and eventually went ahead 70-68 on a Clark layup in the midst of their 15-1 run. Edie led MSU with 25 points and 10 rebounds for her sixth doubledouble of the season, and Williams scored 14 points with a careerhigh seven assists. The Lady Bears shot 41.2 percent overall and from 3-point land, while Drake shot 27-for-59 overall for 45.8 percent.

It was a itting end to a game that included 13 lead changes and nine ties, and came on the heels of MSU’s Whitney Edie converting a 3-point play with 16.9 seconds left to hand Missouri State a brief 79-77 lead.

Bradley scored the next ive points to regain the lead and it changed hands three more times until an 8-2 Missouri State run that ended when Christiana Shorter put back a missed shot for a 28-23 advantage and 6:04 to play. Freshman Hillary Chvatal corralled MSU’s 16th offensive board and converted at the 2:40 mark as part of a 6-0 run that Snow capped with a layup for a 39-30 lead with 2:01 left in the period. Missouri State extended its lead to nine points on four separate occasions early in the second half before the Braves mounted a 5-0 run to close to 51-47 with 16:13 on the clock. Shorter answered with a conventional three-point play and the Lady Bears stayed ahead between ive and seven points until Yohn drained a 3-pointer with 10:42 to play for a 60-58 score. The Braves continued their run to 10-0 for a 63-60 lead before Desiree Phillips stopped it with a 3-pointer at the 7:47 mark for a 63-all tie. After Bradley took a 69-65 lead, Kenzie Williams hit a 3-pointer from the right corner and the Braves hit a free throw before Shorter tied the game at 70 with a free throw and Hannah Wilkerson hit two layups in the next 43 seconds for a 74-70 lead and 4:11 to play. The Braves retook the lead at 77-76 with a 3-point play with 1:40 to go, and the score held until Edie rebounded her own miss and converted a three-point play with 16.9 seconds left to put the Lady Bears ahead 79-77. After Yohn’s game-winner, Williams got off a shot from just inside half court that missed wide right. The Lady Bears put four scorers in double igures, and seven players scored six or more.

LADY BEARS

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Northern Iowa hit eleven 3-pointers in the irst half and 15 for the game in a 75-52 victory over the visiting Missouri State Lady Bears Thursday evening in Missouri Valley Conference action at the McLeod Center in Cedar Falls, Iowa. The Lady Bears fell to 8-6 overall and 0-2 in league play, while UNI is 7-8 and 2-1 in Valley contests. MSU also lost at Wichita State and UNI early in the league schedule last season before rebounding to win the regular season title. The game’s irst 12 minutes could not have gone much worse for the Lady Bears as UNI built a 29-12 lead with seven made 3-pointers by the 7:58 mark, while Missouri State was 4-for-14 from the loor with 11 turnovers at that point and had senior Christiana Shorter on the bench saddled with three personal fouls. Missouri State used a 7-0 run to pull to 29-19 with 4:58 to play, and brie ly cut the UNI lead to single digits at 32-23 when NiJay Gaines put back a missed free with 3:42 left in the half. The Panthers responded with their ninth, 10th and 11th 3-pointers to go into halftime with a 41-23 advantage, shooting 11-for-20 from the beyond the arc to match an MSU opponent high for the season by intermission. The second half began much better for MSU as the Lady Bears shaved ive points off the UNI lead while drawing three fouls in the irst 43 seconds for a 41-28 score. Missouri State’s success was shortlived, however, as the Panthers ripped off a 14-2 run over the next ive-plus minutes while the Lady Bears suffered through an 0-for-7 ield goal drought to go ahead 55-30 with 13:54 to play. The Lady Bears got no closer than 21 points after that as the Panthers inished the contest 15-for-26 from 3-point land to tie a Missouri State opponent single-game record. UNI shot 44.9 percent overall (22-49), while MSU inished 17-of-61 for 27.9 percent. Whitney Edie led MSU with 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting while Kenzie Williams and Hannah Wilkerson scored nine apiece. Shorter was held scoreless for the irst time in her 112 game career. UNI’s Jacqui Kalin, the 2011 MVC Player of the Year, totaled 25 points and hit six treys for the Panthers.

SPRINGFIELD -- Creighton looked every bit the preseason favorite to win the Missouri Valley Conference Monday evening in a 73-53 victory over the Missouri State Lady Bears at JQH Arena in Springield. Creighton (13-4, 5-1 MVC), the league leader in both 3-pointers per game (9.1) and percentage (.379), shot 13-for-32 from beyond the arc and 45.6 percent overall for the game. Meanwhile, Missouri State’s (9-8, 1-4) MVC-leading averages of 45 rebounds, 17 offensive boards and 25 free throw attempts failed to translate as the team inished with 10 offensive boards and 7-for-15 from the foul line while trailing 38-33 in total rebounds. The Bluejays hit three long balls in the game’s irst ive minutes and began the contest 7-for-10 from the loor for a 17-8 lead with 13:45 left in the irst half. Missouri State countered that with a 7-0 run to cut CU’s lead to 17-15 before the Bluejays ripped off a 14-0 run that included four 3-pointers in less than two minutes to go ahead 31-15 with 8:51 on the clock. The Lady Bears held Creighton without a point for nearly seven minutes after that as the Jays suffered through an 0-for-13 ield goal drought, but Missouri State was only able to shave eight points off the lead before CU scored for a 33-23 tally and 1:51 left in the period. The Bluejays then banked in a trey at the halftime buzzer for a 36-25 lead at the break. Creighton knocked down another 3-pointer 19 seconds into the second half and the Lady Bears cut the lead to 12 points on two occasions before the Bluejays used an 8-0 run to build their largest lead yet at 49-29 with 14:30 remaining in the game. Missouri State had the de icit to 15 points three minutes later before a 9-0 CU run made it 60-36 with 7:02 to play, and the Jays kept the lead at 20 or better the rest of the game. MSU, which has averaged nearly 80 points per home game the last two seasons, was held to its lowest point total at JQH Arena since a 53-point output in December 2008. Mikala McGhee, Hannah Wilkerson and Kenzie Williams shared high scoring honors with eight apiece. McKenzie Fujan scored 15 for Creighton and Sarah Nelson notched a double-double with 10 points and 10 boards. Missouri State shot 21-for-56 overall but did commit a seasonlow 11 turnovers.

EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- Evansville shot better than 65 percent in the irst half and kept pace with the Missouri Valley Conference leaders Friday with a 77-53 win over the Missouri State Lady Bears at the Ford Center in Evansville, Ind. Missouri State fell to 9-9 overall and 1-5 in the league, while the Purple Aces moved to 7-10 and 5-1 in Valley games. A crowd of 3,246, made up primarily of local elementary school students, enjoyed the 11 a.m. matinee.

Missouri State had the de icit to seven points with 11:16 left in the half, but Evansville spent the next ive minutes extending its lead to 31-15 with a 3-pointer at the 6:50 mark that improved the Aces to 12-of-16 shooting. Whitney Edie scored Missouri State’s next six points to close within 12 before the Purple Aces ired back with four straight points to get the margin back to 16 at 37-21 with 3:21 to play. Evansville pushed its advantage to as many as 17 and Tyonna Snow scored MSU’s inal six points for a 44-29 halftime score in favor of the home team. UE shot 65.4 percent overall and made half of its eight 3-point tries in the half. UE maintained its hot-shooting after the break with a 3-for-5 start to the second period that led to a 53-34 score with 15:44 to play.

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- Karly Buer scored a season-high 25 points and seniors Whitney Edie and Christiana Shorter each posted doubledoubles to lead the Missouri State Lady Bears (10-9, 2-5 Missouri Valley Conference) to a 79-72 victory over Southern Illinois (4-14, 1-6) Sunday at SIU Arena in Carbondale. Buer hit a career-high ive 3-pointers and shot 7-for-12 from the loor, while Edie’s 18 points and 10 rebounds and Shorter’s 12 points and 10 boards made them the irst set of MSU teammates to record double-doubles in a game since Maggie Dwyer and Casey Garrison did it Jan. 27, 2009 at Evansville. It was a game of runs early as SIU scored the irst basket before the Lady Bears ripped off a 12-1 run to lead 12-3 at the irst media timeout. Missouri State then went nearly four minutes without a point while the Salukis regained the lead with a 10-0 run that was stopped with Edie’s layup at the 11:03 mark for a 14-13 MSU advantage. The Lady Bears added just two more points during SIU’s ensuing four-minute scoreless spell before Buer hit 3-pointers on consecutive MSU possessions for a 22-17 lead with 6:14 left in the half. Missouri State got the lead to 10 at 31-21 on Edie’s rebound and putback with 1:34 remaining before the Salukis hit 3-pointers on their inal three possessions, all coming in the inal 75 seconds of the half, to climb back to 31-30 at intermission. The Salukis made it four straight treys just 13 seconds into the second period and eventually extended their run to 14-0 over both halves to lead 35-31 with 19 minutes left in the game. The teams exchanged baskets until an Edie layup tied the game at 39-39 with 14:42 remaining, and Buer’s third triple of the game regained the lead for MSU at 44-43 with 13:42 left. Buer hit another long ball at the 12:09 mark and added a jumper in the lane just more than a minute later for a 51-45 lead, but SIU’s Rishonda Napier answered with 3-pointers 37 seconds apart for a 51-all tie and 10 minutes left. Missouri State responded with an 8-1 run that included Buer’s ifth trey and two Shorter layups to go ahead 59-52 with 7:47 to play, and a Shorter free throw a minute later had the lead back to eight points at 62-54. Kenzie Williams then added a pair of 3-pointers, each time giving MSU its largest lead of the game, for a 68-56 advantage with 4:12 to play. SIU put a scare in the Lady Bears as time wound down, cutting the lead to ive points with exactly a minute left, but MSU hit six free throws in the inal 53 seconds to close out the win. Tyonna Snow added 11 points to give MSU four players in double igures. Shorter’s 10 rebounds move her past Tiff Terwelp for ifth in school history. Williams had seven steals for the No. 8 singlegame total in school history. MSU shot 38.4 percent for the game compared to 38.8 percent for the Salukis, but made 9-of-21 tries from 3-point land against 7-of-25 for SIU. The Lady Bears held a 53-43 rebounding advantage and dished out 17 assists.

SPRINGFIELD -- The Missouri State Lady Bears cracked the 90-point barrier for a second consecutive game Friday evening, out-running Bradley for a 91-86 Missouri Valley Conference victory at JQH Arena. Kenzie Williams hit six 3-pointers on the way to a career-high 23 points to lead ive Lady Bears (12-10, 4-6 MVC) in double igures, while the Braves fell to 9-12 and 3-7 in league play. Missouri State never trailed in the game and led by as many as 13 points in each half, but the persistent Braves threw numerous runs at the Lady Bears, the last of which made it a two-point contest in the game’s inal minute. Williams’ sixth trey of the game gave MSU an 86-76 lead with just 1:40 remaining before Bradley ripped off a 7-0 run in 55 seconds to make it a one-possession game at 86-83 with 45 seconds to go. A frenetic last few seconds included two Karly Buer free throws for an 88-83 lead followed by a BU 3-pointer and MSU turnover that gave the Braves the ball down a score with 32 seconds left. Hannah Wilkerson became the MSU hero after that, stealing a BU pass with 18 seconds to play, making one free throw, then grabbing an offensive rebound on the second of two MSU free throw misses with 7.7 ticks left before draining a pair from the charity stripe for the inal margin. Williams added a blocked shot with 8.2 seconds remaining during the inal sequence. The irst 38 minutes of the game played out much like the inal two with the Lady Bears building substantial leads, only to see Bradley chip away. MSU led 14-8 at the irst media timeout and was ahead by double digits at 21-10 on a Whitney Edie 3-pointer with 13:19 left in the irst half. The Braves pulled within ive points before Tyonna Snow and Williams book-ended a 14-2 MSU run with 3-pointers for a 37-21 score and 6:30 left in the period. Missouri State’s 16-point lead evaporated in less than ive minutes as the Braves used an 18-2 run to tie the game at 39-39, and Christiana Shorter, Williams and Buer each scored three points in a 9-0 run over the inal 77 seconds of the irst half. MSU was back ahead by 13 with 18:09 to go in the game, and saw a 65-53 lead cut to 65-62 with 10:51 to go. The Braves pulled to 70-69 with 8:35 left before the Lady Bears went on a 12-0 run and held BU without a point for over four minutes to lead 82-69 at the 5:48 mark. Shorter locked up her 25th career double-double before halftime and inished with 17 points and 11 rebounds, while Edie had 20 points and eight boards. Buer added 13 points, eight rebounds and six assists, and Tyonna Snow rounded out the double- igure scorers with 10 points. Missouri State shot 33-71 overall compared to 34-74 for the Braves. The Lady Bears made 10 treys and out-scored BU 15-7 at the charity stripe. MSU held a 51-31 rebounding edge, including 24 offensive boards that led to 26 second-chance points.

Missouri State answered ISU’s threat at that point with a 7-0 run in the span of 43 seconds, using back-to-back layups from Christiana Shorter and a 3-point play from Kenzie Williams to lead 62-54. Desiree Phillips converted another 3-point play a minute later for a 65-56 lead, the Redbirds cut it to ive points, but the Lady Bears responded with a 9-0 run that included three key offensive rebounds and ended with a Williams 3-pointer from the wing for a 74-60 lead and 8:38 on the clock. The Lady Bears pushed the lead to 16 points at 81-65 with 4:43 to go and Illinois State had it back to a 10-point game just 40 seconds later before Whitney Edie answered with two buckets and Tyonna Snow added a free throw for an 87-72 margin with 2:45 left to thwart any further Redbird rallies. Illinois State started the game with two quick 3-pointers before the MSU defense held the Redbirds without a point for nearly four minutes while the offense went on a 9-0 run that eventually turned into a 13-2 spurt on Bry Snow’s layup at the 13:55 mark for a 17-8 score. MSU’s lead was as many as 10 in the irst half after Phillips hit a trey for 28-18 with 10:22 to play, and ISU’s Candace Sykes tied the score at 43-all with a 3-pointer with 1:57 left before Karly Buer knocked down two free throws and Edie scored with two seconds left for a 47-43 halftime advantage.

LADY BEARS

SPRINGFIELD -- Missouri State battled from 13 points down in the second half Friday to force a 56-all tie but was never able to take the lead as Indiana State earned a 71-67 Missouri Valley Conference victory at JQH Arena in Spring ield. The Sycamores (12-7, 4-4 MVC) turned the game in their favor with a 21-4 run that took roughly ive minutes of game time and spanned both halves to build a 47-34 advantage that was too much for the Lady Bears (10-10, 2-6) to overcome. The teams combined for ive scoring runs of 7-0 or better in the irst half, including the Lady Bears using a 7-0 spurt to go ahead 30-26 with 3:04 to go in the period. Kenzie Williams began the run with a 3-pointer and Missouri State seemed to grab momentum with four free throws as a result of the Sycamores picking up both a personal and technical foul on the same play, but Indiana State countered with a 13-2 run to close the half with a 39-32 advantage. After the Lady Bears scored to begin the second period, Indiana State rattled off another 8-0 run to lead 47-34 just 2:34 into the half. Missouri State answered with an 8-0 run of its own that included two Williams steals that led to baskets 21 seconds apart, and added three more steals over the next four minutes that culminated with a NiJay Gaines layup that got MSU within a point at 53-52 with 10:03 to play. Hannah Wilkerson’s jumper with 6:18 remaining tied the game at 56-apiece, but the visitors ired back with a 3-pointer to lead 6358 with exactly four minutes remaining. The Lady Bears were within two points with 2:47 left and again with 52.3 seconds on the clock when Karly Buer knocked down an elbow jumper. The teams exchanged turnovers over the next 16 seconds and the Sycamores hit two free throws before Tyonna Snow made a pair of foul shots for the Lady Bears after a trio of missed 3-pointers with eight seconds remaining. Indiana State then hit two more free throws with 7.2 seconds on the clock to secure the win. The Sycamores shot 50 percent for the game and out-rebounded Missouri State 39-26. The Lady Bears shot 41.8 percent overall and forced 24 ISU turnovers. Whitney Edie led MSU with 19 points and seven rebounds. Snow added 11 points and four steals, and Gaines scored a career-high nine points. Anna Munn scored 27 for the Sycamores.

SPRINGFIELD -- The Missouri State Lady Bears scored 13 points in a furious rally over the game’s inal 73 seconds Sunday but could not overcome a 37-point performance from 2011 Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year Jacqui Kalin as UNI escaped JQH Arena with an 82-78 victory. Missouri State (12-11, 4-7 MVC) played catch-up almost the entire game after UNI (11-12, 6-5) went on an early 13-0 run, nearly pulling out a miracle win, but came up just short of a third consecutive victory. Trailing 75-65 after two UNI free throws with 1:17 left on the clock, Karly Buer’s 3-pointer with 1:13 remaining began the charge and was followed by a Tyonna Snow layup with 42 seconds left, another Buer trey with 29.4 on the clock, and Hannah Wilkerson hitting two free throws for a 78-75 de icit with 15 seconds to play. The Lady Bears nearly came up with an offensive rebound on Wilkerson’s miss of her third free throw during that sequence, and Snow added a 3-pointer with 10 seconds to go before Kalin iced the game with a pair from the charity stripe and ive seconds to play. UNI went 7-for-12 from the foul line in the last 58 seconds, making the free throw disparity much closer than it was most of the game, as the Panthers inished 23-for-29 while MSU made 35 foul shots in 47 tries, the most makes for the Lady Bears since 2010 and the most attempts in a game since 2001. After UNI’s 13-0 run to lead 19-8 with 12:16 to play, Missouri State mounted numerous comeback tries but never could regain the advantage. Wilkerson hit a 3-pointer for 23-17 and added a 3-point play for 25-20 with 8:22 left before UNI went up 35-22 with a 10-2 run. Missouri State then countered with a 10-0 run to close within one possession, only to see Kalin answer with a trey for 38-32 with 1:43 left in the irst half. The Panthers were back ahead by 13 at 50-37 with 16 minutes left, Missouri State answered with a 7-0 run to close to 50-44, but another Kalin trey made it 62-49 with 8:40 left. The sequence repeated itself again with a 7-0 MSU run and Kalin triple for 67-57 UNI with 4:48 to play, and the Panthers’ lead remained between eight and 12 points until Missouri State’s comeback in the inal minute. While Missouri State out-scored the Panthers by 12 points at the foul line, the Lady Bears shot just 19-for-52 overall and 5-for-17 from beyond the arc, while UNI made 24 of its 64 shots and went 11-for-30 from distance. Snow shot 11-for-16 from the foul line and inished with 18 points and 10 rebounds for her irst career double-double, while Buer (18), Whitney Edie (12) and Wilkerson (10) joined her in double igures. MSU held a 43-36 rebounding edge.

OMAHA, Neb. -- Missouri State played its best defensive game of the Missouri Valley Conference season for the irst 30 minutes Thursday evening before the home-standing Creighton Bluejays got hot with a decisive 17-1 run to pull away to a 67-51 victory at D.J.

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- The Missouri State Lady Bears held a double-digit lead early in the second half Friday but could not hold off the hard-charging Indiana State Sycamores in a 71-63 Missouri Valley Conference setback at the Hulman Center. The Lady Bears dropped to 14-14 overall and 6-10, while the Sycamores held on to fourth place in the league standings at 17-9 and 9-6 in league games. The two teams were within three points of each other for more than 15 minutes of the irst half despite each leading by at least ive points during the period. The Sycamores jumped ahead 6-0 and the Lady Bears quickly evened the score at 8-8 with a pair of Bry Snow free throws at the 14:52 mark. From there, two ties and 11 lead changes accounted for the next 14 minutes of action before Whitney Edie’s layup capped a 6-0 Lady Bear run for a 31-26 lead with 29.9 seconds remaining. The Sycamores converted on their inal possession for a 31-28 halftime score. Indiana State closed to 33-32 just 55 seconds into the second period, but the Lady Bears responded with a 10-0 run over the next two-plus minutes that was punctuated by a Christiana Shorter driving layup for a 43-32 advantage at the 16:26 mark. Missouri State went cold over the next 11 minutes, netting only ive points as the Sycamores turned the tables to lead 53-48 before Desiree Phillips knocked down a corner trey for a 53-51 de icit with 5:30 left in regulation. The Lady Bears trailed by exactly two points on four more occasions, the last with 2:15 to play, but never could draw closer before the Sycamores went on a 7-0 run to put the game away. Phillips matched a career high with 10 points for Missouri State and Karly Buer scored 11 while four other Lady Bears tallied at least eight points. ISU freshman Marina Laramie led all scorers with 27 points, including 21 in the second half. Missouri State shot 22-for-55 (.400) overall compared to 26-for62 (.419) for the Sycamores, and trailed 40-36 in total rebounds.

SPRINGFIELD -- In a game composed of numerous runs from each team, it was the Missouri State Lady Bears who had the last charge, pulling away from a 60-all tie with 1:38 remaining to earn a 66-63 Missouri Valley Conference victory over visiting Evansville at JQH Arena Saturday. The victory moved the Lady Bears (14-13, 6-9 MVC) into seventh place in the league standings, and more importantly pulled the club within one-half game of Evansville (8-17, 6-8) for sixth place and a irst-round bye in next month’s MVC Tournament. Big runs were the story for the irst three-fourths of the contest. After Evansville led 11-8 early on, Missouri State held the Purple Aces without a ield goal for nine minutes while going on a 23-4 run to lead 31-15 with 4:40 left in the irst half. Evansville countered with a 21-2 run of its own, burying ive 3-pointers in ive minutes of game time to go ahead 36-33 just 50 seconds into the second period. The Lady Bears responded with an 8-0 run from there after Kenzie Williams drained a triple at the 15:51 mark for a 41-36 advantage, and Evansville answered with a 9-0 run to go up 45-41 with 12:45 left. Karly Buer tied the game at 45-all with 11 minutes left before Evansville scored the next ive points and forced the Lady Bears to play catch-up until Whitney Edie hit two free throws for a 53-51 lead with 6:36 remaining. The Purple Aces brie ly held a one-point lead before Edie answered with a jumper in the lane and Williams hit a trey from the wing to kick off a 7-0 run that put the Lady Bears up 60-54 with 3:39 to play. Evansville tied the game at 60-60 two minutes later on Laura Friday’s 3-pointer before Edie answered with the go-ahead basket with 1:25 left. After UE hit a free throw, Buer snatched a critical offensive rebound and putback as the shot clock buzzer sounded to put MSU ahead 64-61 with 40.2 seconds left. The junior added two free throws with 24.3 ticks remaining after a defensive stop, and Evansville scored with 2.9 seconds left to close within 66-63. Missouri State survived a turnover on the ensuing in-bounds play as UE’s half-court heave at the buzzer missed wide left. Williams scored 17 points to lead MSU, while Buer (15), Edie (14) and Tyonna Snow (10) joined her in double igures. Edie’s nine rebounds left her one shy of her 10th double-double, and four other Lady Bears grabbed seven boards as Missouri State held a 45-35 advantage on the glass. The Lady Bears survived a 36.5 percent shooting night thanks in part to going 15-for-20 at the foul line, while Evansville shot 21-for56 overall but 11-for-27 from beyond the arc.

LADY BEARS

SPRINGFIELD -- Missouri State freshman guard Tyonna Snow scored a career-high 29 points, including a school-record 18 from the free throw line, to lead the Lady Bears (13-13, 5-9 Missouri Valley Conference) to an 81-74 victory over MVC rival Southern Illinois (4-20, 1-12) Thursday evening at JQH Arena. Snow shot 18-for-26 from the charity stripe to break Jackie Stiles’ record of 17 makes set in the 2000 MVC Tournament, and added six rebounds and seven steals for the No. 8 single game total in school history (she already sits at No. 4 on that list with eight steals in the season opener). Her 29 total points are also the most for an MSU freshman since Casey Garrison scored 33 against Western Kentucky in December 2008. Kenzie Williams threatened a triple-double with 12 points and career-highs of nine rebounds and seven assists, and Whitney Edie came on strong late in the game to inish with 13 points and 10 boards for her ninth double-double of the season as the Lady Bears overcame a 64-55 de icit with 8:00 remaining. NiJay Gaines started an 8-0 MSU run at that point to pull the Lady Bears to 64-63 with 5:44 left, and a Karly Buer 3-pointer made it 67-66 before Snow drained two free throws for a 68-all tie and made another for the 69-68 advantage with 3:38 to go. Edie’s 3-point play at 2:54 made it a 6-0 run and 72-68 MSU lead, and Missouri State scored four straight points from 72-70 to go up 76-70 with 49 seconds left. Snow hit two more free throws with 17.2 seconds left for the school record and a 79-74 lead, and Buer added two with 1.2 seconds remaining for the inal margin. The Salukis began the game 8-for-11 from the loor on the way to an 18-11 lead at the 14:29 mark, and the Lady Bears chased the visitors down over the next 10 minutes until Edie’s jumper gave MSU a 30-29 lead with 4:09 left in the half. The lead changed hands three more times before halftime, with SIU going into the break ahead 37-35. After the Lady Bears went up 40-37 just 56 seconds into the second period, the game was tied six times with another ive lead changes before the Salukis turned a 53-52 de icit into their 64-55 lead. Missouri State managed to score 81 points despite shooting just 30.7 percent from the ield thanks to a 30-for-43 effort at the foul line. SIU shot 38.6 percent overall, but just 32.4 percent in the second half. The Salukis placed ive scorers in double igures, led by Dyana Pierre with 18 points and 15 rebounds. MSU won the rebounding battle 54-48 and recorded 16 steals.

MVC Tournament - First Round March 14, 2013 ■ St. Charles, Mo. The Family Arena

NORMAL, Ill. -- Illinois State jumped out to a 20-point lead less than 10 minutes into the game Sunday, building enough cushion to withstand a second-half charge by Missouri State in a 81-60 victory over the Lady Bears inside Redbird Arena. The Lady Bears fell to 14-15 overall and 6-11 in Missouri Valley Conference games, but still hold a chance of gaining the No. 6 seed in the conference tournament. The Redbirds improved to 20-8 and 12-4 in the league, keeping their hopes alive for a share of the regular-season MVC title. Missouri State could not have drawn up a worse start as the Redbirds converted six MSU turnovers into their irst 10 points just ive minutes into the game and eventually built a 24-2 lead a tick under 10 minutes into the contest. Illinois State led 47-15 at halftime, shooting 54.5 percent compared to 22.2 for the Lady Bears, and turned 15 MSU turnovers into 19 points in the irst period. The Redbirds opened the second stanza with a 10-0 run to lead 57-15 and Missouri State responded with a 12-0 spurt that included seven points from Karly Buer for a 57-27 tally with 14:09 to play. Missouri State added a 9-0 run to pull to 67-46 with 7:05 remaining, and Bry Snow connected for back-to-back layups for a 6952 de icit with 4:51 left. The Lady Bears twice cut the lead to 16 but got no closer despite out-scoring the Redbirds 45-24 in the inal 16:05 of the game. Buer led MSU with 16 points and Bry Snow added 14 for her highest total in MVC play. In addition to scoring 13 points, Christiana Shorter grabbed eight rebounds to become the fourth player at Missouri State and 15th in MVC history with 900 career boards, and attempted nine free throws to pass Casey Garrison for second in school history in that category. MSU shot 44.4 percent in the second half to improve to 34.9 for the game (22-63), and Illinois State inished 30-for-69 from the loor. The Lady Bears held a 45-44 edge on the glass in a battle of the league’s top two rebounding teams.

SPRINGFIELD -- The Missouri State Lady Bears cut all but one point off a 21-point de icit Saturday afternoon at JQH Arena but were never able to complete the comeback as visiting Wichita State held on for a 74-69 victory and its irst Missouri Valley Conference regularseason championship. The Lady Bears fell to 14-16 overall and 6-12 in the league, good for eighth place and a matchup with ninth-seeded Drake (10-19, 5-13) at 4:05 p.m. Thursday (March 14) in the irst game of the 2013 MVC Tournament in St. Charles, Mo. The Shockers improved to 21-9 and inished the league schedule at 15-3. Wichita State built its lead early with a 24-4 run to go ahead 30-12 with 9:38 to play in the irst half, and led by as many as 22 points before Whitney Edie scored eight straight MSU points and Karly Buer added a jumper to cap a closing 10-1 run for a 39-26 halftime score in favor of WSU. Buer began the second period with another basket to make it 39-28, but the Shockers had the advantage back at 21 points with 13:45 to play, leading 54-33 at that point and 57-38 before the Lady Bears rattled off an 8-0 run with four different players scoring to close to 57-46 with 9:02 left. The Lady Bears had the de icit under 10 points with 6:52 to play on Buer’s 3-pointer from the corner for a 61-53 score, and the Snow sisters made it a 10-0 run as Tyonna hit a layup and Bry converted a 3-point play with 5:26 remaining for a 61-58 de icit. Edie twice pulled Missouri State within a point with under ive minutes to play, the second with 4:11 on the clock, and it was a fourpoint game with 1:41 to play when the Shockers pulled down three offensive rebounds and forced a turnover to keep the ball until 25.3 seconds remained. WSU hit ive free throws from there for the inal margin. Missouri State shot 56.3 percent in the second half against the league’s top defensive team, though WSU did block 13 shots in the contest, a record for a Lady Bear opponent, to keep MSU at 41.3 percent for the game. Edie led MSU with 21 points and seven rebounds in her inal home game, and Buer (13) and Kenzie Williams (10) joined her in double igures. The Shockers held a 42-38 rebounding edge. Missouri State’s 19 offensive boards pushed its season total to 528, a school record. Wichita State was led by Jazimen Gordon’s 20 points and 13 rebounds.

St. CHARLES, Mo. -- Missouri State’s women’s basketball season came to an end Thursday afternoon at the hands of the Drake Bulldogs with an 81-66 setback in the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament irst round at The Family Arena. Ninth-seeded Drake (11-19) out-scored the No. 8 Lady Bears (14-17) by a 27-7 margin in the inal 10:05 of the game to advance to Friday’s quarter inal round against top-seeded Wichita State. Missouri State led much of the irst half, using an early 8-0 run to gain an 8-5 advantage, and, after Kenzie Williams buried a 3-pointer with 12:06 to play for a 14-13 lead, stayed ahead until the Bulldogs went up 26-24 with 6:54 to play. Hannah Wilkerson scored the inal ive points of a 7-0 run that put Missouri State ahead 37-30 with 2:48 on the clock, and the Lady Bears entered halftime with a 39-34 lead thanks to holding Drake to 34.1 percent shooting. The Lady Bears twice pushed their lead to seven points early in the second period, but the Bulldogs used a 7-0 run to tie at 4343 and then buried back-to-back 3-pointers for a pair of one-point leads and a 6-for-8 shooting start to the half. Karly Buer’s jumper with 15:15 left put MSU back on top 50-49, and her runner in the lane ive minutes later extended the margin to ive points at 59-54. Drake countered with a 7-0 run to lead for the irst time in nearly 16 minutes of game time when Mary Pat Specht’s 3-pointer with 8:11 to go put the Bulldogs up 61-59, and pushed it to 9-0 before Tyonna Snow’s layup with 6:19 left made it 63-61 Drake. Specht hit another trey with 3:55 remaining for Drake’s largest lead of the game at 70-64, and Kyndal Clark added another with 1:58 left to put the Bulldogs up 75-66. From there, the Lady Bears were unable to score and the Bulldogs made their free throws for the inal margin. Bry Snow led MSU with 12 points on 6-of-9 shooting, and seven players scored at least seven points for MSU. The Lady Bears held a 46-44 rebounding margin with ive players grabbing at least ive caroms, including senior Christiana Shorter’s four boards that moved her to third in school history in total rebounds. The Lady Bears ended the season with school records for offensive rebounds (541), offensive rebounding average (17.45) and total rebound average (44.26). MSU’s rebounding average rated as the highest in the MVC since 1987, and its 1,372 total boards are the No. 6 total in league history. MSU also held on to its national lead of 25.03 free throw attempts per game, ranking sixth in MVC history with 776 foul shots on the year. Williams (9th) and Tyonna Snow (14th) both ranked in the top 15 in school history among freshman scorers.
