Missouri State lost more than just a tough overtime game against Wichita State this past Saturday; they also lost sophomore guard Marcus Marshall to a torn meniscus.
Marshall’s out indefinitely after suffering the injury to his right knee; surgery is scheduled to take place this Wednesday.
Missouri State head coach Paul Lusk said in a statement:
We’ll know more about his prognosis after the surgery. It’s unfortunate because he was just starting to get into a rhythm after his earlier injury, and it has been a very fragmented season for him. Obviously Marcus is a big part of our program and our future, and it’s unfortunate when these things happen. But we will push forward as a team, and continue preparing for the two big road games we have ahead of us this week.
The Bears have rebounded nicely this season as they currently stand at 12-4 — already one win better than their 2012-13 season total — and look like contenders in the Missouri Valley. Marshall, who was last year’s Missouri Valley Rookie of the Year, is a big reason for the resurgence as he’s the Bears’ leading scorer at 14.3 ppg.
