The MSU Bears hold off a tough Evansville team. And LSU is too much for Mizzou.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The Missouri State Bears just ended a tough three game stretch against the top three teams in the Valley.

And the Bears went 0-3.

In our Bear nation report, Paul Lusk and his renovated Bears were hoping to snap that three game losing streak against Evansville Tuesday night.

It was KOLR 10 night at the Q, what a handsome group that is.

Bears off to a quick start, Emmanuel Addo with the step back 15 footer, 4-4.

Then the nice pass to Austin Ruder for the three pointer, Bears up 7-6.

Evansville on a run, the Valley's leading scorer, DJ Balentine with the three, it's 13-7 Aces.

Then Balentine feeds the Llithuanian Egidijus Mockevicius for the dunk 17-11.

Missouri State with the defense, Ron Mvouuika with the steal and the hoop, he's the Valley newcomer of the week, it's a two point game.

Dorrian Williams with the nice feed to Jarmar Gulley for the hoop it's 23-18 Aces.

Missouri State with a late first half rally, Gavin Thurman with the three, it's 34-32 Aces at halftime.

Jarmar Gulley opens the second half with this scoop shot bears on top by one.

Then Gulley with the three, 44-40, Gulley a double, double, 26 points, 12 rebounds.

Later Austin Ruder with the ally opp to Christian Kirk for the dunk, the Bears hold off a tough Evansville team 64-61.

"I was pleased with their effort," said MSU coach Paul Lusk.  "It's never easy against Evansville. We had five guys out there who have never played Evansville.  I asked each one of them how did you like guarding that stuff.  Ron had an interesting answer and I'm not going to repeat.  But I thought we really guarded them and did some good things."


Mizzou basketball coach Frank Haith announced that St. Louis native Cameron Bead-Scheid will join the Tigers and be eligible after the first semester of next season.
Bead-Scheid transfered from Notre Dame, he averaged 32 points and ten rebounds a game his senior season at Cardinal Ritter.
Meanwhile the Tigers looking for an SEC road win at LSU tonight.
And the LSU Tigers Johnny O'Bryant the third with the jumper; it's 7-2 LSU.
Mizzou's Jordan Clarkson with the three ties it at 10.
But LSU answers Shavon Coleman with the three, it's 18-10 LSU.
Then Mizzou goes on a run.  Jabari Brown three pointer, making it a one point game.
Tony Criswell inside and the reverse layup; we're tied at 26.
Jabari Brown's next three gives Mizzou a 29-26 lead.
He had a career high 28 points.
But LSU hangs in there, Jordan Mickey with hoop, and LSU wins  77 to 71.
