SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The Missouri State Bears were back in action at JQH Arena Wednesday night.

Paul Lusk and his crew looking for their third straight win to open the season.

And trying to hand Grambling State its third straight loss. 

It's been a tough grind for the Tigers who were 0-28 last season as well.

Then Jarmar Gulley with the steal, over to Marshall for the layup, it's Bears by five.

Missouri State running the floor, Devin Thomas on the break, he gets the reverse layup off the glass, 11-4.

Then the Bears started bombing from the perimeter, juco transfer Ron Mvouika with the three from the wing, 25-11.

Grambling State trying to get something going late first half, the ally opp from Chase Comier to Remond Brown for the flush.

It was a 9 point Missouri State halftime lead.

Second half, a little inside, outside action, kicked out to Jarmar Gulley with the three, Bears up 53-36.

Then the inbound pass to Tyler McCullough, spins in the paint and gets the blue collar hoop, Bears by 16.

More perimeter work, McCullough to Austin Ruder, three from the top of the key 61-40 Missouri State.

And the bears go to 3-0 with a 30 point 97-67 win.     

"I just didn't like where we were at from a mental standpoint," said MSU coach Paul Lusk.  "I thought that second group came in and sparked us the first half.  But then we kind of played to the score and played to the competition.  I was disappointed with that.  But I think we responded in the second half and now it's on to the next game.."
