Current Records: Missouri State 4-4; Little Rock 4-5
What to Know
The Little Rock Trojans will be returning home after a three-game road trip. They will square off against the Missouri State Bears at 7:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Jack Stephens Center. Little Rock is out to keep their three-game home win streak alive.
This past Saturday, the Trojans lost to the Arkansas Razorbacks on the road by a decisive 93-78 margin. Little Rock got double-digit scores from four players: guard Marko Lukic (23), guard Isaiah Palermo (17), guard Marko Andric (12), and forward Kevin Osawe (10). Lukic had some trouble finding his footing against the Colorado State Rams last week, so this was a step in the right direction.
Meanwhile, MSU was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 74-68 to the Brigham Young Cougars. One thing holding MSU back was the mediocre play of guard Donovan Clay, who did not have his best game: he played for 34 minutes but put up just six points on 2-for-10 shooting.
Both of these teams will be looking to put their recent losses behind them and walk away with a victory. If MSU want to win, they will need to focus on stopping the Trojans’ Marko Lukic, who had 23 points in addition to five rebounds, and Isaiah Palermo, who dropped a double-double on 17 points and ten boards along with six assists. We’ll see whether or not they are up to the challenge.
