Missouri State had shot just under 60 percent from field goals.

Bears Ron Mvouika had a career high 28 points in the game and was named the Valley's newcomer of the week.

He went six for six from three point range which set a Bears single game record.

"At the time I didn't realize it,' said Bears Guard Ron Movouika.  "I knew I was doing a good job but I was trying to win the game.  And my teammates kept playing for me, so I kept shooting.  And it went through.."

"Do you know that Ron's going to score 28? No,"f said MSU coach Paul Lusk.  "But you know that he has offensive ability.  But it's time to move on.  This will be the last time I talk about Marcus Marshall.  We've got our guys in the lockerroom who are going to play.  We don't know when Pickens is getting back.  The guys that are in there have to play.  They have to produce.  And they have to get better."
