SPRINGFIELD, Mo--For the second time this season, Missouri State Bear Marcus Marshall has suffered a knee injury.

But this time, it's more severe and Marshall will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. 

It's not known how long Marshall will be out.

The injury happened Saturday night with about five minutes left in regulation in the Bears overtime loss to Wichita State.

The incident was not really apparant, and Marshall actually talked his way back into the game.

Marshall had missed four games early in the season after spraining his left knee.

"It's part of it.  It's part of athletics and it's part of sports," said MSU coach Paul Lusk.  "You don't like it but you can't hang your head and I'm pretty sure that Indiana State or anyone else in the league is not feeling sorry for ourselves.  And I'm not going to allow our players to feel sorry for themselves.  We have to go and play.  But it affects you.  It affects you strategically, technically from a basketball standpoint.  Kids are resilient.  And they need to rally around each other and be ready for their opportunity.."
