SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The Missouri State Bears will try to bounce back in the win column Tuesday night when they visit Illinois State.

In our Bear Nation report, Missouri State will try to sweep the season series against the Redbirds.   

Back in early January, the Bears beat Illinois State 78-70 in overtime.

Missouri State lost to Northern Iowa late Saturday night on a last second tip in.

But the Bears will get center Tyler McCullough back.

He's missed the last five games following a concussion and won't hold anything back.

"I mean you can't play scared.  I mean, I'm ready to dive into a pile right now.  And get my hands dirty again.  I'm not too worried about getting another concussion," said Tyler McCullough.  "I've been able to sit back and watch and see what I need to do over these last five games I missed.  I'm really ready to go out there.."
