Missouri State with the defense as well, Ron Mvouika with the steal, the hoop and the harm, it's 30-15, he had a double double with 14 points ten rebounds.
Evansville made a late first half run, D.J. Balentine with the hoop it's 31-23 Bears.
Paul Lusk's crew would keep it up in the second half, Jarmar Gulley tips the ball loose and he gets it back for the dunk, 37-27 Missouri State.
