Paul Lusk has never lost to the Bulldogs as the Bears coach. But, Drake gets off to a quick start, Chris Caird with the three, 13-4 Bulldogs.
Missouri State battles back, Nathan Scheer with the three from the near corner, 17-14 Bears.
Then, Ron Mvouika with the three from the top of the arc, 23-18 Missouri State.
Drake would go on a run, nice dish to Trevor Berkley for the one handed dunk, and the Bulldogs owned a 38-35 halftime lead.
And would add to that in the second half, Caird again with the three, 44-40 Drake.
Missouri State's defense steps up, Jarmar Gulley with the steal, down to Mvouika, to Dorrian Williams for the layup, 47-44 Bears.
But, Drake would make one last run, Jordan Daniels with a three from the far corner and the Bulldogs snap a seven game losing streak to Missouri State 84-74.
