Bears Top Sycamores

SPRINGFIELD, Mo--Missouri State beats Indiana State Saturday.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The bears are down to their final three games of the regular season. And sit in a three way tie for fourth place in the Missouri Valley Conference. Which made Saturday's game against the second seeded Sycamores that much more important.

Bears Jarmar Gulley with the dribble and pull up three pointer. To get MSU out to a 5-0 start.

Then, freshman Devon Thomas dices his way through the lane for the score. 10-4 Bears. Thomas would later leave with a hamstring injury.

Still in the first, Keith Pickens forces his way in for the reverse. 29-14 Bears up.

Later, the Sycamores Jake Odum hits the floater. MSU still up 32-20.

2nd half action, ISU's Manny Arop on the drive, get's it to go. And cuts the Bears lead to seven.

But the Bears would begin to pull away. Gulley with the block on defense and fast break the other way. He finds the hot hand in Austin Rudder who sinks the tripple.

Bears win 77-66. Ruder finished with 15 points.

"We don't need our guys to be great we just need them to be solid. Our three freshman were excellent tonight. Tyler McCullough was excellent, obviously Austin was excellent and I thought for a while there Devin Thomas was our best player on the floor for us during that stretch. He could just change the game and break those guys done. But, then he got hurt and we thought it was his knee but it was his hamstring," said Bears coach Paul Lusk.
