Missouri State starts the 2013-14 season with three things it desperately needed a year ago: depth, size and experience. As MSU head coach Paul Lusk enters his third season in Springfield, he hopes upgrading these three areas will make the difference in the club’s drive to return to postseason play. Missouri Valley Conference freshman of the year Marcus Marshall (So., St. Paul, Minn.) headlines the cast of returners after he broke the program’s freshman scoring record last year and averaged 11.5 points per night. Jarmar Gulley (Sr., Beaumont, Texas) returns after spending last season recovering from a knee injury. Gulley averaged 10.4 points and 5.8 rebounds per game as a junior in 2011-12 and is a key piece of the puzzle this winter, particularly with his rebounding skills. Other returning starters are Christian Kirk (Jr., Springfield, Mo.) who averaged 10.6 points over the last eight games as a sophomore and finished 10th in the league in field goal percentage (.522); Keith Pickens (Sr., St. Louis, Mo.) who came out of retirement for his senior season after registering 6.1 points and 4.7 boards in limited action last year; and Dorrian Williams (So., Oklahoma City, Okla.) who started 18 games and dished out 56 assists as a redshirt freshman a year ago. In all, the Bears have nine returning lettermen, a cast of five talented newcomers -- including transfers Emmanuel Addo (Sr., F, Toronto, Canada) and Ron Mvouika (Jr., G/F, Paris, France) - and added size and depth to position themselves as contenders once again in The Valley. “We’ve got a lot of working parts, and we need to see what parts work well together and most imporantly see what parts don’t work together,” Lusk said.

Included in Lusk’s list of nine returning lettermen is a pair of pleasant surprises in combo player Keith Pickens and small forward Jarmar Gulley. Pickens’ injury-plagued career appeared to be over when the Bears left St. Louis after the 2013 MVC Tournament. But over the summer, his chronic soreness and knee pain turned a corner, and Pickens announced he was ready to give his senior season a shot. 2

2013-14 Men’s Basketball Guide

““I’m excited to be back and to help be a leader on this team,” Pickens said in September. “I think we can do some good things this season, and I’m ready Marcus Marshall to do what it takes to give one more season.” As a junior in 2012-13, Pickens led the Bears in rebounding average (4.7) while playing in 30 of 33 games, starting 19 times and scoring 6.1 points per game. Gulley suffered a torn ACL during a summer league game in 2012 and missed the entire 2012-13 season. His future seemed uncertain, but he has progressed well and continues to make preseason progress to his previous form. In 2011-12, Gulley finished second on the club in rebounding (5.8), first in steals (34) and fourth in scoring (10.4). He was a two-time MVC Newcomer of the Week, ranked 10th in the MVC in FG percentage (.498) and 11th in rebounding (5.8). His ability to finish around the rim and collect caroms is a big boost for an MSU club that only out-rebounded 10 opponents all last season. “It’s going to be important that we’re a better offensive team, and there’s not doubt that Jarmar (Gulley) helps in that area, Lusk said. “He has worked on his 3-point stroke, but he also helps on the offensive glass because he’s got a nose for the ball and he’s a good rebounder.” The third-year head coach also said one of the keys to meeting this year’s challenging schedule will be providing a boost to the club’s scoring, which finished at just 59.6 points per game last season. “I think we’re going to try to be more aggressive because we have more pieces. I think we have better offensive play-

Devon Thomas (Fr., Silver Spring, Md.) who is lightning-fast with the ball, can run the floor and has a great mindset for defense. He’ll get his opportunities as a true freshman to perform at point, and his skill set may be the trump card the Bears are looking for in this freshman class. Dorrian Williams started 18 games last year, primarily working the point, and is in his third year in the program. He also proved to be a legitimate outside threat at times, knocking down 19 3-pointers and showing more confidence as the season progressed. Before an injury sidelined him for the last three games of the year, he had 8 points in the late-season BracketBusters win at Eastern Michigan, which was part of a great late-season surge for the Oklahoma City native. Junior college transfer Ron Mvouika (Jr., Paris, France) brings a legitimate scoring threat to the arsenal when he’s on the floor. He averaged 19.3 points and 8.2 rebounds at Sheridan (Wyo.) College last year, earned NJCAA All-Region IX first-team honors and led the region in scoring. His comprehension of the Bears’ offensive and defensive sets will grow as the season progresses, but he has the potential to impact the offense right away, and his passion to win is an intangible that should serve the team well. One of the most talented shooters to ever come out of the Ozarks, Austin Ruder (Fr., G, Nixa, Mo.) gives the Bears a recipe for instant offense when he’s on the floor. The sharp shooter can also run the floor, is physically tough and makes his free throws. On signing day last November, Lusk called Ruder’s shot “college ready” with Ruder’s quick release and consistent approach. The Bears will need to give the freshman time to grow, but it appears his contribution meter is already running. Senior Nathan Scheer (G/F, Washington, Mo.) is the most seasoned athlete on this year’s team. With 100 college games and nearly 2,000 minutes under his belt, he’ll take on a leadership role only a senior can truly appreciate. Scheer does the small things every championship team needs. He dives for loose balls, takes charges, understands the sets, and can knock down 3-pointers. He has earned Valley postseason awards every season, including MVC All-Bench Team and Scholar-Athlete first-team distinction last season, and his willingness to take on a variety of roles will make him a priceless commodity this winter. Sophomore Michael Simpson (G/F, Spring, Texas) is another combo player who has the ability to make shots from the perimeter and contribute off the bench. His leaping and rebounding skills are understated, and the extra time he spent in the gym this summer will help him become a more rounded and consistent contributor.

ers that have joined the program, and I think the guys who have been in the program have worked on their game.” At point guard, the Bears will have plenty of depth with Marcus Marshall emerging as the preeminent leader any time he’s on the floor. The club’s top returning scorer sees the floor well, can create off the dribble and has range beyond the 3-point arc. The Preseason All-MVC selection has expanded his game even more over the off-season and is evolving as a complete all-around guard which gives Lusk and his staff a number of combination options. Bears fans are excited about the potential of newcomer

Front Court Phenoms

Keith Pickens

The addition of Northern Colorado transfer Emmanuel Addo (Sr., F, Toronto, Canada) and freshman Tyler McCullough (C, Fayetteville, Ark.) has given Missouri State needed size, physicality and scoring potential in the front court. That’s important for several reasons, the most obvious www.MissouriStateBears.com

of which is the finding a remedy for the rebounding deficit the club suffered through last season in which MSU outrebounded just 10 foes. Addo’s best season at Northern Colorado saw him average 9.6 points and 4.1 rebounds per game off the bench as a sophomore in 2011-12. He’ll take most of his reps at the power forward spot for the Bears this winter, although he was primarily a center at UNC. That versatility, experience, physical presence and leadership ability will be key pieces for this year’s Missouri State club. McCullough is more of a traditional center who has a scorer’s mentality. He also has a nose for the ball and can rebound in traffic. Lusk and staff are excited about the long-term potential of the true freshman who has proven to be very teachable and is progressing to be an immediate contributor this season. Christian Kirk (Jr., F, Springfield, Mo.) headlines the cast of three returning front court players for Missouri State. With 39 career starts under his belt during his first two college seasons, Kirk has proven his ability to be a go-to man in the starting lineup, more than doubling his point production between his freshman and sophomore seasons, while driving up his rebound average in the process. Likewise, after jumping center 22 times early in his career, he will now settle into

Gavin Thurman (So., F, Preseason All-MVC Wichita, Kan.) is another Preseason Player of the Year power forward option for Cleanthony Early (Wichita State) the Bears this winter. Like Preseason All-MVC classmate Marcus MarCleanthony Early (Wichita State) Jake Odum (Indiana State) shall, Thurman showed Walt Lemon, Jr. (Bradley) flashes of greatness as a Desmar Jackson (Southern Illinois) true freshman in 2012Marcus Marshall (Missouri State) 13. He had four games Seth Tuttle (Northern Iowa) Ron Baker (Wichita State) in which he scored 18 points or more, including a Honorable Mention Manny Arop (Indiana State) memorable 21-point effort Tyshon Pickett (Bradley) Seth VanDeest (Drake) against his hometown Shockers at JQH Arena last January. His ability to rise over defenders and knock down jump shots makes him a tough matchup for most teams, but what could make Thurman even more special this season is his added size and rebounding skills. He came out of the blocks in the preseason grabbing more rebounds and being more physical around the rim, which could be the formula for Thurman earning more minutes and taking the next step in his career. When Coach Lusk brought in former SIU star Brad Korn as his third assistant coach last spring, Korn made an immediate impact on MSU’s low post where he has a knack for molding young players. Bruce Marshall (So., C, Fayette, Mo.) has benefitted more than anyone with that addition, showing more aggressive tendencies on both ends of the floor in the preseason. Marshall’s soft jump shot is still his bread and butter, but if he can continue to evolve defensively and on the boards, his evolution into a complete college player will continue to progress.

The Bears will host 18 games at JQH Arena this winter, take on defending NCAA champion Louisville, renew a longstanding in-state rivalry, and participate in the competitive Corpus Christi Challenge.

The Bears will also play a pair of nationally-televised games as part of the inaugural Corpus Christi Challenge, which kicks off with a pair of home games Nov. 24 (Hampton) and Nov. 26 (Lib-

Chronic knee pain caused Pickens to announce his retirement late in his junior season (3/1/13), but summer progress and a desire to play an impactful senior season have brought about his return to the Bears as a fifth-year performer. Despite being limited last season, Pickens led the Bears in rebounding average (4.7) and will bring unparalleled experience to the squad.

After tearing the ACL in his right knee on July 11, 2012 during a summer-league game, Gulley missed the entire 2012-13 season. His return is pivotal for the Bears after he averaged 10.4 points and 5.8 rebounds per game as a 25-game starter two years ago.

Quoting Coach Lusk

R

S

“He’s a big wing who is a very physical player. He’s a good rebounder, and we are excited to have him back. He’s done a nice job this summer getting ready to return to full-contact work.”

What You Need to Know

After starting 25 games and averaging nearly 9 points per game as a sophomore, Kirk is primed for a breakout campaign this winter. He’ll get more time at the power forward spot this season, which will be a more natural it for the 6-foot-8 local product.

L

Quoting Coach Lusk “Christian has worked very hard on his body to become more lexible. He’s been working on his 12-15 footer and continues to make progress after a very solid Valley season last year.”

L L A Widely regarded as one of the best young head coaches in the nation, Missouri State’s Paul Lusk is in his third year as Bears’ head coach. With the seventh-youngest team in Division I basketball last year, Lusk led MSU to its 42nd straight winning record at home and the fifth-best turnover average in the nation (10.2). The 2012-13 Bears also set highwater marks for most games against ranked opponents with six and the best single-season scoring total for a freshman class in program history. The rebuilding campaign saw the young club struggle through nine single-digit losses and a pair of overtime defeats, but a true testament to the Lusk’s impact in upholding the proud tradition was finishing in the NCAA’s top 200 in the final RPI and the top 100 in home attendance average, despite the club’s final 11-22 ledger. And for just the second time in school history, the Bears landed the MVC Freshman of the Year in Marcus

Paul Lusk Marshall, who broke Blake Ahearn’s MSU freshman scoring standard with 368 points. Marshall was the top-scoring freshman in the MVC and also landed a spot on the league’s prestigious All-Newcomer Team. MSU’s lone senior Anthony Downing was named All-MVC honorable mention, while Nathan Scheer earned a spot on the MVC All-Bench Team and MVC Scholar-Athlete first team. Christian Kirk was also a postseason honoree with MVC Scholar-Athlete second-team honors. The Bears’ “Super Six” freshman combined for 855 points (25.9 points per game), which accounted for 43.5 percent of the team’s scoring total. The MSU cubs were 18th nationally in freshman scoring percentage, 22nd in total points and 26th in points per game while combining to start 78 games in 2012-13. The busiest road schedule in school history saw the Bears log 21,373 miles of ground and air miles that included a summer tour of Costa Rica and Thanksgiving trip to Puerto Vallarta Mexico. After a couple of lastsecond defeats in the Puerto Vallarta event, the Bears started the MVC schedule with a 3-1 record, including a 70-59 home win over rival Southern Illinois. MSU finished strong too, going 3-3 down the stretch to earn the No. 7 seed for the Valley Tournament and finish 7-11 in league games (6-3 at home) after being picked eighth in the MVC’s preseason poll. In his debut season at Missouri State in 2011-12, Lusk guided guided the Bears to a share of third place in the Missouri Valley Conference, tied a school record for most road wins and finished 16-16 overall with arguably the toughest non-conference schedule in the program’s history. Close calls and tight finishes became the team’s calling card in 201112 with five overtime games and 17 games decided by single digits.

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

MSU’s 12 single-digit losses were the program’s most since 2002. Lusk’s inaugural campaign was also highlighted by a 4-0 start that included one-sided road wins at Nevada and Arkansas State. The Bears began league play with a 12-point win at No. 19 Creighton, the team’s first Top 25 win since 2008 and first-ever road win over a ranked opponent. The Bears came within an eyelash of beating Big East power West Virginia in the Las Vegas Classic and also had No. 18 Creighton on the ropes in the final seconds of a home game at JQH Arena on Jan. 18 in two potential season-changing decisions. Juco transfer Anthony Downing went on to earn a spot on the 2012 MVC All-Newcomer Team, and Michael Bizoukas, a one-year senior transfer from DePaul, led The Valley in assists and assist-to-turnover ratio. The team’s six returning lettermen were also widely publicized in 2011-12 as senior Kyle Weems closed out his career as the program’s No. 2 career scorer while earning All-MVC first team honors and becoming a finalist for the Lou Henson Mid-Major National Player of the Year Award. Fellow senior Caleb Patterson was honored with MVC Most-Improved Team honors, and the team placed two veteran players -- Isaiah Rhine and Nathan Scheer -- on the MVC Scholar-Athlete second team. Between, Downing, Jarmar Gulley and Bizoukas, the Bears claimed MVC Newcomer of the Week honors eight times, the second-highest school total in league history. The 41-year-old coach came to Missouri State after seven seasons as an assistant coach at Purdue. When Cuonzo Martin accepted the MSU job in 2008, Lusk was promoted to Boilermakers’ associate head coach under Purdue’s top man, Matt Painter, a position he held until coming to MSU. Lusk was named by FoxSports.com as one of the nation’s top 25 highmajor assistant coaches in the summer of 2010. In April 2011, Lusk was inducted into the Illinois Basketall Hall of Fame. After his first year at MSU, CollegeSportsMadness.com named Lusk its 2012 MVC coach of the year

assistant coach

A highly-regarded tactician, recruiter and motivator, Jermaine Henderson is in his second season at MSU after joining Paul Lusk’s staff on April 20, 2012. Henderson was the cornerstone of the men’s basketball program at Miami (Ohio) University for 19 years. Prior to coming to Missouri State, he spent the previous 15 seasons as an assistant with the Miami RedHawks of the Mid-American Conference, including the last seven as associate head coach. He also began his playing career with Miami, coming to the Oxford, Ohio campus in the fall of 1993. After a four-year stint as a player, he worked as a volunteer assistant for coach Charlie Coles in 1997-98 and then moved into a full-time assistant role the following summer. He was promoted from assistant coach to associate head coach in June 2005 and was an intricate part of the program’s scouting, administration, budgeting, development, mentoring, academic coordinating and recruiting. During his tenure as a player and coach, Henderson helped the RedHawks go 329-252 overall and 207-123 in the MAC. He was part of 10 postseason tournament runs, four conference titles and two MAC Tournament championships. MU played in four NCAA Tournaments (1995, 1997, 1999 and 2007) and made one Sweet 16 run in addition to being selected to the NIT in 1994, 1996, 2005 and 2006. Miami was also part of the CBI in 2008 and 2011. Henderson was a senior on Coles’ first Miami team in 1996-97, which advanced to the NCAA Tournament. He served as team co-captain that year and averaged 8.3 points and 3.4 rebounds with 16 starts. He completed his 89-game playing career with 86 three-pointers which ranked No. 8 in school history. Henderson coached 33 All-MAC players during his time at MU, including 11 first-team picks, and ten 1,000-point scorers. He also helped mold two players who went on to earn MAC Player of the Year and All-America honors in Michael Bramos (2009) and Wally Szczerbiak (1999). The native of Columbus, Ohio, went 3-3 as interim head coach for the red and white during stints in 2007-08 and 2011-12 while the late Charlie Coles tended to health-related issues. A native of Columbus (Ohio) East High, Henderson earned Street & Smith’s All-America recognition over his final two seasons and averaged 22.4 points, 9.6 rebounds and 8.1 assists as a prep senior. He was also a two-time allstate, all-conference, all-district and all-city selection. The 38-year-old is single and lives in Springfield.

He served as the Bears’ video coordinator during the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons and was part of the program’s 2011 MVC regular-season title run before replacing Trevyor Fisher as MSU’s director of basketball operations on June 11, 2012. A standout prep player at Jefferson City (Mo.) High, McMahon spent a year at Bridgton (Maine) Academy and then played four years as a Division I standout at the University of Delaware (2004-08).

video coordinator

Cody Seidel is in his second year as the Bears’ video coordinator and full-time administrative assistant. His appointment to the full-time ranks came after four seasons as a student manager under former head coach Cuonzo Martin and current coach Paul Lusk. Seidel replaced Sam McMahonClick here to hear it as video coordinator when McMahon accepted Missouri State’s position as director of basketball operations in June 2012. As video coordinator, he coordinates the Bears’ video exchange, breaks down MSU and opponents’ game film, produces highlight and motivational reels for the team, and assists with summer camps. He also works closely with the coaches and team academic counselors, assists with team academic oversight, and provides administrative support during both office hours and practices. A native of Jefferson City, Mo., Seidel joined the Bears in September of 2008 as team manager. He spent four seasons with the club and was named head manager for first-year head coach Paul Lusk for the 2011-12 season. His efforts in that capacity helped make him an easy choice to fill the video coordinator role after helping coordinate practice and travel logistics, equipment, film breakdown and mentoring the Bears’ staff of student managers.

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. During Moats’ tenure at MSU, he has hired five head coaches, while leading the charge for facility upgrades in a number of areas, including the Dr. Mary Jo Wynn Academic Achievement Center project, the Jim D. Morris Basketball Complex, future renovations at Plaster Sports Complex, and the implementation of a longrange athletics facility improvement plan. 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. 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. This past academic year, Moats’ efforts helped make the Jim D. Morris Basketball Complex a reality. The $3.7 million construction project will feature state-of-the art locker rooms, training facilities, offices and meeting space in JQH Arena. Additionally, all 16 MSU athletic programs met the NCAA’s APR requirements this past spring, while a record 157 student-athletes posted grade-point averages of 3.25 or better over the last year. 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 a son, Kirk, and a daughter, Lauren.

Keeping It In Perspective After the smoke cleared, most Bears’ fans had a better perspective on Missouri State’s 33-game journey through the 2012-13 season. Despite the often-frustrating stretches through the team’s 11-22 campaign, the foundation was clearly established for the program’s future with a solid cast of young talent consistently proving its mettle against consistently older and more experienced clubs. The Bears hit the hardwood with the seventh-youngest program in the Division I ranks, and got 43.5 percent of their points and 78 starts from their six freshman players. The 855 points scored by the “Super Six” frosh ranked 22nd nationally among all Division I programs and was the top collective freshman scoring effort in MSU history. The Bears also ranked 18th nationally in freshman scoring percentage and 26th in freshman points per game (25.9). Headlining the cast of newcomers for the Bears was St. Paul, Minn., native Marcus Marshall who became just the second Bear to earn Missouri Valley Conference Freshman of the Year honors, joining Blake Ahearn (2003-04). Marshall topped Ahearn’s MSU freshman scoring standard in the last game of the season when he dropped 25 points on eventual NCAA Final Four squad Wichita State in the MVC Tournament quarterfinals. Marshall finished with 368 points, was the top freshman scorer in the MVC and tied an Arch Madness freshman scoring record with his 25-point game against the Shockers. Gavin Thurman also shouldered some of the attention among the Bears’ newcomers as he earned Valley Newcomer of the Week honors on Jan. 28 and finished as the fifth-best freshman scorer in the league for the year. He also Gavin Thurman was part of a record-setting freshman class that combined to produce 855 points and 43.5 percent of the team’s scoring.

finished the year 13th on MSU’s freshman scoring list with 214 points. Despite their youth, the Bears led the MVC and finished fifth in the nation in fewest turnovers per game (10.18). In fact, the club’s turnover average was the lowest in program history. Also significant was the team’s efforts at home. The Bears boasted an 8-7 record Marcus Marshall broke the MSU freshman scoring record (368 points) in his rookie at JQH Arena campaign while becoming just the second Bear to win MVC Freshman of the Year. to push their streak of consecutive winning seasons at home to 42 in a row. Despite the rebuilding aspect of their season, MSU also finished 92nd nationally in home attendance average, marking the 28th straight year the Bears had ranked among the top 100 programs in attendance.

Early-Season Roller Coaster The season began with four straight home games as the Bears demolished Philander Smith in the opener, 89-61 with Thurman bursting out of the gates with a game-high 19 points. The Bears held strong against No. 23 San Diego State before fading late in a 60-44 setback. The team then split preliminary-round games in the Hoops for Hope Classic with Jacksonville (L 64-58) and Malone (W 82-49). With a 2-2 ledger, the Bears headed south of the border to play in the last two

MSU earned the No. 7 seed for the MVC Tournament and immediately dispatched No. 10 seed Southern Illinois in the opening round, 61-53. Marshall’s 18 points led the way as the Bears won in St. Louis for the first time since reaching the Valley finals in 2011. The next night, Missouri State ran into a buzz saw in Wichita State and fell 69-59 to the eventual Final Four club, despite 25 points from Marshall and 11 points from Keith Pickens. WSU out-rebounded MSU by a 4324 margin and got 22 second-chance points to squelch the upset bid. For his part, Downing earned All-MVC honorable mention honors and closed out his career as the program’s No. 40 all-time scorer. In the DI ranks, only San Diego State’s Jamaal Franklin matched Downing in leading his team in points, total rebounds, assists and steals. Despite using 14 starting lineups, facing six ranked opponents and traveling more than 21,000 miles, the young Bears grew up before our very eyes in 2012-13, setting the foundation for a future that looks both promising for success and full of postseason potential.

2012-13 Senior Career Summaries

Missouri State turned its 2-10 start around as Valley play opened on Dec. 30 when former head coach Barry Hinson brought the Southern Illinois Salukis to town. Nathan Scheer knocked down all five 3-pointers he took, and MSU made 20-of-23 free throws to help the Bears roll to a 70-59 win. Scheer would earn MVC Scholar-Athlete of the Week in part for his role in the season-changing win. Three days later in Evansville, the Bears nearly pulled one out of the fire as they overcame a four-point deficit in the final 15 seconds to force overtime. But Ned Cox’s jumper with 5.4 seconds left in extra time was the difference in a 62-59 loss. The Bears got quickly back on track as they knocked off Drake, 7765, in Des Moines with Downing scoring 24 and Scheer contributing a career-high 8 rebounds. Back home Jan. 8, the Bears improved to 3-1 in league play as Downing scored 24 for the second game in a row, and Marcus Marshall finished 6-for-9 from the field to add 14 to overshadow ISU’s Jackie Carmichael who had 21 points and 12 boards. The largest home crowd of the season assembled on Jan. 11 to watch No. 13 Creighton visit JQH. The Bears kept it close early and were down 32-27 at the intermission before All-American Doug McDermott scored 28 in the second half to put things out of reach. The Bluejays outscored the home club 42-25 in the second half, and McDermott finished with an arena record 39 points on 15-of-19 shooting. Thurman led the Bears with 18 points in a 68-60 loss at Indiana State on Jan. 16 as MSU surrendered a 31-27 halftime advantage and a 17-3 run by the Sycamores in the second half. A banked-in 3-pointer at the final buzzer by Walt Lemon, Jr., pushed Bradley over the Bears in Peoria, 69-66, on Jan. 19 and then the Springfield faithful saw MSU play No. 20 Wichita State close on Jan. 23 with Thurman

rounds of the Hoops for Hope Classic in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico over Thanksgiving weekend. In the semifinals, the Bears dominated SEC power South Carolina for more than 39 minutes before the Gamecocks connected on a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer to force overtime. With their pressure defense, the Bears forced 25 turnovers but USC pulled away late for a 74-67 overtime win. In the consolation game against SMU, Missouri State found itself down 41-32 with 12:49 to go before a furious comeback saw Marcus Marshall drill a go-ahead 3-pointer for the Bears with just 16.6 seconds remaining. But just like the previous night, the Bears fell victim to a last-second basket with Nick Russell knocking down a jumper with 8.3 seconds to go to lift the Mustangs to victory. Anthony Downing was named to the all-tournament team in Puerto Vallarta after he averaged 18.0 points per game on the trip. The two nail-biting losses in Mexico to close out November sent the Bears into a tailspin that culminated in eight straight defeats -- five by double figures. But the cure soon came with the start of MVC play as the young Bruins began maturing with the new year.

GAME 2

Nov. 9, 2012, JQH Arena, Springfield, Mo. Missouri State 89, Missouri Western 61

Nov. 17, 2012, JQH Arena, Springfield, Mo. (23) San Diego State 60, Missouri State 44

Five Missouri State players scored in double figures, including three freshman, as the Bears secured an 89-61 win over visiting Philander Smith in the season opener for MSU. Freshman standouts Gavin Thurman, Marcus Marshall and Drew Wilson led the way for MSU which won its 10th straight home opener. Thurman scored 19, Marshall added 16, and Wilson had 12 points and a game-high 11 boards Christian Kirk (14) and Anthony Downing (12) also posted double figures for MSU. The Bears broke the game open late as Thurman scored MSU’s final 10 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, to push the home club’s 22-point lead to 27 in the final 2:19 of the contest. The Panthers climbed within 15 points three times in the second half, including a 12-2 run that got PSC back within 59-44 with 11:26 remaining. But Kirk, who scored eight consecutive MSU points earlier in the half, ended the MSU dry spell with a layup with just over 11 minutes to go to end the threat. At the seven-minute mark, Kirk threw down his third dunk of the night, and Nathan Scheer struck with his second 3-pointer of the contest just seconds later to put the Bears up 73-51. The lead tetered between 18 and 22 points from there until Thurman’s outburst late in the game. Redshirt freshman Dorrian Williams had a game-high 8 assists for Paul Lusk’s Missouri State team, which had 23 assists to 10 turnovers on the night. Alvin Nance scored 11 points for PSC, which shot 17-for-52 (.327) from the field, 5-for-23 (.217) from bonus distance and 22-for-26 (.846) at the line. In the early going, the Bears used an 11-0 run to end the first half and took a commanding 45-28 lead into the intermission. Missouri State trailed by as many as five points in the first stanza. A pair of free throws by Nance put the Panthers ahead 9-4 at the 14:40 mark, but MSU tied the game just over a minute later on a 3-pointer by freshman Michael Simpson. After a 20-20 tie at the 9:13 mark, MSU capped a 12-2 run over the next three-and-a-half minutes with Downing scoring seven points in the stretch that resulted in a 32-22 lead with just under five minutes to go. After a four-point play by Clayton Busby brought the Panthers back within 3428 at the 3:34 mark, the Bears closed out the first stanza with 11 straight points, including five by Thurman, to lead by 17 at the break.

Despite holding 23rd-ranked San Diego State to 32.2 percent shooting, the Bears couldn’t overcome a strong Aztec defense in a 60-44 setback at JQH. In a back-and-forth game of offensive runs for both clubs, SDSU saved its biggest spurt for crunch time, sealing the victory with a 19-5 scoring outburst after the Bears had trimmed the margin to four points with just over seven to go. The Aztecs (2-1) got back-to-back 3-pointers from James Rahon and Chase Tapley to start their critical scoring run that would ultimately turn a 41-37 game into an 18-point cushion in the closing minutes. Jamaal Franklin scored seven of his game-high 22 points during the late run that the Bears could not answer. San Diego State powered its late push with a strong defensive effort that limited the Bears to just 16-of-57 shooting for the game and held the home team without a field goal for more than five minutes down the stretch. The Aztecs also gashed the Bears on the boards to the tune of a 52-34 edge in total rebounding. The Bears showed few jitters early on against the nationally-ranked Aztecs, using 3-pointers by Dorrian Williams and Keith Pickens to build a six-point lead by the first media timeout. But San Diego State’s defense would clamp down to hold MSU scoreless over a five-minute span to allow the visitors time to erase their deficit. JJ O’Brien’s field goal at the 11:59 mark made it an 8-8 game, but the Bears took advantage of an administrative technical foul assessed to SDSU two minutes later to kick off a 6-0 run. Anthony Downing knocked down both free throws to put MSU back on top, and Pickens converted a reverse layup before a Nathan Scheer steal led to a Downing bucket for a 14-8 Bears lead. The Aztecs, which hit on just 4-of-22 (.182) attempts from beyond the arc, overcame an 0-for-10 start from 3-point range to knock down a pair of crucial threes in the closing minutes of the half to take control of the scoreboard with a 10-1 run, turning a tie game into a 29-20 lead at the break. San Diego State stretched its lead to double-digits three different times in the first three minutes of the second stanza, but the Bears had an answer each time stay within striking distance. After an O’Brien tip-in at the 17:26 mark made it a 36-26 game, MSU would answer with a Christian Kirk basket and a Downing jumper from the left corner to slice the margin to six points with just over 13 minutes to go. The Bears wouldn’t get closer until Downing’s running one-hander with 7:21 left on the clock made it a 41-37 affair.

Behind a balanced offensive attack and a strong defensive effort, Missouri State built a commanding first-half lead and never looked back in an eventual 82-49 victory. The Bears were successful on a season-best 10-of-21 (.476) 3-point attempts and buried MU with a 36-15 run over a 15-minute stretch. Christian Kirk’s 15-point, 8-rebound effort paced the Bears’ attack, while Marcus Marshall tallied 15 points on an efficient 5-of-7 shooting night to go along with four assists, and Anthony Downing knocked down 4-of-7 attempts from beyond the arc to finish with 15 points as well. The lopsided victory was powered by a solid Bears’ defense that held MU to just .340 (17-of-50) shooting from the floor, marking the third time in four games MSU has limited an opponent to 34 percent or less shooting this season. The Bears also forced 16 Pioneer turnovers, which they converted into 26 points. Conversely, MSU handed out 19 assists while committing just six turnovers. After a slow start, the Bears heated up behind a balanced scoring front that featured nine different players in the scoring column in the first half en route to a 38-22 lead. The Bears held the Pioneers without a field goal over the first 10 minutes of the game as MU missed its first 11 shots, while the MSU offense converted on 10-of-16 shots from the field over a nine-minute span to take control with a 20-4 scoring run. After owning the interior in the first half to the tune of a 24-12 scoring advantage in the paint, the Bears turned their attention to the perimeter in the second, burying four triples--including two more by Downing--over the first nine minutes of the half to stretch the lead to 30 points. Keith Pickens’s jumper in the paint with 18:23 to play started a 24-9 run over a 10-minute stretch that would ultimately seal the win for the Bears. The Bears would coast from that point, expanding the bulge to as many as 36 points in the closing minutes. MSU finished the night with big advantages in points in the paint (40-26), points off turnovers (26-5) and bench scoring (35-17). Pickens posted a gamehigh 10 rebounds for the Bears, who out-boarded the Pioneers, 42-36.

Jacksonville rode a red-hot second-half shooting performance to a doubledigit advantage over Missouri State, then held off the Bears’ frantic rally to notch a 64-58 victory at JQH Arena. JU’s Keith McDougald led the way for the visitors with 17 points, including a critical bucket with 34 ticks left on the clock that helped stem the Bears’ late push. The Dolphins, who shot .520 (13-of-25) from the field after intermission, led by as many as 14 points before the Bears whittled the margin to one point with just under two-and-a-half minutes to play. After a pair of Keith Pickens free throws made it a 59-58 contest and McDougald misfired from beyond the arc, MSU would have four shots at knocking down the go-ahead field goal, but the Dolphins defense would hold. Following the Bears’ third offensive rebound of the possession, McDougald finally corralled Gavin Thurman’s 3-point miss, then drove the lane and converted from close range to give JU some much-needed breathing room with just over a half-minute to play. MSU failed to get a shot off on its next trip down the court, and McDougald knocked down a pair of free throws with 11 seconds left to ice the victory. The close finish came on the heels of a torrid Jacksonville shooting effort in the middle stages of the game that saw the visitors threaten to blow the contest wide open. JU caught fire from the field midway through the opening half to turn the tide in a back-and-forth contest. The Dolphins used a 13-4 scoring run to take control of the game and build a 30-26 halftime advantage. The visitors kept the heat on the Bears to start the second stanza by cashing in on eight of their first 12 field goal tries to stretch the margin to double figures. Five different Dolphins scored as part of a 12-2 run that turned a four-point game into a 46-32 advantage for JU--the largest lead of the night for either club. Trailing 52-38 with just under nine minutes to play, the Bears began their comeback, as Thurman scored five straight points in a span of 37 seconds, and Anthony Downing converted 1-of-2 free-throw attempts to pull MSU to within eight. The two teams traded free throws until Keith Pickens went on a personal 7-0 run to slice the JU lead to just three points. The Bears’ junior scored in the paint with 6:08 to go to start the spurt, then converted two free throws before banking home a trey from the left wing to make it a 56-53 game with 4:43 left.

A desperation three-pointer by South Carolina’s Michael Carrera found its mark as time expired in regulation, and the Gamecocks pulled away late for a 74-67 overtime win in the Hoops for Hope Classic semifinals. Carrera finished with 18 points, while LaShay Page scored a game-high 22 for USC, which overcame 25 turnovers. Missouri State had a pair of three-point leads in the final 33 seconds of regulation but missed two critical charity shots down the stretch to open the door. Up 55-53 with 33.2 to go, Christian Kirk was intentionally fouled on a wideopen drive to the basket. He missed the front end, but converted the second to push the MSU advantage to three. Dorrian Williams was fouled on the ensuing inbound play after the Bears retained possession, but he missed the front end of the one-and-one, and South Carolina called a timeout to set up a play for Page who scored with 23.8 to go. The Gamecocks then fouled Marcus Marshall, who had a team-high 17 points for MSU, and the freshman knocked down both free throws with 12.2 ticks left to push the Missouri State edge to 58-55. On the final sequence of regulation, the Bears’ pressure defense had South Carolina in trouble as they pushed USC point guard Eric Smith out near the timeline in the final seconds. Forty feet from the basket, Smith wheeled an off-balance pass to Carrera just right of the circle, and the freshman found all net on his shot as time expired. In overtime, Marcus Marshall was once again the step-up player for Missouri State as he knocked down an authoritative pull-up jumper just 22 seconds into the extra period. But the Bears would go the next four minutes without a field goal, missing four shots, two free throw attempts and two turnovers in that span. Meanwhile, the exhausted Gamecocks rallied behind the Bears’ mishaps and got a floater from Brenton Williams to fall at the 1:43 mark as the shot clock expired to gain a 64-60 advantage. MSU would get no closer, as the Southeastern Conference foes made 10-of-12 free throws from there. Williams sliced a 3-pointer through with 31.3 ticks left for the Springfield club, while Anthony Downing scored a pair of lightly-contested buckets late to account for the final seven-point margin. Downing and Kirk each had 16 points for Missouri State, which missed out on 12 charity points, going just 16-for-28 (.571) at the line.

A jumper by Nick Russell with 8.3 seconds to go was the difference as SMU escaped with a 62-61 win in the third-place game of the Hoops for Hope Classic. The Bears took a 61-60 lead briefly on a 3-pointer by Marcus Marshall with 16.6 seconds left before Mustangs’ coach Larry Brown called a timeout to set up the winning play. Nearly everyone in the Puerto Vallarta International Convention Center knew SMU would turn to Russell who finished with a gamehigh 25 points, but Marshall knocked it out of the SMU star’s hands and out of bounds on his first drive to the basket. However, the Mustangs didn’t misfire again, triggering the in-bounds play directly to Russell who knocked down a short jumper. The Bears rushed down the court in the deciding moments, hoping to get the last score of the evening, but Marshall’s three from the left wing was blocked. No foul call was made as time expired on Marshall’s shot, and the horn sounded to dash MSU’s hopes. Anthony Downing, who was named to the all-tournament team had 20 points and a game-high 8 rebounds for Missouri State, while Marshall finished with 18, and Christian Kirk scored 8. The comeback effort by Paul Lusk’s Bears looked as gritty and determined as the one the previous night against South Carolina. Down 41-32 with just 12:49 to go and reeling from a barrage of foul calls, the Bears began stepping up against SMU. Dorrian Williams dropped in a 3-pointer just 14 seconds after the team faced its largest deficit of the night, and on its next possession Missouri State turned to Tomie Aromona who drilled a trey from the left baseline to make it a 41-38 game. Then, at the 8:27 mark, Marshall knocked down his third 3-pointer of the night to tie the game at 43. Downing and Keith Pickens would do their part late in the game to keep the Bears in it as they converted game-tying field goals in traffic. Downing hit a pair of game-tying 3-pointers in the span of two minutes, while Pickens’ tip-in was his only bucket of the night, but a huge one with just over five minutes left. At the 3:56 mark, Downing’s final trey of the night knotted the score at 51, but foul calls down the stretch caught up to MSU. The Mustangs would benefit from five charity shots during a clutch spot in the game, including a traditional 3-point play by Jones with 1:54 to go. Russell later got to the line with a whistle away from the ball to put SMU up 60-55 with 38 seconds left.

Missouri State shot less than 30 percent from the field and committed 15 turnovers in a 61-42 loss at Tulsa University, the club’s fourth straight defeat. Hometown product Drew Wilson had game highs 11 points and 11 rebounds to lead MSU. The Bears played a near-even first half, matching TU in field goals and 3-pointers, but trailed 28-22 with Tulsa getting six more free throws. The Bears stormed out of the gates in the second half, scoring the first four points on a Christian Kirk 10-footer and a Wilson steal and dunk to make it a 28-26 game. But back-to-back three-point plays by Tulsa pushed the home club back ahead by eight as Ray and Kauri Black converted big plays in the first three minutes of the second stanza. MSU cut its deficit to six points twice with Marcus Marshall hitting a pair of free throws and a 20-foot jumper over the next couple of minutes. But a dunk by D’Andre Wright and baseline drive by Shaquille Harrison pushed TU ahead by 10 to match its biggest lead to that point, 40-30, at the 14-minute mark. MSU responded with a 5-0 run with Wilson hitting a layup and getting 2-of-4 free throws to fall, while Kirk converted a charity shot at the 12:14 mark to make it a 40-35 contest. But the Bears would never get any closer from there. MSU went more than five minutes without a field goal until a Dorrian Williams leaner with eight-and-a-half minutes to play. Tulsa, meanwhile, got a pair of timely 3-pointers over a 90-second span to push its lead to 15 with just under five minutes to go, and the Bears scored just twice more -- a free throw by Marshall and a layup by Williams -- in a contest that got stretched out late. MSU finished 15-for-51 (.294) from the field and 1-for-19 (.053) from 3-point range. The Bears were 11-for-21 (.524) at the line with Marshall making 7-of-10 and Wilson making 3-of-6 at the stripe. Missouri State was out-rebounded 33-32 but got 12 offensive boards and six second-chance points. In the first half, Kirk pulled the Bears within 22-20 at the 3:20 mark, TU scored four of its last six points of the period at the free throw line, including two shots by James Woodard on what was ruled a flagrant foul on Keith Pickens. TU made both free throws, but was unable to take advantage of the extra possession from the controversail call, and the Bears scored the final bucket of the period on a floater by Williams.

Missouri State outscored visiting Oral Roberts by five in the second half, but a rough first-half performance was too much to overcome as the visiting Golden Eagles handed the Bears their worst home loss since 1980. Warren Niles had a game-high 21 points for ORU, which snapped a threegame losing streak behind a 52-percent team shooting performance. Anthony Downing scored 18 for Missouri State, including 13 in the second half. The Bears trailed 40-15 at the intermission as they shot just 20 percent from the field and 1-for-15 from 3-point distance in the first stanza. A Christian Kirk layup just under two minutes into the contest put MSU ahead 2-0, but Oral Roberts responded with 19 straight points over the next nine minutes to set the pace. MSU got a pair of free throws from Dorrian williams with just under nine minutes left in the opening period before a Kirk hook shot at 8:19 marked Missouri State’s first field goal in 10 minutes. Meanwhile, ORU shot lights out on a 15-for-27 (.556) clip in the first 20 minutes and built its largest lead of the opening half on a 3-pointer at the buzzer by Niles that gained a 25-point lead for the visiting squad. The second half started with Damen Bell-Holter scoring the first nine points of the period for Oral Roberts, the last of which pushed the visitors ahead by 30 points, 49-19. A Shawn Glover layup at the 15-minute mark gave ORU its largest lead of the night, 51-19. After another Glover jumper at the 7:01 mark made it a 67-36 game, the Bears began a 16-5 run to cut their deficit to 20. Downing scored seven points in the span of two minutes, while Drew Wilson, Williams and Kirk helped the run with solid field goals late in the half. Missouri State also got 10 points and 8 rebounds from Kirk, while Downing had a pair of assists and both of MSU’s 3-pointers. The team finished 20-for-66 (.303) from the field and tied the JQH Arena record for field goal attempts for the third time this season. The Bears were 2-for-26 (.077) from bonus distance and made 10-of-16 (.625) foul shots. MSU was out-rebounded 44-34 but committed just 8 turnovers.

A solid second-half effort for Missouri State was not enough to overcome a sizable first-half deficit as No. 22-ranked Oklahoma State got 15 points from Markel Brown to pace a 62-42 victory over the visiting Bears. Christian Kirk had 8 points and 7 rebounds for MSU, while Anthony Downing added 8 points. Gavin Thurman, Dorrian Williams and Nathan Scheer scored 6 points apiece for the Bears, who shot 46.2 percent in the second half and outscored the Cowboys 29-28 over the final 20 minutes. However, Missouri State was just 6-for-28 (.214) from the field in the first half to fall behind 34-13 at the break. MSU responded passionately out of the gates in the second half. Kirk hit a quick layup on the first possession of the half to spark the rally, Marcus Marshall made a free throw on a flagrant OSU foul call, and Drew Wilson hit a layup in the first minute. Then, Kirk connected on a turnaround jumper before a Scheer 3-pointer made it a 34-23 game at 16:48. Oklahoma State went five-and-a-half minutes without a field goal before it got a Le’Bryan Nash bucket at the 15:29 mark. Over the next four minutes, the lead teetered between 13 and 11 points for the Cowboys with Kirk scoring a reverse layup, and Thurman dropping in two quick baskets for the visitors, each one bringing the Bears back within 11 points of the lead. But after a 3-pointer by Kirby Gardner pushed OSU’s advantage to 45-31 at the 11:31 mark, the Cowboys reeled off 11 straight points. The Bears went cold for a five-minute stretch, and the home club ran its advantage to 53-31. Williams broke the cold spell with a reverse layup for Missouri State with just under seven minutes to play, and Downing capitalized on a pair of rare free throws 30 seconds later to get the Bears’ deficit to 53-35. But OSU, which was ranked No. 22 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll and No. 23 by the AP, outscored the Bears 9-7 in the final six minutes to stretch the final margin to 20. The Bears finished 18-for-54 (.333) from the field, their best shooting effort since returning from Puerto Vallarta. The difference came on the boards with OSU dominating the glass by a 46-22 margin, including 15 offensive caroms the Cowboys turned into 12 second-chance points. OSU also took advantage of its free throw chances, making 16-of-23 (.696) from the line, compared to the Bears who were 3-of-7 (.429) from the stripe in limited opportunities. MSU defended OSU to just 4-of-23 (.174) from 3-point range, marking the fourth time in nine games MSU held its foes under 20 percent from bonus range.

Valparaiso got 20 points from recently-eligible transfer Lavonte Dority and out-rebounded Missouri State by 18 to claim a 62-54 win over the Bears. MSU trimmed a 12-point second-half deficit to four points twice in the final 62 seconds. Both times, the Bears got to the line with the potential of making it a one-possession game, but failed to convert charity shots. The Crusaders, the preseason faves in the Horizon League, also got 15 points and 9 rebounds from Ryan Broekhoff and 10 points from Bobby Capobianco. Valpo quickly overcame a 26-24 halftime deficit with a 4-0 run to start the second half as Broekhoff’s 3-pointer less than a minute into the second period gave the Crusaders a 28-26 lead. Downing tied the game 38 seconds later with a quick jumper for the Bears, but VU got another trey from Dority on its next trip to take a three-point advantage again. Kirk drew the home club back within 31-30 on a jumper off a designed inbounds play at the 17:55 mark before a 6-0 run by the Crusaders over the next five-and-a-half minutes stretched the visitors’ lead to 37-30. Missouri State held Valpo to just three field goals in the final 16:17 of the contest, but the Crusaders lured the Bears into a chippy physical battle to try to win the game at the line. Valpo stretched its advantage to 12 points when Ben Boggs capped an 8-1 run with a 3-pointer from the right wing with six-and-a-half minutes to play. But the Bears responded as Marshall hit a layup with just over five minutes to go, and Nathan Scheer reeled off five straight MSU points, capped by a long ball just shy of the three-minute mark to make it 49-42. Valparaiso would attempt 18 free throws in the final three minutes, but missed three of their first six attempts to open the door. The Bears capitalized with quick baskets by Kirk and Marshall, and then a three-ball by Marshall at the 1:18 mark made it 54-49. With 62 seconds to go, Downing knocked down a 3-pointer to bring the Bears back within 56-52, and after a pair of free throw misses by Erik Buggs, MSU got the ball back. Kirk was then fouled on the way to the basket, but missed the front end of a one-and-one to keep the margin at four with 36 ticks to play. Broekhoff answered with another pair of charity shots for the Crusaders, but Downing scored behind a lightning-quick slash to the rim and a foul for a chance at a traditional three-point play with 29 ticks to go. However, the Bears once again missed a key charity shot, and the margin remained 58-54. Valparaiso converted its final four free throws to make the final margin 62-54.

Seven-foot-five center Sim Bhullar had a career high 25 points, and New Mexico State shot 54 percent from the field to dispatch the Bears, 71-51. Anthony Downing scored 17, and Gavin Thurman added 10 for the Bears who dropped their eighth in a row to fall to 2-10 on the young season. The Aggies overcame 16 turnovers and tallied just five offensive rebounds, but took control of the game with a 12-0 run that started late in the first half. NMSU scored the final 10 points of the first period after the Bears had trimmed an early six-point deficit to 24-23 on a pair of Downing free throws with 5:27 to play. The Aggies then reeled off 10 straight points and extended their 34-23 halftime lead with the first bucket of the second stanza. Marcus Marshall broke the cold spell with a free throw at the 19:11 mark of the second for Missouri State. MSU’s woes extended nearly eight-and-a-half minutes without a field goal before Downing got a layup to fall at the 17:18 mark that made it a 42-27 game at the time. On New Mexico State’s next trip, Tyrone Watson scored for the Aggies to push the home club’s lead to 17, its largest until the final two minutes of the night. Watson’s shot was one of just three field goals New Mexico State would score over a nine-minute span, while the Bears made runs to trim their deficit to 11 three different times. Thurman scored three times in that span for the Bears, Drew Wilson had a dunk back, and Downing accounted for seven points on the run, including a key trey that made it a 58-47 contest with 5:20 remaining. But just like the first half, the final five minutes belonged to the Aggies. With most of its starters still on the floor late, New Mexico State stretched its advantage with three dunks in the final two-and-a-half minutes. The exhausted Bears’ defense featured four freshmen on the floor most of the second period, and MSU continued to give NMSU’s ball handlers a hard time until it ran out of gas late to let the final margin get away. Missouri State also collected 30 rebounds, including 10 on the offensive end, and committed 12 turnovers. New Mexico State got 30 points in the paint on the night, compared to just eight by the visitors.

A slow start to the second half by Missouri State and solid inside play by Alabama A&M was the difference in AAMU’s 59-47 victory over the visiting Bears. Marcus Marshall scored a game-high 16 points as the only MSU player in double figures. Alabama A&M got 16 points and 14 rebounds from Demarquelle Tabb, while Jeremy Crutcher scored 12, and Brandon Ellis added 10 points. After taking a 25-24 lead into the half on a 3-pointer at the buzzer by Gavin Thurman, the Bears appeared to have momentum on their side. But after the intermission, the Bulldogs (3-6) made five of their first 11 shots on a 13-2 run in the first four minutes to sprint out to a 37-27 advantage. The visitors would get no closer than eight the rest of the game, thanks in part to a 40-23 rebounding advantage by Alabama A&M and 24 Bulldog points in the paint. The Bears limited AAMU to 23 field goals and forced 8 turnovers, but were able to convert just 8 second-half field goals en route to a .333 shooting percentage over the game’s final 20 minutes. After a put-back by Justan Banks at the 15:48 mark made it a 37-27 game, MSU came out of a timeout with a quick basket by Kirk to cut its deficit back to single figures. But A&M responded with two quick layups in less than minute to stretch the Bulldogs’ lead to 12. Later in the second half, Marcus Marshll started a mini-run by the Bears, and classmate Michael Simpson responded with a power layup to get it back to 41-33. But, the Bears would convert just one field goal over the next five minutes and trailed 50-37 with 7:38 to play. Marcus Marshall dropped in five unanswered points to get the Bears back within eight at the 6:53 mark, including his second trey of the game. But Missouri State managed just one field goal -- a bucket by Downing at the 1:46 mark -- the rest of the game to fall by 12. The Bears’ five freshmen in uniform accounted for 36 of their 47 points. For the game, MSU was 18-for-47 (.383) from the field and 3-of-10 (.300) from long range. The Bears, who dropped their seventh straight, were 8-for-12 (.667) at the line and collected 23 rebounds, including 6 by Downing, with just 3 turnovers on the night. In the first half, Thurman’s trey gave the Bears a one-point edge and helped the visiting squad shoot 41 percent from the field in the first half. MSU went on an 8-2 run to end the half after trailing 22-17 at the 4:21 mark.

GAME 14

Dec. 30, 2012, JQH Arena, Springfield, Mo. Missouri State 70, Southern Illinois 59

Jan. 2, 2013, Ford Center, Evansville, Ind. Evansville 62, Missouri State 59 (ot)

MSU got 16 points from Anthony Downing and a career-high 15 from Nathan Scheer to turn back visiting Southern Illinois, 70-59, in the MVC opener. The Bears shot 54.1 percent from the field and 87 percent from the free throw line to break an eight-game losing streak and improve to 20-3 in Valley home openers since joining the league in 1990-91. MSU also got double figures from Marcus Marshall who tallied 11 points and a team-high 6 rebounds. The Salukis, who trailed 39-32 at the intermission, came out of the locker room with a purpose to start the second period. Coach Barry Hinson’s squad scored 12 of the first 14 points in the second half and led 44-41 after a pair of free throws by Desmar Jackson at the 14:56 mark. The Bears, however, seized control from there and went on a 17-2 run over the game’s next six minutes with four 3-pointers in that stretch, including two by Scheer. MSU matched its biggest lead of the game on a trey by Marcus Marshall at the 6:14 mark that made it a 58-46 contest. Southern scratched back late in the contest with a layup by Jackson and putback by Jeff Early on back-to-back trips to cut the Salukis’ deficit to 62-55. But Missouri State used a strong running layup by Marshall to regain control and then made 6-of-8 free throws in the final 1:41 to seal the victory. The Bears finished 20-for-37 from the floor and 10-of-17 (.588) from bonus distance. MSU was also 20-for-23 at the line and out-rebounded the visitors by a 26-20 margin. Paul Lusk’s troops committed just eight turnovers on the night and got 28 points off the bench with MSU’s reserves combining to shoot 9-of-11 from the field, including 5-of-5 by Scheer -- all threes. The win was the seventh straight for Missouri State in the series with SIU, which dates to 1957. After a warm reception for Hinson in pregame introductions, the 7,662 JQH Arena faithful saw three ties and four lead changes in the early going of the classic maroon vs. maroon rivalry. The Bears then found a groove and took over on a trey by Gavin Thurman that made it a 16-13 game at the 12:22 mark of the opening period. Just over four minutes later, the Bears went on an 11-2 run that saw the home club build its advantage to 37-25 on a 3-ball by Marshall. The Salukis ended the half with a 7-2 spurt, including treys by Brown-Surles and Jalen Pendleton in the final 3:37.

Missouri State battled home standing Evansville to the third overtime classic between the clubs in four meetings, only to fall short, 62-59. The Bears got 17 points and 9 rebounds from Anthony Downing, while Nathan Scheer added 10. Evansville was led Egidijus Mockevicius with 18 points, while Troy Taylor added 19 rebounds for the Purple Aces. Taylor’s carom total was just three shy of an MSU opponent record and was the most by a guard in the Missouri Valley Conference in 25 seasons. MSU nearly pulled off a miracle comeback, overcoming a four-point deficit in the final 15 seconds with a key basket by Scheer with 7.6 seconds to go before Downing stole the inbound pass and scored the tying layup with 4.4 to go to force the extra period. In overtime, Evansville went 5-for-8 from the field, including a key jumper by Ned Cox with 5.4 seconds left to seal the win. Downing launched a 35 footer at the horn in MSU’s attempt at another miraculous tying basket, but it fell just short. Early in the second half, MSU fell behind by double figures for the first time when a pair of free throws by Egidijus Mockevicius made it a 27-17 game just over two minutes into the period. A jumper by Colt Ryan a minute later made it 29-19 before the Bears began their run. A put-back by Keith Pickens and a flurry of 3-pointers -- two by Scheer and one by Gavin Thurman -- over a two minute span brought MSU back within 3230 at the 12:46 mark. Colt Ryan ended the 12-3 MSU run with a jump shot 20 seconds later to give UE a four-point cushion. That’s when Downing took over for the Bears. The club’s lone active senior reeled off the Bears’ next 8 points, including two go-ahead baskets in a twominute stretch. After the clubs exchanged leads and broke two ties, Thurman put MSU on top again with a huge 3-pointer at the 3:49 mark. The Bears eventually built that into a 47-43 lead with a Pickens basket at the 3-minute mark. The home team got to the foul line four times in the final 2:18 and made all four shots. A pair of foul shots by Ryan capped an 8-0 run by the home team with 15.3 to go gave the Aces a 51-47 lead before MSU’s impressive last-minute heroics.

Missouri State got 24 points from Anthony Downing and held visiting Illinois State to a season-low scoring total in a 62-55 victory over the Redbirds. The Bears led by as many as 12 in the second half and held on late as Downing made 6-of-8 free throws in the final 68 seconds to secure MSU’s second conference win in a row. row. Downing also contributed a career-high 8 assists, while Marcus Marshall added 14 points for the Bears. MSU used a 13-0 run late in the opening period to overcome their largest deficit of the game. After a layup by Johnny Hill with just under five minutes to go in the first half gave the Redbirds a 20-17 advantage, Downing scored 9 points during a three-minute, 14-second stretch to give MSU a 30-20 lead. ISU trimmed the double-figure deficit to 32-25 at the half and then rallied around senior Jackie Carmichael to open the second period. Carmichael, who finished with 21 points and a game-high 12 rebounds, scored Illinois State’s first 9 points of the second period, including a dunk that made it a 38-34 contest. On the dunk, Hill was whistled for a technical foul for taunting, and the Bears made one of the two technical shots. Moments later, Kaza Keane knocked down a trey for the Redbirds to bring ISU back within 39-37. The Bears, however, had an answer and embarked on a 10-0 scamper over a four-minute stretch to increase their lead to 49-37. Nathan Scheer knocked down a pair of key 3-pointers, Marshall sliced through a 17-footer, and Downing answered Keane’s trey with a driving layup. The cumulative effect of the run caused ISU coach Dan Muller to use a timeout with 10:12 to go. The Valley’s preseason No. 2 team responded quickly as Hill scored on a traditional 3-point play, Bryant Allen nailed a floater, and Carmichael had three points on the 8-0 run by the Redbirds in the span of less than three minutes. Ahead 49-45 with 7:26 to play, Downing ended Illinois State’s rally and seemed to will the Bears to victory from there. At the 7:08 mark, he drove to the basket and scored a contested layup. After ISU trimmed its deficit to 53-50 with four-and-a-half to go, Downing got to the rim again and pushed the home club ahead by five. And after Carmichael made it a 56-52 game with 71 seconds remaining, it was Downing who answered the call down the stretch, making 6-of-8 free throws in the clutch, including four in a row to seal the victory. Downing made 7-of-10 field goals overall, and connected on 2-of-4 3-pointers.

Anthony Downing scored 24 points, and Missouri State shot 51 percent from the field to capture its first road win of the season, 77-65. Gavin Thurman added 13 points for the Bears, while Marcus Marshall scored 11, and Keith Pickens added 10 as MSU claimed its sixth straight win over the Bulldogs. Nathan Scheer also pitched in with a game-high and career-high 8 rebounds for Paul Lusk’s squad. The Bears trailed for the first 97 seconds, but never fell behind again after Downing tied the game up with his first field goal of the night. MSU built its advantage to 16 points in the first half and led 36-26 at the intermission. Drake opened the second half with a 12-4 run in the first four minutes to make it a 40-38 game after a 3-point play by Utah transfer Chris Hines. The Bears responded with a 3-pointer by Marshall to give the visitors some breathing room, 43-38. But Drake rallied again with a basket by Hines and a contested jumper by Ben Simons made it a one-point contest with 14:16 to go. Missouri State pitched a shut out for the next four-and-a-half minutes and stretched its lead to nine with a Downing layup and three consecutive baskets by Pickens, including his first dunk of the year, to make it 51-42 with just over 10 minutes remaining. Drake took advantage of a trio of traditional 3-point plays over the next three minutes to pull back within 55-53 just just over seven minutes on the clock. But once again, the Bears had an answer. A 30-foot bomb by Downing gave the Bears a five-point cushion before he made a free throw with just under 5 minutes to play. Pickens closed out the 6-0 MSU outburst with a baseline pull-up jumper that made it a 61-53 game at the 4:05 mark. Mark Phelps’ squad put together one final rally from there, collecting layups from Jordan Clarke and Simons over the next minute to make it a four-point game. But Thurman’s second trey of the night at the 2:05 mark found its mark and put the maroons ahead 64-57. The Bears made 11-of-12 free throws from there and closed out their second double-figure victory in conference play. The Bears bounced back from a 1-for-7 start at the charity stripe to finish 19for-28 (.679) at the line, matching a season high for free throw attempts.

Jan. 16, 2013, Hulman Center, Terre Haute, Ind. Indiana State 68, Missouri State 60

No. 13 Creighton got a JQH Arena record 39 points from Doug McDermott, including 28 in the second half, to push the visiting Bluejays past MSU, 74-52. The Bears were led by Keith Pickens with 11 points and 4 rebounds, while Anthony Downing and Gavin Thurman scored 10 apiece. MSU held serve in the first half to force four ties and 10 lead changes, but let the visitors go into the intermission with a 4-0 run before the break. Creighton collected a 3-pointer by Jahenns Manigat with 35 seconds left in the opening stanza to give CU a 32-27 advantage at the midway point. Creighton let McDermott take over from there. The junior tallied Creighton’s first 18 points of the second half and made his first 10 shots, pushing the visitors ahead 50-32 just over seven minutes into the second period. He made 10of-11 field goal attempts in the second period alone and 15-of-19 for the game, to hand the Omaha club its 10th straight victory. The Bears kept clawing and used the energy of its largest home drawing of the season to cut their deficit to 13 with just over eight minutes left to go. Backto-back 3-pointers by Nathan Scheer and Michael Simpson made the score 57-44 at the time. But as they did all night, the visitors rallied behind McDermott who knocked down a trey and later made all three free throws from a soft shooting foul to push the Jays back ahead by 21 two-and-a-half minutes later. MSU held CU to just one field goal in the final 3:38, and got its final shots from freshmen Simpson and Bruce Marshall to close out a frustrating second half. The Bears were out-rebounded by a 35-22 margin on the night, but collected 10 caroms on the offensive end, including four by Pickens. Coach Paul Lusk’s squad finished 22-for-58 (.379) from the field, with 11 field goals in each half, and a disappointing 5-for-23 (.217) from 3-point range. MSU got to the foul line just four times, making three, with the Jays committing just 10 fouls. MSU also had just eight turnovers and collected five steals. Nine Missouri State players scored, including 19 collective points from the five freshman in uniform. Marcus Marshall sat out with an ankle sprain.

Missouri State’s Gavin Thurman scored a game-high 18 points, and Anthony Downing added 12 points and 7 rebounds, but a series of second-half runs pushed home standing Indiana State past the Bears, 68-60. After holding a 31-27 lead at the half, the Bears gave up a quick bucket by Justin Gant to start the second stanza, but answered with a 3-pointer by Marcus Marshall to move ahead 34-29 inside the first minute. But the Sycamores throttled control away from the visitors over the next six minutes, going on a 17-3 run and forcing five MSU turnovers to lead 46-37 with 12:45 to play. With just over 12 minutes to go, MSU scored on back to back possessions to make it 46-42 after Downing scored, and Dorrian Williams dropped in a long 3-pointer. But Dawon Cummings single-handedly carried ISU for the next six minutes with only Thurman managing points for the Bears until Pickens made one of two free throws with 7:37 on the clock. Devonte Brown extended the Indiana State lead to as many as 14, scoring six points in a 10-1 Sycamores’ run that gave the home club a 60-46 advantage with three-and-a-half remaining. Downing started a 6-0 Bears’ spurt from there with a pair of free throws. Thurman then knocked down a 15-footer before a Downing runner brought the visitors back within 60-52 with just over two minutes on the clock. And, in the final 90 seconds, Indiana State missed 5-of-10 free throws to give Missouri State a chance. Thurman pushed the deficit back to single digits with a long jumper with 79 seconds remaining, and then with 27.4 left, Nathan Scheer collected a steal and knocked down a long trey that made it 66-60. MSU then fouled Lucas Eitel who missed both free throws and opened the door even wider. But Missouri State failed to capitalize on the opportunity, and after Scheer forced a contested 30 footer, ISU snagged a critical carom to get back to the line. With the game in the balance, Cummings made both free throws to seal the win for the Sycamores and send the Hulman Center crowd of 5,593 home happy. The Bears also got 9 points from Christian Kirk and 7 from Keith Pickens. In the first half, the Bears never trailed after Thurman, in his second career start, came out firing with the Bears’ first 9 points in just under five minutes. A short jumper by Kirk at the 14:32 mark made it an 11-4 game to match the visitors’ largest lead of the opening period.

Cleanthony Early had 17 points and 11 rebounds to lead visiting Wichita State past Missouri State, 62-52. The Bears dropped their fourth straight league game despite a career-high 21 points from Wichita native Gavin Thurman and 14 from Anthony Downing. The victory for the 20th-ranked Shockers was anything but a cake walk. MSU scored the final 7 points of the first half to trail 25-21 at the break and then opened the second stanza with a 12-0 run. Thurman sparked both surges for the home club as he scored Missouri State’s last 9 points of the opening period and then added 7 in the first four minutes after halftime. Thurman’s second trey of the night gave Missouri State a 33-25 advantage with 16:17 remaining before Early got the Shockers on the board with a 3-pointer of his own. Downing then retaliated with a 20-foot jumper to put the home club ahead 35-28 with just over 15 minutes left in the contest. The tides turned quickly from there. WSU would reel off 16 unanswered points over the span of five-and-a-half minutes to take a 44-35 lead just past the midway point of the half. Freshman Dorrian Williams ended the six-minute dry spell for the maroonclad Bears to make it a 44-38 game, and the Shockers’ lead teetered between six and eight points until the 4:27 mark. That’s when a layup by Carl Hall, who finished with 15 points off the bench, pushed Wichita’s advantage back to double figures, 55-45, and a transition layup by Demetric Williams at the fourminute mark ran WSU’s lead to 12. Downing scored the Bears’ last seven points in a two-minute span to keep the fight going, but the Shockers made 5-of-6 free throws in the clutch to seal the victory. WSU made just 37.0 percent (20-for-54) of its shots, the club’s second-lowest percentage of the season, and was 5-for-21 (.238) from long range. Gregg Marshall’s club tallied 14 second-chance points on 14 offensive rebounds and turned the ball over just nine times to overcome its third-lowest scoring total. MSU’s freshmen accounted for 33 total points, including 2 by Drew Wilson who had a team-high 7 rebounds. Thurman finished 8-for-17 from the field and led the club in scoring for the third straight night.

R

A banked-in 3-pointer at the buzzer lifted home standing Bradley past Missouri State, 69-66. The Bears overcame a 16-point deficit to tie the game with 4.3 seconds remaining on a drive to the bucket by Anthony Downing. MSU then applied pressure to the Braves on the in-bound play and pushed Walt Lemon, Jr., out deep on the right wing where he heaved a desperation shot toward the basket, which caromed off the glass and in for the win. Lemon had a game-high 20 points for the Braves, while MSU was led by Gavin Thurman, Downing and Marcus Marshall with 13 apiece. The Bears matched a season high with 15 turnovers, but out-rebounded the larger Bradley club 33-25 and used a 58.3 percent shooting clip in the second half to mount the comeback effort. The Bears also produced their highest-scoring half of the season to date with 46 points in the second stanza, while MSU’s six freshman combined for 43 points on the afternoon. After trailing by 15 at the break, MSU stormed out of the gates in the second half, reeling off the first six points of the period and capping an 11-2 run in the first three minutes to pull within 37-31. Bradley pushed back ahead by double figures briefly as Lemon snagged a steal and took it coast-to-coast at the 15:41 mark to make it 41-31, but the Bears kept their focus. Keith Pickens started a Bears’ 6-2 run with an offensive rebound and layup, followed by a 15-footer by Christian Kirk as the shot clock expired, and a steal and layup by Downing that made it a five-point game with just under 14:00 left. After Bradley center Will Egolf picked up his fourth foul at the 11:46 mark, the Bears reeled off five unanswered points at the line to climb within 50-47 at the midway point. The home club then manufactured an 11-2 run from there to go up by 10 with eight-and-a-half minutes remaining. Bradley kept a double-figure lead with 3:57 to go when a free throw by Kirk made it 63-53. But MSU got a pair of 3-pointers from Thurman, a traditional 3-point play by Marcus Marshall and a tip-in by Dorrian Williams to make it a 66-64 contest with 1:03 left. In the final minute, the Bears forced BU’s Jake Eastman into a missed bonus ball from the left corner and called a timeout with 14.9 seconds on the clock. Downing found a seam from the top of the key and drove to the basket to tie the game with 3.7 seconds showing. The officials reset the clock to 4.3 after the replay review, giving Bradley time to get the ball to Lemon for the win.

Jan. 30, 2013, CenturyLink Center, Omaha, Neb. (21) Creighton 91, Missouri State 77

For the first time on record, Missouri State had four freshmen in the starting lineup, but it was the team’s upper classmen who rose to the occasion as the Bears secured the season sweep over visting Drake, 78-72. Anthony Downing matched a career high with 26 points, while Keith Pickens smashed his career-best scoring effort with 19 points for MSU. Ben Simons led Drake with 19 points, while Micah Mason netted 17 behind five 3-pointers. Missouri State shot a season-best 56.3 percent (27-for-48) from the field, including a collective 15-for-21 (.714) shooting effort in the second half. Paul Lusk’s squad overcame two 11-0 runs by the visitors to snap a fourgame skid. The first came late in the first half after the Bears jumped out to a 24-14 lead when Downing knocked down a runner off the glass at the 8:37 mark. Drake then collected a bucket by Seth VanDeest and three straight treys from Mason and Simons to give the visitors a 25-24 lead. The Bears composed themselves and ended the scoring drought of more than six minutes when Nathan Scheer knocked down a 3-pointer with 92 seconds left in the half to help the Bears take a 29-28 lead at the break. Drake scored the first 11 points of the second half and ended a 14-3 run with a 42-32 advantage. MSU started the comeback trail from there with Gavin Thurman and Marcus Marshall scoring MSU’s first six points of the second stanza in the span of 68 seconds. A Marshall driving layup at the 16-minute mark made it a 42-35 game and gave the Bears needed life. Downing rattled home a bucket with just over 13 minutes on the clock to make it a 46-43 contest as part of his 18-point second half. Pickens shouldered much of the comeback load from there as he tallied 9 points in the span of less than four minutes. His steal and dunk at the 7:40 mark put the Bears on top, 56-55. Drake recaptured the lead briefly, but Downing knocked down a baseline jumper and critical 3-pointer over the next minute to extend MSU’s lead to 61-57 with 6:19 remaining. MSU would build its lead to as many as eight after that with a pair of Marcus Marshall free throws at the 2:31 mark making it a 69-61 game. The key blow came after a Simons bank shot made it a 70-65 game with 95 seconds left to keep Drake in the hunt. With the shot clock winding down on MSU’s next possession, Downing drove right and pitched to Scheer who answered the bell with his second clutch 3-pointer of the game, giving MSU a 73-65 lead with just under a minute to go.

No. 21 Creighton got 29 points from junior sensation Doug McDermott and knocked down 15 3-pointers to hold off Missouri State, 91-77. The Bears got 19 points from Gavin Thurman, 14 from Dorrian Williams and 10 apiece from Marcus Marshall and Christian Kirk. MSU also shot 54.7 percent from the field and committed just nine turnovers on the night. The Bluejays scored the final five points of the first half to take a 44-32 lead into the locker room and needed less than five minutes in the second half to stretch its advantage to 17. Williams tallied five of the Bears’ first seven points in the second half and finished with a team-high four 3-pointers. Later in the half, CU used a flurry of 3’s to stretch its advantage to 20, as it built a 67-47 lead at the midway point after McDermott’s second trey of the second stanza. CU was in the double bonus over the final nine minuts and capitalized on its charity opportunities to stretch the lead to 24 with 7:45 to go, its largest of the night. The young Bears kept clawing and retaliated with a series of 3-pointers of their own. MSU knocked down six treys in the final 7:27 -- including three by Williams and one apiece by Nathan Scheer, Michael Simpson and Marcus Marshall -- to make the final count respectable. The Bears finished 29-for-53 (.547) from the field and 11-for-20 (.550) beyond the arc, their most 3-pointers of the season. MSU was an efficient 8-for-11 (.727) at the line, but was out-rebounded 34-21, giving up 11 offensive caroms and 15 second-chance points. McDermott finished 5-of-7 from 3-point range and tallied a game-high 10 rebounds. Creighton also got 15 points from Ethan Wragge, 14 from Austin Chatman and 10 from Grant Gibbs.

On a night when nothing seemed to fall for either team, a 14-2 run by Northern Iowa midway through the second half proved to be the difference as the Panthers held off Missouri State, 48-37. After Christian Kirk gave MSU a 29-26 lead with 11:30 left in the game, UNI reeled off 14 of the game’s next 16 points over the next seven-and-a-half minutes. The Panthers’ advantage reached 40-31 on a 3-pointer by Chip Rank with 4:19 to go. Keith Pickens’ put-back at the four-minute mark kept the Bears within seven, but UNI ignited with another 3-ball from Marc Sonnen -- his only trey of the night -- and a layup by Jake Koch to push the home club back ahead 47-35. The Bears were led by Anthony Downing with 9 points as they were held to an all-time low point production in Valley play. Dorrian Williams and Kirk added 8 points apiece. Downing and Drew Wilson added 7 rebounds to the MSU ledger as the visitors out-rebounded UNI, 35-31, including 12 offensive boards. The Bears were 15-for-55 (.273) from the field, 3-for-21 (.143) from bonus distance and 4-for-4 in limited free throw opportunities. The Bears committed just 6 turnovers on the night. UNI was led by Anthony James with 14 points, while Koch added 11. In the first half, Missouri State executed a near-perfect defensive game plan, but home standing Northern Iowa benefited from a pair of unusual technical fouls to push ahead 20-19 at the intermission. MSU had an answer for every UNI rally, leading by as many as five points after Williams knocked down back-to-back 3-pointers over the span of two minutes, 25 seconds. Williams’ second trey of the half gave the Bears a 17-13 lead with 3:24 to go. UNI responded with a trey of its own with Matt Bohannon drilling a long-range shot with 2:32 on the clock to bring UNI back within one. On its next possession, MSU ran an alley-oop play for Wilson who missed the dunk but was whistled for hanging on the rim too long in effort to protect himself. James knocked down both subsequent penalty free throws to give the Panthers their first lead of the night, 18-17. Forty-five seconds later, the Bears got the ball to Wilson on the low blocks again. This time, he forced through a one-handed jam to give the lead back to the visitors. But, the officials whistled him for his second technical foul for taunting, sending James back to the line for two more free throws to give UNI the one-point halftime edge.

Missouri State overcame an 11-point second-half deficit and a late charge by visiting Evansville to claim a 62-61 victory. Marcus Marshall led three MSU players in double figures with 14 points while Christian Kirk scored 12, and Nathan Scheer contributed 11. Colt Ryan scored a game-high 24 for the Purple Aces. A week after the Bears rallied from a 10-point deficit to beat Drake in Springfield, Paul Lusk’s club found the same magic at JQH Arena. A 12-2 run by UE in the first five minutes of the second half gave Evansville a 38-27 lead, its largest of the afternoon. The Bears managed just one field goal in the first six-and-a-half minutes of the second stanza but started climbing back with a jumper by Gavin Thurman and a 3-pointer by Marshall in less than a minute to make it 38-32. MSU would close the gap to three points twice and two points twice over the next eight minutes and began their winning surge at the most critical junction in the contest. A reverse layup by Kirk brought the Bears back within 54-52 with just over five minutes on the clock before Ryan stepped up with a clutch trey for the Aces to extend Evansville’s lead back to five with 4:41 to go. The Bears responded with a gut-check 7-0 outburst over the next two minutes as Marshall scored a pair of free throws and a leaner off the glass before a solid 3-pointer by Scheer put the Bears on top for the first time since late in the first half. Scheer’s third trifecta of the game made it a 59-57 contest with 2:42 left. Ryan tied the game up with a couple of free throws at the 1:50 mark and then gave Evansville a 61-59 lead with a jumper with a minute to go. But the Bears called a timeout with 52.3 seconds left and got another monumental 3-pointer moments later when Anthony Downing drained a long ball from the left wing to give Missouri State a 62-61 lead. The Bears held off three more Evansville possessions from there, forcing three UE misses in the clutch to improved to 6-6 at home. Missouri State out-rebounded the Aces 16-15 in the second half, but lost the overall battle for the boards, 34-31. The Bears also outscored Evansville off the bench, 30-10 and held UE to just 8 second-chance points. Downing, who led the Bears with 4 assists, scored 9 points to snap his streak of 19 straight double-figure scoring games at home.

Marcus Marshall had a career-high 19 points for Missouri State, but home standing Wichita State was too much as WSU closed out a 79-50 win. Cleanthony Early led No. 22 Wichita State with 16 points and 8 rebounds as the Shockers shot 49.2 percent from the field and dominated the boards, 47-22. MSU cut into its 15-point halftime deficit early in the second stanza with a pair of free throws by Gavin Thurman and a layup from Keith Pickens that made it a 42-29 game with 17:49 left. More than a minute later, Dorrian Williams made it 43-30 with a free throw, but the Bears would get no closer the rest of the way. Wichita state reeled off the next 10 points over a four-minute stretch to lead 53-30 with 12:39 on the clock. WSU later added insult to injury with three dunks over the next three minutes to push ahead by 26 and later led by as many as 28. Gregg Marshall’s Shockers knocked down their ninth and final 3-pointer of the night with 38 seconds to go to take their biggest lead of the night with the final 79-50 margin. Anthony Downing added 9 points for the maroon squad with Williams adding 4 assists. The Bears committed 10 turnovers in their worst loss of the season. Ehimen Orupke had a game-high 10 caroms for the home team, which finished with 17 offensive rebounds and 18 second-chance points. In the first half, Early had 11 points off the bench to pace a late-half surge by the Shockers to lead, 42-27 at the intermission. The Shockers went to their bread-and-butter in the early going as Carl Hall notched WSU’s first five points. The Bears rallied back to lead 7-5 on a Marcus Marshall 3-pointer just over three minutes into the game, but WSU dropped three treys on consecutive possessions to lead 14-9 at the first media timeout. The Bears battled back within one twice from there with a 3-pointer by Bruce Marshall making it 18-17 at the 11:15 mark and three free throws by Marcus Marshall making it a 21-20 contest at the 10:32 mark. But it was all Shockers the rest of the way. WSU went on a 12-1 run over the next seven-plus minutes to lead 33-21. Christian Kirk broke a nine-minute MSU field goal drought with a hook shot at the 2:49 mark to draw the visitors within 33-23. But WSU ended the half with a 9-3 outburst, including a trey by Early, the seventh of the half for the home club. February 9, 2013, Charles Koch Arena, Wichita, Kan.

Missouri State opened the second half with a 12-4 run and made 7-of-8 free throws in the final minute to secure a 67-65 win over visiting Indiana State here Tuesday in Missouri Valley Conference play. Jake Odum had a game-high 21 points with 9 rebounds and 7 assists for the Sycamores who entered the night in a three-way tie for the conference lead with Wichita State and Creighton. The Bears were led by Marcus Marshall who posted his second straight 19-point performance to match a career high, while Christian Kirk scored 14 off the bench, and Keith Pickens added 11. Missouri State’s outburst to begin the second period extended a 29-28 halftime advantage for the home club to 41-32 at the 14:07 mark. MSU later extended its lead to 53-39 on a pair of Marshall free throws with just 8:53 left. But Greg Lansing’s Sycamores rallied over the next five-and-half minutes with Lucas Eitel knocking down his first 3-pointer of the night to ignite a 19-4 surge by the visitors. Manny Arop’s third 3-pointer of the evening with 2:41 left made it a 58-57 game. With just over two minutes to go, the Bears got a deep layup by Pickens to push them back ahead by three. But Odum got back to the line 26 seconds later to make it a one-point game once again. In the final minute, the Bears got two huge defensive stops, forcing R.J. Mahurin and Odum into off-balance shots with Anthony Downing and Nathan Scheer answering the bell with key rebounds and a two free throws each on the other end. Scheer’s two makes with 43.1 seconds left redeemed a pair of misses 46 seconds earlier and put MSU on top 64-59. With 30 seconds left, the Bears got another defensive stop, but Justin Gant gathered the offensive rebound, ISU’s 10th of the night, and finished with a layup to keep the Trees within striking distance. Out of an MSU timeout with 21.3 ticks to go, Dawon Cummings fouled out to send Downing back to the line where he made one of two shots, but pushed the home team back up by four. Odum gathered the Downing miss and took it coast-to-coast for a layup with 10 seconds on the clock to make it 65-63. But Marshall put the game out of reach with 8.1 seconds remaining on a pair of charity shots that kept it a multiple-possession advantage for the maroons. Mahurin scored just before the final horn to make the final margin, 67-65 and end a two-game ISU winning streak.

Southern Illinois 62, Missouri State 54

E

February 16, 2013, SIU Arena, Carbondale, Ill.

Northern Iowa started the second half with a 10-2 run to extend its lead to 11 and held off a late challenge from Missouri State to claim a 69-63 road win over the Bears at JQH Arena. MSU got a career high 25 points from freshman Marcus Marshall and 12 from Christian Kirk, while Keith Pickens contributed 7 rebounds to go with 9 points. UNI, which won its sixth straight game, was led by Seth Tuttle with 19 points and 17 boards, while Anthony James tacked on 17 points, including 7 in the final two minutes, in addition to a game-high 8 assists. After falling behind 40-29 to start the second half, the Bears began inching their way back in the game. Over a four-minute span, the Bears got a 3-pointer from Pickens, a traditional 3-point play from Anthony Downing and a trey by Marshall to climb back within 44-38 at the 12-minute mark. Pickens closed the gap to three with a 3-point play just over two minutes later, making it 46-43 with 9:44 to go. But UNI answered the run with a trey by Matt Bohannon and a layup by James in traffic to push its lead back to 10 when James capitalized on a block call and knocked down a short jumper to make it 55-45 with just under seven minutes left. The Bears got to the line 10 times over the next five minutes, including a three-shot opportunity by Marshall that started a 10-4 MSU run. A pair of charity shots by Kirk with 2:24 on the clock made it a 59-55 contest. The four-point margin held until the final minute of the game. A missed free throw by James with 41.3 seconds to go opened the door briefly for the home team, and a layup by Kirk with 33.7 ticks to go made it a 64-61 game. Marshall fouled James on the ensuing in-bound play, but this time the senior from St. Louis did not miss. James’ two charity makes opened the Panthers’ lead back to five points, and the Bears’ last-minute heroics dried up when Pickens was muscled into a missed a close-range jumper by a physical Northern Iowa defense with 20 seconds remaining. Ben Jacobson’s squad made 3-of-4 free throws from there, and Downing scored on a coast-to-coast layup to run the final margin to 69-63. With the help of Marshall’s 25 points, Missouri State’s freshman class upped it season scoring total to 752, breaking the club’s old record of 735 frosh points set by the fabled 1963-64 newbies of Coach Bill Thomas.

Missouri State got 20 points from Anthony Downing and 8 rebounds from Keith Pickens, but home standing Southern Illinois had an answer for every Bears’ run in a 62-54 Salukis’ win. The Bears started the second half on a 10-2 run to trim a 31-22 halftime deficit to one. Downing notched 9 of the Bears’ points in the first 3 minutes, 39 seconds of the second stanza that made it a 33-32 contest. Southern rallied from there with 6 unanswered points to make it 39-32, including 4 by Jeff Early who shared game-high honors with Downing with his 20 points for SIU. Just over seven minutes into the second half, Christian Kirk etched the Bears closer with a 15-footer on the right baseline, and Dorrian Williams converted a layup after a hustle play by Pickens who tipped a contested rebound six times before dishing to Williams to make it 39-36 at 11:47. A minute later, Gavin Thurman made it a 40-38 game with a 20-footer from the left wing. Williams returned to the line at the 10:05 mark with a chance to tie the game, but missed both ends. The Bears fought for two offensive rebounds after the second miss, but could not convert. SIU then reeled off 10 unanswered points to give the Salukis their biggest lead of the night, 50-38, at the fiveminute mark. The Bears hung around and cut their deficit to six twice more. With just over a minute to go and the SIU possession in jeopardy with a diminishing shot clock, Downing gathered a steal and headed down the sideline for a dunk to bring the Bears back within four. But a late whistle called Downing out of bounds on the drive to the bucket, nullifying the basket. SIU converted 3-of-4 free throws thereafter and stretched it back to a 9-point lead. In the final minute, SIU made 10-of-12 charity shots and finished 16-for-20 (.800) for the game from the line. Kirk had 13 points off the bench to help MSU’s efforts. The Bears had just 10 turnovers, including 4 in the second half, and shot 43.5 (20-for-46) percent from the field. The Bears were just 3-for-16 (.188) from beyond the arc and finished 11-for-14 (.786) at the line.

Feb. 23, 2013, Convocation Center, Ypsilanti, Mich. Missouri State 57, Eastern Michigan 54 A furious comeback by Missouri State in the final six minutes pushed the visiting Bears past Eastern Michigan, 57-54, in the Ramada Worldwide BracketBusters. Anthony Downing scored 16, and Marcus Marshall added 11 for the Bears who trailed 45-36 with 6:07 to play. MSU rallied for 21 points from there, including 9 by Downing down the stretch to steal one from the home standing Eagles. EMU got 19 points from Derek Thompson and 11 from J.R. Sims. But it was a dunk by Jamell Harris with 8:23 remaining that appeared to put the game on ice, giving Eastern a nine point lead at the time. The cardiac kids from Springfield then started to find their rhythm. Downing scored in transition on a great pass from Nathan Scheer that led to a 3-point play to cut the deficit to six. After the Eagles retaliated with a quick transition bucket, Scheer knocked down a 3-pointer from the left corner to trim MSU’s deficit to five, and then before the final media timeout of the afternoon, Marshall scored in transition after a steal by Dorrian Williams to make it 47-44. The Bears kept the pressure on with Scheer scoring on a tip-in off a Downing miss to make it a one-point game. Downing then gave the Bears their first lead since the first two minutes of the contest, manufacturing a jumper from a spin move from the elbow that gave the Bears a 48-47 lead at the 2:46 mark. A minute later, it was Williams’ turn to shine as the freshman converted a 3-point play to give MSU a four-point lead. Downing capped the 14-0 run by making both ends of a critical one-and-one free throw opportunity with 48 seconds left. With their biggest lead of the game, 53-47, the Bears had some breathing room when Thompson drained his fourth trey of the contest to make it a threepoint game with 40 seconds left. Downing would sandwich 2-of-4 free throws between EMU possessions to help the Bears build their lead back to 55-50. EMU’s Matt Balkema then banked a short jumper with 5.0 seconds showing. On the ensuing in-bound play, Marshall was fouled and turned to protect the ball. The officials called Marshall for a flagrant elbow foul on the play. He knocked down both of his free throws to give MSU a 57-52 lead with 4 seconds remaining, and EMU also made its two shots from the flagrant call and kept possession in a three-point contest. Not giving the Eagles an opportunity to shoot a potential game-tying shot, the Bears fouled Antoine Chandler immediately. He missed the front end of a one-and-one free throw chance, and Scheer snagged the rebound.

The team picked to finished second in the Missouri Valley Conference played like a squad competing for a league title in the final week of the season as Illinois State rolled to an 86-50 win over visiting Missouri State. Tyler Brown scored a game-high 25 points, Jackie Carmichael added 16 points and 11 rebounds, while Johnny Hill scored 15 for ISU, which shot 59.2 percent from the field. The Bears got 12 points from Anthony Downing and matched the Redbirds on the board, 32-32, but a 30-6 run over 10-minute period in the second half sealed MSU’s fate. After Downing’s free throw with 16:54 to go made it a 46-34 contest, Illinois State reeled off the next 13 points before a layup by Nathan Scheer more than five minutes after Downing’s shot ended the spurt. The Redbirds retaliated with a 17-4 run from there to lead 76-40 with just 6:43 to go. With the game well in hand, ISU continued to pad its lead after a pair of treys from John Wilkins. It wasn’t until MSU head coach Paul Lusk called a timeout with 2:39 to play that Illinois State pulled its starters after the lead climbed to as many as 39. The Bears added a layup by Gavin Thurman and a 3-pointer by Ryan Carmichael in the final three minutes to reach the 50-point plateau. But the club’s worst defeat of the season was decided much earlier in the contest. ISU shot 56 percent from the field in the first half and took a 43-25 lead into the intermission. Six Bears’ turnovers led directly to 12 Illinois State points, and ISU jumped out to a 16-7 lead in the first five minutes, 45 seconds. Back-to-back treys by Hill and Brown midway through the opening period pushed the home club up 29-13. The Brown 3-pointer came after he recorded a steal and layup, then snagged the ensuing in-bound pass beyond the circle and jacked up a long-range bomb. The Bears trimmed a 17-point deficit to 13 late in the half with a layup by Keith Pickens and single free throws by Pickens and Downing to make it 36-23 at the 3:38 mark. But aside from a 20-foot jumper by Michael Simpson, the Bears did not score the rest of the half, while ISU padded its lead with 7 down the stretch.
